|Cornerstone Housing Program|
Beta Theta Pi promotes chapter housing that is safe, attractive and creates an environment that supports academic success and the Men of Principle Initiative. To that end, the Cornerstone Housing Program provides property insurance, education, support and joint purchasing power to Beta’s house corporations, alumni associations and local volunteers.
Cornerstone’s signature event is the Housing Summit, held each summer in conjunction with the General Convention. Expert speakers and Beta volunteers present two days of workshops on insurance, risk management, nonprofit and tax law and property management. The Housing Summit is open to all local house corporation volunteers; registration is free if you are part of the Cornerstone program.
The Cornerstone Housing Summit takes place every summer in conjunction with General Convention. Two days of workshops feature experts in insurance, fundraising, risk management, tax and nonprofit law, and property management. All house corporation volunteers are invited to attend. Information about the next Cornerstone Housing Summit will be available on the website in early 2013.
