So often, a Leadership Consultant is asked why she does the work that she does. To some, it's hard to believe this job, one that allows you to travel around North America and touch the lives of our members, is real. Undoubtedly, the Leadership Consultant position is one of the most challenging and rewarding roles in the Fraternity. It is thousands of frequent flyer miles, long hours and rarely being in the same place for more than a week. But, it is also a daily opportunity to be both inspiring and inspired. As a frontline representative of Alpha Gamma Delta, Leadership Consultants are reminded regularly of the power of Alpha Gam and the importance of believing in the Purpose of the Fraternity.

Leadership Consultants are focused every single day on how to help make your experience as a member more meaningful. This group of women represents one of the most dynamic populations in our entire organization. They are bright, confident and have the courage to pack their belongings into their suitcase and brave the unknown. They show up at a chapter and inspire the women to believe that their experience can impact their campus, their community, the world. They are women willing to offer a listening ear to someone they met less than 24 hours ago, they are members who stay into the late hours of the night to help perfect every detail of tomorrow's recruitment event and they are the women bold enough to ask the tough questions. They'll laugh with you, celebrate with you and take a few moments to demonstrate that the ideals of Alpha Gam transcend both space and time. Simply put, they are jet-setters with Purpose.
The time spent traveling for the organization has the opportunity to be one of the best personal and professional development experiences offered. Consultants get the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and Canada, maybe stopping to walk the Freedom Trail in Boston, be awe-inspired by Niagara Falls, see a sunset at the beach, explore Yellowstone National Park and enjoy the endless treasures and traditions at every college they visit. By the end of their travel, they will have mastered relationship-building, critical thinking and communication. They will know themselves more than ever before and have an entirely new appreciation for patience, humor and cell phones.
