ΤΕΦ names new Executive Director

Tau Epsilon Phi is happy to announce that after an extensive recruitment and interview process it has hired Tim Smith as our first Executive Director since 2011.

Tim is the current Immediate Past Consul, a position he will be stepping aside from, to take the role of Executive Director. Tim is intimately familiar with our operations, and in many ways, is responsible for much of our recent growth and success.

Tim’s official start day is today, December 21st.

Expansion Update – SUNY Albany

We are excited to announce the recognition of approximately 30 men as an Interest Group of Tau Epsilon Phi at SUNY Albany following preliminary approval by the IFC.

The Alpha Sigma chapter was originally founded in 1986 and initiated 219 men before closing their doors in 1999.

We are anticipating a campus visit as part of fully the IFC recognition process in February, followed by a refounding class new member education program and formal colonization.

Thank you to Jason Berler our Director of Expansion and Chapter Development Jason Berler for your work on this effort, as well as to alumni brothers Cleef Robinson and Aren Paster for stepping up to mentor the new group.
