Developing the Colony
A core group of men is needed when establishing the colony. This core group must consist of men that want to get involved, have strong leadership abilities, strong values, and are willing to take chances. They must be independent and willing to give their time to make sure the fraternity is successful. They must look at themselves as recruiters and the type of man others will want to join in building a fraternity.
This core group can number from 5 to 50 men. At least 5 men are required to request recognition as a colony from Alpha Kappa Lambda. The more men you have at the beginning, the easier the process will be.
