How to Update Your Officers and ADvisors

Chapters will maintain their officer and advisors lists with IHQ through the DU Portal. It is important to maintain these lists on an ongoing basis so the correct individuals receive admin rights to perform certain functions within the DU Portal, and so that the current officers and advisors receive important communication from the International Fraternity.

NOTE: Everyone in your chapter will be able to view the chapter’s “Roles” and “Roster,” but only select individuals have administrative rights through the DU Portal to make updates. These people are: Chapter President, VP Finance, VP Administration, VP Member Education, VP Recruitment, Chapter Advisor, VP Finance Advisor, and House Corporation President.

  1. Log into the DU Portal at
  2. At the top right of your screen, there should be a button with a house icon and with your chapter name. Click on that to access your chapter dashboard.
  3. Click on the “Roles” icon.
  4. By default, it will show the chapter’s Executive Board officers. To view advisors or alumni chapter leaders, select the “Role Lists” button to the right of the search bar.
  5. To change the roles of the existing officers/advisors/volunteers, click on the settings button (three dots) next to their information. This will provide you with a few options.
    • Edit Term Dates – This will allow you to change the start date for the person in the role and add an end date. When you add an end date, it will remove that individual from that officer role.
    • Add Role Assignment – This will let you add an additional role to the individual. For example, it is very possible that one person serves in multiple advisor roles.
    • End Role Assignment – This will end the person’s role in that position. Replace Role Assignment – This will end the person’s role in that position.
  6. To add a new officer/advisor/volunteer, select the “Add Role” button at the top right of the screen. In the “Contact” field, search for the individual who will be in the role. Use the “Role” dropdown to select their role. Add a Begin Date, then click “Assign Role.”
    • Do not add an End Date if this person is a current officer/advisor/volunteer. Adding an End Date will mark them as no longer serving in the role.

The list of roles that appear in the DU Portal are based on the roles that IHQ tracks/logs in its member database. Some chapters may have more or fewer roles based on chapter size and needs, and that is okay. Ideally, chapters are using the Executive Board officer names as listed in the International Fraternity’s Constitution & By-laws. If not, please select the role that best matches your officer names (example: Secretary and Vice President of Administration).
