Application for Grand Council

Applications will be accepted thru November 15, 2023.

The Grand Council serves as the Board of Directors for Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity, Inc. The Grand Council is holding a special election to fill two vacancies and will serve until the next Grand Chapter scheduled for October 2024. Those interested in serving on the Grand Council are encouraged to submit their name for consideration to the nominations committee.

Members of the Grand Council should expect to put in 2-3 hours per week in service to the Fraternity. Article V and Article VI of the TEΦ Constitution has further information and qualifications on serving as a member of the board of directors. The latest version of the TEΦ Constitution can also be found on the TEΦ Governance page. Feel free to contact any current member of the Grand Council if you have questions about serving.

Candidates for consideration on serving on the Grand Council shall submit an application and agree to provide the following prior to being interviewed by the Grand Council:

  1. A signed non-disclosure statement.
  2. A signed Conflict of Interest form.
  3. Submit to a background check.
  4. Provide a declaration of understanding that Grand Council members, in most cases, are expected to fund their own travel to Grand Council meetings when appropriate. Note the Grand Council is proposing a change in legislation which would allow for more electronic participation, but even if that passes some travel will still be expected.
  5. Any other documentation that the nominating committee may deem necessary.

Footnote – Regarding background checks – Certain states require that an organization that works with children under the age of 18 must submit all board members and staff to a background check for the safety of the children and for the liability of the organization.  Since some college students start college prior to their 18th birthday and Tau Epsilon Phi is active in multiple states, the Grand Council has determined that this requirement is prudent for the welfare of the organization and its membership.
