The Alumni and Volunteer Corporation (AVC) vice president of housing is responsible for managing the chapter facility. The vice president of housing works closely with the AVC treasurer to manage the assets of the AVC. By collaborating with other volunteers, professional property managers and undergraduate officers, the vice president of housing ensures that the facility is competitive with on-campus housing and provides an environment conducive to a positive SigEp experience.
AVCs that do not own or manage property may still elect a vice president of housing to explore and plan for future housing opportunities.
The priorities of the vice president of housing are to:
- Ensure that the chapter house is properly managed and maintained.
- Ensure that the facility is filled to 100 percent capacity and meets its financial pro-forma.
- Ensure life safety features are up-to-date and adequate insurance is carried.
- Plan for future projects and housing opportunities.
- Lead the AVC housing committee.
- Mentor a chapter leader, if needed.
A great vice president of housing has experience in real estate, construction or property management. He or she has the ability to manage a team of volunteers, undergraduates and employees. Delegation is important in this role, as the day-to-day management of a chapter facility will likely be time consuming.
