The role of National Council is ever evolving.  In the past, National Council monitored the day-to-day operations of the Fraternity.  Today, National Council acts in a strategic capacity.

Within Triangle’s national organization, National Council is responsible for setting strategies and measuring progress toward strategy-level goals that affect all of Triangle.  In its role of leading the Fraternity, National Council always strives to act in a way that represents the founding principles of Triangle.  It values and strives to properly protect the physical and mental health and safety of Triangle members.  National Council acts to foster the financial stability and growth of Triangle and acts to continuously improve the amount of member participation and investment in Triangle.

Since National Council is responsible for defining, setting, and maintaining a strategic direction for Triangle Fraternity, Council members are responsible for evaluating the needs and desires of Triangle Brothers, chapters, and associations.  Councilmen are expected to learn about Triangle, its operating environment, and business policies related to operating and improving the organization.
