As a Theta Tau volunteer, you will:
Encourage engineering careers while developing your own skills;
Build a lifelong professional network;
Shape the future of STEM and other industries;
Uphold the values and amplify the impact of the incredible organization you’ve joined.
The Fraternity is always seeking volunteers committed to furthering the purpose of Theta Tau: to develop and maintain a high standard of professional interest among its members, and to unite them in a strong bond of fraternal fellowship. Theta Tau appreciates and admires the unique talents and diverse experiences of our members — you too can be a helpful brother by volunteering and contributing your talents and experiences.
Opportunities abound at a variety of time and travel commitments, and are not limited to the roles listed on this page. Volunteers currently serve as chapter advisers, on national committees, toward specific projects, or as National Officers. Whether you have one hour a month or one hour a day, we can benefit from teaming up. It doesn’t take much time to make an impact on future generations of Theta Tau and members of our professions. It does take the efforts of many brothers to support thousands of student members and alumni and to meet our goal of engineering leaders for service, profession, and brotherhood.
National Officers are volunteers with defined roles and commitments supporting Fraternity operations and the Strategic Plan. National officers typically serve two-year terms, from Convention to Convention. Descriptions of these positions linked or referenced below outline some expectations and qualifications for each office. Apply to be a National Officer on this form!
