PHILADELPHIA – Theta Tau is pleased to announce a reshuffle of staffing responsibilities within the Central Office.

Effective Friday, February 25, 2022, Ernestine Bethea was promoted to the position of Director of Operations.  In this new role, Ernestine will take on new responsibilities in the Health & Safety space, as well as taking over our social media presence.  She will continue to manage the Central Office’s inbound communications, invoicing, accounts payable, membership record updates and chapter CMT support.  Prior to this promotion, Ernestine was our Office Manager, a position she took up when she joined the Central Office in March of 2020.

Also effective February 25, Sunny Han moved into the position of Director of Programming.  Sunny will continue to manage email communications and the website, but will focus primarily on our in-person and virtual programming.  Prior to this change in title, Sunny was the Programming & Communications Coordinator, a position they held since coming to work for Theta Tau in February of 2020.

Jennifer Kreiman will continue in her current role as Director of Chapter Services and will be able to refocus on preventative programming and providing greater service and support to our chapters, as well as new initiatives, with the added assistance from Ernestine in the Health & Safety space.

“An organization is only as good as its people,” said Executive Director Jim Gaffney.  “I’m proud of the team we’ve assembled and believe we are better-positioned than ever to achieve the strategic goals identified by the Convention and the Executive Council.”
