IOWA CITY, Iowa – The Delta Chi Fraternity is pleased to announce two additions to its International Headquarters (IHQ) staff, as Max Harper, Ferrum College ’17, has been tabbed the Member Safety Coordinator, and Paul Bierman has been named the Events and Strategic Projects Coordinator.
Harper is a native of Virginia, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and Communications at Ferrum College. Prior to his hiring, Harper had been a Leadership Consultant for the last year and a half, working with chapters and colonies across the country. His work included the organizations expansion efforts and visiting chapters for assistance in operations, risk management, and recruitment practices.
“I am extremely excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve fraternity in this new role,” Harper said. “Delta Chi is making huge strides in the recent years in all aspects of the organization and I am very excited to continue those efforts in member safety so we do not miss a beat and continue to progress in making our fraternal experience safer for our brothers and guests while continuing to be an industry leader.”
Bierman has been added to the fulltime staff after serving as the Coordinator of Events in a temporary role since January. Bierman was crucial in the planning and execution of the Fraternity’s recent 61st International Convention, helping Delta Chi to its largest Convention on record. Originally from Iowa, Bierman grew up in Alaska before attending Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, earning a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Anthropology.
Prior to joining the IHQ staff, Bierman spent two years living and working in Thailand. There he served in an English Teaching Assistantship in the Chiang Rai province through the Fulbright Program. Following his grant, Paul worked for Fulbright Thailand as a Temporary Program Coordinator, responsible for the overhaul of the orientation process for new grantees.
