Because of varying circumstances, not all House Corporations are involved in each of these duties. For example, if the chapter is housed in university facilities, the university would assume many of the duties associated with maintaining the physical plant. This would not, however, relieve the House Corporation of its other responsibilities. It is critically important that the House Corporation insures that all facility duties are being properly handled by either the House Corporation, the alumni, a professional management group, the university, or the chapter.
The links right provide additional and valuable information for house corporations and their officers. The corporation provides the “first line of defense” in oversight of chapter operations and is encouraged to contact the Central Office for any assistance and guidance in fulfilling this role. A number of additional resources are available from our insurance broker Favor & Company. Favor provides liability insurance for all our affiliated units and provides property insurance to most of our housed chapters. Another excellent resource for fraternity related issues is Fraternal Law Partners which has provided legal and tax advice to greek groups for decades.
