National Committees

The National Committees serve the mission of the Kappa Epsilon Fraternity by achieving its goals. The committee members are volunteers chosen to serve throughout a biennium and are appointed during the Kappa Epsilon National Convention. Several committees are comprised of an alumni member and an officer of the Grand Council.

These valued committee members are strategic in the work of Kappa Epsilon, as they review, solicit, gather, develop, present, coordinate, update, select, submit and ensure that every detail is accomplished to achieve the goals.
