Officers and Their Roles

What if the Dean of Students needs to meet with a representative to discuss changes in campus policies? What if the boiler cracks? What if the cook retires? What if a member of the house doesn't pay their dues? What if there's a conflict with another fraternity?  These are all scenarios Theta Xi has faced in past years that require a pre-defined team of leaders to address. That team is called the Executive Board, or Officers.

 The highest level of leadership within the house is typically held by those who are upper-classmen, and have served as committee heads and/or lower level officers in previous years.  It is necessary that these 6 individuals have a strong understanding of the house operation as well as strong interpersonal and leadership skills to manage the rest of the membership.  It is of the highest honor to be elected to an officer position, demonstrating that your peers recognize the strength of leadership skills you have developed here at Theta Xi. 

Exec. Board  Responsibilities

 President:  Serves as senior chapter officer and carries out the multiple responsibilities involved in the leadership of the chapter.  These include goal-setting and evaluation, organizational planning, policy development and implementation, and cooperating with other campus leaders to assure the healthy development of the chapter and of the Greek system.

 Vice President:  In the absence of, or at the discretion of the President, he acts for the President to lead and direct support functions important to the welfare and effectiveness of the chapter.  This includes problem solving, reviewing committee operations, directing committee chairmen, and advising the President on various operations of the chapter.
