Consuls of ΤΕΦ

The leadership of the National Fraternity has included Brothers from many different backgrounds and fraternal experiences. The men who have served as International Consul, have worked with selfless dedication, often for years, to mentor our Brothers and lead our Fraternity. They are talented, motivated and dedicated individuals. Each has offered their personal time and financial sacrifice for the Good of ΤΕΦ. Their commitment to our principles of Friendship, Chivalry and Service goes above and beyond. It is with great honor that we recognize those who have served in the highest office this fraternity can bestow upon you, that of the Consul’s chair.
