Fraternity Growth Accelerator
First established among the groundbreaking reforms of NIC 2.0, the Fraternity Growth Accelerator (FGA) will provide emerging fraternities with the platform to collaborate on necessary resources and services. This effort will support their continued growth and development within the North-American Interfraternity Conference and the fraternal movement.
At its Annual Meeting in April 2016, the Conference demonstrated its strong commitment to emerging and multicultural organizations by pledging to help FGA groups fund a staff position. Past AFA President Veronica Hunter Moore was hired as the Director of Emerging and Culturally-Based Fraternal Initiatives, and she focuses on the development of the FGA and resources for its groups. The FGA groups also selected Jarrod Cruz-Stipsits, the Executive Director of Lambda Theta Phi Fraternity, Inc., to serve as their representative on the NIC’s Governing Council.
The NIC will host an inaugural FGA Symposium to take place during the NIC Annual Meeting of Members in August 2017.
The FGA groups are currently finalizing their needs assessment, investment level and resource planning. We are excited to launch this collaborative endeavor, reinforcing that the NIC is the trade association for all fraternities.
