Each college chapter is chartered by the UCF Alumni Board, and required to have the following five executive committee leadership positions to maintain status as an alumni chapter. Executive committee positions and descriptions are listed at the bottom of the page. In addition to the required positions that make up the executive committee, each chapter can establish supplemental chair positions to support the primary functions of the executive committee.
