Fraternities Provide Many Leadership Opportunities for Members

An engineering professional currently working at Panacea Technologies, Jacob Newberger is an automation validation engineer. While pursuing studies at Pennsylvania State University, Jacob Newberger held the position of president of his fraternity, Alpha Epsilon Pi. For many individuals, leading a fraternity is an excellent way to develop leadership skills.

Those who want to take on fraternity leadership roles should express their desire to other members. In addition, prospective leaders should demonstrate their commitment to the organization by arriving on time for meetings and completing any assigned tasks. Since many fraternities offer multiple ways to become involved, members can take on smaller roles, such as coordinating a weekend activity, to demonstrate their skills and prepare themselves for chapter-wide leadership roles.

Statistics show that participating in a fraternity prepares individuals for leadership and success in the future. Approximately 85 percent of Fortune 500 executives and 85 percent of Supreme Court Justices since 1910 have belonged to a fraternity. In addition, more than 70 percent of those listed in Who’s Who in America were fraternity members.
