Alpha Phi Omega extended the hand of service beyond the United States through the separate entity of Alpha Phi Omega – Philippines. APO-Phil is a self-governing organization based on the same Scouting principles of APO-USA.


The two organizations formally discuss issues of mutual interest through the International Council of Alpha Phi Omega. The International Council of Alpha Phi Omega continues to lead expansion efforts. For example, APO-Philippines has now expanded into Australia and APO-USA has expanded into  Canada. Canada Alpha Chapter was charted in December of 2015.


Developing Leaders for the Fraternity and Beyond


Alpha Phi Omega is supported and led by dozens of brothers who have dedicated themselves to bettering Alpha Phi Omega and its programming in order to develop more leaders on more campuses through service.


Alpha Phi Omega is led by a diverse group of members who are elected by their brothers. These individuals dedicate themselves to serving APO and guiding the Fraternity as we strive towards our goal of 100,000 active students providing service in the name of Alpha Phi Omega. The Alpha Phi Omega Board of Directors, as prescribed by the National Bylaws, is the governing body of the Fraternity between national conventions. The Board has the power (within the confines of the Bylaws) to act on all matters it deems to be in the best interest of the Fraternity.


Additionally, the Fraternity has a National Operations Council that is responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of the Fraternity’s programs and other administrative and operational functions. The council is comprised of ten program chairs, who oversee the various program areas of the Fraternity, and 18 regional chairs who represent and oversee the administration of the Fraternity’s geographic regions.


In addition to the elected leaders who support the Fraternity, APO has a professional staff as well. The Fraternity’s National Office is located in Kansas City, Missouri, just south of Downtown. The Fraternity employs 17 full-time staff members who are available by phone and email to answer questions. The National Office is open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.
