Each of our 60+ chapters are affiliated with one of our four councils. The councils serve as the governing body for its member groups. Each council is led by an elected executive board. All councils host regular meetings to conduct the business of the council, and promote strong relationships and partnerships amongst their council and within the entire community. They work to better their council and membership experience through programming, education, and accountability.

All students who would like to participate in the intake or recruitment process for any of our organizations must complete the registration or interest form, for that specific council. Please visit the Recruitment & Intake page to learn more.

Contact information for each council can be found on their individual pages.
