2023 NGLA Evening Programming  

Last Updated December 2022. Subject to change.

NGLA is excited about our Evening Programming for the 2023 NGLA Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA from February 23 - 26, 2023.


Welcome and Social Excellence is a CHOICE (8:30 pm - 10:00 pm)

Join NGLA and Phired Up for our opening session!

Choice! Every moment is a choice. Big choices -- where you’ll live, major, career, who you’ll do life with. Daily small choices -- what you say yes/no to, how you spend your time, how you interact with the world. Social Excellence is a choice…a lifestyle choice that guides and informs all your big and small choices. If you choose to attend this session, come ready to be social and connect with others in a meaningful way.

The Social Excellence Series is hosted by Phired Up.

Professionals Reception (9:00 pm - 10:30 pm)

Hosted by Greek University

You’ve done the work, now it's time to celebrate YOU! Join your fraternal colleagues at the NGLA Professionals Reception for a chance to get R.E.A.L. (Relax, Enjoy, Appreciate, Laugh)! We want you to feel great about who you are and what you do, because YOU DESERVE it. To cap off an already great evening, you're invited to choose your own adventure including a LIVE dance party hosted by the Sister/Soror duo, Emcee Tish Norman & Pretty Tammi the DJ.

Get ready to party with a purpose and kick-off 2023 at the NGLA Annual Conference!

The Extraordinary Art of Caring (When No One Else Seems to Give a F*ck)
presented by Casey J. Cornelius

Does it seem like folks don’t really care anymore? Common decency is lacking, attendance is low, and even leadership positions are going unfilled. There must be a way of re-energizing our members-and ourselves-to have more passion and empathy.

There is. And it starts with CARE.

Casey J. Cornelius has been a leading voice with topics moving the needle on college campuses and in large organizations for years. Now he is turning his attention to one of the most pressing concerns of our day: enthusiasm fatigue. Casey wants to help individuals and groups recapture the love of membership, friendship, and service by blending a message of mindset and strategy. The art of caring, he says, is extraordinary and needs to be connected to long-term goals, habits, and daily choices.

In our complicated, challenging world, what we need is care. And we need it now!
