We should standardize a format for Chapter pages--headings and subheadings that should be present for all pages (ie, Founding, Early Years, Famous Alumni, etc.), and a standard introductory paragraph including sheltering institution, founding date, regional affiliation, etc. Chapters can add sections specific to their Chapters (eg Tau Founder's Weekend or Alpha Beta's Volleyball, or Alpha's reactivation and Alumni outreach efforts). Also, let's figure out a floating template with some quick facts about each Chapter. Ideas appreciated. I'll try to start with Beta Kappa, because I know something about it.

I like the idea of a chapter infobox with some quick hitter facts similar to the infoboxes on the member pages. Anyone else agree? We'd also need to come up with a list of facts to include. Pmgingrich 18:07, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Ideas for intro paragraph:
Founding date
City & state
Founding members

Ideas for subheadings:
Early years (include time frame such as 2 years)
Awards won (both from fraternity as well as university)
Notable Alumni (include award winners such as DSK, Council members, Founding Members of other chapters, important people outside of the PSP realm, etc)
Chapter Events (example, Alpha Beta would include volleyball)

The alumni chapters were split up into active and inactive subheadings, so I made the same change for collegiate chapters. I think both collegiate & alumni chapters divided into active/inactive subheadings OR have just one combined list for collegiate & one combined list for alumni. {Duff 15:05, 21 March 2007 (EDT)}

Alumni Chapters

I know that there were a few other Alumni Chapters that failed--at least one in MD and some Alumni in and around South Carolina tried to form CRAC (Carolina Regional Alumni Chapter), but don't have any details. Anyone know when WPAC went inactive? FreshBoy 12:20, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Carolina was an Association, Central Carolina Alumni Association. Chesapeake Area Alumni Chapter has been added. Also there was Great Lakes Region Alumni Chapter, which I need to get dates on. Twin Tiers Alumni Chapter (southern NY tier, northern PA tier), which not sure if it ever was an official Alumni Chapter. (Jonah 22:46, 13 March 2007 (EDT))
I pulled the alumni chapters from the chapter roll off the PSP Nat'l website. No listing for Twin Tiers or Penn State on that list. Also, that list has WPAC as being chartered in Nov. 2006, so if that is correct, they couldn't have gone inactive in 2005. {Duff 15:03, 21 March 2007 (EDT)}
The info at the National Office is wrong (ask me about wrong info in the national database, sometime). WPAC definitely existed before 2005--they (and by "they" I mean Dan... I think that was his name) attended several GCs that I remember... 2001-2004, I think. Raymond Houston was their pres. for a while. Cap. Chapter minutes from 2004 note that WPAC was on probation at that time, and that Jonah was monitoring them. FreshBoy 15:28, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
Dan Rinkes was the former President of WPAC before Raymond Houston. Maybe we should get one of them to work on the WPAC page. I see Raymond did some edits around the wiki already. (Jonah 15:44, 21 March 2007 (EDT))
The inactivity date I had for WPAC was correct. Penn State AC I took from the Scholar's Province. Some of these others I am not so sure about. I don't believe the NC AC ever was officially chartered. (Jonah 15:33, 21 March 2007 (EDT))
alright, alright. The list on the nat'l site actually said 1996 for WPAC. I was only off by a single decade. {Duff 16:39, 21 March 2007 (EDT)}


I see some chapter pages with a region category. Is there a location for these regions so i can start linking the chapters to the appropriate region?--Duff 16:35, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

You can add the region links now, they will just be red and need to have a page created eventually, but there doesn't need to be content there yet. (Jonah 16:38, 14 March 2007 (EDT))
