District Director

Delta Sigma Pi District Directors supervise collegiate chapters within their districts. District Directors report to Regional Vice Presidents, Provincial Vice Presidents, the Grand President, and the Executive Director and may seek out those officers for guidance as well.

What does a Delta Sigma Pi District Director do?

As a District Director, your responsibilities include:

  • Visiting alumni and collegiate chapters in your assigned area, so that you can offer recommendations to improve the chapter and its operations.
  • Submitting ideas for improvement to the national Fraternity. Such recommendations, provided to the Regional Vice Presidents or submitted via a recommendation form to the Executive Director, give the Fraternity’s Board of Directors a much better understanding about issues of concern or areas of strength in particular districts.
  • Working with Chapter Advisors and college officials to develop a good relationship between the Fraternity and the college/university.
  • Serving as a role model for Fraternity initiatives. The example District Directors provide can be a significant influence on the leadership development of chapter officers and on other chapter members.
  • Promote Fraternity-wide programs such as the Chapter Management Program, LEAD, Grand Chapter Congress, and the awards programs.
  • Communicating on a regular and timely basis with other Fraternity leaders and the Central Office about the condition of chapters visited.
  • Recommending disciplinary action where needed. District Directors have no disciplinary powers but may recommend to the Regional Vice Presidents that disciplinary action be taken against a chapter or member.
  • Recommending assistance for chapters that need to improve their operations. District Directors recommend assistance actions to the Regional Vice President when a chapter is in need of greater assistance.
  • Enforcing the rules, regulations, policies, and Bylaws of the Fraternity. District Directors must be knowledgeable about the Fraternity’s requirements and must enforce those requirements at all times.
  • Seeking out future volunteers who are qualified to become Fraternity leaders such as District Directors, national or provincial committee members, or Board of Directors members.
  • Keeping your knowledge about the Fraternity and its policies current.
