Through Team Excellence, chapters have leadership teams, rather than executive boards. These teams consists of a president, as well as vice presidents of operations, programming, recruitment, membership development, academic affairs, house management (for housed chapters), and a member at large. Each vice president and member at large maintains sub teams of coordinators who organize various chapter events, such as philanthropic programming, recruitment, sisterhood, social events and more.
