Power of 7 Seminar

March 11 - March 13


THE FARMHOUSE FOUNDATION

Power of 7 Seminar

MARCH 11-13 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE


Do you remember the last time you visited your chapter, saw a FH brother or met a current undergraduate member? If you’re like me, it doesn’t matter how much time passes—when I interact with FarmHouse again, I am immediately reminded of what those transformational years did for me.

The young men I meet today remind me of the lessons I learned in FarmHouse. I remember FarmHouse is for a lifetime when I see a brother who has been a loyal friend since college or find out a colleague I have admired for years is also a FarmHouse man. Does this sound familiar?

If it does, I believe you will find the Power of 7 Seminar is an unmatched opportunity to re-connect with FarmHouse. I invite you to attend the Seminar, March 11-13, 2022, in Washington, D.C., and experience this for yourself.
