Each region has 3 officers; two of which (the Regional Directors for Collegiate and Alumni Affairs) are appointed by the Executive Council. The third is the Regional Correspondent, which is an elected position.
Phi Delta Chi is a multi-dimensional organization that requires flexible leadership to meet its needs. By working as a team on multiple levels, its leadership will be able to provide the products and services Chapters need to succeed. The eight Regional Teams of the Phi Delta Chi Pharmacy Fraternity each consist of three Brothers: the Regional Directors for Collegiate and Alumni Affairs (RDCA and RDAA) and the Regional Correspondent (RC). These Regional Teams are responsible for the growth and success of their respective regions within the goals and expectations outlined by the Executive Council. Each Regional Team functions as the main advisory and support system for its Chapters.
The RDCA and RDAA collaborate with the Regional Correspondent (RC) to manage the activities of the region they represent. Some activities include serving as either secretary or parliamentarian at the Regional Conference, participating on Chapter Excellence and Quality (ChEQ) Program Visit Teams, and partaking in the Fraternity’s Officer Training Retreat at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Attendance at these various meetings and visits will require that the Regional Directors be able to travel throughout their region and country on a few occasions throughout the year. Regional Officers are expected to attend Regional Conferences and Grand Councils and their attendance at Leader-Development Seminars is encouraged.
The Grand Vice Presidents for Student Affairs (GVPSA), Grand Vice President for Collegiate Affairs (GVPCA), and Grand Vice President for Alumni Affairs (GVPAA) advise and support the Regional Officers by enabling them to effectively execute any strategic plan the Regional Team has to assist collegiate chapters in meeting their needs. Regional Officers are obligated to communicate with their respective Grand Officer on at least a monthly basis. Regional Teams should also communicate frequently to have a shared understanding of what is going on with each of their chapters.
Every interested Brother should have the chance to apply for a regional office position. The Executive Director is always accepting of your application.
The two-year appointments for RDCA & RDAA will be made by the Executive Council during Grand Council on odd numbered years. Regional Correspondents are elected at either the 2nd Regional Caucus during of the Grand Council or the Final Business Session of the Regional Conference Meeting.
