District governors are official representatives of Sigma Phi Epsilon appointed by the Fraternity’s National Board of Directors. DGs are the primary liaison between the national Fraternity and local alumni-volunteers.
District governors are responsible for volunteer recruitment and training, as well as ongoing support for the Alumni and Volunteer Corporations in their district. They are solely responsible for appointing and, when necessary, replacing Chapter Counselors and Balanced Man Stewards for each chapter in their district. Additionally, district governors serve as voting members of the Grand Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Read a full description of the district governor role.
New districts went into effect in June 2021. The District Governor Committee, chaired by Joe Langella, Connecticut ’83, made recommendations to the national board of directors to realign districts to better support the needs of today's Alumni and Volunteer Corporations. This change from 26 to 39 districts lowers the DG to AVC ratio and allows for more proactive support from district governors.
