ADGEF Seminars Debut in Chicago
By Brandon J. Willis, ETA ‘96

Alpha Chapter active members assembled at their house this past November for an educational seminar hosted by Alpha Delta Gamma Educational Foundation. The guest speaker was Eta alum, Kevin Broeckling, who is a current Dean of Students at an Illinois college. The seminar was the inaugural ADGEF event.

Throughout the seminar Broeckling shared his past experiences with the men of Alpha, presented ideas and held discussions with them on how to improve fraternity relations with the university. He addressed ways in which a fraternity can become more active and how to promote a positive image on campus, ultimately emerging as a valued member of campus life in the eyes of the administration.

The Alpha men were engaged in discussions about campus leadership, while Broeckling shared his recommendations and offered suggestions from the perspective of a college administrator. Aside from the seminar, the active members were presented with the ADGEF Scholarship rules and application forms (presented annually at convention). The seminar and ensuing discussions lasted roughly an hour and a half, followed by lunch and cocktails, provided by ADGEF.

Broeckling, Dean of Students at Benedictine University in Springfield, IL, was a perfect choice to address the active members. An ADG from the 1990’s at Quincy University (Eta), Broeckling has worked in higher education for nearly a decade and offers a unique perspective as a fraternity member and current college administrator. In addition to Broeckling, alumni from Alpha and Eta were in attendance, as well as Mr. ADG, Wayne Palmer-Ball.

The ADGEF educational seminars were conceived by the newly elected President of ADGEF, Mike Blackstock. When he began his leadership, Blackstock said that he wanted to “make ADGEF something better than it has ever been before.” He intends to host similar events across the country with different guest speakers for each event. The goal? “To make a difference by providing true educational experiences for every active.”

The next event is scheduled for Kansas City in February. Keep an eye out for an ADGEF seminar coming your way!
