Position Description

The Student Member-at-Large is expected to:

  • Participate fully in the National Council meetings during late June.

    • Participate in discussions, contribute to making decisions that ensure the Society's future and maintain its adherence to the purposes and goals established in the Bylaws.

  • Serve on and/or chair committees.

    • Committee obligations occur both at the meeting and throughout the year.

    • As the needs of the Society demand, serve on ad hoc and special committees.

  • Interact with chapters and advisors as requested and appropriate.

    • Interaction may include phone calls, emails, letters, attendance at initiations, and other special events. Trips to chapters are usually assigned to Council members closest to save travel costs. No trips to chapters are required; however, if one makes any trip on behalf of Alpha Lambda Delta, all expenses are reimbursed.

  • Serve in other capacities that are useful to the Society.
