Collegiate Leadership Consultant Program
Collegiate leadership consultants (CLCs) are recent college graduates who travel to Gamma Phi Beta collegiate chapters across the United States and Canada to promote officer, member and chapter success. They provide leadership and training, guide chapters in self-assessment, facilitate workshops and provide information, suggestions and ideas.
As representatives of our international organization, CLCs gain leadership, management and communication skills. They are valuable pillars in the Sorority's structure and success. CLCs are specially trained in all aspects of Gamma Phi Beta and serve many roles while on the road, from teacher to motivator to confidante.

Gamma Phi Beta's CLC program receives significant support from the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation. We extend our sincere gratitude to the Foundation and the many generous donors that allow the Sorority to support this program.
What To Expect From A CLC Visit
CLCs are sent to help chapters grow and succeed in every area of sorority life. When your chapter has a CLC visit scheduled, your CLC will reach out with information to help you prepare for the visit.
Chapter leadership is expected to provide their CLC with a schedule of meetings and activities during their visit. CLCs will meet with the president, membership vice president, new member educator, ritual chairwoman, education vice president and various advisors.
While the CLC will need to meet with leaders, tour facilities and attend all chapter meetings, they will also want to get to know your members. You should plan to include time for her to enjoy your campus’s attractions and meet a variety of members if possible.
Your CLC will send feedback to you, your chapter advisor, and your collegiate chapter supervisor. She will be noting your chapter’s strengths and challenges, as well as special achievements and outstanding programs.
Join the CLC Team
CLCs impart direction in recruitment preparations and processes while fulfilling a critical role in Gamma Phi Beta's extension activities. As advisors to our collegiate officers in every aspect of chapter life, they work closely with a regional team of volunteers, chapter advisors and other international volunteers to support established and new chapters.
Each year, a group of recent college graduates are hired to spend nine months traveling to Gamma Phi Beta collegiate chapters, providing leadership education and support for chapter officers and members. Every CLC receives professional development and leadership skills training in the summer prior to her travels. CLCs also gain experiences and skillsets to prepare for a wide array of professional endeavors all while making a difference in the lives of Gamma Phi Betas across the country!
The 2023-24 collegiate leadership consultant (CLC) applications will open soon. We are looking for CLCs to serve as residents at newly established chapters and as traveling consultants visiting chapters across North America. It's an exciting opportunity to gain new skills, see new places, build relationships with collegians, volunteers and staff and help grow Gamma Phi!
