What are the responsibilities of a delegate?

April 12, 2011

Welcome back to Terminology Tuesday! Each Tuesday we will blog about some commonly misused terms within the Fraternity. It’s our hope that you take some time to read, laugh, smile, and then use the information to alter your word choices, and the choices of those around you.

Grand Chapter Congress is coming up in August and each alumni and collegiate chapter select one delegate to represent their chapter during voting at GCC.

Official delegates have the following duties:

  • To report to the official credentials desk at the Grand Chapter Congress prior to the opening business session.
  • To report to the official credentials desk at the Grand Chapter Congress prior to rotating with an alternate.
  • To attend the orientation session at the Grand Chapter Congress.
  • To attend all business sessions of the Grand Chapter Congress, unless rotating with an alternate delegate.
  • To report back to the chapter all business conducted at the Grand Chapter Congress.

Alternates must adhere to the duties of delegates, but are not required to attend all sessions, as long as the chapter is represented in their absence.

See you in Louisville in August!

    You left off one major point: TO REPRESENT YOUR CHAPTER! The delegate’s primary job is to represent their chapters views on the issues brought before the Congress. The delegate should be prepared to participate in debate on issues important to their chapter, and vote on each issue brought before Congress. Without each chapters votes, there is no Congress and no representation of the chapters on issues.
