50 Years Of C. Rodger Wilson Leadership Conference - Tell Me Your Story

Yesterday, I was called by a highly respected brother in Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He asked if I would be willing to present a piece on C. Rodger Wilson and the 50 years of the leadership conference. I was honored to have been asked and immediately responded with the affirmative.

With only 2 days to prepare, I turn to the brothers for assistance.

The Topic: 50th Anniversary of Training for Leadership - C. Rodger Wilson.

My plan, at this point, is to do a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation that will talk about the man, his contributions to Kappa, and details on the conference over time.

After speaking with Brother Fred Black, an extremely intelligent and well traveled member, he recommended the following: "I think it would be important to talk about the new and similar challenges we are addressing over the 50 years of CRWLC. What are we trying to accomplish and how are we doing it?"

My time in Kappa (Spring '98) doesn't allow me the opportunity to experience the full history of the conference or the man.

With that written, I turn to you. What can you tell me about the man? How would you describe him? Why was he so successful and respected? What stories can you tell? What lessons can we learn from him?

Second, in following Brother Black's line of thinking, what has changed over the last 50 years? What has stayed the same? What is (was) the purpose of the conference and how close are we to meeting that vision?

Anything you'd like to share would be great appreciated. If I use your story or idea, please tell me if I may use your name in my presentation.

Feel free to share your thoughts, stories, and ideas in the comment section below. If you feel more comfortable emailing me directly, please do.
