Redefining Brotherhood – Gentry McCreary
Tuesday, April 13 at 8:00pm Eastern
What is brotherhood? Ask any ten members of your chapter this question, and you’re likely to get ten different answers. Brotherhood means different things to different people; a group of men who have your back, a shared social experience, a sense of family, a group of people who push you to be a better person. In this session, we’ll explore nearly ten years of research into the nature of fraternal brotherhood and help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of the brotherhood in your chapter. We’ll also discuss proven strategies to improve the brotherhood in your chapter.
An Hour of Power – Dr. Lori Hart

Strategic Planning is an important practice of successful organizations and Chapters. It helps leaders and members align their values, purpose, initiatives, and plans for what they want to achieve. This guide is to help guide through the process of creating a Strategic Plan that can then be implemented by a Chapter.
This guide is broken into 5 key sections:
- Values/Purpose of the Chapter
- Environmental Scan
- Identifying Key Focus Areas
The end product will be a complete Strategic Plan for the Chapter with specific goals and an action plan charted out.
This process should be done by at least the Executive Council of the Chapter but can also include general members. Other key resources to consider involving are your Chapter Advisor(s), National Staff Contact, Fraternity/Sorority Life Advisor, and Alumni.
