Header Flourish 2

The MJ Sorority Housing Forum is intended to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas and best practices among inter/national sorority and fraternity property leaders.

Now, more than ever, our collegiate members, volunteers, and employees need guidance and support during these challenging times, and their fraternal facilities can serve as a haven from the stresses they may be facing on campus.

Given the impact of the pandemic and MJ’s mission to protect individuals, we have developed an ongoing educational series, Housing Forum on the Road. We plan to host property-related risk management conversations every month on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 1-2PM ET.

Stay tuned to this page for the agenda of topics and feel free to contact us with your programming suggestions.
