Sec. 10.4 of the Fraternity Policy Manual

 

No member or Chapter of the Fraternity, acting on behalf of the Fraternity, shall enter into any contractual agreement which provides that any entity is given sole and exclusive rights to provide certain benefits or services to Fraternity members or whereby only a limited number or certain group of members receive benefits or services to the exclusion of or detriment to other members.
 
Prior to execution, the International Executive Board (IEB) shall review and ratify, approve, or reject, any and all contracts between any member or Chapter of the Fraternity, acting on behalf of the Fraternity, and any entity to ensure that the entity is not being given sole and exclusive rights to provide certain benefits or services to Fraternity members or whereby only a limited number or certain group of members receive benefits or services to the exclusion of or detriment to other members.
 
This policy shall apply to all District Justices as well as any individual acting on behalf of any Pre-Law, Law or Alumni Chapter of the Fraternity, including the Chapter’s duly elected officers or representatives.
 
It shall be the responsibility of any member of the Fraternity aware of any proposed exclusive contractual agreement to bring such proposal to the notice of the IEB for approval prior to entering into any such agreement. Notice shall be sufficient if a draft of the proposal is submitted to the International Executive Office to disseminate to the IEB members. It shall be the responsibility of the IEB to approve or reject, by majority vote, any such proposal within sixty (60) days of receiving notice. The failure by any individual to provide sufficient notice to the IEB shall automatically be construed as a rejection of said proposal.
 
Any agreement between any member or Chapter of the Fraternity, acting on behalf of the Fraternity, which has been entered into and remains in full force and effect as of the date of this policy, and which provides benefits or services of any kind to any of the Fraternity’s members, shall be submitted to the IEB for proper approval, ratification or rejection pursuant to the procedure and terms of this policy, within ninety (90) days after the effective date of this policy.
