Alliance Partners at the Virtual Dual Meeting

Thank you for your continued support of the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and Foundation for Fraternal Excellence (FFE) and our programs. We are very excited about the valuable experience we are able to offer Alliance Partners through these programs. Our goal is to provide a framework that allows each partner to engage through some – or all! – of the opportunities available and build a blueprint for successful engagement and growth.

First…

Renew your membership! These opportunities are only available to current FFE and NIC Alliance Partners. Email NIC COO Mike McRee at mike.mcree@nicfraternity.org for details.

MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION

 

We pioneered the online version of our flagship program last year, providing multiple opportunities for engagement and exposure. After assimilating your feedback and hearing the ways our Alliance Partners were most successful, we have created a 2021 experience to help you reach your networking and client development goals.

  • Internationally respected speakers leading keynote sessions in fundraising, membership, and research topics
  • A new track for membership professionals (alongside five other tracks) to engage more fraternity-side team members
  • Positioning of Alliance Partners as subject area experts and vetted service providers to support both NIC and FFE audiences

 

Who should register

All Alliance Partners (NIC, FFE or both!) are invited to participate in the Virtual Dual Meeting.
