IFC Presidents Discussion

Q&A about the impact of COVID-19 on the fraternity community with IFC presidents including Sam Keener, Kansas State; Robbie Starr, Worcester Polytechnic Institute; Daniel Wolfe, Michigan State; and Judson Horras, NIC President and CEO

Key Points:

  • continue to meet virtually (council meetings, officer meetings, advisor meetings, etc.)
  • pivot philanthropy efforts to virtual platforms – can still have great success
  • prioritize open communication
  • evaluate future in-person events; how can they be shifted the calendar or adapted to meet guidelines
  • recruitment is lifeline of all organizations; try to recruit more members than normal; get creative in ways to virtually interact with potential new members
  • be over prepared and follow public health guidelines
  • be careful not to over program
