Note: Only 7 of the 12 Dimensions will be covered in the main BBLA sessions... but the other 5 dimensions will be available for an informal after hours discussion with the DMB Coach, as well as online. All 12 Dimensions will be detailed and printed in the conference notebook. For all 12 dimensions, the curriculum will include both Personal and Fraternal insights and applications, to meet both the needs of the individual and the chapter. As well, in a choose-your-own-adventure format, regional BBLA attendees will decide which of the seven sessions will be featured at each location, in the weeks leading up to the weekend event. This will allow the DMB Coaching Team to contextualize the content to the needs/interests of each group. And indeed, the first session after lunch will recap the Make Your Move vision of “Servant Leaders who are in the process of becoming R.E.A.L. Men who are growing as Lifegivers while developing in all Twelve Dimensions of Life.”

Event History

Regional Leadership Conferences have been an ongoing evolution of facilitator led weekends focusing on actively developing our collegiate leaders. Started originally as the President's Academy through a grant from the Phi Kappa Theta Foundation back in 2001.

In 2011, we expanded the single event President's Academy into a regional format as an effort to grow the number of participants. Since 2011, we've had over 1,500 collegiate leaders attend these conferences.

This past December, we met with our 2017 Man of Achievement, Brother Donald 'Boysie' Bollinger (University of Louisiana at Lafayette, ‘71), and shared with him our vision for the next major evolution in our leadership development.

Starting in year one of this vision, we wanted to design an experience focused on the development of a brother's individual purpose. The long term outcomes will be Phi Kap brothers living purpose driven lives, positively impacting society, Fraternity and God.

Believing in this vision, Brother Bollinger has invested $300k, $100k a year over the next three years (2018-2020) to ensure our vision becomes a reality. Starting in 2018, the RLC's have been re-branded as the Boysie Bollinger Leadership Academy.
