The Grand Council

Great Seal of Alpha Rho ChiWhen the fraternity’s National Convention is not in session, the Grand Council governs the national fraternity on its behalf and serves as its board of directors. The six “worthy grand” offices are elected by the Convention. The Grand Advisor is elected by the other six members of the Grand Council.

Each member of the Grand Council is an alumni member, who brings their fraternal and professional experience to the project of operating Alpha Rho Chi. They are supported by a team of national appointees, who help each officer execute programs for the benefit of the membership.
