2.0 – A distinction used to denote an advanced version of an original concept, product or service. NIC 2.0 The Future of Fraternities Fraternities are at a turning point—a critical moment. To thrive today and beyond, fraternal culture must evolve. Through extraordinary interfraternal collaboration, in Fall 2015, men’s fraternities came together to chart a bold course for the future. Their work resulted in sweeping changes to the North-American Interfraternity Conference aimed at creating vibrant, healthy fraternity communities—one community at a time. Convened around this challenge, the NIC is hitting reboot. We are reshaping our century-old organization to enact positive changes to ensure the fraternity movement thrives in the future. Yes, the new NIC will still be a trade association for the fraternal industry, but you will see its culture shift in conjunction with its reframed priorities.
