Two Meetings, One Trip

NIC Annual Meeting of Members

To provide maximum value for member fraternities, the NIC is moving its Annual Meeting of Members to August to be held in conjunction with the NIC Foundation’s THE Foundations Seminar. Fraternity and Foundation staff and volunteers, as well as NIC and NICF Alliance Partners, will now be able to attend both conferences in one trip to Indianapolis Aug 28-30, 2017, saving organizational resources while delivering greater benefit for each attendee. Both conferences will take place at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis.

As part of the NIC Annual Meeting of Members, on Aug. 27, we will also host the first-ever Fraternity Growth Accelerator Summit, targeted to emerging and culturally-based fraternities.

A joint registration process will launch May 1.

Attendees will be able to register for one or both events: the NIC Annual Meeting of Members and the NICF THE Foundations Seminar.

  • NIC Meeting-only rate: $199, includes NIC programs, meals and events on Aug. 28 and the morning of Aug. 29
  • Dual-program experience: $399, includes all programs, events and meals Aug. 28-30 for the NIC Annual Meeting of Members and the NICF THE Foundations Seminar
  • Bundled registration package: $3,000, includes 10 registrations for staff members and/or volunteers for the dual-program experience—both the NIC Annual Meeting of Members and the NICF THE Foundations Seminar; includes all programs, events and meals, with the exception of 5 tickets to the NICF Awards Dinner and Reception.

Who Should Attend the NIC Meeting of Members

This year, NIC educational programs will engage attendees around key areas of NIC 2.0 priorities and progress, such as campus support (ground game), government relations, crisis management and communications. Staff and volunteers in these roles would benefit most:

  • Executive Director/CEO and/or equivalent volunteer
  • Director-level staff in chapter services, alumni development, crisis management and communications
  • Foundation executives, staff and key volunteers should attend THE Foundations Seminar

The new format not only benefits Fraternity and Foundation executives, but also staff members and high-level volunteers. Attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Engage in both NIC and NICF meetings and high-quality educational programs
  • Learn about the state of the fraternity and foundation industries from featured NIC- and NICF-sponsored speakers
  • Take part in the first-ever Fraternity Growth Accelerator summit, targeted to emerging and culturally-based fraternities
  • Network with Fraternity and Foundation colleagues, as well as NIC and NICF Alliance Partners
