If you can’t participate, then your chapter will not be represented. The curriculum is developed with the role and training needs of the “A” at the forefront, so sending other officers in your place (such as the “B”) is not allowed. If you are unable to participate, it is expected that you communicate that to your “BB” and your ABT President.

Yes! Every chapter president is expected to attend the “A”s’ Academy regardless of when elections occur. If at all possible, we strongly encourage chapters to adjust the timing of elections for each new “A” to fully take advantage of this opportunity.
