All incoming officers should complete the Incoming Officer Guide to brainstorm and prepare for the 1:1 meeting with the outgoing officer.
Step 4: Officer On-Boarding Series – Part 2 (Online)

Step 5: The outgoing officer and incoming officer have a one-on-one meeting(s)
This meeting should take place between the outgoing and incoming officer; they should use the 1:1 Officer Transition Meeting Guide as a reference.
Note: If the chapter/colony would prefer for the transition meetings you take place at one time, the “A” should coordinate a meeting time where both outgoing and incoming officers are present.
Step 6: Incoming Officer Retreat
The “A” should plan a retreat for the incoming officer retreat. This should take place prior to the start of the next quarter/semester. The purpose the retreat should be to set both short and long-term goals for the chapter. The “BB” and Alumni Board of Trustees (ABT) should be involved in the retreat.
Looking for retreat activities? Consider using the Brotherhood Building Resources from the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).

Values-Based Coaching Model
In 2019, Delta Chi implemented our Values-Based Coaching (VBC) model. This year, our team has enhanced this coaching model to ensure all 115 Delta Chi organizations have year-long coaching with Delta Chi IHQ staff. We have redeveloped this model to adhere to virtual operations and truly support our membership to cultivate a strong fraternal experience while following CDC and campus guidelines.
Here’s how your chapter/colony will be supported this academic year:
- Chapters and colonies will be assessed and supported with their operational environment in mind. Delta Chi has created new assessment criteria to account for social distancing and virtual operations.
- Refined chapter/colony coaching process involving increased information sharing with stakeholders (ie. campus partners, advisors, and Delta Chi alumni)
- Coaches are assisting chapter/colony leadership in setting up virtual organization/executive board meetings
- Coaches are assisting chapters and colonies with creating organizational management and implementation plans to cultivate a strong Delta Chi experience regardless of campus environment.
Request a Presentation
The staff of the International Headquarters is committed to providing ongoing support to our members and organizations. Our team is able to provide custom programming to address specific needs in your organization. Whether you’re interested in a presentation to your Associate Members, Executive Board, or entire organization, our team will work with you to create the presentation you’re looking for.
Finding Your Coach
Delta Chi chapter/colony coaching has concluded for the 2020-21 academic year. Coaching assignments will be assessed during the summer and new coaches will reach out to their chapters or colonies in July 2021.
Now, more than ever, recruitment will be essential for every chapter and colony this academic year. Practicing 365-recruitment both virtually and in-person will ensure the legacy and future of success of your member experience. Delta Chi Leadership Consultants began coaching each chapter and colony in summer 2020 to prepare for year-round recruitment plans. In addition to coaching, Delta Chi has created recruitment toolkits, webinars, and videos to enhance the recruitment of our membership. We also encourage our active members, alumni, parents, and friends of the Fraternity to refer a member to join the Delta Chi experience! Recruitment is the future of our organization. If you’d like more information or want to talk about recruitment on your campus, contact your chapter coach or contact the Director of Fraternity Growth, Divante Hamilton.

Per Delta Chi’s Risk Management Policies, “No chapter, colony, member, Associate Member or alumnus shall conduct, participate in nor condone hazing activities. Permission or approval by a person being hazed is not a defense.”
Hazing is the antithesis of everything that we believe in as an organization and Delta Chi is committed to staying true to its values. Below you can find a list of resources to help combat hazing, educate yourself and others, and report hazing when you see it taking place.
