The Fraternity is led by a mix of volunteers and paid staff. To learn more about our leadership, read the sections below and then scroll down and click on the photos to read our leaders’ bios.

The Executive Council (EC) is the elected leadership of the Theta Tau Fraternity. Elected to two-year terms, most Council members have years of experience serving the Fraternity in various other capacities.

The EC consists of nine elected members, the SAC Chair and Exec Director are NOT a part of the Executive Council and do not have a vote, but are normally invited to EC meetings to provide input. The EC is chaired by the Grand Regent.

The Student Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from Theta Tau’s 10 geographic regions and is chaired by a student member who is elected to a two-year term by the Convention. Per Constitution: The Student Advisory Committee will advise the Executive Council in determining the need, appropriateness, relevancy, value, or benefit of matters and policies related to the student membership experience in Theta Tau

National Officers of Theta Tau are volunteers who serve under the National Officer Commitment Form in support of Fraternity operations and the Theta Tau Strategic Plan.

National officers are appointed to their positions by the Executive Council and generally serve for two-year terms. All officers serve without pay, except for the Editor-in-Chief of The Gear who receives a small stipend for their work.

The Central Office Staff are a group of paid professionals, led by the Executive Director, who oversee the day-to-day functions of the Fraternity. They also provide advice and support to the volunteer leadership on a wide range of topics. The Executive Director is serves as a non-voting member of the Executive Council.
