Theta Tau

March 12, 2020

To Brothers in Theta Tau:

As you are no doubt aware we are currently facing one our toughest challenges with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. In response, local governments, colleges, and universities across the country are closing campuses, suspending activities, restricting gatherings, and moving to online classes. There are currently quite a few chapters that have been effected by these decisions and I can only anticipate that countless others will face similar situations in the near future.

In response to these actions, the Executive Council of Theta Tau is strongly recommending that ALL chapters immediately cease new member education activities and initiate all perspective new members within the next seven days. If any chapter feels that it is not prudent to follow this recommendation, I ask that the chapter Regent send me a letter detailing why they are choosing not to follow this guidance, which will be reviewed by the Executive Council.

Also, as a precaution, it has been decided that all remaining Regional Conferences as well as the Habitat for Humanity Alternative Spring Break trip will be cancelled this semester. The Executive Council requests that all chapters cancel plans to travel to these events immediately. We are working with regional conference host chapters to lessen the burden of any sunk financial costs.

At this time, chapters may decide if they will continue to meet in person for the remainder of the semester. If so decided, please take precautions to avoid potential transmission from one person to another. Please refer to CDC resources in formulating such decisions.  

Lastly, I want to mention that the National Convention, scheduled for August 6-9, 2020 in Tampa, Florida, will still be held as of this writing. Convention Registration is open, and it is required that each chapter send a delegate and an alternate. The Executive Council will continue to monitor the situation.  If it is decided to postpone the Convention, appropriate refunds will be issued.

Thank you all for your dedication to Theta Tau and your swift action in accordance with this communication. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Central Office, who will assist in any manner they can. The Central Office will remain open and fully staffed. If that changes, notice will be posted here.
