Governing Council

Governing Council The collective needs of NIC’s 66 member fraternities are addressed by the Governing Council, which works in concert with a dynamic staff based in Indianapolis. Member fraternities become eligible to have a Governing Council representative by meeting the Council Financial Threshold for annual investment in the operations of the Conference. This can be achieved through member dues, scholarships to educational programs, and other investments in NIC initiatives. Additionally, the Meeting of Members elects two at-large representatives to the Governing Council and the Fraternity Growth Accelerator organizations select a member as their representative.
