At General Assembly, 40 years ago, Executive Vice
President George Spasyk introduced a revolutionary new
idea to the fraternal world: associate membership. This
change, as Spasyk concluded, was probably one of the
most significant developments in the history of Lambda
Chi Alpha. Through associate membership, new members
were to be treated as equals with the same rights and
rules as all brothers.
Today, Lambda Chi Alpha remains committed to ensuring
that all chapters are initiating the associate member
program for all new members. Forty years of associate
membership has set Lambda Chi Alpha apart from any
other fraternity and put young men on the fast track to
becoming strong, honest leaders.
