Theta Tau is again implementing a mentorship program for Spring 2020 to connect brothers and alumni! Sign up here to be matched with a Theta Tau mentor to help you navigate your professional journey.


The program is administered by our continued partners Ambition in Motion for professional workshops. The program includes several webinars and at least three phone or video calls with your mentor. Student mentees who complete the program are fully refunded the nominal commitment fee. 300 student & alumni brothers are participating in this program currently; we hope you join us in signing up by February 11!

Are you an artist or designer?  Do you want your work to become a part of Theta Tau History? Enter by February 14th!

Enter the National Convention T-Shirt Design Competition and your design could grace the 2020 National Convention T-Shirt and other marketing materials.  The winning designer will receive a free convention registration!  The competition is open to be student and alum members.  Visit the entry form for rules and other information!

  • Semester Report Form - Each chapter will be required to submit the semester report form by February 15, 2020.  The form may be downloaded here and should be filled out on paper and then uploaded through the CMT at this link.
  • Premature Alumnus & Resignation Forms - Chapters and members will no longer be required to send payment with premature alumnus and resignation forms.  Fees should be paid by the members to their chapters. Once forms are received, processed and approved, chapters will be billed on their monthly invoice for these fees.

  • InvoicingBeginning this month, invoices will be combined wherever possible.  Instead of receiving separate invoices for pledges, initiation fees and badges and risk management, each chapter will receive one invoice per month, on the last day of the month, with the important exception of dues.  Your dues invoice will continue to be separate and will be sent on or about February 15, 2020.

  • A New Velocitas is ComingWith the start of our new Programming & Communications Coordinator in early February, a visually refreshed Velocitas including easier-to-read designs and more content will begin arriving in your inbox next month!
