The North-American Interfraternity Conference (formerly known as the National Interfraternity Conference) has a long and storied history as a body that has assisted fraternal organizations to work together. On November 27, 1909, 26 fraternities met to discuss critical issues facing fraternities at that time. A formal organization was completed in 1910. In 1931 the organization's name was changed from Interfraternity Conference to National Interfraternity Conference. In 1999, the leadership again changed the name to North-American Interfraternity Conference to celebrate the membership of brothers in Canada.
Today, the NIC has 64 member organizations with 5500 chapters located on 800 campuses in the United States and Canada with approximately 350,000 undergraduate members. The NIC is led by a Board of Directors comprised of 15 volunteers from member fraternities. The headquarters and professional staff are located in Indianapolis, IN.
The letters FIPG have become well-known throughout the Greek community. It is clear that our one-page risk management policy has become the standard for nearly every greek organization. In fact, there are currently 47 Greek-letter men's and women's fraternities that are FIPG members and who have based their risk management policies on the FIPG policy. But FIPG has much more to offer than a risk management policy. Our goal is to be the one-stop resource for risk management education, beginning first with our member organizations, but eventually extending to undergraduates and college and university professionals.
