Mitchell Chapter Standards 2014-2015

With a new academic year comes a new year of the Mitchell Chapter Standards Program.  Click here for the program description and requirements and be sure to review them with your Chapter.  You can begin submitting items for your 2014-2015 MCS Report through on September 15th.  As always, you can see what is due monthly in the Reminders for This Month section (left column) in every Chapter Update.

Updated New Member Process

The New Member process has gotten a face lift this summer and will hopefully be more streamlined for our Chapters as they recruit new men into our prestigious organization.  Please take a look and familiarize yourself with the updated New Member Registration process.  As usual, this form and the New Member Fee are due to International Headquarters at the start of the Pillars program.  

Skull Sessions (now in its 24th edition) are now free as long as the New Member Fee is paid.  Please have your Alpha or Iota submit an order to  If your Chapter orders books and pins prior to taking in new members, your Chapter will be charged immediately for shipping and an invoice for books and pins will be due in 30 days.  As new members pay their fees, the invoice will be credited and the Chapter will not owe for the materials.

The Pillars New Member Education Program has been recently updated to coincide with the 24th Edition of Skull Sessions.  Below you will find the newest manual and documents related to the Pillars Program.
In addition, a signed Membership Agreement and the Initiation Fee are due two weeks prior to Initiation.

As mentioned in the previous Grand Chapter Update, the 97th Grand Chapter passed a number of amendments to the Phi Kappa Sigma Constitution and Acts.  Click here for an updated version for your Chapter.
