A Lifetime Opportunity

As an associate member, I was required to memorize the Preamble and I could recite the words verbatim. However, I never really understood the meaning of those words. Candidly, it was not until I became “AA” and began writing these series of articles on the core components of our Preamble that I took the time to reflect and understand their true meaning and how they relate to our brotherhood. My first article was about “Promoting Friendship” and following that theme, this article addresses “Developing Character”. Character. It is what defines us as men. It is the driving force that shapes what we do when we are struggling to find an answer to what must be done. It can easily be influenced by the company you keep and by the decisions you make. So how does Delta Chi help develop character? Character is not a task or project that can simply be assigned to others; it is something that is invoked in the trials and experiences of young men having to figure out right from wrong. It is cultivated in our actions and by holding our brothers accountable. Life will continuously put you in a position where your character is tested. And, if you allow it, Delta Chi and the lessons learned through it, will provide you guidance in those critical moments as you navigate your way along the course. It is up to us, as men, to rise up and pass these tests of honor, integrity, and courage. The media is littered with instances of brothers failing certain tests of character. In every situation, all it took was one brother to stand up and say, “Enough,” or “No,” or “Stop.” When one man makes a mistake, he failed to exemplify good character; but when a fraternity makes a mistake, all its members have failed. I freely admit that as an undergraduate I failed many of the tests of character that were thrown my way by Delta Chi. But fraternity is a collection of men, and our success resides in our ability to stand up and say, “No” at a critical time. And when we fail to do so, to pick ourselves and that fallen brother and challenge us all to do better the next time. I remember being a new initiate and standing in a room, while other brothers were hazing and ridiculing some associate members. I sincerely regret not having had the courage to tell them to stop. My character was tested and rather than rising up to be a better man, I stooped to being nothing more than an ordinary sheep in a

disappointing flock. We were lucky to have men of character present that night to eventually stop the inappropriate behavior and be a positive influence for those of us who failed. That night I made a commitment to myself that I would not falter again and a few years later, as a senior, a similar circumstance came along and I had the courage to get in front of everyone and stop the madness. I believed in myself to know that I would be a man, even if it meant being the most unpopular man at the time! Unbeknownst to me, Delta Chi had made a significant impact on my character, I had learned that I had to stand up and challenge myself to be a better person. Being a Delta Chi does not end at graduation, nor should its ideals. As an alumnus, ‘developing character’ is just as relevant to your personal growth as it was when you were an undergraduate. Your ability to develop character resides in being a positive influence for our younger brothers. As a support alumnus, your character is tested when your chapter is doing something wrong. Do you look the other way because you do not want to interfere or do you stand up and challenge what is going on? Your character is tested when our brothers call for our help. Whether we pass or not is dependent on our ability to respond in time. I ask that you continue to make Delta Chi a priority and that you rise up and do the right thing when you are faced with those tests of character. These “opportunities” to show your true character continue in the workplace, in your community and even at home. I firmly believe that every one of you have character. It took character to seek higher education. It takes character to stay current on your bills and to honor a commitment to an oath. But claiming to be a person of character is not enough; you have to be able to act with character. Delta Chi is in need of men who act with character, and so is mankind. It is my sincere wish that after reading this article you will pause and think about how Delta Chi has helped develop your character and how you will challenge your chapter or others to exemplify good character. I would love to publish some of your specific examples, so please email me at: aa@deltachi.org so we may share our experiences. Be a man; be a Delta Chi.

Convention review

The 57th International Convention The 57th International Convention, held at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel from August 11-14, 2010, was attended by more than 310 student members, as well as more than 185 alumni and guests from across North America. For the first time ever, members unable to attend were connected to the four days of programming, legislation, brotherhood and festivities through the Fraternity’s live webcasts and social media interaction throughout the Convention.

