FROM THE “AA”
s we recently finished celebrating our 126th year of existence, please close your eyes and go on a brief journey with me. Picturing your life now, think about: • The great events, road trips and memories you have in Delta Chi; • The future weddings and other, major life events of your brothers that you will be part of; • Your kids playing with the kids of your fraternity brothers in the future; • Growing old hanging around with the old gang of alumni; • All of the new ideas or ways to look at life you have gained from conventions and being around your fraternity brothers; and • The amazing and strong friendships you have made through Delta Chi. That is a pretty sweet world. A reality we would all be very proud to live in. Now, visualize a very different world in which your life exists without Delta Chi.

• Great memories from events and road trips with your brothers;
• Possible future business partners; • Possibilities of growing old together as neighbors; and • Every friendship you have with a fraternity brother, every relationship you made with others because of Delta Chi, and everything you gained from those relationships.
It is amazing how your life would be different if you had not joined Delta Chi. As you can see, the fraternity has already changed your life and you will only continue to notice Delta Chi's impact on you into the future. As a fraternity, we not only impact lives but we are CHANGING lives for the better. This is why the Delta Chi International Fraternity matters. This is why I continue to be involved, dedicating my time and treasure to our beloved fraternity - to ensure we are growing and strengthening a dynamic organization that continues to improve our members' lives. Another way our members have improved the lives of others is through volunteer service in the military. As we honored those who served this past Veterans Day, Delta Chi would especially like to recognize brothers who served in a combat zone by offering them the Delta Chi Men at War Pin. If you have served in a combat zone please do not hesitate to let me know so we can properly recognize your service. Lastly, as we come off of celebrating Founder’s Day, I am pleased to announce, after several decades since it was last produced, the return of the traditional alumni key for sale to Delta Chi alumni. This key charm originally was worn on a chain and could be used to wind a pocket watch. International Headquarters showcases Founder Thomas D. Waktins' alumni key, from which the new key is replicated. Look for further information in the coming weeks about your opportunity to own a piece of history with this traditional alumni key available soon from Delta Chi. As your 53rd “AA”, if there is anything I can do for you please do not hesitate to let me know. In the Bond,
Aaron Otto 53rd “AA” Kansas State 1998 Life Loyal

DELTA CHI’S 9TH EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR & CEO
Q&A with Keith Shriver Florida 1979 Tell us about when you first decided to apply for the role and what made you feel like you would be a good fit for it. I decided to apply almost immediately after learning of Justin’s decision to depart. I was encouraged by some brothers whom I’ve been close to for a number of years. It seemed like a great fit and great decision. Tell us about the interview process and how you prepared for it. The interview process took place over several weeks, in five stages. The search committee selected a nationally-known not-for-profit firm to manage these stages. My first three discussions took place with various members of the firm, including a Skype meeting with the firm’s principal. The last two stages were on-site interviews with the five search committee members. At each stage, all candidates were given specific instructions on what to prepare for the next round, so it was very structured. They asked for certain things to be thought about, gathered and prepared. I utilized many resource items I had in my hard and electronic files, including things from my professional and Delta Chi activities. Tell us a bit about your professional background and how you think it prepared you for this role. My background was a great match for the role. After graduate school, I worked as a Fraternity/Sorority Life advisor at two universities, at the time the drinking age was changing from 19 to 21! The work I’ve done as a Human Resources generalist, manager, director, and later consultant, was excellent preparation. Problem-solving, small group facilitation, writing, presenting, and advising have been part of my professional life for many years.
What do you think are some of the most integral components to successful leadership? Those components must include communication, trust, belief, and action. I must always listen to others and permit them the time to express their thoughts, but also encourage others who may be hesitant to say something. Trust and belief are critical in working with others, and action is what our brotherhood and larger educational community expects of us but will also admire when we truly deliver. Can you share a few fun facts about yourself? I am a classic rocker, and have played music with others for many years. I am a bassist and acoustic guitarist, and own both traditional bass guitars as well as an electric upright. I am hoping to find some type of gig in Iowa City. That will require more effort than the scene in Atlanta. The last project in Atlanta took my out of my classic rock space and into a folk/country/blues fusion thing. I was able to use the upright exclusively for that. It was great. I also support local pet rescue efforts. The IHQ staff has recently reached out to a nearby pet rescue operation north of Iowa City, and we will be working with them on some weekends going forward. This place not only has cats, but has an emu, pythons, giant tortoises, an alligator, and a bear. Alligators in Iowa?!?
What excites you most about serving as the Executive Director & CEO of Delta Chi? It was exciting to return to Iowa City after 34 years, having served previously as an LC and Director of Chapter Services with former Executive Director Ray Galbreth. Those opportunities really propelled my Delta Chi experiences and eventually resulted in my hiring as the ninth Executive Director & CEO. What is most exciting is that I get to work with highly dedicated Delta Chi professionals and administrative staff, many of whom have a significant number of years of collective experience and skill. This was especially critical this year with the Executive Director & CEO transition and our migration to the OmegaFi database and the MyDCHI data environment. What are some of your biggest goals for our organization as you step into this role? The 2021 Strategic Initiatives are our biggest goals, and really, the only goals! It is a detailed roadmap of our commitment to grow and develop over the next five years. It concise and focused and will result in a better Fraternity that makes better use of its tremendous internal resources, primarily its alumni, chapter and colony members. What does being a Delta Chi mean to you? When I think of this question, I am reminded of the first of four principles of the Preamble, which is Friendship. Delta Chi gatherings, formal, informal, large and small, are reunions of best friends. In my 40th year as a Delta Chi, this is even more important to me as an individual. It’s a great way to travel through life!

