LEBANON, TN – The Grand Council of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International and the Board of Trustees for the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation are proud to announce a new staff sharing agreement under new Executive Director Jonathan Frost (UMSL ’02). As part of this agreement, the organizations will share the services, time, and efforts of the Executive Office. This monumental collaboration will go into effect once the final agreement is signed. The Fraternity has engaged the services of Fraternal Law to finalize the agreement.
ED Frost will oversee the day-to-day operations of both organizations, allowing the Fraternity and Educational Foundation to work toward a unified strategy for the advancement of the Fraternity. The Grand Council and Board of Trustees will remain separate bodies as will the Fraternity and the Foundation.
“I am very excited about the business efficiency and cost savings that this brings to both the Fraternity and the Educational Foundation,” said Grand Sage Steve Lawler (Iowa ’82). “Having one staff on the road advising chapters and cultivating area alumni just makes good sense. A shared Executive Director for both organizations will be a huge plus for strategic planning and communication. Thanks to both boards for making this a reality.”
Educational Foundation Chairman Dr. Jay Joern (Missouri ’72) remarked, “The Sigma Pi Educational Foundation is very pleased with the historic move to jointly share an Executive Director with the Fraternity. This will allow the Fraternity and the Educational Foundation to better coordinate and communicate with one another, while also being more efficient and cost effective for both organizations.”
