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

President and CEO Judson Horras has 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 are being invited to provide information in different areas including insurance, public health, higher education enrollment trending, etc. The expert presentations will be recorded and shared with NIC members along with the Think Tank's resources and recommendations.
