Field Executives

Field Executives are the frontline resource consultants for Theta Chi Fraternity. They are experts in the fields of recruitment, expansion, chapter operations, best practices, and fraternity knowledge—both historical and current. A recruit for the Field Executive position is a charismatic gentleman, a purposeful listener, and a concrete-thinking troubleshooter; Field Executives are selected from the best-of-the-best of Theta Chi Fraternity’s recent graduates.
