Grand Arch Council

The Grand Arch Council (GAC) serves as the Fraternity's biennial legislative convention, which takes place in even years. The GAC is the largest gathering of the Fraternity with over 700 members and guests from all over the country in attendance. The GAC is made of delegations from all chapters and alumni associations and serves as the supreme governing body. It elects the alumni members of the Executive Council and makes recommendations for the future direction of the Fraternity. 


Attendees can enjoy signature events such as the Foundation's golf tournament, the Founders Cup, the President's Reception, and the annual awards. Participants also become a part of the governance by serving on committees which discuss current issues facing the Fraternity.


The 2016 Grand Arch Council will be held in the iconic New York City, July 6-10. Make sure to save the date in your calendars, and make plans to join us at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square! Make sure to RSVP to our Facebook event.
