COVID-19 Guidance and Resources

The North American Interfraternity Conference is committed to supporting member fraternities and Interfraternity Councils. This page will be updated regularly so that we may provide timely, practical and fraternal-specific tools and tips.

Fraternal Think Tank

These recommendations are based on discussions with industry experts and are intended to guide fraternities as they prepare for the 2020-21 academic year. The Fraternal Think Tank encourages reviewing the accompanying resources including watching expert discussions for more in-depth advice.

President and CEO Judson Horras formed a Fraternal Think Tank charged with discussing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the fraternity industry. The Think Tank includes a cross section of organization and industry chief executive officers. Experts were invited to provide information in different areas including insurance, public health, higher education enrollment trending, etc. The expert presentations were recorded and shared with NIC members along with the Think Tank's resources and recommendations.
