2022 Dual Meeting

The Foundation for Fraternal Excellence Seminar and North American Interfraternity Conference Annual Meeting of Members are hosted together to build all aspects of fraternal industry success and encourage collaboration on all sides of our organizations.

AUGUST 29-31, 2022

We know successful fraternities help sustain successful fraternal foundations and the educational initiatives of our organizations. We are excited to once again provide a dual program experience for the NIC Annual Meeting of Members and FFE Seminar. The Dual Meeting not only benefits executives but also a broad range of staff members and high-level volunteers. We encourage your organization to bring as many team members as possible! Dual Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in all opportunties and meetings across both NIC and FFE networks
  • Engage in high-quality educational workshops and deep-dive discussions
  • Learn about the state of the interfraternal industry from featured NIC and FFE speakers and experts
  • Network with member organization leaders, professionals from foundation and membership staffs, and NIC and FFE Alliance Partners
  • Be part of the largest fraternal fundraising industry event, FFE Seminar

We'll see you in Indianapolis!

The 2022 Dual Meeting will be an even greater opportunity for us all to grow together as we have expanded our curriculum in membership programming and other areas to engage more deeply across fraternity and foundation teams. We are excited to offer this incredible experience to your organization.

FFE Keynote


Mari Ann Callais, Ph.D., Delta Delta Delta Fraternity & The For College For Life Speakers Team

We all want to feel like we are cared about and that we belong. In your business, listening to stories, passions, what's important to your donors happens long before you make the ask. Maybe now more than ever, understanding what others are feeling and where they would like to invest their treasure might look different. The pandemic created an even greater need for this sense of belonging and community, but the struggle is real. It might be that we all need to feel a little more connected, a sense of belonging, and that who I am is even more important than what I do. This keynote will discuss the importance of belonging, bring some joy to our time and space together, and hopefully leave you with a sense of you are important to helping others feel like they belong. It's who you are, not just what you do.

FFE & NIC Keynote

They will deliver the findings of their research and discuss the trends from both the administrative and donor perspectives, as well as analyze the opportunities and challenges that Greek foundations face in regard to operations and fundraising. This session provides baseline data on the state of the industry in regards to assets, dollars raised and various expenses. It also provides comparisons to higher education and public and private foundations.
