New National Officers Appointed

by | Dec 14, 2020

MIAMI – The Theta Tau Professional Engineering Fraternity is pleased to announce the appointment of four new officers to the Executive Council (board of directors) and ten new National Officer appointments.

Executive Council members are elected by the membership at our biennial National Convention, whereas National Officers are appointed by the Council.  Due to the postponement of the 2020 Convention, two Executive Council members and a number of National Officers chose to retire rather than extend their terms of office for an extra year.  Per Fraternal law, the Executive Council moved to fill these vacancies earlier in this fall.

Keep reading below to learn more about our new officers. The full listing of the National Leadership can be found on the National Officers page.
