2016 WILLIAM V. MUSE ALUMNI VOLUNTEER SUMMIT

I am now the Fraternity, For Life.

When you graduated, you continued to learn. After starting your career, you continued to learn new skills. As an alumni of Tau Kappa Epsilon, why would it be any different?

The purpose of the William V. Muse Alumni Volunteer Summit is to help fulfill our Fraternity mission, "to aid men in their mental, moral and social development for life."

Participants of the William V. Muse Alumni Volunteer Summit will learn about current trends in Fraternity life, current and future programs and standards of TKE, and gain skills to better help support our undergraduate chapters, colonies and alumni associations in TKE Nation.

Tau Kappa Epsilon is committed to providing a quality TKE experience well past your college graduation, and in turn, we expect you to commit to continuing to learn about and serve the Fraternity as an alumnus. Seasoned Volunteers to graduating seniors will find value in this series of programs designed specifically for our alumni Fraters.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've enhanced the Triangle Summit this year. Here are the answers you need.

What is enhanced about Triangle Summits?

Responsive to your needs, we’ve aligned the program to exceed expectations. Triangle Summits will re-focus on developing a mix of leadership and management skills necessary for all TKE members. Through a three-point plan, Triangle Summits look to enhance the TKE experience in 1-Membership Recruitment and Development, 2- Alumni Relations, 3- Goal Setting and Achievement.

For those starting their TKE journey, we provide opportunities to learn more about TKE Ritual, recruitment, and membership development programs such as the Blueprint. Want to learn more about what it takes to succeed beyond the classroom? We will provide education on personal finance, selling yourself or your ideas, and unlocking your potential through setting goals. The Triangle Summits will each have a track dedicated to managing risk and promoting healthy habits. We’ve added sessions for those groups with large membership and sessions for those looking for help in growing to become a Top TKE Chapter. Lastly, the Alumni Engagement Team along with the Area Directors will provide training for volunteers as a part of the William V. Muse Alumni Volunteer Summit.

I went to a Province Forum. Why is the Triangle Summit different?

Province Forums are a half-day, drive-in event. Forums focus on the nuts and bolts of running a chapter or colony, specific to the local area. The Triangle Summit is built as the next level. We aim to take those skills and apply them as a leader in your group and your community. Also, Triangle Summits include catered meals such as the Grand Council Luncheon, VIP Networking Reception, two night hotel stay at a premier hotel property and two days of interaction with and instruction of TKE Volunteers, Professional Staff, Grand Council members and other TKE VIPs.

When Should I Arrive?

Registration will open at 4:30 p.m. local time on Friday. Opening events typically don't begin until 7 or 8 p.m. with ritual shortly there after. Feel free to enjoy the city!

I can't attend any longer. Can I get a refund?

Triangle Summit registrations are transferrable, not refundable. We can make name changes on-site without any issues.

What Should I Expect?

Expect to be challenged. Expect to get more from yourself the more you put in. Expect to meet TKE members from chapters and colonies all across TKE Nation. Expect to share what’s working on your campus and on theirs. Expect to have fun, responsibly. The Summit Event Schedule should help you understand what to expect at the reimagined Triangle Summit. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.

VIP Guests to Expect?

You can expect members from both the Grand Council and the TKE Educational Foundation Board. You can also expect TKE Staff and Volunteers. Guest speakers will be part of the festivities and in the past have included Order of the Golden Eagle winners, Past Grand Prytani, Past CEO’s of TKE, Grand Council members, TKE Educational Foundation Board members, and alumni who will share the path to their success & the role TKE has played in it.

Ritual

How to Ritual and a full Ritual will occur on Friday evening. We will have an excellent team to initiate Fraters into our bond and allow us to reconnect with the principles of our fraternity. Think you are the best at ritual in TKE Nation? Inquire with your Area Director to apply to be the ritual team at your Summit.

Attire

Attire for our Friday evening and Saturday morning activities is business casual for the entire weekend. Khakis or dress slacks and a TKE polo for Saturday during the day and ritual attire for Friday night and Saturday night. Please do not wear anything that can be considered offensive. You can be asked to change clothes or subject to removal from the hotel.

HOW TO PAY FOR A SUMMIT

Special Projects

Your Special Projects Fund is money kept by the TKE Educational Foundation to support your chapter’s educational initiatives. Included in those initiatives are registration costs to TKE conferences, such as the Triangle Summits. If you have alumni looking to donate and support their home chapter, utilize Special Projects as an outlet for tax-deductible donations to be made.

When you register for your Summits, your Special Projects Fund balance will appear on the payment page, and you can choose to utilize any or all of the money in that account, provided there is a $200 minimum balance available and is approved by your Board of Advisors Chairman.

Now is the time to start your fundraising campaign to bolster your account.

Chapter Credits

You may have noticed a ‘credits available’ line in your financial summary on the TKE Module (hyperlink). Chapter Credits can be added to your statement for various reasons and once added, they can be applied to outstanding invoices, including Triangle Summit registrations. To utilize chapter credits, select it as a method of payment when you come to the final step in your registration. Our financial team will approve the usage of these credits, and you will have saved yourself and your chapter some money by upholding your financial obligations to the Fraternity.

School Funding

Many colleges and universities set aside money in their student activities budget to support students in campus organizations who attend educational conferences. Don’t wait until December to look into this possibility.

Go to your Fraternity & Sorority Life or Student Government offices today and ask about financial support for the Triangle Summits. Often times, all you have to do is fill out and application with the details of the conference, and your school will help offset some or all of the costs for you and your brothers to attend.

Family Support

With Triangle Summits taking place just a month or two after Christmas, don’t forget to ask your family and friends to help you attend an event that will make you not only a better Frater, but a better man. You’ll find looking to make your chapter/colony, campus and community a better place is usually a cause worthy of financial backing from your parents, grandparents, and others close to you.
