The regional director is charged with working closely with the chapter educational resource coordinator, regional volunteers, and the vice president to ensure a quality student experience. Through the support of effective chapter operations and the learning and development initiatives of the fraternity, the regional director has a lasting impact on the professional and personal growth of Alpha Kappa Psi students and volunteers.

  • Recruiting, training and maintaining a Regional Management Team, including chapter advisors, regional managers, and section directors; and,
  • Maintaining communication with the Professional staff, Management Team, and the Western Great Plains region.
