As National President I am responsible for many different things! I serve as chair to both the National Executive Committee and the National Legislative Council, two of the bodies in which almost all of our policy changes go through. It is my responsibility to lead us in accomplishing our National Goals set by the Board of Trustees. I can do this through the creation of ad-hoc committees, such as our new Communications Committee, as well as through appropriate oversight and communication. I also work with the Chapter planning National Convention to coordinate a fantastic, and smoothly-run event. One of the best things about the position of National President is the amount of interaction I get with Brothers who are incredibly passionate about the success of Mu Beta Psi.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees
As the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, I preside over the functions of the Board. I schedule Board meetings, plan their agenda, and oversee them. I also serve on the National Executive Committee and attend their meetings, acting as a link between the two bodies. I act as the primary contact for our liability insurance provider and am responsible for arranging our insurance coverage each year.
National Vice President of Chapter Maintenance
As National Vice President of Chapter Maintenance, I serve on the National Executive Committee and preside over the National Committee on Chapter Maintenance (NCCM). My primary responsibility is to work to build a stronger and more stable Brotherhood by maintaining relationships with Brothers at the chapter level, overseeing new member processes, and helping with peer mediation when needed. Additional responsibilities include keeping the NCCM Policy up to date and providing guidance on various chapter issues.
National Vice President of Expansion
As NVPE, I seek out new expansion opportunities for Mu Beta Psi. I contact schools that would be a good fit for the Fraternity, and I work with both students, professors, and school administrators to make sure that they understand all about who we are before we pursue any expansion. Once approved, I lead the training of these students so that they are best prepared to become Brothers of Mu Beta Psi. My committee, the National Committee on Expansion, focuses on ways to improve the expansion process, and also assists in evaluating the progress of the colonies preparing to become chapters.
In my role as the National Secretary, my primary goal is to record the proceedings of various meetings that happen within the Fraternity. I regularly attend National meetings to document what transpires and to provide records of past events. I also maintain records of official external correspondance with the Fraternity. Likewise, I facilitate official communication (committee reports, meeting minutes, etc.) within the Fraternity.
As National Treasurer, I manage the day-to-day financial dealings of the Fraternity. This varies from issuing payments and reimbursements, up-keeping our financial records, managing our Fraternity's financial accounts, auditing Chapters, operating the Fraternity's national store: The Psi Pstore, chairing the National Finance Committee, and so-forth. The National Finance Committee discusses the current/future state of our Fraternity's finances and also votes on any new financial initiatives pursued by the Fraternity. We also review the National Finance Policy and update it regularly to reflect the current financial practices of the Fraternity.
As National Historian, I am responsible for the Fraternity's National Archives. I handle and preserve all records from our history and share digital copies of them through the Electronic Archives on the Knowledgebase. I collect submissions of documents from the Chapters and the National Organization on an annual basis. I work with the National Secretary and the Chapter Historians to ensure that all records are preserved properly. During Convention, I oversee the "Price"less Memories Scrapbook Competition. My committee, the National History and Archives Committee (NHAC) focuses on topics concerning the preservation of our history, recordkeeping, and advancing the education of our history and heritage to the Fraternity-at-Large.
National Editor of The Clef
As the National Editor of The Clef, I am in charge of making sure The Clef gets published twice a year. To make sure the diverse voice of our Brotherhood is represented, I have a Clef Editorial Board, which is a volunteer group of Brothers who help me make The Clef. The members of the committee help me execute my vision for each edition, and their responsibilities include article ideas, writing, editing, and graphic design.
This year, I am also managing the ad-hoc Communications Committee. This committee is charged with external communications efforts for our National organization, and plans to assist the Chapters with their communications as well.
Webmaster, National Information Technology Committee Chair
As Webmaster, I manage our websites and mailing lists, and monitor our social media accounts. I offer help support and trouble shooting to our members, and especially to chapter webmasters. My committee, the National Information Technology Committee focuses on addressing chapter needs as they come up, approving social media accounts, and reviewing websites. We also review and update our Information Technology Policy to make sure that it is relevant to the current technological uses.
National Scholarship Management Committee Chair
As National Scholarship Management Committee Chair, I work with my committee of Brothers on building our National Scholarship. This committee is responsible for raising funds, keeping scholarship materials present, and awarding the scholarship. Students that are incoming freshmen or current undergraduate students at our active Chapters' institutions are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Brothers of Mu Beta Psi are not eligible and may not apply.
