Phi Delta Theta is excited to announce several General Headquarters staff transitions to help improve support and grow its chapters through tactics prescribed within the Phi Delt 2020 strategic plan.
Effective immediately, Dylan Berg has been named Director of Chapter Services, Myra Duritsch as Chapter Support Coordinator, and Jim Rosencrans as Director of Growth.
Dylan Berg – Director of Chapter Services
Dylan has been at GHQ for nearly four years, previously serving in the role of Colony Development Specialist, Leadership Programming Coordinator, and Chapter Services Coordinator and has been instrumental in the organization’s continued trajectory towards its Phi Delt 2020 strategic plan. Through his past roles, Brother Berg enhanced colony education programming, increased Phi Delta Theta’s usage of data and assessment at conferences and within numerous fraternity programs, strengthened the Leadership Consultant training program to include a focus on assessing organizational development and culture, and led the Fraternity’s amnesty program.
In his new role as Director of Chapter Services, Brother Berg will execute strategies that build strong chapters with great alumni support through the management and coaching of leadership consultants, volunteers, and other staff. He also serves on the Phi Delt 2030 Planning Committee.
Brother Berg, a native of Park River, North Dakota, is a graduate of the University of North Dakota, where he studied Entrepreneurship, Management, and Student Affairs. He was a recipient of the campus’ outstanding student leader award four times and is a Re-Founding Father and former vice-president of the North Dakota Alpha Chapter.
“I’m thrilled to work in this new capacity at the General Headquarters. The intentional engagement of our staff, volunteers, university partners, and undergraduate members is pivotal to our success as we complete Phi Delt 2020 and start Phi Delt 2030. I’m fortunate to work with an outstanding and extremely capable team that will help move Phi Delta Theta Onward into 2030,” said Berg.
Myra Duritsch – Chapter Support Coordinator
Also serving the organization for the last four years as a valued member of the Chapter Services Team, Myra Duritsch will assume the role of Chapter Support Coordinator leading increased volunteer, university, and chapter support activities to meet the heightened needs of Phi Delta Theta chapters today.
A career nonprofit and education professional, Myra graduated from Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis in 2010 with a degree in sports management and business. Myra and her husband, Tony, currently live in Liberty, Indiana with their two children, Tinley and Tate and their dog, Ari.
“I am excited for this opportunity and look forward to working further with our undergraduates and volunteers,” said Duritsch.
Jim Rosencrans – Director of Growth
Brother Rosencrans has served in the roles of Leadership Consultant, Associate Director of Chapter Services, and most recently Growth Coordinator. As Growth Coordinator, some of his greatest accomplishments consisted of laying the foundation for the success of the Recruitment Coaching Program, releasing recruitment video content focused on teaching potential new members how to properly prepare for recruitment, and coaching the Fraternity’s Expansion Consultants.
In his new role as Director of Growth, Jim is tasked with assisting in all membership growth and Chapter Advisory Board related strategies outlined in Phi Delt 2020. The overriding mission of this role is to provide strategic recruitment support and volunteer development to chapters that may be failing in their chapter operations and/or to meet the standards of the Minimum Standards Program, which should result in positive growth in the organization’s average chapter size and volunteer roster.
Jim is a member of the Pennsylvania Lambda Chapter and a graduate of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania where he studied criminology and sociology. As an undergraduate, he had the opportunity to become a Founding Father of the Pennsylvania Lambda Chapter of Phi Delta Theta, where he served as a Recruitment Chairman for several semesters. Jim currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“I am excited to continue to grow our organization in this new capacity with the growth and expansion team. Our team is eager to finish Phi Delt 2020 strong and lay a robust foundation of growth into 2030.”
