Council of Students

The Council of Students is comprised of seven student vice presidents from chapters across the nation that serve as the student engagement committee for the Society and liaisons between all student members and the national office.

Established in 2007, the Council is tasked with enhancing communication with student vice presidents, planning and hosting the SVP Leadership Summit, and interacting with student vice presidents in the Society’s five divisions. Council members serve a two-year term and are appointed by the Society’s Executive Director prior to each Biennial Convention.

Need help planning an event for your chapter? We encourage you to reach out to a Council member for assistance by clicking their name below.
