Hit the road, Jack! It's Time for Sectional Conferences!!

Pack your bags, grab a few snacks for the road and pick up your fellow chapter members! It's time to hit the road for the sectional conference season!!
Before you leave, remember that you and your chapter carry the Cardinal Principles with you everywhere you go, and are representatives of Alpha Phi Omega. That being said, it's always a good idea to review the Fraternity's Risk Management Policy  before the conference starts and remind your chapter of the standards set by this Policy. If you come across a situation that makes you uncomfortable, be sure to contact your section chair, regional director, or the Fraternity's Risk Management Director , as soon as possible.
