The Bulletin of Tau Beta Pi
THE BULLETIN OF TAU BETA PI is now published four times annually and available exclusively online as of March 2009.
The purpose of THE BULLETIN is to disseminate news and information about Tau Beta Pi of special interest to the collegiate chapters. It is an important vehicle for the annual repetition of instructions from the Executive Council and Headquarters to the chapters on election and initiation procedures and for the exchange of chapter project ideas and experience. It is distributed to roughly 25,000 members including current students, recent graduates, District Directors, and Chapter Advisors.
The first issue of THE COUNCIL BULLETIN was published in October, 1925. The 1926 Convention recognized its importance and created the office of Assistant Editor of THE BENT and defined the duties there of as those of editing THE COUNCIL BULLETIN. It was published as the collegiate chapter edition of THE BENT until September, 1941, when its editorial affairs were separated from those of the official quarterly magazine. With the creation of the post of Assistant Secretary-Treasurer in 1963, editorial responsibility was given to the Secretary-Treasurer at Headquarters. The 1984 Convention changed the name of the publication to THE BULLETIN.
