Recruitment Chairmen

The Recruitment Chairmen track will walk participants through the Fraternity’s growth system. Recruitment Chairmen will learn how to: Create consensus around the ideal potential new member; Prepare members with the soft skills needed in recruitment; Build a dynamic recruitment infrastructure; and Use tools made available by the Fraternity.


New Member Educators

New Member Educators will receive essential training to facilitate the new member on-boarding process. And they will explore how that fits into the four-year and beyond membership experience. Additionally, participants will do a deep dive into the Foundation of Courage and Built to Lead programs.

COVID-19 Precautions

 Vaccines & COVID Tests

Phi Gamma Delta is taking all reasonable steps necessary to host a safe, in-person Summit. With this in mind, we are encouraging all attendees to be vaccinated, and we strongly encourage all attendees to be tested prior to attendance (regardless of vaccination status).


Based on current COVID-19 conditions, masks will be optional at The Summit. If an attendee or facilitator prefers to wear a mask, we ask all attendees to be respectful of that decision. The requirement to wear a mask may change based on COVID-19 conditions at the time of the event.

 If You Aren't Feeling Well Prior to (or During) The Summit

Any attendee who feels sick or tests positive for COVID-19 before their departure should plan to stay home and notify the Director of Fraternity Growth.

Attendees who experience COVID-19 symptoms or test positive onsite must immediately isolate themselves from other attendees. Please report these symptoms to a Fraternity staff member so that precautionary protocols may be enacted.

 Adjustments to Expectations & Procedures Are Subject to Change

Phi Gamma Delta will monitor all local and CDC guidance regarding COVID-19, and we will adjust our recommendations and requirements accordingly. This means changes may be made to the above policies/requests as we get closer to The Summit.

"In every possible way, every breakout session and small group session was amazing. I think that will really help us reorganize our recruitment strategies."
- Matt Ben (DePaul 2022)

"It allows everyone to become vulnerable for a minute and allows the group to learn things that they might not have known." 
- Brady Branscum (William Woods 2022)

"I liked getting different perspectives from many different brothers about all aspects of my program. I enjoyed getting more ideas to incorporate."
- Grant Clayton (William Woods 2020)

"The culture of the chapter starts with recruiting, by getting the right guys we are able to expand naturally rather than having to constantly be on members who are not committed."
- Jake Ari (Rutgers 2021)
