Board of Governors

Introduction to the Office

As Chairman you have the responsibility to ensure the Board runs effectively. You should not feel as if you need to be involved in everything that happens, rather, your role is to facilitate an atmosphere where your body of advisors can effectively fulfill the expectations of their appointment. The most important role you will serve is to act as the connective link between the National Fraternity, through the Domain Director and Leadership Consultant, and the Chapter. You will often times be the only contact on particular issues, therefore, it is important for you to filter that information to the Board and chapter.

  • Act as a Liaison with National Fraternity through the Domain Director, Graduate Council, Resident Council, School Administration, and the House Corporation.
