National UpdateHard Alcohol Banned by the NIC

Pi Kappa Alpha International has announced that hard alcohol will be banned from chapter houses and fraternity events starting September 1, 2019.

As a member of the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), this complies with a resolution passed by the NIC. The NIC is a trade association representing 66 inter/national fraternities, with more than 6100 chapters on 800 campuses.

Each member of the NIC is expected to develop its own policy to be in effect on September 1, 2019, that incorporates the directive of the NIC banning hard alcohol from all common areas of the Chapter House and fraternity events. Certain exceptions do apply. The ban applies to any liquors that have an ABV (alcohol by volume) of more than 15%. Presumably, this would allow beer and wine. In addition, hard alcohol is permitted if served by a “licensed third-party vendor."
