The 2017 Preamble Institute will be held in Albany, NY, home to the Xi Triton Charge. Delegates will arrive on Friday, January 13th for a welcome dinner and orientation, followed by two full days of educational sessions. Accommodations for the three nights (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) TBA. Departure will be on Monday, January 16th (a national holiday).

The Preamble Institute (Pi) will deliver undergraduate leaders within Theta Delta Chi the unique opportunity to work with other undergraduate leaders from Charges across North America. Pi will provided participants a setting to define and improve leadership skills, to fully understand Theta Delta Chiís values and ritual, and to develop values-based plans of action for their Charges. Attending brothers will leave Pi with a stronger commitment to Theta Delta Chi and a strong network of fraternal peers to aid them in the future.

In 2005, the 129th Grand Lodge, led by PGL Robert LoParo, Alpha '87, and GSGL Adam McCready, Chi Deuteron '02, came to the decision to nurture the undergraduates' leadership growth through a centralized leadership conference. Henceforth, the Preamble Institute was born. The Educational Foundation supports our retreat with annual grants. This yearís institute marks the 11th Anniversary for Preamble. As many of you know, the Educational Foundation held a Founderís Day of Giving initiative to assist in funding Pi.
