The 2018 Convention strongly recommended that Tau Beta Pi focus on increasing its presence on Instagram. You can find the Association’s account here.
Collegiate and alumni chapters are also encouraged to create an Instagram account. Most importantly, we need you to post you awesome TBP-related content and tag it (#taubetapi). Each week the Association will highlight an image of the week. The Alabama Delta Chapter (@uah_taubetapi) has this week’s profiled image.
