The 10% Challenge was introduced in 2006 at the 62nd Grand Chapter to give our collegiate chapters ownership in the growth of the Fraternity. The Challenge is posed to you: increase the number of men pledged and initiated into your chapter by 10% from the previous year. The 10% Challenge is by choice; only those chapters accepting the challenge are able to participate.
