January 13-15, 2023  |  Jameson Camp  |  Indianapolis, IN

Early bird registration deadline is December 10, 2022
Airfare (where eligible) must be booked by Dec. 22, 2022

LTW is Triangle’s annual chapter leader training, encompassing six leadership tracks designed for specific undergraduates and two for approved alumni participants. The costs for each track are subsidized by grants from Triangle Education Foundation (TEF), National Education Fees (NEFs) paid by chapters, or from Triangle operating funds, but there still is a registration fee required of each attendee. This is your (or your chapter’s) investment in your participation and growth.

Because Chapter Endowment Funds (CEFs) are used to pay NEFs, CEFs may not be used again to pay for individual registration fees. The exception is if you wish to send a second attendee to a track, you can use CEF funds to reduce the full price fee of the track registration. Please read the Cost Breakdown information carefully to understand the costs for each track and how it differs for first attendee and second attendee within each track. Contact Morgan Brickley (morgan@triangle.org) with any questions.

Here are answers to the most common questions we receive from potential attendees. If you don’t find your answer/s here, contact Morgan Brickley (morgan@triangle.org) to help!

Is it okay for us to send a substitute for our president to the PLA track?
The Steven L. Miller Presidents Leadership Academy (SLMPLA) is an endowed program which pays only for active chapter presidents or for presidents-elect. No other member may be substituted for the PLA track. All other tracks allow for various members to attend and you can substitute another member if your original delegate cannot attend.

What’s the Covid/Vaccine situation?
Please do not attend if you are sick or are knowingly exposed to anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, cold or flu within a week of LTW. We will watch health reports carefully in the weeks before the event and advise as needed. Attendees to LTW will be sleeping in bunkhouses, so in close quarters. We don’t have the ability to spread everyone out, so we take health advisories a bit more seriously than if attendees were two to a room at a hotel. We expect all attendees to: a) have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and the flu before attending; b) cancel their attendance if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or serious cold or flu within a week of travel and; c) report to us any signs of sickness, cold or flu while at the event. We will have the ability to isolate individual students who show signs of illness and will be doing temperature checks during the event.

How do Chapter Endowment Funds (CEFs) help pay for the program this year?
In the past, attendees would pay a registration fee and the chapter would request funds from their CEF to cover the educational portion of the attendee costs. Now all chapters pay a National Education Fee, which can be paid from CEFs. The sum of those fees went into an Education Fund that now pays the educational portion of the attendee costs automatically for one attendee per track. Travel reimbursements also are worked into the LTW budget, so no need to request additional CEF funds unless you wish to register more than one member for any track (PLA is one member per chapter only). For additional attendees in a track (if you want to send a second attendee to the recruitment track, for instance), you can use your CEF to cover some of the cost of the $260 additional attendee fee. See the Cost Breakdown tab for additional information.

Why is there a Registration Fee?
The $40 registration fee is your contribution/investment in the program. We find a small student investment improves participation and commitment to follow through with the expectations of the program. These fees also help pay for LTW t-shirts and other costs. Attendees will get many times this value in return. Should you not be able to attend, you can substitute another student and we can transfer your registration fee to him. If your chapter covers the registration fees, you can elect to have us bill the chapter when you register.

How do we get to Indianapolis?
For those attending whose campus address is within 350 miles of Jameson Camp, you are expected to drive. You will receive 14 cents per mile (the IRS nonprofit rate) round-trip. If your chapter address is more than 350 miles from the Camp, you are eligible for one airfare for PLA and $300 airfare credit each for Recruitment and Finance tracks. If you are eligible to fly but want to drive, you will receive $75 for each chapter attendee you bring with you (since you will save LTW in airfare). See the Travel Information tab for more details and examples.

By the way, for chapters more than 350 miles away, you might consider driving and stopping for an overnight at another Triangle chapter along the way. For instance, Pitt may stop over at Ohio State, or Minnesota might stop over at Armour. Alternatively, chapters in close proximity might consider driving together to share costs and get to know each other. If you need contacts for other chapters, let us know!

How do those eligible for airfare book their flight?
First, register for LTW. Be sure to select “FLYING” in the method of transportation. Once you have registered you will receive an email to begin the booking process. We will then connect you with our travel agent, Kim Criscuolo (Kim.Criscuolo@Altour.com). You will need to provide your legal name as it appears on your travel documents, your date of birth, airport, and preferred departure time. So that we may get the best pricing possible, we ask that you register for LTW by December 10, so we can book your travel with our agent by December 15, 2022. We will not provide reimbursement for airfare booked after December 22, 2022.

How will I get from the airport to the camp?
A Triangle shuttle van will be operating during the day on Friday. When you complete booking your airfare, we will contact you with information on where to find the shuttle and its departure times from the airport. If you need to arrive Thursday night, we will need to arrange other means of transportation for you. Once you register, you will receive more detailed instructions.

Where is Jameson Camp located?
The Jameson Camp is located just a few minutes away from the Triangle National Headquarters and the Indianapolis International Airport at 2001 Bridgeport Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46231. There is free parking in a private lot on the property.

When do I need to arrive?
LTW registration and check-in begins on Friday, January 13 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern. The program officially kicks off at 5:00 p.m. We recommend you plan to arrive to the Camp no later than 4:00 p.m., so that you can get settled before we begin. You won’t want to miss dinner! This schedule allows even those coming in from the west coast to fly in on Friday.

Am I going to have time to do homework while I am there?
You would potentially have time when the program concludes each night, but this is prime time to socialize with brothers from across the country and learn from their experiences. We respect and support your commitment to academics but encourage you to get your work done before arriving, so you can make the most of your time while at LTW.

What is the schedule for the weekend?
You can view the proposed 2023 LTW Schedule HERE. A final schedule will be provided before arrival.

