One of the four top Fraternity awards, The George E. Housser Trophy is awarded annually to the top Canadian chapter demonstrating all-round excellence in internal management and chapter operations, campus leadership and campus participation.
The trophy (a Canadian Inuit carving called the Bird Man) was originally presented by the Vancouver Alumni Club, and later rededicated by several Canadian brothers in 1992 in honor of the late George E. Housser (McGill ’06), President of the General Council from 1950-52.
