My Interests

There are many ways for a member to stay involved with the Fraternity. Please review the opportunities below and check the box to the left of the items that interest you. We will contact you with more information on how you can become involved. Expanded descriptions of each interest can be found below the list. 

**Members must be logged in to see the form to update interests.

Collegiate Expansion Committee – The collegiate experience of Alpha Chi Sigma is something special for all of us. Lifelong friendships, a common interest in chemistry, and the fraternal experience help make the Brotherhood extremely meaningful. By helping to create or reactivate chapters, you will bring the benefits of the Fraternity to those who have not had that experience available to them. The Collegiate Expansion Committee is chaired by Jennifer Schnippert, Gamma Beta 2003.

District Committee – Each District Counselor has a District Committee that serves as an extension of that DC. Roles and activities are directed by the DC and may include making chapter visits as needed, reviewing chapter bylaws, speaking at a district Conclave, etc. 

District Counselor – A District Counselor (DC) is appointed biennially for each district. The District Counselor must be an active professional member and may be removed at the discretion of the Supreme Council. District Counselors maintain close contact with the chapters in the district, acting as an advisor on behalf of the Supreme Council; visit each chapter in the district at least once each year or designate a representative to make the visit; preside over district meetings; and place on probation, subject to the approval of the Supreme Council, any chapter in the district that fails to comply with Fraternity requirements. District Counselors attend Conclave and vote on Grand Chapter legislation and are ex officio members of all policy-determining committees of each collegiate chapter in the district. The District Committee consists of professional members residing in the District who work to assist the District Counselor in his or her duties. The DC Committee is chaired by Sarah Pickett, Gamma Theta 2000. 

Housed Chapter Advisory Committee (HCAC) – The Housed Chapter Advisory Committee acts as a resource for the house chapters of the Fraternity. The committee provides advice and insight to the chapters and acts as a means for members of the various house chapters and housing corporations to interact and exchange ideas and advice. The Housed Chapter Advisory Committee is chaired by Michael Quan, Sigma 1993.

Professional Expansion Committee – The Alpha Chi Sigma experience does not end with graduation. The Professional Branch is a vibrant part of the Fraternity that helps you meet other Brothers in your area, helps you get involved with community outreach activities, and keeps you involved with the Fraternity. Starting a professional chapter or group is a simple process, and there may already be people in your area looking to establish a professional chapter or group. The Professional Expansion Committee is chaired by Kerri Federico, Mu 2008.

Professional Representative – Professional Representatives (PRs) enhance the value of lifelong membership within the Fraternity. To accomplish this, they provide representation for professional members at large, aid in the transition of collegiate members to the Professional Branch and facilitate involvement in professional and social activities. PRs attend Conclaves, serve as members of Grand Chapter committees, and vote on Grand Chapter legislation. Each PR serves a two-year term, with half of the positions being elected by secret ballot in the fall each year. Professional Representatives must be active professional members of the Fraternity. By selecting your interest in becoming a Professional Representative, you will be added to a list that is considered each year.

Ritual Committee - The initiation ceremony of Alpha Chi Sigma is arguably one of the most elaborate and impressive rituals of any collegiate fraternal order. At various times since the first ritual was performed in 1903, it has become necessary to review and revise the ceremony. Changes to the initiation ceremony are not made lightly. This committee provides assistance to the Grand Master of Ceremonies by conducting research into alchemy, heraldry, and the history of rituals. 

Scholar Award Committee - The Alpha Chi Sigma Scholar is selected by the Scholar Award Committee. The committee consists of five distinguished chemists, who are members of Alpha Chi Sigma. Nominations for the award are solicited annually. Selection is made on the basis of outstanding scholarship for undergraduates and on the basis of original chemical research for graduate students. 

Special Needs Committee – The Special Needs Committee is a standing committee that is tasked to address issues that affect Brothers who have special needs. In the past, this committee has crafted legislation in support of our visually impaired members and advised on the suitability of different pledge manual formats for visually impaired members and pledges. This committee also proposed legislation allowing the presence of sign language interpreters at initiation. Additionally, this committee has provided advice to chapters on how to assist pledges and Brothers with limited mobility and visual and hearing impairments. The Special Needs Committee is chaired by Cary Supalo, Beta Nu 1997.
