strategic Plan of action
        Vision Statement

“As members of our Fraternity, we have
 the opportunity to become builders of
 men. Through our active leaders, who
are motivated by pride, we will strive to
  pursue higher levels of achievement
    through scholarship, social, and
moralality by maintaining the honor and
integrity that FarmHouse Fraternity was
                built upon.
          Mission Statement

“Through Brotherhood, We Build the Complete
      Overview of Strategic Plan

    The basis of this strategic plan is to provide
   written and organized objectives and goals in
      important areas of programming for the
fraternity. It is also to provide needed direction in
  the annual change of offices. The information
will be used throughout the year and reviewed on
  a regular basis by the entire house. An annual
 review will be utilized to revise and redirect any
 areas needed. These goals were set by the 2001
                      officer team.
