IRVINE, CALIFORNIA (September 23, 2015) — The fall Fraternity Advisor Conference (FAC) was held in Irvine, California from September 11 – 13, and provided an opportunity for active fraternity advisors to share ideas, explore issues and current challenges, and gain strategies to better relate to college students.

The FAC focuses on the concepts, skills, and values which advisors need to be effective in their roles as chapter and fraternity leaders. 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.
