But do the presenters know they aren't following normal protocol? Could it be the GL officer is fudging the numbers?

And why would the regional NPC rep not be all over this like a frog on a junebug? Something makes me want to say this dog don't hunt.

There are no schools that match this description in Irish Pipes thread. There are no schools that have added 3 NPC chapters in 2 years.... This makes me question the validity of the information being presented, or if all the groups are actually NPC groups rather than local or other groups that participate in the school cpc?

My post wasn't a response to your post. I was posting independently from what you said. I wanted to know if National Panhellenic Council "headquarters" can reprimand any [inter]national member GLO for presenting at a campus that didn't follow the guidelines. My post #18 on the previous page quotes the MOI and it appears that member GLOs would have gotten the notice for the expansion opportunity from NPC HQ and not the Greek Life director.

No,NPC cannot officially reprimand it's members. And yes, the GL office should have followed the procedure but supposedly did not.

I, too, have wondered about this thread since its inception. There is only one campus I can think of with anything remotely similar as far as descriptions as given by the OP. For the sake of the OPs privacy I will not mention which campus I'm thinking of, but it had multiple locals that became NPCs and IDK if additional locals are desiring NPC colonization and if so whether if those local groups are being very particular (with the greek life officer's generous assistance) about whom they invite to present.

I'm sorry I haven't responded earlier... I couldn't log onto this site.

To those of you who question the veracity of my situation, I invite you to send me a pm and I will happily tell you what campus I represent.

Something that I learned from reading threads on this forum is that you never know who is lurking. Because of that, some minor details were changed to protect my chapter's anonymity. I hope you can respect that.

It is difficult to offer sound advice when one is not privy to complete/correct/true information.

Doesn't NPC normally announce when a campus is open for expansion? I'd think any NPC group would be very suspicious if a request for a packet came from the school, but NPC had not announced the campus was open.

I believe the Greek Life Advisor cherry picked who was going to present after the groups sent packets, not who 'was sent' packets, because NPC orgs SEND the packets, they don't RECEIVE them. I think if they continue to convey information to their NPC Delegate and the Area Advisor, word will spread among the NPCs and people will not want to open new chapters there. Nobody wants to use the resources it takes to start a new chapter without knowing they will have a decent size chapter.

^^^ Amen to that. NPC groups are savvy enough to ask for numbers and figure out whether an opportunity is high-risk.

AND, Hi AGDee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't be a stranger!
