INDIANAPOLIS -

Sigma Tau Gamma will Saturday cut the ribbon on its new national headquarters in Indianapolis. The fraternity announced the move in June and says it will also bring its annual leadership training and networking program to Indy beginning in January.

Ten full-time employees have relocated to Indy along with the organization. Jonathan Proehl, president of the Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity Board of Directors, says they expect the number of full-time staff to grow to more than 30 by 2025.

"After months of hard work, I am proud to open the Sigma Tau Gamma Headquarters Building in Indianapolis," said Proehl. "This move marks an era of growth and collaboration for our entire organization as we work towards our vision of building noble generations of men. Relocating to Indianapolis will boost relations with Panhellenic and Interfraternity communities also headquartered in Indianapolis."

The fraternity's annual three-day Webb Academy training and networking program for undergraduate officers will bring more than 500 members to Indianapolis each year. Sigma Tau Gamma says all of the national boards plan to meet in Indy annual as well.

"This is a place where history will be made and recorded for generations," said Chief Executive Officer Steve Latour. "Our new home will serve as a place to gather, learn, and exemplify the fraternity’s nearly 100-year-old ritual. I look forward to seeing what we achieve here to give our undergraduate and alumni members across the nation the best fraternity experience possible."

Sigma Tau Gamma says the new headquarters will also include a dedicated museum to showcase the fraternity's history and preserve artifacts such as the Fireplace where its 17 founding fathers gathered in 1920 to establish the fraternity.

If you’re like most business owners, your answer is something like "I think it's pretty good" or "things seem to be working."
