Alpha Delta Pi Volunteer Structure

Working in partnership with Executive Office staff, Alpha Delta Pi has an expansive volunteer family. Alpha Delta Pi volunteers include:

Grand Council – Elected by a vote of the delegates to Grand Convention, Grand Council is the organization’s Board of Directors made of an International President and six International Vice Presidents. The Executive Director serves as an ex-officio member.

Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) – The Strategic Leadership Team includes both alumnae volunteers and Executive Office staff members. Grand Council, District Team Directors, Programming Director Chairs, the Chief Panhellenic Officer, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee Chair, Ritual, History, and Heritage Director Chair, Foundation President, Philanthropy Director Chair, and the Executive Office Leadership Team are members of the Strategic Leadership Team. SLT meets on a regular basis as determined by Grand Council to assess trends in the organization and on campuses and serves as the principal implementation body for Alpha Delta Pi operating procedures. Between meetings, Strategic Leadership Team members work together and in partnership with Executive Office staff members to achieve the sorority’s priorities.

International Officers – Alpha Delta Pi is divided into four districts based on locations: Central, Northern, Southern and Western. Each district is led by a District Team Director (DTD) who is a volunteer and a Collegiate Services Specialist (CSS) who is a member of Executive Office Staff. The DTDs then oversee a team of Collegiate Province Directors who work with specific chapters and Programming Directors who work with specific functional areas of the organization. Collectively, we refer to these alumnae volunteers as International Officers.


Alumnae Association Officers – Alumnae volunteers who oversee the operations, membership, programming and events of a geographic or chapter alumnae association.

House Corporation Officers – Alumnae volunteers managing the operations for an Alpha Delta Pi facility.

Standing and Special Committees – Grand Council may appoint alumnae volunteers and collegians to serve on additional standing or special committees.
