On Wednesday night, the Interfraternity Council elected a new board to be led by Wharton junior David Moore of Kappa Sigma.

Moore, who is currently the president of his fraternity and the vice president of strategic planning for IFC, will be joined by College junior and Sigma Phi Epsilon President Steven Acchione as executive vice president. 

This year, four positions were cut from the executive board: Vice President of Strategic Planning, Treasurer, Vice President of Academics and Vice President of Public Relations/Communication. A new role was added in place of two of the former positions in order to streamline the board. The Vice President of Administration will combine the tasks of the former VP of strategic planning and treasurer. This position will be in charge of managing IFC financial accounts, collect dues from chapters, working on a strategic plan and communicating with Panhellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council officers, according to the job description given to voting members. College sophomore and Psi Upsilon Treasurer Bradley Freeman was elected to take on the new role.

One representative from each fraternity chapter may vote in the elections for the six executive board candidates. The highest ranking officer in each fraternity who is available to attend is expected to show up to vote, usually the president of the fraternity. 

College junior Griffin Rubin was re-elected to the role of judicial inquiry board  manager. The current Sigma Chi social chair will continue to lead this internal governing body that deals with issues like violation of alcohol policy and is expected to maintain a relationship with the director of the Office for Alcohol and Other Drug Program Initiatives. 

College junior and Phi Kappa Psi Vice President Dylan Love will be the new VP of recruitment and new member education, advocating greek life during rush and working with recruitment chairs of each chapter to carry it out.

Engineering junior and Lambda Chi Alpha External Vice President and Philanthropy Chair Adam Rawot will be the new VP of philanthropy, organizing community service opportunities and maintaining relationships with the Civic House.
