Our Leaders

Alpha Phi Omega is led by a diverse group of members who are elected by their brothers. These individuals dedicate themselves to serving APO and guiding the Fraternity as we strive towards our goal of 500 chapters by 2025. The Alpha Phi Omega Board of Directors, as prescribed by the National Bylaws, is the governing body of the Fraternity between national conventions. The Board has the power (within the confines of the Bylaws) to act on all matters it deems to be in the best interest of the Fraternity. 
The Board consists of the following elected, life members, appointed and ex-officio members.

Elected:

·        National President
·        National Vice President
·        Six Program Directors
·        Eleven Regional Directors

Life Members:

·        Past National Presidents
·        Life Members of the Board

Ex-Officio and Appointed:
  • National Executive Director
  • A Representative of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America
  • National Legal Counsel
  • National Archivist
  • International Relations Director

The Board is required to meet at least annually. Actions taken by the Board are reported to chapters in Torch & Trefoil, the Fraternity's quarterly magazine. 

Each convention elects the National President, National Vice President and six Program Directors. Also, at each convention, the chapters in attendance from each region elect the eleven regional directors. All elected members serve two-year terms.

In addition, each region contains sections which are lead by sectional chairs. The Fraternity currently has 61 sectional chairs in office. Sectional chairs are voted into office yearly at their conferences. Each section contains any and all chapters within the set geographical boundaries.