Will I have free time to leave the camp?
You will be scheduled non-stop from 8 a.m. until 9 or 10 p.m. each day, but we will provide some time to interact more socially with attendees on Friday and Saturday evening. We expect all attendees to stay on Camp premises during the full weekend, as weather often can prevent leaving safely in evenings. Should you need to leave the camp for some reason, please clear that with staff.

What should I bring?

  • Dress code is casual: jeans and sweatshirts are fine
  • Linens, blankets, pillows, or a sleeping bag (we will have 60 sets on-site to accommodate all those who are flying in)
  • Warm clothes (the buildings are heated, but you’ll be walking outside between sessions and it is winter in Indiana)
  • Warm sleeping clothes (cabins are heated, but they are cabins…in the winter)
  • Towels and washcloths for the shower
  • Toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, toothbrush, etc.)
  • Shower shoes (flip-flops)
  • Medicine (if applicable) and appropriate masking to prevent exposure
  • Any Triangle t-shirts you may want to trade with others
  • Laptop or tablet; Pens & paper
  • Chargers for your devices
  • Cash or credit card for your journey
  • Materials to share: Officer binders, recruitment materials, new member education program, chapter budget, etc.

What is NOT allowed?

  • This is a substance-free event. Alcohol or other controlled substances are not permitted, even en-route to camp. Controlled substances include marijuana or CBD products, even if by prescription.
  • Violators of this policy will not be permitted to participate, will be sent home immediately at their own expense, and will be required to reimburse the Fraternity all costs. Additionally, the Alumni Chapter President and Dean of Students of their respective institution will be notified.
  • Camp policies and our insurance prohibit firearms, fireworks or any other explosive devices on premise.

Please contact Director of Leadership Programs Morgan Brickley (morgan@triangle.org) with any additional questions.

 

The cost breakdown for each officer track varies based on its specific educational content/percentage and funding available through TEF and other grants. Each track includes lodging, meals and ground transportation to and from the Indianapolis airport, as well as professional-level facilitation, participant workbooks, and other program materials. For most tracks there is some travel allowance as well.

Attendees have the opportunity to work with peers from other chapters, with Triangle National Council members and staff, and representatives of Triangle Education Foundation and Triangle Building and Housing Corporation. Come with your ideas, questions, and concerns as this is a gathering of Triangle’s top talent.

Below you will find the maximum capacity of each track and the costs to attend. Chapters may send one attendee for each track at the subsidized price, paying only the $40 registration fee. Additional attendees (more than one for any track) will not receive subsidized pricing, and must pay the full $260 cost for attendance. If you have CEF funds available to use, these can be used to reduce the full cost. See the details below for each track and contact Morgan Brickley (morgan@triangle.org) with any questions.

Through the generosity of donors and grants from the Triangle Education Foundation, reimbursements are available for some travel expenses to allow more members to attend. If you have a special situation that cannot be addressed by the process below, please contact us as soon as possible, so we can work to find solutions.

For Attendees Driving to Plainfield, IN
Mileage will be determined from campus address/zip to Plainfield, IN, via Google Maps’ shortest route. Only one reimbursement per vehicle. Parking at the camp is free and secure.

  •  Participants less than 350 miles drive from Plainfield, IN will be expected to drive. Those who drive will receive the IRS nonprofit rate of fourteen (14) cents per mile, round-trip, plus $25 for each additional attendee you bring. Share the ride with more attendees from your chapter to share costs and increase the reimbursement.

Examples: Three attendees traveling from 150 miles away would receive $92 reimbursement (300 total miles x .14, plus $50).

  •  Participants who live more than 350 miles drive from Plainfield, IN and wish to drive will be reimbursed at a flat rate of $75 for every attendee from their chapter they bring with them. If you’re driving from a far distance, consider overnighting at another chapter on the way to break up your trip and meet new people!

Example: Chapter president and two attendees from 400 miles away would receive $225.

NOTES: Reimbursements will only be made if a reimbursement form is submitted by 5 p.m. EST on January 31, 2023. Forms will be available at LTW or can be emailed to you.

For those eligible for airfare credits, there are two options:
1. The first is to ticket through our official agent no later than December 22. Triangle will cover the price of the ticket up to the allowance (full cost for PLA and up to $300 for Recruitment and Finance). Our agent/s will do their best to find flights within the allowance that get you in and out on time, but attendees will be responsible to cover any amount greater than the allowance. We only purchase refundable tickets which may increase the price. That way, if you cancel your travel or your flights are cancelled, we can request a refund.

2. The second option is for you to book your own tickets and apply for reimbursement after completion of the program. Attendance is the responsibility of the student, and you must arrive and depart on dates/times that allow full participation in the program. If you choose not to attend or are somehow prevented from attending, you should seek a credit from the airline toward future travel. We cannot reimburse your ticket costs if you do not attend. See the information below to understand the reimbursement limits.

For either option, if you need assistance estimating the reimbursement/s for your chapter’s travel, contact us at hq@triangle.org.

Fraternity chapters and many other organizations close every year due to financial mismanagement. This is a valuable program to teach the important principles that can help you throughout life.

For those driving, the driving information above applies.

Through a grant from our Expansion/Growth budget, alumni volunteers approved to be trained as Recruitment Coaches will have all registration and room/board fees covered. In return, we hope participants will be comfortable covering their own transportation costs.

For Attendees Flying to Plainfield, IN

Before you book your flight, you will need to complete your online registration for LTW and select “FLYING” as your mode of transportation. Once you are registered, we will provide Kim your name and the amount of your subsidy, and you will be cleared to book a ticket. To receive financial support for flights, you must book your travel with our travel agent by Thursday, December 22, 2022, but we will appreciate your booking by Thursday, December 8, as it will take advantage of lower fares.
