The Office of High Pi is an office of great dignity, demanding wisdom and prudence, as well as always being impartial and deliberate in judgment. In this advisory capacity, the High Pi must be sure to be familiar with all facets of a situation before acting, and then being candid yet diplomatic in giving advice. Familiarity with the affairs of this chapter is essential in order to properly advise the members of the chapters. It is important that the High Pi presents a good example by his attendance at meetings and other activities, and by conscientiously following the highest standards of conduct and integrity. He will be judged by the impartiality of your dealings with members of the chapter.
Lambda Chi Alpha alumni advisors are all the men and women that interact with the undergraduate brothers to positively impact their undergraduate experience. It is important to know that while there are certain advantages to having Lambda Chi Alpha alumni brothers advising the undergraduates, sometimes it is more advantageous for the brothers to have non-affiliated advisors and also female advisors to provide a different perspective and approach to how Lambda Chi Alpha operates on that specific campus. Over the years, it has been noticed that a wide array of mentorship and advising has been helpful for our undergraduate brothers, and the General Fraternity is in a position now where we have identified the need for significant role models for the undergraduate brothers, and will invite those necessary personalities to become involved with advising the undergraduate brothers so long as they are positively impacting the Lambda Chi Alpha experience on campus. With it being said that men and women can participate, Lambda Chi Alpha recognizes that the alumni advisers are in the position to help with chapter operations, provide mentorship and guidance to individual members, support and advise High Zeta officers, or even work to ensure that the physical plant is adequate condition to foster the undergraduate experience.
Alumni Advisory Board
The High Pi shall appoint and serve as Chairman of an Alumni Advisory Board whose purpose is to advise the local Chapter in sound Chapter management and to provide for continuity of Chapter operations, where such advisory functions are not already provided for within the Chapter’s Alumni Organization. All members of the Alumni Advisory Board shall be Alumni Brothers in good standing.
House Corporation Officer
The primary focus of the House Corporation Officers is to provide a safe and positive living environment, which will promote the appropriate growth and development within the undergraduate Zeta. The House Corporations should be striving to ensure that they are treating the undergraduates in a brotherly fashion, but at the same time appropriately managing the operations of the chapter facility. Dependent on the type of physical plant, the House Corporation Officers working at one chapter may have different responsibilities than the House Corporation Officers at a different chapter. All in all, the House Corporations are charged to maintain a physical plant that provides the appropriate needs for the undergraduate chapter to be successful.
All alumni volunteers must be certified. This process includes a background check, an acknowledgement of our laws and policies, and a review of any new legislation passed during the previous General Assembly. Certification is mandatory for any alumni brother who is working with our chapters as a High Pi or advisor, house corporation member, alumni control board member, and/or chapter alumni association member. A volunteer’s certification must be renewed after two years. If you have any further questions, please contact Director of Alumni Engagement Jayme Little.
The primary purpose of a Master Steward is to support Lambda Chi Alpha through involvement with the TRUE Brother Initiative and Lambda Chi Alpha’s educational curriculum. The focus of this position is the endorsement, stewardship, advancement, and support Lambda Chi Alpha as the co-curricular leader in the Greek movement through the education and development of our undergraduate brothers and alumni volunteers. The role of a Master Steward is responsible for teaching components of Lambda Chi Alpha’s educational curriculum, introducing Outer Circle programming to chapters, and modeling the way of a TRUE Brother all times in front of undergraduates. As a partner and adjunct to the professional staff, this assignment will provide chapter support, continue the development of educational materials, and ensure the General Fraternity has a strong cadre of brothers to support operations at local, regional, and international Lambda Chi Alpha events. Master Stewards commit to three-year terms of service, with potential opportunities to continue on for additional terms if conditions are such that warrant continued service at this level.
