Community Service featured at this year’s NLDC Conference
The Sigma Chapter of Nu Alpha Kappa was chosen to host the National Leadership Development Conference (NLDC) for Nu Alpha Kappa in July 2010. The annual conference for brothers of Nu Alpha Kappa allows men from the chapters to grow in their leadership skills, interact with other brothers, and learn new ideas in order to improve their chapters.
This year’s conference saw brothers from across California, Colorado and Nevada to converge upon the UNC campus. The highlight of the weekend was the first ever community service project that was held in conjunction with NLDC. Men from the 20 chapters of Nu Alpha Kappa came to the Al Frente de Lucha Community Center to particpate in a beautification project.
Al Frente De Lucha was created to organize, establish and carry out programs designed for the advancement of Chicano/Mexicano community leadership in Weld County, Colorado and to combat absenteeism amongst Chicano/Mexicano students in Weld County educational institutions. They hope that through their efforts, they can lower the drop out rate amongst Chicano/Mexicano Students in Weld County Schools. By encouraging persons to improve their conditions through the exercise of the democratic, constitutional and legal rights of self-expression, self-organization, and participation in decision-making, policies and program affecting their lives, they can achieve the full participation by such persons in the benefits and responsibilities of first class citizenship in this society. A further purpose of Al Frente is to aid individuals in achieving their full potential and a sense of dignity and self-respect; to provide a focus and forum for developing programs and ideas designed to improve the community and the environment in Weld County, Colorado.”
NLDC was started in 1998 with the mission to empower the leadership of Nu Alpha Kappa with the skills to run their chapter effectively during the upcoming school year. NLDC is an annual event to prepare our undergraduate chapter officers and emerging leaders for the coming academic year. Chapters send delegates to NLDC in order to learn skills relating to their elected positions, gain perspectives on chapter operations from other members and bond with the brothers from each chapter.
