What Ideas/Resources Can I Use To Learn Ways to Help?

The Offices of the Grand Chapter is actively working on building our list of ideas on ways to help and resources to help you through the coronavirus pandemic as well as prepare for both summer and fall. Below are the places you can find this content.

View the Black Book

Tau Kappa Epsilon’s International Constitution and Bylaws can be found in The Black Book. Chapters and colonies may request a copy of the document for free. Executive board members are expected to have a thorough understanding of the content associated in the publication, although there is no test to analyze member comprehension.

There are no secret or sensitive pieces of information contained in this book. It’s recommended every member take the opportunity to read the entirety of The Black Book to ensure a complete understanding of the Fraternity’s structure, colony and chapter requirements, and membership criteria. Unlike The Black Book, sensitive information regarding the Fraternity’s ritual and secrets can be found in The Silver Book.

Changes to The Black Book are made every other year during the Fraternity’s conclave, which is held during odd-numbered years. The entirety of this publication can be found for general use using the link below.
