Serving as an officer for your college or university’s OΔK circle—whether as a student or a faculty member—is a rewarding experience that helps you network, develop your leadership skills, and contribute to your community.
Most circles have an entire slate of student officers but, at the very least, there are three key people who work together to maintain the OΔK Idea within each circle.
Be sure to review the officer handbook, which provides a thorough guide to information and important dates needed as an OΔK circle leader, 2015-16 Officer Handbook.