In early 2016, 52nd “AA” Miles Washburn and the Fraternity’s Executive Committee were tasked with finding a new Executive Director & CEO to lead Delta Chi after 8th Executive Director Justin Sherman announced that he would be moving on to new opportunities. After a search committee was formed, and several rounds of extensive interviews were conducted, Keith Shriver, Florida 1979 was selected for the role. Keith began his role at Delta Chi International Headquarters on June 30th, 2016. Keith’s career with Delta Chi began in 1976 when he joined the Jacksonville University (FL) colony before transferring to the University of Florida as a sophomore. There he affiliated with the Florida chapter and served as “B”, “C”, AMC, and Region VIII RLC Coordinator. After graduating with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism, he joined the IHQ staff as a Leadership Consultant and served his second year as Director of Chapter Services. Keith earned a Master’s in Education at Bowling Green State University in 1983, and then went on to serve as a Greek Advisor and Assistant Dean at Emory and Colgate Universities, respectively. Keith has also served Delta Chi in numerous volunteer capacities, as a Vice Regent, Regent, “BB”, ABT President, Housing Corp Board member, “A”s Academy facilitator, and as “CC” from 2012-14. He was inducted into The Order of the White Carnation at the Las Vegas Convention in 2008. Keith also brings more than 25 years of experience in Human Resources to the role, most recently serving as an independent contractor and consultant with Emerson Human Capital Consulting, Inc. When asked about the selection of Keith as the new Executive Director & CEO, 52nd “AA” Miles Washburn emphasized that Delta Chi was in need of the level and length of experience that Keith would be able to bring to the role.

