Our Mission | How We're Organized | Chapter History | Our Future
TKE has over 275 chapters in the United States and Canada and also is confederated with a German fraternity, Weinheimer Senioren Convent ("The Corps"), of Weinheim, Germany. The Beta-Pi Chapter is part of Region 2 of TKE, which includes most of the South, and of TKE's Georgia Province.
The Undergraduate Chapter
The Beta-Pi chapter at the Georgia Institute of Technology was founded in 1948 and had initiated 1,300 members as of the end of the 2005 spring semester.
The Beta-Pi Chapter, like all TKE chapters, is headed by a committee of eight elected "Greek" officers, so called because they have ancient Greek titles. The president of the undergraduate chapter is the prytanis. There are numerous other elected and appointed officers as well. Together they form the Executive Committee or "Exec", which meets weekly at least to coordinate the work of the Chapter.
The current Greek officers are:

Since spring 1994, every new prytanis of the Chapter has been taken to dinner by a collection of ex-presidents (at right) where he receives words of wisdom and assurance as well as a long list of alumni to whom he can turn for advice and support. No prytanis of the Beta-Pi Chapter has had to "reinvent the wheel" for over ten years. This continuity is one of the keys to the Chapter's success.
The Chapter has its own set of by-laws that govern the day-to-day operations of the organization. Chapter meetings are weekly during fall and spring and bi-weekly during summer. All undergraduate members in good standing are eligible to vote on matters brought before the Chapter.
The Alumni Association
The TKE Atlanta Alumni Association is active and provides services and activities for any TKE alumnus in the Atlanta area. An alumni association for TKE Beta-Pi is currently in the concept stage.
Two corporate entities are associated with the TKE Beta-Pi Chapter. Both of these are nonprofit organizations, 501c (7), in the state of Georgia.
