Regional Officer Training
Regional Officer Training (ROT) is an educational program for officers to learn skills to better serve their respective chapters. The regional approach offers an opportunity to network with nearby chapters. Below are the 2020 program dates, locations, and chapters assigned to each.
Register here for a 2020 ROT by Wednesday, December 18 at 11:59 pm EST. You can track the current registration status of your chapter or colony here. Hover over column G, click the drop-down arrow, and select ‘Sort Sheet A-Z’ to find your chapter’s registrations.

Frequently Asked Questions
The program will begin at 10:45 am and finish by 4:45 pm.
Chapters are expected to send seven (7) officers:
- Vice President
- Treasurer/Finance Chair
- Corresponding Secretary
- Fraternity Education Chair/New Member Educator
- Recruitment Chair
- Risk Manager
Attendance at Regional Officer Training is a core standard of the Fraternity. All core standards must be met within a reporting period/year to maintain good standing with the National Fraternity.
If a brother in one of the seven (7) positions is unable to attend, they should find a replacement who is either on the corresponding committee or works closely with the role.
Program costs are covered in the chapter’s annual dues. Chapters are encouraged to drive to ROT and to use their Chapter Leadership Funds to cover the cost of travel and parking. For the few chapters who fly to locations, their flights will be covered by the Fraternity. Chapters who are required to drive more than 3 hours to the location will be provided hotel accommodations for Friday evening.
Each ROT is made up of an intro session, two track sessions, a set of breakout sessions, and an opportunity for each chapter to create an action plan for the next year.
Phi Kappa Psi staff members and regional volunteers will lead each session. Participants will also have the chance to interact with Phi Psi Family volunteers throughout the day.