IN MEMORY OF
Jimmie “Doc” Underwood Kansas 1951
t is with heavy hearts that Delta Chis across the globe mourn the passing of Jimmie “Doc” Underwood following the tremendous service he provided to the Fraternity. After 68 years of membership, his work on this earth is complete, and he has moved on to the eternal Higher Court. Without a doubt, Doc provided tremendous service that continuously impacted the course of Delta Chi history. Doc began his lifelong endeavor in 1948 after becoming an associate member at the University of Kansas. He moved into the chapter house immediately, and claimed he, “didn’t leave it for four years.” This holds true to Doc’s involvement throughout his life with Delta Chi, as his commitment to the bond never ceased as time went on. Upon graduating from the University of Kansas in 1951, Doc went on to four years of dental school and two years of serving in the Air Force in Germany. Upon his return to the states, he once again found himself in Lawrence, Kansas – this time opening up his own dental practice. Soon after, Doc would find himself as the “BB” of the Kansas Chapter, a position he would go on to hold for 15 years. He also would attend his first of 26 conventions in the summer of 1960 in Indianapolis. The 1960 convention signaled a large change in governance to Delta Chi. At the time, there was an informal group known as the “XX”. The “XX” was made up of all of the “BB”s from chapters across the nation, meeting during Conventions only. Just two years later at the 1962 Convention, Doc found himself elected the president of the “XX.” Later in the same day, the Fraternity adopted a new governance model, called the Board of Regents, and they dissolved the “XX.” When asked about the experience, Doc claimed “I was half-a-day president of the ‘XX’, and it was probably a good thing.” Following the elimination of the “XX,” the Regent system was adopted, which is the same model still used by the Fraternity today.
Delta Chi Involvement & Recognition Founded the tradition of May Meeting for alumni at the Kansas Chapter Recognized as “BB” Emeritus for 15 years of service in 1977 Served as a Regent three times Attended numerous Regional Leadership Conferences
Just ten years later, Doc Found himself serving as a Regent, and believed that in order to do the job to the best of his ability, he would need some assistance. He requested that the Board of Regents allow him to have a Vice-Regent, and the position was granted, marking the first Vice-Regent position in Delta Chi history. His first Vice-Regent, Nick Gray, Missouri 1956, would become “CC” in 1977, and later be elected “AA.”
Attended 26 International Conventions, having attended his first in 1960
During Doc’s time as an alumnus, he also bared witness to significant financial struggles of the Delta Chi Educational Foundation, including internal struggles for a capital campaign. Becoming involved with the Foundation was not something he had planned on, but after being asked for involvement from Marsh White and George Obear, he did so, claiming, “If those two brothers asked you to do something, you did it, and were glad that they had thought of you.”
Member of the Order of the Shield giving level
During the 1983 Convention in Nashville, Doc was elected President of the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. It was during this service that Doc would go on to lead the Foundation to over $1,000,000 in contributions.
Helped to establish Delta Chi at the University of South Florida in 2000 and served as “BB”
His immense service to Delta Chi earned him the honors of “BB” Emeritus, and membership in the Order of the White Carnation. When asked about his involvement, Doc stated, “I was happy to be involved and happy to have been given opportunities to serve.” Without a doubt, Brother Underwood was a part of touching many lives across generations, and shaping the Delta Chi that we know and love today. We thank Doc for his distinguished service to the fraternity, and hope that his example encourages all members to hold the core values of Delta Chi, and the notion of a lifelong endeavor true in his honor.
Served as president of the Delta Chi Educational Foundation from 1983 to 1992
Took the Foundation to over $1,000,000 in contributions Inducted in to the Order of the White Carnation in 1985

elta Chi’s 60th International Convention kicked off on the evening of Wednesday, July 27th at Louisville Slugger Field, home of the Louisville Bats. Brothers and guests from across the globe gathered at the Hall of Fame Pavilion to reconnect, meet new friends, and get excited for what was to come throughout the rest of the convention. Attendees were welcomed by 52nd “AA”, Miles Washburn, and enjoyed refreshments and a venue that would prepare everyone for an exciting baseball game later that evening. The convention attendees later moved to the main stadium at Slugger Field to watch the Louisville Bats defeat the Charlotte Knights 4-0. The real highlight of the game however, was 52nd “AA”, Miles Washburn throwing out the first pitch. This was surely a night to remember for all convention attendees and set the stage for a fantastic convention to come! Normal convention business kicked off on Thursday morning with regional caucuses where attendees were able to receive updates on the state of each region, learn about delegate voting procedures for the convention, and hear from all candidates running for international office of the Fraternity. Once regional caucuses wrapped up, attendees proceeded to the ballroom for general fraternity business sessions. Fraternity dignitaries and international officers were introduced by 52nd “AA”, Miles Washburn, and the business began shortly after. Visit deltachiconvention.org/ dxc16recap for updates on all fraternity business voted on at convention.

The Convention continued on Friday after a day full of fraternity business. Several attendees started their day by attending the annual Kimball Classic Golf Tournament at the Seneca Golf Course. Other attendees were excited to attend the first keynote session, “Creating a Rape Culture-Free Brotherhood” by Duane De Four. The day continued with a variety of breakout sessions ranging on topics from chapter finance, to alumni support, and even methods of how to take home what attendees learn at convention and implement it in their chapter. Attendees were also able to celebrate the success of members, chapters, and colonies across the United States and Canada during the annual achievements luncheon, where core competency, individual, and Delta Chi Educational Foundation award and scholarship winners were announced. Later that evening, attendees were present for the “Endeavor” program, where the exciting new components of Delta Chi were announced, including the 2016 Emerging Leaders Academy taking place in Cornell, NY; the winners of various composite and alumni awards; and the number of generous alumni who achieved new giving levels with the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. The evening wrapped up with various receptions to celebrate the accomplishments of all award winners.

