There are as many reasons to attend PTK Catalyst in Orlando as there are theme park attractions at Universal Studios and Disney combined. Not only is PTK Catalyst the biggest PTK Party of the Year, it is a time of celebration, learning, recognition, and fellowship—all rolled into three unforgettable days! Here are a few of my top reasons you should go:
Over the past several years, we have increased the quality and diversity of our Educational Forums. And, for those of you who have never attended before, Educational Forums are short seminars that cover everything from yoga and using improv to develop your leadership skills to how to complete the FAFSA and tips for successful transfer. There truly is something for everyone.
Our Senior College Transfer Fair is also what I like to consider a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Universities and four-year colleges from across the country travel to Catalyst just to tell you about the opportunities and PTK transfer scholarships available at their schools. You will have an opportunity to connect with dozens of transfer recruiters without ever stepping foot on campus.
Catalyst is also an opportunity to cast your chapter’s vote for the next group of International Officer Candidates. You will have an unprecedented opportunity to connect with candidates in the Marketplace and through two live caucus events. You won’t want to miss it!
This year’s general session speakers are going to be nothing less than inspiring. Former CNN host and author Mel Robbins will talk to us about her Mindset Reset. And author and former felon Chef Jeff Henderson will tell us how he turned his life around after serving in prison for more than a decade.
Who could forget about the Hallmark Awards Gala? The culmination of all your hard work, the Hallmark Awards Gala is truly a night of celebration—recognizing the hard work of our amazing students and advisors and the impact you are having on your campus and in your community.
And, finally—PTK Catalyst is an unforgettable time of fun and fellowship, where you will see old friends and make new ones. From human foosball and the Scholar Bowl to the Farewell Celebration, PTK Catalyst is always the PTK Party of the Year!