Convention Kick-off and Awards Presentation

New Orleans

Delta Chi

Patrick Alderdice, Ball State ’92, and Paul Picciani, Connecticut ’89, returned as the Convention Kick-off’s emcees. Over 100 viewers joined the Convention guests in viewing the entertaining show through the Fraternity’s first live broadcast online. After introducing the Executive Committee, who entered dressed in Saints jerseys, Alderdice and Picciani announced over 250 programming awards (see pages 8-9 for a complete list of all award recipients). Their dialog was accompanied by the slapstick antics of the Swingaroux band, a local Dixie band. Midway through announcing awards, Picciani received a call and invited some very special guests to join him on stage. The doors in the back of the room flew open, and Ben Wise ’08 and Mark York ’12, South Dakota State Chapter brothers, appeared carrying a canoe. These two men led a canoeing expedition from Brookings, SD to New Orleans, LA with the purpose of raising awareness and funds for the V Foundation. Upon arriving in New Orleans, York recalled, “We exchanged emotionally charged handshakes, and Ben and I then carried the canoe on our shoulders to the [Marriott]...Two thousand three hundred miles in 48 days – that’s what it took to move one canoe from the Delta Chi house in Brookings, SD to New Orleans, LA.” At the conclusion of the Convention Kick-Off, Alderdice and Picciani announced the recipients of the Fraternity’s Award of Excellence. The members of these chapters joined the “AA” for a private reception with a beautiful view of the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans for a preview of what would be a Convention to remember.

Thursday, August 12th

General Sessions Elections, Delta Chi Law & Ritual Changes A procession of the Board of Regents, past “AA”s, “BB”s, and members of the Order of the White Carnation began the first general session on Thursday morning. Gil Werntz, Georgia Southern ’85, called the session to order as “FF”. The Convention Chorus sang the Bond Song, and then Tom Horowitz, “AA”, led the delegates in the recitation of the Preamble. Executive Director Ray Galbreth, Missouri ’69, recognized attendees based on the number of Conventions attended. Jimmie J. “Doc” Underwood, Kansas ’51, was 4 Delta Chi | Quarterly | Fall 2010

recognized for attending his 24th Convention, with many others hoping to follow in his footsteps. Delegates gave a standing ovation to Underwood and others for their dedication to Delta Chi. General Session I reviewed the following items regarding Delta Chi Law: a number of technical changes to Delta Chi Law regarding Vice Regents, Regional Leadership Conferences, alumnus status, student status, the term of the “BB”, filling vacancies on the Board of Regents, changing the names of chapters and the waiver of dues for faculty or alumni initiates. The Convention also approved a change in Delta Chi Law that deletes the dues exemption for men initiated during that same school year. This change was adopted in lieu of a dues increase. Following the adoption of the legislative items above, nominations were received for Executive Committee positions. R.C. Damle, Texas ’01, was nominated for “AA”. Charles Cheatham, Louisiana Tech ’88; Aaron Otto, Kansas State ’98; and Bill Tallman, Embry-Riddle ’95; were nominated for “CC”. Miles Washburn, Massachusetts ’87, was nominated for “DD”. The Convention delegates then heard the presentation of two of the four men to be inducted into the Order of the White Carnation. The delegates unanimously approved all four men. Welcomed into the Order of the White Carnation at that time were Paul Bohlman, Ohio State ’70, and Don LaPlante, Southern California Faculty. General Session I closed with all attendees posing for the Convention photo before heading off for lunch. After lunch, the delegates entered their respective Regional Caucuses for a “question and answer” session regarding the elections of the “AA”, “CC”, and “DD”. General Session II saw R.C. Damle unanimously elected as Delta Chi’s 51st “AA”. Bill Tallman was elected to serve as “CC”, and Miles Washburn was elected as “DD”. Tom Horowitz will now assume the role of Retiring “AA”. The Convention then adjourned for a break and dinner. After dinner, the delegates witnessed the Ritual exemplification, a model rehearsal of the Fraternity’s Ritual, and called to order the third General Session of the day. During the Ritualistic Session, there were some small changes made in the Ritual Manual to enhance the understanding of and protect the integrity of the Ritual. Greg Hauser, Michigan State ’75, presented the

