Certain situations require a chapter request a dispensation to do something that is contrary to the Constitution and Statutes. This requires written permission in advance from your Regional Team who can grant it.
The chapter must vote to approve the request. Then a dispensation form, available on the Resource Library, must be signed by AAC can be sent by the Chapter President to the appropriate Regional Team member. When approved, the dispensation form will be returned to the Chapter President. Dispensation begins only upon receipt of the endorsed dispensation form from the appropriate Pi Beta Phi officer. Instructions and samples may be found in: Constitution and Statutes, Policy and Position Statements and Bylaws and Dispensation.When a CHC is requesting dispensation, they will email FHC at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit the dispensation. FHC will then be in consultation with the Regional Team, who will proceed with the approval/denial of dispensation.
