The new founding fathers can be from any class year. They do not have to be freshmen.

Ultimately, the goal is to have the 5 advisory positions filled in time to attend the convention, August 4 - 7 in Scottsdale, AZ. The convention fee is covered by the general fraternity. The advisor trainees incur travel expenses and a discounted lodging rate.

The 5 advisory positions are the minimum requirement. We may split duties and add additional advisor positions to meet our needs and situation. Other advisor positions that we could fill:

1. Leadership development advisor
2. Parent's association advisor
3. Faculty advisor

The General Fraternity will revise the dates in our recolonization manual for a Spring 2006 recolonization (the dates show fall 05 now) to begin in the 3rd week of January 2006.  The anticipated move in for the new founding father actives is fall 2006.
