Behind the IFC: The Story of the Standard Operating Procedures presented by Kyle Martin

One year ago the NIC member organizations passed a standard that requires each organization to have and enforce a policy that all of their chapters are part of an IFC that is both in alignment with NIC standards (as they are outlined in the IFC SOP Manual) and pays NIC dues. It was proposed and passed unanimously by the membership. But what does that even mean? And how did we (NIC member organizations get here)? Join the NIC staff share the behind the scenes story and intention of the SOP manual for IFC's across North America.

As a result of this program, participants will be able to articulate the definition of and determine news ways to enact interfraternalism on campus.

To understand how to build a more relevant IFC, we will explore the 5 R’s of IFC Relevance. The 5 R’s show that becoming a more relevant IFC is about connecting with other and doing the right thing.
