IFC elects new Executive Board

The Interfraternity Council held its weekly meeting last Wednesday. Representatives from the men’s hockey team and the Houston Field House, including Norris Pearson ’11 and John Kennedy ’11, spoke about plans for Greek Hockey Night and extended their appreciation for greek support at games. Additionally, elections continued from last week and members of the executive board gave their weekly reports.

President Jesse Barr ’10 mentioned that he would be meeting with Acting Assistant Vice President of Student Life Tom Tarantelli to create a plan to assist greeks in communicating with the Institute; there should be a draft released shortly.

Vice President of Social Ryan Koehler ’11 provided additional information about Greek Hockey Night. There will be competitions throughout the evening in which houses can receive prizes such as a free hour of ice time during next fall’s rush. Additionally, Koehler is trying to reduce the ticket price for general admission to the price paid by greeks, $3.

Vice President of Philanthropy Ken Hutchison ’11 urged delegates to remind their houses to sign up for the Halloween parade last Saturday around the ’86 Field. Additionally, Vice President of Risk Management Drew Fineberg ’11 announced that he was in the process of working with Professor Roger Grice to finalize the Risk Handbook.

Vice President of Public Relations Josh Seldin ’11 once again requested that delegates return the names of three event volunteers for the list of compiled volunteers to contact should an event need assistance. Additionally, the banner system is being updated. Finally, Representative for Fraternity and Sorority Affairs Richard Morris ’09 requested that signed bids be submitted to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs.

Elections also continued from last week. Previously, the positions of president, executive vice president, and vice president of recruitment were elected. John Mason ’11, an Acacia brother, was elected to the position of president. Ken Hutchison ’11, the current vice president of philanthropy and a Pi Kappa Phi brother, was elected to the position of executive vice president. Finally, Delroy Waugh ’12, a Phi Kappa Alpha brother, was elected to the position of Vice president of recruitment after running unopposed.

The elections continued for the positions of vice president of philanthropy, vice president of risk management, vice president of public relations, and treasurer (the meeting was adjourned before the position of secretary and vice president of philanthropy could be determined). Jonathan Williams ’11, a brother of Delta Phi, was elected to the position of vice president of social. Stephen Provost ’12, a brother of Lambda Chi Alpha was elected to the position of vice president of risk management.
