RLC 2018 Grand Council Attendees

RLC 2018 Grand Council Attendees

The Regional Leadership Conferences are your best opportunity as a Teke to spend time with some of the Fraternity’s most valuable and influential alumni. Dozens of years of volunteer experience, a full contingent of TKE professional staff members – including your Chief Executive Officer – and members of your Grand Council will all be on hand at each RLC.

And while we would love to hear your best TKE questions and suggestions to improve the Fraternity, we also want you to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and professional experience of our alumni. Here is a look at the Grand Council members who will be in attendance at each RLC and how they can help you be a better Teke and a better man.
