Responsibilities of a Successful Fraternity President
A graduate of Wake Forest University, Carter Boyce served as president of the Kappa Alpha Order’s 75-member Tau Chapter. In this role, Carter Boyce brought the fraternity to prominence as winner of such national honors as the Excellence in Recruitment and Chapter Growth Award and the Most Improved Chapter award.
The leader of a fraternity has a challenging job. He must earn the respect of his brothers and provide solid guidance while also living among them as a peer. To do so, the fraternity president needs to develop a vision of what he wants the chapter to be and to do. This vision allows him to make decisions and set priorities, which will in turn define the character of the chapter itself.
Because such a vision is so all-encompassing, the chapter president must honor the thoughts, ideas, and values of his brothers. He must ask for suggestions and honor requests, so that the brothers see him as one who respects them as members of the organization. Similarly, he should be able to delegate and trust those delegates to act responsibly while monitoring projects to ensure that they remain focused. Throughout each project, and on a daily basis as well, the president must maintain a positive outlook and set a strong example that will keep the fraternity on the road to success.
