FSU Alumni Association

Leadership Weekend



You're Invited!

The 2017 Leadership Weekend will be held April 6-8, 2017.

Registration is now open! Deadline to register is Friday, March 31. 

More than 80 Seminole Clubs and Chapters around the country unite FSU alumni and friends in geographic areas, fostering a continued bond of collegiate fellowship and supporting ties with Florida State well beyond graduation. At the core of a successful Seminole club is a group of dynamic leaders who represent Florida State University. Enthusiastic leadership is the most important ingredient of a Seminole Club’s success.

Each year, the FSU Alumni Association welcomes our Seminole Club and Chapter leaders to Tallahassee for a weekend of learning, relationship building and fun!

The 2017 Leadership Weekend will be held on Thursday, April 6, through Saturday, April 8. The weekend includes a full day of conferencing at the FSU Alumni Center, followed by the FSU Clubbie Awards. The FSU Clubbie Awards ceremony is an exclusive event for Seminole Club and Chapter leaders, to honor our volunteers’ dedication and support of FSU, recognize our top Seminole Clubs and Chapters, and announce the winners of the Club of the Year awards. More details to come soon. 


Hotel blocks are reserved at $149.00/night.
