Phi Psi: Tell us about your favorite memory from your time in the chapter.
Conner: My favorite memory would be my farewell chapter at the end of the year. I thought I would be worried about leaving the chapter that I loved so much behind. But that night, hearing all of the undergraduates tell stories about the graduating brothers and the impacts that they had on their lives made me realize that my chapter was in safe hands. These younger guys were ready and able to continue to grow and protect the brotherhood that has meant so much to me.
Phi Psi: Why did you want to be a consultant for the Fraternity?
Conner: I believe that every brother should stay connected and give back to the fraternity. We have taken a sacred oath to join this brotherhood for eternity, and I intend to remain as involved as I can. The fraternity has given me so much over my time as an undergrad that I wanted to be able to give back however I could.
Phi Psi: What do you think will be the biggest challenge on the road?
Conner: I believe the biggest challenge on the road will be the lack of time. We only have a few days at each chapter to try and make a meaningful impact. I want to make sure every chapter is doing as well as possible, and the only way that we can get that done will be through hard work and efficiency. But a great deal of our success will rely on the undergraduate brothers preparation and attitudes.
Phi Psi: What particular skills are you bringing to the position?
Conner: The particular skill that I will be bringing to the position is innovation. I believe that there is always a better way to do everything. I hope to work with the chapters to better understand who they are as a unique entity. We need to encourage their strengths and develop a plan for success that builds on what they currently have and what they hope to be. Phi Kappa Psi is not a cookie-cutter organization. The breadth of membership will really test our ability to come up with unique and meaningful solutions and goals for each chapter.
We are excited to have Conner on the team here at Phi Psi Headquarters. If you would like to reach out and send him your congratulations, his email is CEB@phikappapsi.com. Although it sounds completely cliche, he's coming to a campus near you!
