As a member of new fraternity, we chartered last fall, we have had a difficult time with just about everything. There has been no guidance established, when I joined 3 years ago we only had 9 guys, so we've been lost and struggled to figure out how to succeed. Like most college aged men, everyone member of our chapter believes that they have the answers to success. After reading this book, we really do have the answers to success. This past summer I made the decision to purchase the book. It has been an incredible tool for me and my fraternity. We have literally improved in every aspect as a brotherhood. For the last two years, our chapter has been divided into 2-3 groups all of which have different goals for the fraternity, and different visions of what our chapter can be. Implementing the things that we've learned from this book got all the brothers on the same page. We are all working towards a common goal now. Just a few examples of our success:

-We increased our attendance at parties from 200-300 people to over 1200 people, by following the steps laid out in his book.

-Having successful parties has helped out a ton with recruitment, but running our rush week like the book lays out helped drastically. For the past 3 years we have generally gotten 15-25 guys throughout the entire year. This fall semester alone we've gotten 22 guys, with a second rush week planned to start today.

-Another problem the book helped us resolve has been retention. At the end of each year, we are lucky if we still have 10 of our original 15-25 new members around. This year, we have put together the new member program laid out in the book, and we have yet to have a new member miss a single meeting or event.

In my opinion, The Fraternity Leader should be read by every fraternal member. The amount of knowledge and detail this book contains makes it absolutely the best book to bring a struggling fraternity to success or take a successful fraternity and make it even better. Patrick Daily touches on all of key issues such as how to recruit properly, how to overcome financial issues, how to fundraiser thousands of dollars, how to effectively run a New Member program, how to build relations and hold great socials with sororities, etc.. This book was an easy read that inspired me to make my fraternity the best it can be. I thought it was so influential that I will be purchasing a copy for each new member of eboard for this upcoming spring semester. I highly suggest purchasing and reading this book.

we all know the gist of going about our chapter operations, but often the best answer we give is "its always been that way" or "that's how it is". TFL redefines those traditions by giving a more practical and business-like approach to increasing numbers, results, and good old fashion advice

This is a great book for students and advisors. I purchase it as an e book and really enjoy sharing components with th group I advise. This book really great with the examples and experiences. Our students obviously often need an outside perspective and someone experienced to give them guidance. It's an easy read and great advise! Highly recommend for Greek leadership.

In this book, Pat Daley offers a multitude of tips and resources to help fraternity implement positive change in their home chapters. Drawing from an impressive undergraduate experience (that had both highs and lows), The Fraternity Leader is something that any fraternity man wishing to become a successful fraternity leader must read.
One area of strength of this book is its focus on Recruitment - the lifeline of every chapter. It is both the first chapter and one of the most substantive chapters of the book, providing necessary skills for any chapter to recruit. The Fraternity Leader equips members with responses to some of the major hesitations that potential new members have - cost, safety, etc. Being able to implement these skills will almost undoubtedly increase a chapter's recruitment efforts.
With a strong transition into the importance of a fun new member education program, The Fraternity Leader addresses another absolutely crucial aspect of a fraternity. In stressing a safe and hazing-free new member program, The Fraternity Leader takes a step in helping fraternity men lead their chapters back to the intent of the founders of fraternity.
If you notice that things in your chapter need to change and you think you want to take a stand and change them, then reading The Fraternity Leader will help you do that. Leadership in fraternity and implementing change is not easy, but reading this book is a good first step.

I was skeptical about the information in this book the first time I heard about it. But I'm glad I purchased because it completely changed my outlook on fraternity leadership. If you are looking to improve your Greek organization, Pat is the man to give you exactly what you need to know - no fluff or filler. I look forward to reading this book many, many times in the future.

One of the best reads for me as I was running for Fraternity President of my chapter. I may have not won last year when I ordered it, but through continued reading of this and the other Patrick Daley book, I just won chapter President. Contains a lot of information about rushing new members, financials help, fundraising ideas, how to run for office, and many other topics. Thanks Patrick!
