New Alumni Advisory Board member Fran Ritchey speaks during the alumni Coming Home Reception at PTK Catalyst 2017.
Twenty-five alumni have been appointed to the newly formed Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) as Phi Theta Kappa seeks to reconnect with its alumni and re-engage them in Society programs.
The AAB consists of a representative from each of the Society’s regions. Board members then elected four Vice Presidents to represent each of PTK’s four divisions. Current board members have terms of service that vary in length from one to three years, and each subsequent board member will serve for three years.
Duties include increasing awareness of Phi Theta Kappa, helping the Society better connect with alumni, providing input to the Headquarters staff on Society issues, and serving as a communications liaison between Phi Theta Kappa Headquarters and alumni associations in their respective regions.