Friday, August 13th

Foundation Luncheon & Educational Sessions The 8th Biennial Kimball Classic golf tournament kicked off Friday morning. Participants enjoyed a round of golf at the Stonebridge Golf Club just minutes from downtown New Orleans. Friday morning and afternoon, attendees could choose to attend an array of educational seminars, beginning with a keynote presentation on hazing education given by Dr. Tod Burke and Dr. Stephen Owen, faculty of Radford University. Attendees then chose breakout sessions to benefit their own leadership development and to learn how to better serve their chapters. The Delta Chi Educational Foundation hosted Friday’s luncheon, with presentations by Foundation Representatives Chad Wolett, Arizona State ’94, and Duane Meyer, Hobart ’58 and OWC member. During the luncheon, OWC members also welcomed Charles Mancuso, Florida State ’84, into the Order. Following lunch, attendees were able to choose from several more breakout sessions before enjoying the evening experiencing New Orleans. Many attendees opted to attend evening activities organized by the Fraternity, including a baseball game and ghost tour.

Saturday, August 14th The Big Finish

On Saturday morning, the educational sessions continued, and alumni volunteers and guests shared their personal and professional experiences in small breakout sessions as part of the day-long Alumni Track Program. Graduating seniors and alumni were encouraged to attend in order to learn leadership skills specific to advising undergraduate members. All undergraduate attendees were challenged to be socially excellent by Matt Mattson, President and Co-Founder of Phired Up Productions and the morning’s keynote presenter. Lorrie Bossart elevated all attendees’ understanding of classic and contemporary etiquette through her etiquette luncheon, “Manners Matter: A Luncheon Like No Other.” Kim Novak addressed the attendees as the afternoon keynote speaker with her presentation, “A Call to Action: Creating Communities of Care.” Attendees were free to choose breakout sessions for the remainder of the afternoon on various topics relating to Fraternity life and personal development. Saturday evening brought everyone together for a spectacular gathering of Delta Chis and guests. Including more than 300 viewers from the webcast, more people than ever before shared in Saturday evening’s memories. Tom

Horowitz, “AA”, welcomed all in attendance, and the Convention Chorus, led by Duane Meyer, then sang the United States and Canadian National Anthems to begin the banquet. Tom Horowitz invited John Leshney, Senior Vice President of Development for the V Foundation, and South Dakota State brothers Ben Wise and Mark York on stage to present the check for Delta Chi’s two-year commitment of $130,000. For the next two years, Delta Chi Chapters and Colonies will work to raise $150,000 for the V Foundation. Next, Order of the White Carnation members gathered on stage to induct the fourth man approved on Thursday, U.S. Congressman John Mica, Florida ’67, into their Order. OWC member Greg Hauser, Michigan State ’75, gave the invocation preceding dinner. Following dinner, Ray Galbreth, with assistance from Doc Underwood, started the “Handshake Across Time,” a tradition begun by Founder Monroe Marsh Sweetland to bridge future generations of Delta Chis with the Founders through this meaningful and inspiring tradition. Horowitz presented several Fraternity awards to individuals throughout the evening, including the 2010 Richard N. McKaig Outstanding Greek Professional Award, 2009 & 2010 John J. Kuhn Awards, and 2009 & 2010 Delta Chi of the Year Awards. Miles Washburn received recognition for his status as the Fraternity’s most recent New Founder, with a giving level of $100,000 or more to Delta Chi. Alumni Chapters, along with the Fraternity’s Outstanding “BB”s, Alumni Board of Trustees, and House Corporations, were also recognized. Next, focus shifted to the Fraternity’s top chapters. Horowitz reviewed the Certificate of Achievement recipients from Wednesday before revealing his decisions for the President’s Most Improved Trophies. Horowitz announced the recipients of the President’s Cups, the most prestigious award a Chapter of Delta Chi can receive. Chapters that received the Award of Excellence were all eligible for this award. After Horowitz and attendees recognized Zac Cole, Northern Illinois ’03, for his hard work as Convention Coordinator, attendees learned of the 2012 Convention site through watching a video that panned to a skyline view of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One of Horowitz’ last acts as “AA” was to administer the installation ceremony, swearing in the recently elected officers. Before R.C. Damle closed the Convention with the official gavel, he presented outgoing Board member Steve Bossart, Kent State ’90, with a special resolution commemorating his ten years of service to the Board of Delta Chi. The evening ended with brothers linking arms to sing the Bond Song.

