Archon Elections

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 2023.

The Archon candidacy form is now closed for submissions. Archon nominations can be made at the District Council meeting. 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.

  • 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?

Meetings will begin after lunch on that Saturday. During the meeting, we will address district business, provide an update on the National Fraternity and hold Archon Elections.
