Social Chair
The Social Chair of a fraternity holds a pivotal position, tasked with the planning, organization, and execution of social events and activities for the fraternity's members. This role involves a variety of responsibilities including the development of a comprehensive social calendar that may feature formals, mixers with sororities, theme parties, alumni gatherings, and more. The Social Chair must coordinate with venues, vendors, and entertainers to ensure all logistical aspects of these events are meticulously planned and executed, all while managing a budget to ensure events are cost-effective yet impactful. A significant part of the role also involves adhering to risk management practices, ensuring all events comply with university policies, fraternity guidelines, and local laws, particularly regarding alcohol consumption and safety. Collaboration is key, as the Social Chair works closely with the fraternity's leadership team to create events that are inclusive, uphold the fraternity's values, and foster member development and bonding. Moreover, effective communication is essential for promoting events and engaging with members and potential guests, ensuring a vibrant and cohesive social atmosphere within the fraternity. Through their efforts, the Social Chair plays a crucial role in enhancing brotherhood and creating unforgettable experiences for all fraternity members.

Bylaws Committee
Serving on the Bylaws Committee within a fraternity places you at the heart of the organization's governance and operational framework. This committee is entrusted with the critical responsibility of overseeing, reviewing, and recommending modifications to the bylaws— the foundational rules and regulations that dictate how the fraternity is run. The committee's duties include a thorough periodic examination of these bylaws to ensure they remain relevant and reflective of the fraternity's current needs, values, and the external legal landscape. Members of the Bylaws Committee are tasked with proposing amendments, whether it's through drafting new provisions, updating or removing obsolete ones, or clarifying existing language to prevent ambiguities. An essential part of their role also involves ensuring compliance with external regulations and internal goals, making their work pivotal to the fraternity's integrity and functionality. Furthermore, the committee actively engages with the fraternity's broader membership to solicit feedback and suggestions, ensuring that any changes to the bylaws are made with broad consensus and insight. Once changes are approved, the Bylaws Committee helps guide their implementation, ensuring all members are informed and organizational practices are aligned with the new guidelines. In essence, being a part of the Bylaws Committee not only means you are responsible for the legal and ethical backbone of your fraternity but also that you play a key role in shaping its future direction and governance.
