Iota of Chi Phi Alumni Association

June 22, 2020


Dear alumni brothers of Chi Phi,

I write to you today on behalf of the Iota of Chi Phi Alumni Association Board of Trustees to share information that may be of interest to you. Due to the current pandemic, the board held a zoom meeting recently and decided to cancel the 2020 alumni association annual meeting. Current board members and officers have agreed to continue to serve until our next annual meeting. The current group of alumni chapter advisors have also agreed to continue to serve. Peter Mougey I’17 was elected to the board to fill an open position and has agreed to serve as the official university chapter advisor.

The Iota Chapter has been charged by the university with recent infractions of the hazing and alcohol rules. As the chapter is currently under probation by OSU for an alcohol violation (serving a minor a drink in 2018), our expectation is that the chapter will be suspended for some period of time to be determined. The national director of our fraternity has been in direct communication with OSU in this regard. No formal hearing has been held yet due to the pandemic.

The board has also voted to move the date of the next alumni reunion from 2023 to 2024 as this will be the 200th anniversary of Chi Phi. More information on this is to come.

Our Secretary and Treasurer reported that the new alumni website is near completion and should be up and running soon.

As always, we appreciate your continuing financial support of the Iota Chapter through your dues to the Iota of Chi Phi Alumni Association or you tax-deductible contributions to the Iota CEF (Chapter Excellence Fund) through the Chi Phi Educational Trust (or both!!).



Curt Bacon, I’73
