INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Tau Kappa Epsilon is proud to announce the members of 2009-10 Collegiate Advisory Committee. The CAC is a nine member committee which represents TKE’s 10,250 collegiate members, providing valuable insight and input to help improve the programs, services, and operations of the Fraternity. A representative of the CAC serves as a voting member of the Grand Council, TKE’s board of directors.

Upon making the announcement, TKE Chief Executive Officer Kevin Mayeux stated “This is an excellent group of dynamic young men from across the TKE Nation. I am looking forward to working with each of them to help continue pushing our great Fraternity forward over the course of the next year.”
As you can see from the list above, the CAC is a cross-section of the Fraternity - geographically, by type of school, by seniority in college, and other factors representing TKE’s diverse membership and large Grand Chapter footprint. All members are active collegiate members, in good standing, and have the endorsement of their Chapter Advisor or Board of Advisors Chairman. CAC members are expected to be available for a face-to-face meeting in late January as well as several conference calls during the academic year.
Grand Prytanis Herb Songer also added, “These men each bring a unique perspective to the table, exactly what we need to help keep this organization on the cutting edge in every facet of operation. This is an exciting new partnership between the Grand Council and CAC.”
Founded January 10, 1899 at Illinois Wesleyan University, Tau Kappa Epsilon is the world’s largest social fraternity with chapters on 276 campuses in the United States and Canada. TKE has initiated more than 250,000 men since its founding. The Fraternity aims to build better men for a better world.