The final day of convention wrapped up with the “Lead the Pack Reception” and closing banquet, where several exciting announcements were made. Congressman John Mica also joined the convention delegation for the evening. The banquet kicked off by presenting the biennial check to The V Foundation for Cancer Research for $490,000, bringing the exciting news that since partnering with The V Foundation in 2006, Delta Chi chapters and colonies have raised over $1,000,000 for the cause! The evening concluded with recognition and installation of the Fraternity’s new Executive Committee, “AA” Aaron Otto, “CC” Tom Carroll, and “DD” Ron Martin. Of course, no evening nor convention would be complete without the Bond Song with all brothers and guests involved, and that is just what happened. Thank you to all who attended the 60th International Convention, and we hope you will join us as we “Reach New Heights” in Denver in 2018!

Awards & Recognition
t is the Fraternity’s goal to recognize and promote the achievements of our chapters, colonies, alumni and advisors on a chapter, colony, regional and international level. The awards and recognition program allows chapters and colonies the opportunity to showcase their outstanding or improved performance over the past academic year in each of the Fraternity’s core competencies. Individual awards recognize the brothers and friends of Delta Chi for their outstanding service to the Fraternity in a variety of capacities. To be eligible for awards, chapters or colonies must be current on all bills to the Fraternity as of June 1 and must not be on any level of risk management sanction during the year of awards consideration. Once all applications are received, the Fraternity staff
objectively evaluates each and every application before recognizing the efforts of our chapters and colonies based upon Delta Chi’s eight core competencies for success: • Advising & Governance • Alumni Relations • Financial Management • Housing
• Involvement • Manpower • Membership Education • Scholarship
There are two categories of awards given for each core competency. The Excellence category denotes a complete mastery of that competency; winners in this category fulfill the many components of each area and often go above and beyond to reach new heights of operations. The Achievement category recognizes chapters and colonies that have made significant improvements in this area of operations.

The pageant began as the Indiana chapter’s cooperative philanthropic event for the V Foundation and has quickly become one of the premiere campus and community philanthropic events each year. While a student and as president of IU Delta Chi Charities, Inc. (2012-2014), Jackson’s vision and hard work led the chapter to raise over $122,000 for the V Foundation for Cancer Research and 19 other campus and community charities. Since the event’s founding in 2012, the Indiana chapter has gone on to raise over $200,000 for the V Foundation and in 2016 alone raised approximately $54,000. The Miss Greek IU Pageant and the Indiana chapter have led all Delta Chi chapters in philanthropic funds raised each year in recent history.

Colony Founding Fathers
elta Chi Fraternity continues to grow as we expanded to two new campuses this semester! The expansion team traveled to Kingsville, Texas this fall to set up a colony at Texas A&M University, Kingsville (TAMUK). Led by the Fraternity’s consultant staff, over 240 leads for potential new members were accumulated within the first two weeks on campus from sorority referrals, faculty/staff referrals, information sessions, and meet and greet opportunities. The staff sought out men who identified with the core values of friendship, character, justice, and education; had a minimum 2.8 grade point average, and were looking to leave a legacy on the TAMUK Campus. After several weeks of recruitment, interviews, and friendship building events, 26 men were offered the opportunity to become Founders of the Kingsville Colony. Already the colony has established themselves on campus by achieving the top grade point average in all of fraternity and sorority life, winning the homecoming float competition with Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority, and having five members inducted into Order of Omega, a Greek Honor Society (Adolfo Enciso, Christopher Charles, Jared Gillam, Oluwatomisin Alagbe, and Pedro Gonzalez). Congratulations to the newly initiated Founders of the Kingsville Colony, we look forward to seeing what you will do for Delta Chi in the future!

elta Chi also found great success at the University of Delaware this semester, as consultants Michael Kennedy, Dan Henne, and Nicholas Ohl led the expansion efforts this fall in Newark, DE. As the largest campus Delta Chi has expanded to in the past several years, these men led the Fraternity to Delta Chi’s largest expansion in recent history. Over five weeks the staff members were able to pin and initiate 143 Founders. The Founders include 33 freshmen, 75 sophomores, 32 juniors, and 3 seniors who were all looking to leave their mark on campus and create the Delaware Colony of Delta Chi. The men hold a wide variety of leadership and involvement positions across campus, and are well prepared to make a name for the chapter as the largest fraternity on campus in just their first semester. Leadership Consultant Michael Kennedy led the educational period of the expansion and was in charge of all officer training and educating the men on chapter operations. We look forward to seeing the impact that the Delaware Colony will be able to make on the University of Delaware and Newark communities!
