A Traveling Leadership Consultant (TLC) is a recent graduate who devotes full time to ZTA responsibilities. She travels throughout the school year, visiting with collegiate chapters. Her duties include officer education, leadership development, chapter organization, supervision of membership recruitment and assistance with new chapters.
Qualifications for a Traveling Leadership Consultant include collegiate chapter officer experience, membership recruitment ability, enthusiasm, creativity, the ability to work with different types of people and loyalty to the Fraternity. These “ZTA ambassadors” travel throughout the school year with periodic vacation breaks.

The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation funds a portion of TLC expenses, including leadership training and personal development. This is a full-time job.
