Vice President of Membership Development
Duties and Responsibilities
As a member of the National Council, the Vice President of Membership Development instructs Collegiate Chapters on how to make efficient use of The Ritual and propose changes to the National Guidelines on Initiation. In doing so, the VPMD ensures that Collegiate Chapter Initiation Programs are designed to produce committed, responsible, and active members. The current Vice President of Membership Development is Natalie Swierzbin, Gamma Epsilon Chapter Alumnus, who was elected to the office at the 2010 National Convention in Harrisburg, PA.
Until 2007, the VPMD served as the chairperson of the Membership Development Committee whose duty was to see that the Initiation Program instills the ideals of Phi Sigma Pi and develops pride and commitment through learning, participation, and responsibility. The National Membership Development Committee was merged into the National Development Committee in August 2007. The VPMD is still charged with ensuring the responsibilities as part of the new National Development Committee.
