New Board Member Announced

In a statement to be released later today, Sigma Phi Epsilon Grand President Steve Shanklin will announce the vacant position on the National Board of Directors will be filled by Archer Yeatts, Past Grand President and holder of the Order of the Golden Heart.
"In a special meeting of the Sigma Phi Epsilon National Board of Directors on June 24, 2008, Past Grand President and Order of the Golden Heart Archer L. Yeatts, III, was chosen to fill a vacant position on the Board until the Grand Chapter Conclave in August, 2009. In accordance with the National Bylaws, this appointment is on an interim basis until the meeting of the 51st Grand Chapter Conclave in Orlando next year. At that time, the unexpired portion of the vacated term will be filled by a brother chosen in the ordinary course of the Conclave election process by the undergraduate delegates.

Brother Yeatts’ term of service will begin immediately upon taking the Oath of Office as provided for all elected members to national office in Sigma Phi Epsilon. We are most grateful to Archie for his acceptance of the Fraternity’s call to service and extend our heartiest congratulations on his selection."
The vacant position was due to the resignation earlier this year of Brent Bentrim, who had been elected to the NBD at the 2007 Conclave in Atlanta GA.
