WHAT WE DO
There are countless opportunities for involvement and leadership within Alpha Kappa Psi. Our chapter elects eleven executive members each semester, as well as six committees and committee heads.
Executive members oversee the specific responsibilities of the chapter and maintain proper execution of required fraternity tasks. Committees tackle day-to-day and long term tasks including planning the year end formal, brainstorming team building events, and serving within the community.
With the executive positions and assistantships, the committees, and various other leadership activities, members are encouraged to find their niche and grow in skills necessary to become the best business leaders in their chosen fields.
