National Council

The elected officers of Alpha Sigma Tau are the National Council. The National Council consists of one President and five Vice Presidents, one of whom must be a collegian at the time of election. In fact, Alpha Sigma Tau is proud to be the first and only NPC organization with a collegian as a voting member of the National Council!

Role of the National Council

Guided by our core values, the National Council leads the Sorority in developing and meeting strategic initiatives. Using data and trends, they establish strategic priorities to advance Alpha Sigma Tau and ensure its relevance to members in today’s ever-changing society.

As the Sorority’s governing body, they’re responsible for the following:

  • Fulfill all provisions in the governing documents
  • Provide strategic planning along with the vision, direction, and prioritization of Sorority initiatives
  • Hire, supervise, and (if necessary) discipline and terminate the Chief Executive Officer, who implements the goals and strategies of the National Council and the advancement of the Sorority as a whole
  • Provide proper financial oversight
  • Establish policy that defines and upholds the Sorority’s values and customs
  • Enhance the Sorority’s internal and public image
  • Determine and monitor the organization’s programs and services
  • Ensure adequate human and financial resources
  • Evaluate itself, the organization’s outcomes, and the Executive Director at least once annually
  • Identify and develop leadership competencies of women who will be ready to serve the Sorority in various volunteer roles
