The Emma Coleman Frost Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is Alpha Sigma Alpha’s conference for emerging leaders. At each event, collegiate members will spend a weekend delving into a variety of topics with trained facilitators. The event steps away from traditional chapter operations and focuses on the individual’s development as a woman and a leader.

LDI curriculum will be balanced between large group and small group discussions and activities. This unique event gives collegians the opportunity to explore leadership on a personal level and gain real-world skills that they can use to benefit their chapter, campus, professional and personal communities.
