What's a LDC?
LDC stands for leadership development consultant, and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for recent Kappa Delta grads. Are you itching to kickstart your career, grow as a leader, develop new skills and travel the country? Since the first consultant hit the road in 1962, Kappa Delta’s traveling consultants have strengthened chapters and helped members build their confidence, while developing their own professional skills in the process. Not to mention all of the people you meet along the way, expanding your professional network.
An LDC focuses on developing collegiate leaders and members, building sisterhood and creating a sense of belonging and inclusion for 20-30 chapters.
How does it work?
Leadership development consultants are full-time salaried employees of Kappa Delta who serve as ambassadors for the organization by visiting chapters across the country, supporting sisterhood and inclusion efforts, mentoring collegians and so much more! You may be traveling 50% of the time or in residence at a university. Depending on the chapter assignment, LDCs assist with leadership development of members, belonging and inclusion efforts, chapter recruitment and new chapter establishment. You’ll also gain valuable knowledge and skills in developing others, public speaking, facilitating meetings, team collaboration, budgeting and reporting. An intensive training session is held in July at KDHQ in Memphis, TN with travel beginning in early August and ending in May. When not traveling, LDCs can based in Memphis or remotely and will support chapters virtually. The one-year term lasts from July through June.
First of all, we want to take a moment to say that we’re so excited you’re interested! The skills you’ll gain as an LDC will help prepare you for the next step in your career! Plus, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime.
