Grand Council Vacancies

Published on November 25, 2019

On behalf of the entire Grand Council, I have been asked to share that there are currently two member-at-Large (Director) vacancies on the board of directors.

Individuals who are interested in serving should submit a letter of intent (with vision statement) along with a copy of your resume to the nominating committee at The committee will then contact the applicants sometime after the application deadline to discuss next steps. Ultimately, they will make a final recommendation to the Grand Council. The Grand Council will then fill those vacancies.

This is a friendly reminder of why you should consider serving on the Grand Council?

Do you remember “The Bridge Builder?” Tau Epsilon Phi is now a 109 year old organization looking to continue to build upon our rich heritage and our long and prosperous history. While the Fraternity has been through some challenging times in the not too distant past, it has now turned the corner and is beginning to grow in numbers. We are looking to find dedicated and passionate Brothers who are willing to lend their time and efforts to continue building the bridge for those behind us.

In quoting from “The Portals” of Tau Epsilon Phi “It is now your duty, both presently as a candidate and later, we hope, as a brother, to continue by building the bridge for … “A youth whose feet must pass this way, this chasm that has been naught to me, to that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be …”
