BOARD OF DIRECTORS

What good is a mission and vision without people to see them through? Our volunteer board of directors provides direction for the Fraternity.

The executive and administrative authority of the Fraternity is vested in the Board of Directors. This volunteer board of members manages the affairs of the Fraternity. Eleven alumni members are elected by the Assembly of Trustees, while two undergraduate members are elected by the Undergraduate Convention.
