About International Office

Each year five students are elected during the Society's Annual Convention to serve as international officers. The International Officer Team includes a president and four vice presidents, each representing one of the Society's four geographic divisionsView International/National Officer History.

International officers are elected by the delegate body attending the Annual Convention and serve one-year terms. One international officer is selected from the group to serve a one-year team on the Board of Directors. Holding international office is considered the pinnacle of student leadership within Phi Theta Kappa, and the campaigning experience for international office has been called a broadening and learning experience.

International President

The International President may be a member of any active chapter. The duties of the International President include presiding at the Annual Convention and Honors Institute, signing all new chapter charters and representing Phi Theta Kappa at regional meetings and educational conferences.

International Vice Presidents

The International Vice Presidents maintain regular correspondence with chapters in their respective divisions, represent the Society at regional meetings and educational conferences, and preside at the Annual Convention and Honors Institute.
