OPEN!

Welcome to the ZIP Website!

In 1889 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, five freshmen decided to form a fraternity to place their "friendship on a more firm and lasting basis." Since that time our numbers have grown to more than 20,000 and ZIPs are represented on 18 campuses in the United States and Canada. We truly are an International Professional Fraternity.

The ZIPs are well known for their College and Alumni Chapter functions and community involvement to promote dental health and goodwill. Our Fraternity has progressed for more than 125 years because of its high ideals and worthy purposes to give each member a richer life and by living up to its simple motto:

"Hospitality is the Life of Friendship."

XI PSI PHI SUPREME CHAPTER

BOARD OF DIRECTORS & SUPREME ASSEMBLY MEETING

         PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS delivered on

     Saturday, March 22, 2014  

Supreme Chapter Board of Directors Meeting

        Marine's Memorial Club & Hotel, San Francisco, California

First, I would like to thank all of the Board of Directors honored past Supreme Presidents, student representatives and guests for attending this installation of Officers and Board of Directors of the Supreme Chapter of Xi Psi Phi International Dental Fraternity.  I would like to recognize and thank Anne-Lise and Dan Fink and the loyal Iota Chapter alumni who have graciously welcomed the Supreme Chapter to this beautiful city - San Francisco!  The hospitality of our many California ZIP members is gratefully appreciated and the Supreme Chapter is extremely proud to be here to share in the FRIENDSHIP shown by Iota Alumni Chapter.

The journey of life is often a very interesting road -- marked by twists, turns and a very winding path -- and we have no idea where we will end up!  When I was asked to interview at SIU School of Dental Medicine in 1985, little did I know it would be with Dr. Keith Dickey -- who turned out to be from my hometown - South Bend, Indiana and that his mother was actually my brother's fourth grade teacher.  This initial contact with the dental profession has led to my enduring FRIENDSHIP with Keith and my membership in Xi Psi Phi - which has brought me here today.

During the past year I have had the opportunity to attend the American Dental Interfraternity Council meeting as well as the ZIP HOSPITALITY Receptions at the ADA meeting in New Orleans as well as the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.  Meeting Xi Psi Phi members from around the dental community has been one of the highlights of my experience with the Supreme Chapter.  It is an honor to represent the Supreme Chapter at these events and I look forward to seeing many of you at these annual receptions in the upcoming year.

I have chosen the word LEADERSHIP as my biennial password and presidential platform.  Leadership is the power or ability to lead or influence other people towards an organizational goal.   Along with persistence, this will help fuel my two goals for Xi Psi Phi during my tenure in office:  1) to maintain or increase the membership of the College Chapter level and 2) to significantly increase and encourage the number of dues paying alumni members.  The second goal for financial security will need to be discussed by all members of the Board of Directors so we may produce some solutions to this eminent problem.

As we enter this -- our Fraternity's 125 anniversary year -- I salute the LEADERS from the past who surround us today:  Drs. Bonomo, Dickey, Doyle, Hall, Haynes, Jones, Sebelius, Tietz, Wier and Yip.  I challenge these NEW LEADERS just installed:  Drs. Apolito, Gurrola, Fink, Chu, Niewald, Carvalho and Covington -- to demonstrate untiring devotion to OUR Fraternity - God bless XI PSI PHI for another 125 years!

Fraternally,

Randy A. Parmlee, Supreme President

Beta Mu Chapter, 1990
