Conference Leadership Team Update

We welcome Cory Bosco as our 2024 Conference Chair and Aimee Wardle and Nicole Zisa as our 2024 Assistant Conference Chairs. Executive Director Michael Davis states, “NGLA is ecstatic to see Cory, Aimee, and Nicole lead our next conference. Each of them brings unique experiences from critical areas of our conference and the organization as a whole. I am certain that this new model for NGLA’s Conference Leadership Team, with these three at the helm, will push the conference forward towards new opportunities.”

Cory Bosco
Cory serves as the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Bradley University. Cory has been volunteering with NGLA since 2017 and has served in positions supporting educational programming and technology. From 2011-2013, he worked for the executive office of his fraternity, Sigma Pi. Cory earned his Bachelor’s of History and Bachelor’s of Political Science at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and his Master’s of Education from Rutgers University.
Aimee Wardle

Farewell to the Outgoing Conference Chair
The Northeast Greek Leadership Association offers great appreciation for outgoing conference chair Ryan S. Cole. Ryan has dedicated eight years of volunteer service to NGLA through various roles on the conference committee.

Michael says, “Since the beginning of his volunteer experience with NGLA’s conference team, Ryan has gone above and beyond to ensure that the conference continues to exceed expectations of the vast network of communities who attend. As educational programming chair, he reimagined what type of programming should take place during our conference and helped develop new and meaningful programs such as the Lectorials on R.A.C.E. As conference chair, Ryan focused his time to ensure that the volunteers who came after him had a successful and enjoyable experience in their respective roles. We are grateful for the time, energy, and talent that he’s dedicated to NGLA.”

Ryan shares, “My involvement in NGLA has been one of the most impactful experiences of my career and personal life. When I moved from Indiana to the northeast to begin my graduate studies in 2015, I was almost immediately ‘voluntold’ by my supervisor at the time – turned good friend – Dr. Thea Zunick, to volunteer with NGLA. She said that it would be a great way for me to get to know the culture that is fraternity and sorority life in the Northeast and that I would get to meet some of the most amazing professionals this field could offer. Not surprisingly, Thea was right. I have spent almost the last decade of my life dedicated to NGLA. Not just because it was good for my career, but because the people I have met have truly challenged me and made me a better person overall. NGLA has something special that I cannot quite put my finger on, but I couldn’t be happier to have been part of this Association. Even though I no longer work in higher education, I remain committed to NGLA and want to maintain my involvement to the best of my abilities. I hope that the work I have done with NGLA will have a lasting impression on the Association and the conference. I cannot wait to see what future conferences have in store for their attendees, and I know the conference is in great hands!"

NGLA is grateful for Ryan’s service to advance the Association.