convention Recognition 2009 Delta Chi Of The Year Ashton Kutcher, Iowa ’00

Ashton studied biochemical engineering at the University of Iowa until, in 1997, Kutcher won the “Fresh Faces of Iowa” modeling contest. From there, Kutcher’s modeling and entertainment career took off. His acting résumé includes memorable roles in “Dude, Where’s My Car?”, “The Butterfly Effect,” and “What Happens in Vegas.” Most of us recognize Ashton from “That ’70s Show” and as the host of MTV’s “Punk’d.” Ashton has become one of the most recognizable faces in the world. Not only was Kutcher named to Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People, he continues to be a pioneer in the social media industry. Kutcher co-founded Katalyst, a studio for social media, which was named one of the “Top 10 Most Innovative Companies” by Fast Company magazine. In 2009, he challenged, and defeated, CNN in the race to one million Twitter followers and is currently the second most followed person on Twitter. Additionally, Kutcher, with top executives from eBay and Twitter, assisted Russia in its efforts to start its own Silicon Valley. Kutcher advocates for important causes worldwide, especially child protection. In February 2010, he traveled to Russia as part of President Obama’s first U.S.-Russia Innovation Delegation to address antitrafficking and child protection issues. He and his wife, actress Demi Moore, have created The Demi and Ashton Foundation to eliminate child trafficking worldwide.

2010 Delta Chi Of The Year Ronald Jack mix, Southern California ’60

Ronald Jack Mix earned a scholarship to play football at the University of Southern California. As a Trojan, Mix garnered attention from AFL and NFL talent scouts and was also elected the National Jewish College Athlete of the Year. Mix began his professional career as an original member of the Los Angeles Chargers. He earned the nickname, “The Intellectual Assassin,” as a player for continuing his academic education, eventually earning a law degree. Mix believed in both mental and physical strength as necessary attributes for a successful player. He was an early proponent of weight lifting to improve athletic power and a true student of the game. Ron Mix enjoyed a successful 11-season career as a Los Angeles Charger and Oakland Raider Offensive Tackle. Mix was named as an AFL All-Star for nine straight seasons and received only two holding penalties during that time period. He was also a member of the 1963 AFL Champion Los Angeles Chargers. Mix retired from professional football after the 1971 season and, in 1979, was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Mix currently practices law in San Diego, CA and focuses on representing retired professional athletes.

