President

The duty of a chapter President extends far beyond that of running chapter meetings and initiations. The President is the primary representative for a chapter in all areas of the national/international organizations, college campus, and surrounding community. In light of this fact, chapter Presidents must be equipped to handle many different situations: time management, negotiation, conflict resolution, member motivation, and general chapter management.

In addition, Vanderbilt University has specific Fraternity & Sorority Standards that address all areas of chapter management. A president should set personal and chapter goals with these in mind, and delegate the appropriate sections to executive board officers. The complete Standards document and expectations can be found HERE.
