Support Fraternity/Sorority Housing: Tell the Senate to support the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act!
Fraternities and sororities are the nation’s second largest provider of college student housing. We provide housing – and a one-of-a-kind experience – for more than 370,000 of the most active students on campuses. Yet, donations toward building and maintaining our houses are restricted from receiving full tax deductions.
The Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act (CHIA) would provide our houses with equal access to facility upgrades under the law. By simplifying the tax code, all not-for-profit housing (including fraternities and sororities) will be able to gain incentives to increase funding for life-safety and capacity upgrades like fire sprinklers and alarm systems. If integrated into tax reform, CHIA – which has always enjoyed bipartisan support – will also make a meaningful difference in the student debt crisis by expanding the offering of affordable collegiate housing options.
We are now taking our efforts to the Senate and need your help. Click here to tell your Senators to include CHIA in the upcoming tax reform package. The more voices Congress hears, the more likely students across the country will gain the benefits of safe and affordable student housing. Thank you for your support.
The Fraternal Government Relations Coalition (FGRC) is looking for outstanding campus and chapter leaders to travel to Washington, D.C. to advocate for legislation that is important to the success of fraternity and sorority organizations across the country. This opportunity provides students with the unique opportunity to experience the nation’s capital in a new way through direct interaction in the legislative process.
The FGRC visits will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 23-25, 2018. You must be available to travel to DC during those dates in order to apply. All applications are due by 5 pm Eastern Time on Friday, December 8, 2017. You will be notified in mid-January regarding acceptance.
If you have questions, please email FGRC@apks.com.
The Director of Education and Leadership Programs will further develop curriculum and assess the Fraternity’s educational programs for regional and international programs that aligns with the Fraternity’s Strategic Initiatives.
The Delta Chi Educational Foundation is happy to announce the hiring of Peter S. Lane (Georgia Southern,‘07) as the Director of Development.
Peter returns to Delta Chi after nearly a decade as an Executive Recruiter serving the marketing and technology industry in Atlanta, GA. He previously worked for Delta Chi as a Leadership Consultant, Director of Expansion, and Convention Coordinator from 2007-2008. He is a Founding Father of the Georgia Southern Chapter, and served as the “A”, “B”, Recruitment, Brotherhood, and Fundraising Chairman, among others; a proud attendee of the inaugural “A”’s Academy. He earned his Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America in 2001, and served six years in various leadership positions at Boy Scout Camp Rainey Mountain, including two years as Program Director; also working professionally with the B.S.A. as a District Executive in Gwinnett and Walton counties (Georgia).
Peter is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), an applicant to become a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), and he is pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management and Leadership from the University of Georgia.
He served four years on the Board of Directors for the Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association, two years as Membership Director, and three years as the Tournament Director for the AIMA Scholarship Classic, which he co-created. He led corporate development efforts through his executive network, which generated over $70,000, and helped lead to the creation of the AIMA Educational Foundation, which grants scholarships for college students pursuing a career in digital marketing.
As a Delta Chi volunteer, Peter led the Development effort to build the Georgia Southern Chapter house, and simultaneously served six years as ABT President, leading to the Chapter’s first President’s Cup. He has served as Vice Regent for Region VIII since 2013, and has attended over a dozen RLCs in his region, along with his fifth Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. He also serves as Secretary on the Board of Directors for Barrister Capital Corporation (Delta Chi’s national house corporation). He has been recognized by Delta Chi with a Meritorious Service Award, and is a recipient of the prestigious Michael L. Carroll Region VIII Alumni Service Award. Recently, he led the Development effort to create a Chapter Scholarship Account at Georgia Southern, through the DCEF, and secured a lead gift worth $10,000.
Peter lives near Atlanta, in Roswell, GA with his wife, Krisi, 8-month-old son, Lachlan, and their dog, Mollee. He is a season ticket holder to Georgia Southern football, and loves tailgating with his friends and fellow Delta Chi alumni.
Peter describes his excitement of becoming the DCEF’s Director of Development as “coming home” and is thrilled for the opportunity to lead Delta Chi in this manner. Peter will begin in this role, working-remote, on November 6, 2017.
Starting this Fall, every new member of Delta Chi will be required to successfully complete GreekLifeEdu.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Delta Chi Fraternity is pleased to announce its chapter & colony Core Competency Award recipients for the 2016-2017 academic year.
It is the Fraternity’s goal to recognize and promote the achievements of our chapters, colonies, alumni, and advisors on a chapter, colony, regional, and international level. The awards and recognition program allows chapters and colonies the opportunity to showcase their outstanding or improved performance over the past academic year in each of the Fraternity’s core competencies. To be eligible for awards, chapters or colonies must be current on all bills to the Fraternity as of June 1 and (to be considered for composite awards) must not be on any level of risk management sanction during the year of awards consideration.
Once all applications are received, the Fraternity staff objectively evaluates each and every application before recognizing the efforts of our chapters and colonies based upon Delta Chi’s eight core competencies for success: Advising and Governance, Alumni Relations, Financial Management, Housing, Involvement, Manpower, Membership Education, and Scholarship.
There are two categories of awards given for each core competency.
