Phi Alpha Delta Membership

Our chapter is designed with an Executive Board, Committee Chairs, Cabinet, Congress, and General Body. Our chapter observes an open membership policy, which you can read more about here.

General Body

Our General Body members enjoy the full benefits of being in PAD. They can attend social events, LSAT and GRE tutoring, and speaker events. All brothers are assigned a committee and a House.

Our Chapter is uses a Congressional system to represent the interests of our large body of members. Any General Body member is allowed to run Congress. Congressional elections are held once a semester at the beginning of the semester. Congress members are responsible for hosting events for their respective house and holding office hours for their constituents. Congress is a perfect option for brothers who are interested in leadership positions in the future

Committees

All our brothers sit on a committee led by either a member of the Executive Board or Committee Chair. Phi Alpha Delta - Tulane Chapter has several committees that allow our brothers to expand on their professional experiences and give input on important decisions. Once a new member is initiated, they join a committee.

Community Service

This committee focuses on giving back to our community. All brothers are required to attend community service events organized and planned by the committee and Community Service chairs. Our community service opportunities range from chapter volunteer days to days where individuals can volunteer with the committee’s community partners throughout the semester.

This committee gives brothers hands-on experience managing the financial aspect of the brotherhood from due collection to setting a draft budget. This committee also has a large role in planning events financially and allocating funding between the committees.
