Shelton departing NIC staff for new venture

Indianapolis, December 21, 2021— The North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) announces Todd Shelton will depart staff on December 31 to pursue independent communication and public relations consulting.

With two decades of strategic communication experience, Shelton joined the NIC in 2018 and has served as Chief Communication Officer since January 2019.

“We greatly appreciate Todd’s efforts on behalf of the NIC and the greater fraternal community,” said Judson Horras, NIC President & CEO. “We look forward to his continued success.”

During his time at the NIC, Shelton further developed industry-wide response protocols and resources and directed the communication strategy for the NIC and Foundation for Fraternal Excellence (FFE). He led the development and successful execution of the myFraternity proactive campaign. He provided leadership for rebrand efforts for the NIC and FFE and co-led the Stand Up To Harvard public relations effort in defense of the single-sex fraternity/sorority experience.

As Shelton exits, Hillary Brewer will continue her role as Director of Communication. Brewer joined the NIC staff this year from Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity where she began her career in 2012 as an educational leadership consultant followed by a role in new chapter development for the women’s organization. Since 2015, she served the fraternity in communication roles including Creative Director for their award-winning efforts since 2019. She currently serves a volunteer role as Vice President of Programming on the board of directors for the Fraternity Communications Association.

Shelton will continue to provide communication project assistance to the NIC on a contract basis. Member fraternities and Interfraternity Councils should continue to email for public relations assistance. Shelton can be reached at
