Under Fraternity governance, the biennial District Council Meetings were held this summer. Chapters were required to send at least one delegate to their respective meeting in their district. During the meetings, members focused on training and education related to the Fraternity and their chapters. A critical aspect of District Council Meetings is the election of Archons. Archons elected at these meetings will sit on the Executive Council until the summer of 2025.

A critical aspect of District Council meetings is the election of Archons. Elected by brothers in their District, an Archon is an undergraduate brother that will sit on the Phi Kappa Psi Executive Council. Archons elected at the District Council meeting will sit on the Executive Council until the summer of 2025.

Further information will be given at each meeting should an individual nominate themself or be nominated by a fellow brother. Please expect to answer the following questions during the meeting:

  • Introduction: Please include a short bio of yourself, how you stay involved on both your campus and in Phi Psi and any other information you feel is important to share with us.
  • What does being a member of a national fraternity mean to you both as an individual and as a member of your chapter?
  • Pick a section of The Creed and explain it importance to you as a man and as a potential Archon.
  • What do you want to accomplish in your role as an Archon?
  • Why do you feel you are qualified for the Archon position? What strengths do you bring to this position?

Meetings will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday. During the meeting, the primary function is to elect the District Archon, but the meeting will also address district business, provide an update on the National Fraternity and other activities. After the meetings have concluded, attendees will take part in an evening event and dinner.
