In Spring 2011, Chris decided to rush Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity. He was inducted into the brotherhood in April 2011. During his initiate semester, Chris was elected the initiate class president, where he was in charge of coordinating several events required by the constitution of the national fraternity. During his first active semester as a brother in Fall 2011, Chris was elected the Initiate Advisor for Beta Phi chapter where he was able to restructure the initiate program to better suit the individuality of the chapter. In Spring 2013, Chris was elected to the office of Parliamentarian where he currently serves.
Collegiate Years at Beta Phi Chapter
Beginning in Fall 2011, Chris served as the Initiate Advisor for Beta Phi Chapter where he was able to restructure the initiate program into a more stable and trustworthy period. The program became more adhering to the individuality of Beta Phi chapter by requiring initiates to integrate themselves into the brotherhood in such a way that they were able to understand how business meetings were run and some of the events that were planned by the active brothers themselves. The initiate checklist that was integrated into the program included a list of requirements that initiates were required to complete prior to the final voting process by the brothers. These requirements were created in accordance with the national constitution of the fraternity and with mindset of producing fully-qualified new brothers. The initiate program became a great success within the chapter and allowed the active brothers to become relatable and recognizable to the initiates.
During the Spring 2013 semester, Chris was elected Parliamentarian of Beta Phi chapter, which he continues to serve as today. Having experienced such events as Grand Chapter meetings and national convention, Chris was able to bring back knowledge of Robert's Rules of Order back to the Beta Phi business meetings and introduce new concepts to the chapter to help the meetings run more efficiently.
