Event Details

Join the North American Interfraternity Conference and Foundation for Fraternal Excellence for dinner, drinks and live music with colleagues and peers – an evening of connection and fraternal fellowship with exciting announcements related to what’s next in our research work.

In service to the industry, over the last three years, the North American Interfraternity Conference and Foundation for Fraternal Excellence have partnered with experts to complete 21 research projects thanks to the generosity of donors who invested a total of nearly $500,000. This previous research has already helped fraternal organizations:

  • in their fundraising efforts – from capital campaigns to giving days – and donor cultivation,
  • throughout strategic planning conversations focused on driving member growth and
  • when defending the fraternal experience during litigation.

Also during the evening’s programming will be the presentation of the NIC Silver Medal to Dr. Dawn Wiese (Delta Delta Delta). Wiese is passionate about advancing student development and never turns down a request to engage in efforts to create, educate, communicate, promote or coordinate any research effort that strengthens the overall student experience, with full recognition that through fraternities and sororities the overall college experience is significantly stronger.

We hope you’ll join us to celebrate!
