Greek FIREifc

First-year Initiates Reaching Excellence


Purpose:

To prepare new members for membership in the Greek community, in giving them the skills to become future leaders in all aspects of the campus, while creating a community within new members and the entire Greek community.


Implementation:

Implementation will be through voluntary participation by IFC chapters based on a recognition system. During this introduction year, any chapter who participates, at any level, will be recognized both on the IFC website and recruitment book as well as have a letter sent to their national or international headquarters. Participation in the Greek Fire program is not mandatory but is highly encouraged. The programs are designed to supplement your individual chapter’s new member education program and increase the unity between our IFC chapters.


Note: The events listed below are merely suggestions. If you feel that your chapter already participates in a program that would fit in a category below, please e-mail the VP of Membership Development, Brenden Lowe, at bjlkv5@mail.missoui.edu. Approval must be granted before the event in order for it to count towards the Greek Fire program. If you have any questions or need help scheduling events, please contact Brenden Lowe.
Process:

  1. Attend either a Rho Gamma event or an event listed on the following page.

  2. If the event is not one listed on the following page, e-mail the VP of Membership Development, Brenden Lowe, at bjlkv5@mail.missouri.edu.

  3. Have at least 80% of your new members attend the event. Active members are invited to attend as well but never required.

  4. Notify the VP of Membership Development that your members attended the event either by submitting the attached event submission form to the VP of Membership Development mailbox in the Center for Student Involvement (2500 Student Center) or by filling out the Electronic Event Submission Form on the IFC website (greeklife.missouri.edu/ifc).

  5. Please notify the VP of Membership Development within a week of completing the event.

Note: The IFC will take attendance at the Rho Gamma events so you do not have to submit the event submission form for those.
