FARMHOUSE offers a variety of programs and conferences throughout the year to meet the needs of our members and volunteers
The FarmHouse Conclave is the biennial gathering of all chapter and alumni association delegates from throughout North America. The legislative portion of the Conclave sets policy, conducts business and gives direction to the Fraternity for the next two years. In addition to the many educational programs, Conclave programming features keynote speakers, entertainment, cultural activities, and opportunities for networking with members from every chapter.
First held in 2009, the To Be and Become: Emerging Talent Retreat is a 3-day outdoor adventure program hosted at the Heartland Center, just outside Kansas City. To Be and Become is specifically developed for FarmHouse men who have completed their new member education experience within the academic year and is held in late May annually.
FarmHouse Leadership Institute (FLI) is designed to provide leadership training and build a platform for chapter leaders to promote growth and change at their chapters. The Institute includes sessions on leadership, motivation, risk management, and strategic planning among other topics. This 4-day program builds on each piece of curriculum and culminates by developing a plan for improvement at each chapter. Held in Kansas City, Mo. each January.
FarmHouse men are called to show our promise of service to our fellow men and to the world. This international service immersion trip held at the end of the academic year is an outstanding opportunity to experience personal growth, develop a greater cultural perspective, and apply skills in much-needed relief areas of the world. The week-long trip is led by a team of facilitators to Honduras in partnership with Heart to Honduras, as the coordinating aid organization.
