History

Established in 1998, NALFO, the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, set out to become the uniting force for Latin-based fraternities and sororities. Latino organizations had developed in different parts of the United States in their early years, and this created difficulties for the organizations to find information on their peer groups in an effort to come together. As a result, two different umbrella organizations evolved, the ConcÌlio Nacional de Hermandades Latinas, which primarily consisted of fraternities and sororities on the east coast, and NALFO which primarily consisted of fraternities and sororities that originated on the west coast. In the winter of 2001 the two groups merged under the NALFO name and made history in developing one umbrella organization for all Latin-based fraternities and sororities


The merger didn’t come without concerns, however. Four fraternities, who had previously been members of the ConcÌlio Nacional de Hermandades Latinas, held back, maintaining membership in the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and did not join with the others under the NALFO name. For several years Lambda Theta Phi, Lambda Sigma Upsilon, Phi Iota Alpha, and Sigma Lambda Beta did not seek membership in NALFO. During this time they were the only four Latino members of the NIC and therefore became the Latino Fraternal Caucus (LFC) within the NIC. As NALFO began to build its identity and legitimize itself as an umbrella organization for Latino fraternities and sororities, the LFC chapters began to give consideration to membership. In October of 2003, the four LFC member chapters joined NALFO. The North-American Interfraternity Conference (or NIC), (formerly known as the National Interfraternity Conference) is an association of collegiate mens fraternities that was formally organized in 1910, although it began on November 27, 1909. ... Lambda Theta Phi was founded on December 1, 1975 at Kean College in Union, New Jersey. ... Lambda Sigma Upsilon (ΛΣΥ) is a Latino oriented Greek letter intercollegiate fraternity founded on April 5, 1979 at Rutgers University New Brunswick, NJ. The 20 founders of LSU were men who believed that the minority population at colleges and universities were not getting the attention they so desperately needed to advance... Phi Iota Alpha (ΦΙΑ), established December 26, 1931, is the oldest Latino fraternity in existence and works to motivate people, develop leaders, and create innovative ways to unite the Latino community. ...
