Grand Council Update
It is with regret that we inform you of the resignation of Amy Bailes, Theta Phi Alpha's National Treasurer. It was a difficult decision for Amy, but one the Fraternity must support. Amy served the Fraternity as National Treasurer since July 2008. We thank her for her loyal and dedicated service to the Fraternity in this role. In consultation with the National Constitution & Bylaws Chairman, the Grand Council has developed a transition plan so that all financial needs of the Fraternity, including our chapters, colonies, and alumnae associations, are supported during this phase.
At this time, all matters concerning the National Treasurer should be directed to Laura Foley, National President, at NP@ThetaPhiAlpha.org and/or Shane McGoey, Executive Director, at SMcGoey@ThetaPhiAlpha.org.
