• Examples of leadership, including positions and length if applicable, within Alpha Phi Omega including during pledging

• Helps get others involved (both within and outside of Alpha Phi Omega) so they can learn to become leaders;
• Service on committees or as a voting delegate at the Sectional, Regional, or National level;
