Fraternity

INDIANAPOLIS (April 28, 2016) — The spring Fraternity Advisor Conference (FAC) was held in Indianapolis, Indiana from April 8 – 10. Volunteers received an opportunity to share ideas, explore issues and current challenges, and discuss strategies to better relate to college students.

The conference is for volunteers who want to go further than the basics of advising and want to gain education on the “bigger picture” of working with successful chapters, maintaining a healthy Chapter Advisory Board, and be the best resource to the fraternity and the chapter.
