As President of your Delta Sigma Pi collegiate chapter, you serve as the chief executive officer, overall manager, and motivator for the chapter—keeping a big picture view and overseeing all other officers and members in their Fraternity roles and functions.

You can always ask for help!

Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed, especially if you are new to the office of President. Consult the links to the left for answers and insights, or contact Delta Sigma Pi officers and staff for help.

  • Talk to your Regional Vice President and District Director about Fraternity events and policies. Ask about projects and activities other chapters in the region are planning.
  • Work with your Chapter Advisor when you need a go-between for issues related to faculty or school administrators.
