When will this policy take effect?

For chapters inside the United States, each member fraternity will be required to implement this policy in their organization no later than September 1, 2019. Member organizations will be given a one-year extension if they need more time to have the policy ratified by the appropriate governing body, which may not meet before September 1, 2019 deadline.

Once finalized, inter/national member fraternities should send their policy language to standards@nicfraternity.org.