2009-2010 AWARD WINNERS The Delta Chi Awards Program is designed to recognize and promote those areas that are critical to the success of the chapter. The “E” Key, the Fraternity’s oldest award, and the Marge Lee Outstanding “C” Award recognize the performance of two vital chapter officers. For the other awards, the Fraternity is divided into two divisions: Red and Buff. The Red Division contains those chapters with 15 or more fraternities on their campuses or whose Greek systems have over 30 percent of the undergraduate student body. The remaining chapters make up the Buff Division. In recognition of the chapter’s performance on campus and within the community, the Outstanding Campus Leadership, Outstanding Community Service Program, Outstanding Intramural Program, Outstanding Membership Recruitment Program, Outstanding Scholarship Program, Outstanding Financial Management, Outstanding Website, and Outstanding Ritual and Ceremonies Awards were presented. In addition, alumni chapters were recognized for outstanding performance in the following areas: Outstanding Communication Program, Outstanding Recruitment and Retention, and Outstanding Website. These awards address the important alumni programming areas of a chapter: the Outstanding Alumni Board of Trustees, Outstanding Alumni Newsletter, Outstanding “BB” Awards, Outstanding House Corporation, and Outstanding Faculty Advisor. Chapters that have shown a marked improvement in their overall operations are given the Certificate of Achievement. The “AA” selects the winner of the Most Improved Chapter from the recipients of this award. The winners of the Award of Excellence show strength across the board. In most cases they are winners of several awards. When they are not, they show above average performance in all areas with no area of weakness. From the recipients of the Award of Excellence, the “AA” selects the President’s Cup winners. 8 Delta Chi | Quarterly | Fall 2010

chapter situations Corrective Action Levels

THIRD PARTY VENDOR CRITERIA (continued)

5. Agree in writing to cash sales only, collected by the vendor during the function.

6. Assume in writing all the responsibilities that any other purveyor of alcoholic beverages would assume in the normal course of business, including but not limited to:

a. Checking identification cards upon entry;

c. Not serving individuals that appear to be intoxicated;

b. Not serving minors;

d. Maintaining absolute control of ALL alcoholic containers present;

e. Collecting all remaining alcohol at the end of a function (no excess alcohol – opened or unopened – is to be given, sold or furnished to the chapter); f. Removing all alcohol from the premises.

POLICY GUIDELINES According to FIPG 1. Closed parties (meaning those events with alcohol present) should have a guest list prepared at least 24 hours in advance. A ratio of two guests per member (or fire code capacity, whichever is smaller) is suggested. 2. “Non-alcoholic” keg beer is not permitted because it can contain up to .05 percent alcohol. Therefore, serving it would be a violation of our policy. According to the Delta Chi Risk Management Manual 1. At chapter social events, signs should be posted that indicate the chapter complies with and enforces the laws and policies with respect to alcohol, illegal drugs, and controlled substances.

2. All persons present should not be allowed access to alcohol if they are intoxicated, regardless of age. 3. Alcohol should only be used as an adjunct to the event rather than its focus.

4. The use of alcohol on the premises should be stopped at least one hour before the end of the function. 5. Plenty of non-salty foods and non-alcoholic alternative beverages should be provided. 6. Adequate professional security should be provided to deal with uninvited guests and monitor any other potential problems.

7. Trained party monitors should be present to respond to situations. A ratio of one party monitor for every 20 attendees is suggested. Party monitors should agree to the following:

a. Not to consume alcohol, and remain sober for the duration of the event;

b. Make sure the party starts and ends on time and that the bar opens and closes on time; c. Wear distinctive clothing to identify themselves at all times.

8. Buses, taxis, phone numbers, etc. should be provided for any event to promote the safe return of members and guests.

9. “Hard” liquor (alcohol rated by proof rather than percentage) should be prohibited from all parties. For “bring your own” parties, a six pack of beer (or the alcoholic equivalent), or less, per person is allowed. 10. Glass bottles of any sort should not be allowed. Restrict consumption of any beverages to cans and plastic cups.

What follows is a list of chapters that are on Corrective Action for violation of the Risk Management Policy as of October 1, 2010. That is not to say the chapters on the following list are “bad” chapters. Likewise, it is unrealistic to assume that chapters that are not on this list are complying with every policy. The bottom line of this issue is that members of the Fraternity are engaging As of October 1, 2010 in dangerous activities and Chapter Violation Level taking unnecessary risks with their future and the American Hazing I Appalachian State Alcohol/Hazing IV future of Delta Chi because Arizona Alcohol/Drugs I they believe this will help Bowling Green Alcohol IV fill voids where their needs Cal Poly Alcohol II are not being met.
