Delta Chi believes that a lifelong endeavor is about continual growth, both in brotherhood and throughout the course of our members’ entire lives. We believe in the benefits of assisting our brothers through developing their abilities to lead, supporting their continuing education, and giving them a network of like-minded, upstanding men to which they belong.
We rely on our alumni to continue supporting the success of our chapters. Service directly to Delta Chi requires giving of yourself, whether your time, your talent, or your other resources. Without such contributions from our alumni, there will be no assurance of a future for our Fraternity. The fulfillment of one’s lifelong endeavor will enable future generations of young men to experience personal growth through brotherhood.

Serve a Chapter or Colony as an Advisor
The role of “BB” is one of mentoring, advising, fellowship and liaison between student members and alumni. This position is required by Delta Chi Law to be a two-year term to be served by a Delta Chi alumnus and is elected on non-Convention years.
The Alumni Board of Trustees (ABT) is an advisory and supervisory group of five or more dedicated individuals who, as a team, wish to enhance the experience of Delta Chi. A primary responsibility of the ABT is to oversee the chapter’s financial operations. In addition, the ABT can give advice in areas such as public relations, recruitment, leadership training, scholarship and new member education.
Every chapter that has or plans to have housing should have a house corporation to manage its housing affairs. The house corporation must have an owner’s interest in any real property acquired for the chapter and should be the lessee on any rental property. In addition to the involvement of parents, faculty members, local businessmen, and of course alumni, the composition of a house corporation should have a blend of experience and age.
The role of the faculty advisor of a Delta Chi chapter or colony is one of programming coordination, liaison to the university, and member of a chapter/colony academic advising committee. This position is suggested to be a one-semester/quarter term and is best elected during the end of the prior semester/quarter. Some institutions require fraternities to have a faculty advisor to be a recognized student organization.
