Officer Resources

ZBT International Headquarters officers many resources and other information to help improve your chapter or colony. The leadership training provided in your fraternity experience will bring great benefits throughout your life.

About ZBT Executive Boards

After careful review and analysis of what is working in our most successful chapters, the ZBT Supreme Council approved a uniform office structure that gives our chapters the best leadership plan for a strong brotherhood. Adopted in summer 2016, the plan calls for a three-year rollout. Now in its second year, all chapters are expected to be using the required structure by the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.

ZBT has put together an Officer Organizational Chart to explain this structure in detail. More details on the responsibilities of each officer is available through ZBT’s online educational portal, COMPASS. Officer information is available under the Fraternity Operations area.

2017-2018 Deadlines and Due Dates

It’s critical to ensure that all chapter/colony deadlines are met for ZBT and your institution. See ZBT’s deadline sheet for the current academic year for full information.

Regional Officer Institute Pilots

This 2018 pilot program has five tracks to help each officer better understand his roles and responsibilities within the chapter. The development of these programs is based off feedback from undergraduates over the past three years and their involvement at programs like Dover Days and International Convention.

We recommend chapters and colonies send the appropriate officer to two or three of the tracks. Each chapter/colony will choose which pilots to attend. Registration is open now in myZBT.

February 3 – Operations Director – Washington, DC
February 10 – Brotherhood Development Director – Tampa, FL
February 17 – Recruitment Director – Los Angeles, CA
February 24 – Finance Director – Boston, MA
February 24 – Standards Director – Chicago, IL

The registration deadline for each of these dates will be two weeks in advance of the program. If you have any questions, please contact ZBT International Headquarters at (317) 334-1898.

Chapter and Colony Fees

Joining a fraternity is an investment in your future. Though chapters may have additions or changes that require a different local dues amount, ZBT International Headquarters has a base fee structure in place that all our chapters and colonies must follow.

This document offers a greater understanding as to where international dues are spent and how they are broken down. We encourage brothers and families to review all the information and contact ZBT International Headquarters with any questions, comments or concerns. We work hard to provide top-notch programming and servicing to our undergraduates and alumni.

Recordkeeping in myZBT

Rosters, officer roles, individual information and more records are maintained through the Vault portal in myZBT. It is essential that a chapter’s data be accurate. For questions or assistance with Vault, contact ZBT International Headquarters.

Additional Resources for Colonies

At the time of colonization, the colony accepts a chartering agreement. This document outlines the requirements needed to move to chapter status. The colony must meet the requirements set by the Council within two years.
