The Grand Chapter

The Grand Chapter is the supreme governing body of the Fraternity. Meetings are held every one or so years and is composed of delegates from active and alumni chapters, the officers of the Grand Chapter (consisting of the Grand Presiding Senior, Chairperson of the Executive Trustees, Grand Secretary-Treasurer and other officers needed to run the Grand Chapter), and members of Grand Chapter Committees elected by the preceding sessions. Each active and alumni chapter is allowed to elect a delegate and an alternate as its representative in the Grand Chapter.

The Executive Trustees include the Chairperson, Grand Presiding Senior, Grand Presiding Junior, Grand Secretary-Treasurer and Member at Large.
