Beyond the 7 highest levels of house leadership outlined in the officers roles/responsibilities, there is a second layer of house leadership that supports the various functions and activities that keep Theta Xi operating like a well oiled machine day in and day out. Each of the positions outlined below are appointed by the Vice President based on prior leadership demonstration, personality strengths, and interests of the individual members.   Once all committee head positions have been filled, the Vice President will assess the needs of each committee and work with each chairmen to fill support positions within each committee such that every active member has a delegated responsibility within a committee. During times of low membership, the Vice President may elect for some chair positions to remain dormant in the interest of supporting roles that have higher value to the Fraternity. Likewise, he also has the ability to create "Special Committees" to execute temporary tasks and projects.
