Partnership with Meetup.com Facilitates
Chi Phi Alumni Events Worldwide!
Chi Phi Fraternity’s recent partnership with New York based Meetup.com has opened the door to the most innovative alumni services program in recent Chi Phi history. Free to our members, this program has potential to significantly increase the success of Chi Phi Clubs and Alumni Associations, bring thousands of members together around the world, and continue to provide even more benefits of membership to Chi Phi Fraternity’s 33,000 living alumni members.
The Chi Phi Meetup program exists to help cultivate the professional, social, and fraternal bonds among Chi Phi members of all ages living in major metropolitan areas. It is designed to help alumni meet other Chi Phis, develop professional networks, and socialize with their Brothers.
Meet the local coordinators!
What are Meetups? The International Chi Phi Meetup Day is one of Chi Phi’s newest initiatives. It is designed to bring alumni back into the fold, provide professional and social outlets for alumni members, and continue to provide benefits of membership to Chi Phi’s 33,000 alumni members. Meetups are monthly alumni events. They take place at local venues where local Brothers can meet, socialize, and even cultivate Chi Phi Clubs or Alumni Associations.
Why should you participate? To meet and socialize with your Chi Phi Brothers! Have you just moved to a new city? Have you just graduated? Are you trying to find a job? Need for a social outlet? Meetups exist to provide exactly those opportunities!
What do you have to do? Not much at all. Go to chiphi.meetup.com Sign up by entering some limited information (including your email address) and you’ll be on your way. Once a month Meetup.com will send you an email asking you to vote for your favorite of the venue choices. Once one has been decided upon, they’ll notify you and ask you to RSVP (whether you intend to attend or not). Then all you’ve got to do is show up! It’s that easy!
Will I know anyone there? You may or you may not! You may run into a pledge Brother, a fellow member from your Chapter, or someone you recall from your involvement in the Fraternity years ago! Then again, you may not know anyone there, yet. There may be dozens of Brothers you have not yet met friends that are only an introduction away. The beauty of the Meetup program is that it brings like-minded people together just like Chi Phi!
Are the Meetups Online? No. Meetups are person-to-person, face-to-face events. They will take place at local restaurants, cafés, bars, or other such venues. You even get to help pick the venues!
Where will the Meetups be? Meetup.com (in coordination with your local Chi Phi Meetup Coordinator) will provide three options for a venue several weeks prior to the event. Your job will be to vote for your favorite and to suggest venues to your Meetup coordinator. You’ll also get an email telling you which site received the most votes, directions to the venue, and a request for your RSVP.
Does it cost anything? Absolutely not. This program is completely free. All you have to do is show up, participate, and tell other Chi Phis about it. Bring a friend, in fact!
How do you get involved? If you would like to participate, follow these simple steps:
- Visit http://chiphi.meetup.com and sign up.
- Respond to the Meetup.com email requesting you to vote.
- RSVP to attend.
- Show up and bring a friend!
