Working with the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices staff

This is one of the easiest areas in which to avoid problems. Your Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices really asks very little of chapters. All you have to do is stay in good communication, submit the proper information and forms that they require, abide by the appropriate policies, and stay up-to-date in fees and payments, and you'll be in great shape. Almost all information you need is available at [http://link.phikappatau.org], but if you are having trouble finding information, resources, forms, etc please contact the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices, never be afraid to ask.

Be aware of the services that are available to you from the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices and use them. They can provide you with alumni lists, Phi Kappa Tau programs, and any number of other services that can make your life just a bit less chaotic. You also have regional and national programming and events for leadership development and member education. Try to always have a good showing at those events and make an effort to be visible. The Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices will be impressed by your enthusiasm for bettering your chapter. Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity also has a number of chapter awards and recognitions; many of these are based on the information you provide to the Ewing T. Boles Executive Offices.

Make sure that when Fraternity officers or staff members like Leadership Consultants visit, you are both prepared and hospitable. The brothers who are hired as staff like Leadership Consultants and have been elected to Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity National Office like National Councilor are men who have been very active in their own chapters as leaders and who have shown a strong commitment to serving their brothers.

The staff and many national volunteers are trained in areas of chapter operation and are familiar with the many resources and services that the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity can provide. They are professionals at analyzing chapters and offering help and assistance in making your chapter as strong as it can be. To ignore them or choose not to take advantage of their knowledge and training is to waste Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity’s time and money that has been spent to provide this service to you. You pay the member services fee each semester. Shouldn't you get your money's worth?
