What You’ll Learn

David Stollman, President of the growth-focused consulting firm LaunchPoint Solutions, will be our facilitator for the weekend. He’ll share:

  • The chance to experience what collegians learned when they attended RBC.
  • Information about your role in assisting with action plan implementation.
  • How you can help transition the action plan to incoming officers.
  • How you can set your own advisor action plan goals!


David has challenged students at over 500 campuses and numerous fraternal conventions. He’s held many volunteer roles in his fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and served on the Chapter Advisory Board for Alpha Sigma Tau’s Delta Phi Chapter at New York University for 10 years.

After graduating from the University of Maryland, he started teaching fraternities how to recruit. Campuses kept asking him to come back, so David created Recruitment Boot Camp. In the last 10 years, RBC by LaunchPoint Solutions has helped over 10,000 fraternity and sorority chapters, as well as hundreds of fraternity/sorority communities across North America to recruit better and more members.

He is the co-founder of LaunchPoint Solutions,, and the award-winning speakers agency, CAMPUSPEAK.

David has been recognized for his work advancing the fraternal movement by the Association of Fraternity Advisors with the prestigious Anson Award. Both his own fraternity and alma mater, the University of Maryland, have recognized his impact on the undergraduate fraternal experience. Additionally, David is a Crown Degree recipient of Alpha Sigma Alpha and has also been recognized with the highest honors offered to a non-member by both Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Phi Mu Delta.

For his service as the Assistant Chapter Advisor to the Delta Phi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau, David was awarded both the Helen R. Garman Advisor Award and the McCrory Order of Interfraternity Excellence.
