The Mission of TKE Is More Critical Than Ever
Health and Safety is of utmost importance to the International Headquarters. We hope everyone is healthy and staying safe during this pandemic.
During this time, our mission to "aid men in their mental, moral and social development for life" is more critical than ever. Because of this, the Offices of the Grand Chapter has ramped up our extensive support system for our chapters and colonies, volunteers and alumni.
The dollars that you have invested in our Fraternity are still being put to work even though our chapters are not on campus. We see this as an opportunity to highlight many resources our members might not know about and to create new ones, giving a voice to our membership and impacting their needs.
A few examples below:
Our Regional Teams have begun hosting regular video chat hours and reaching out regularly to our chapters. In many cases, these chats last for more than an hour per chapter. View the schedule below
Our Expansion and Growth team has spent a significant amount of time helping groups develop summer and fall recruitment plans. Interested in scheduling your own session? Contact Nick Kimble
and Zach Scott
