Awards, Black Book, & Grand Council

Fraters receive Top Teke AwardsINDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Every two years an opportunity presents itself that is unlike any other – Conclave. This celebration is not only a chance to gather with thousands of Fraters from around the TKE Nation, all of your hard work culminates in being recognized in front of everyone. That is, of course, if you apply for the various awards available. 

Awards of Excellence 

Included in the awards application are several categories that chapters and colonies need to be recognized for: Recruitment-Results, Recruitment-Chapter Size, Involvement-Community Service, Involvement-Alumni Relations, Achievement-Academic Success, and Achievement-Extracurricular Activities. Apply today. Due May 16.
Top TKE Chapter
The best of the best – The cream of the crop – The Top TKE chapters show excellence in several categories to earn this desired distinction. Only a handful or chapters can claim this, but it could be you! Whether the chapter has been around one year or 112, the playing field is level. You must apply for the Awards of Excellence if you want a shot at this most coveted award. Due May 16.
Top Teke
This is an individual award presented to a senior or graduate student (who has not earned this recognition before) for outstanding performance as a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon. If you are a good student and have demonstrated superior leadership skills during your tenure, this recognition could be yours. Much like the Top TKE Chapter award, only a handful is selected throughout the TKE Nation. Make sure your name is included by applying today. Due May 16.
Top TKE Recruiter
Did you have an amazing year of recruitment results? If so, the chairman or another member who made a significant impact on this outcome should be considered. The individual must be able to explain how his membership recruitment skills are exceptional. If this sounds like you, fill out an application. Due May 16.
Grand Council & Black Book

In addition to awards, two of the most important aspects of the convention are making changes to the Black Book and voting for your next Grand Council. To make changes to the Black Book, please read this article.
The new Grand Council, as of the 2009 Black Book legislation change, consists of eight elected Grand Officers, two at-large alumni appointed by the Grand Officers, and a representative of the Collegiate Advisory Committee.
Applications for potential candidates to fill the 2011-13 positions are now being accepted. If you or an alumnus you know would make an outstanding member of the Grand Council, please submit supporting materials today. The Grand Prytanis requests that suggestions and supporting materials be submitted by July 22, 2011 to allow the nominations committee ample time to review the skills each would bring to TKE’s leadership team, and identify top prospects to make sure the Fraternity has the strongest, most well-rounded board possible. In particular, suggestions for alumni with a strong background in higher education, governmental relations, media/ public relations, association management, or housing/ commercial real estate are encouraged.
Grand Council members are not compensated for their service, and are expected to cover their own expenses related to travel and TKE-related service. Candidates should further review Grand Council Ethics & Commitment Statement, Conflict of Interest Policy, and other information as found on related to Grand Council service
