The Fraternity is always seeking volunteers committed to furthering the purpose of Theta Tau: to develop and maintain a high standard of professional interest among its members, and to unite them in a strong bond of fraternal fellowship. Theta Tau appreciates and admires the unique talents and diverse experiences of our members — you too can be a helpful brother by volunteering and contributing your talents and experiences.

Opportunities abound at a variety of time and travel commitments, and are not limited to the roles listed on this page. Volunteers currently serve as chapter advisers, on national committees, toward specific projects, or as National Officers. Whether you have one hour a month or one hour a day, we can benefit from teaming up. It doesn’t take much time to make an impact on future generations of Theta Tau and members of our professions. It does take the efforts of many brothers to support thousands of student members and alumni and to meet our goal of engineering leaders for service, profession, and brotherhood.

Why Volunteer?

  • Encourage engineering careers while developing your own skills;
  • Build a lifelong professional network;
  • Shape the future of STEM and other industries;
  • Uphold the values and amplify the impact of the incredible organization you’ve joined.

The Executive Council

The Executive Council is the Board of Directors of the Fraternity.  Elected by the Convention to two-year terms, members of the Council sets the strategic direction of the Fraternity, establishes policy, addresses matters of member misconduct and supervise the Executive Director in his management of the day-to-day affairs of the Fraternity.  Applications to serve on the Executive Council open in the Spring preceding a National Convention.  Any alumni member is eligible to stand for election; only members with at least one full term on the Council may stand for election as Grand Regent (National President.)  To learn more about the Executive Council, visit our “leadership” page.

National Officers

National Officers are appointed officers who hold certain powers, privileges and responsibilities within the Fraternity. National officers, or NatOffs for short, typically serve two-year terms, from Convention to Convention and are appointed by the Executive Council. Descriptions of these positions linked or referenced below outline some expectations and qualifications for each office.

The following National Officer positions are designed by the PPM.  If there is a position description linked, they are available for application:

National Volunteers

National Volunteers support the work of the National Officers, Executive Council and Central Office Staff.  National Volunteers serve on committees, advise certain chapters, lead working groups and sometimes take on leadership of projects.  Volunteers positions come with a variety of time commitments, from short-term appointments that only require a few hours a month to longer-term appointments or more time-intensive projects.  There are literally dozens of positions, so if you have any time at all to give, reach out to volunteer@thetatau.org to learn more.
