2016 AFLV West 

In April 2016, 7 UGC Council Officers headed to San Diego, CA to attend the 2016 AFLV West and National Cultural Greek Leadership Conference.  During the conference, council officers attended various keynote and breakout sessions on subjects such as Culturally Based Recruitment 101; No More Excuses: Taking Culturally-Based Organizations to the Next Level; Size Doesn't Matter; Is It Time to Use "Recruitment" and Your Organization in the Same Sentence?; Dynamic Growth Strategies for Culturally-Based Fraternities and Sororities; No One Told Me It Would Be This Hard: How to Create a Culture of Success in Your Organization; and many others.

On Saturday night of the conference, the council officers attended the annual awards banquet.  The council was surprised and humbled to be honored various times throughout the evening.  It was due to the hard work of the 2015 UGC Council that Washington State University was able to be honored.

UGC was a semi-finalist for the Kaleidoscope Award for innovation for their National Institution's Coming Out Day event in support of undocumented students.

UGC received the first-ever Pinnacle Award for Strategic Growth sponsored by LaunchPoint Solutions for their strategic growth of over 6 organizations in 2015.

UGC received outstanding achievement in 7 out of 8 categories: Academic Achievement; Council Management; Leadership and Educational Development; Membership Recruitment; Philanthropy and Community Service; Public Relations; Self Governance and Judicial Affairs.

UGC received the 2016 Multicultural Greek Community Division II Award for Overall Excellence

Congratulations to all the hard work that each organization and member contributed throughout the 2015 calendar year!
