The life of a #CFLNBGLC11 Intern: Pre-conference

Day 1 of intern training for the Central Fraternal Leadership Conference/National Black Greek Leadership Conference in good ole’ St. Louis, MO complete! Being this is my first year interning for the conference, I really had no idea what to expect, except that I was about to embark on a crazy/amazing adventure that involved late nights, early mornings, new faces, and great opportunities for learning along the way!
Our first day of training was pretty laid back, and being at a Greek leadership conference, naturally included some fun ice-breakers and “get-to-know-you” activities, along with a fabulous presentation by Jason and Mark on how to set up notice boards! We also toured the America's Center to see some of the spaces that we would be spending the next week of our lives in! The night wrapped up with a fun staff and intern bonding night at the local “Flamingo Bowl”, where yours truly scored a Turkey! =]

Overall, we had a great first day! We interns are starting to learn names, faces, and affiliations and are having some great conversations about our involvement in and love for our Greek experience! This is after all, the reason we are all here!
I am looking forward to digging deeper into the conference schedule tomorrow! We know we have a jam-packed week ahead of us but can’t wait to help work to make this conference run smoothly for all of you conference attendees! “Meet me in St. Louis” on Thursday at the registration table! Keep an eye out for all of us interns in our spiffy new orange conference oxfords!

No UPS oxfords this year? I guess Brown didn't do much for you, AFLV : )
