Club advisors are Maggie Courson, professor math and science, Christopher Drennan, professor history and government, and Steven Frederick, associate vice president for institutional advancement, and Barbara Golden, the Humanities Department.

The Alpha Pi Tau Chapter members started early in the semester with their activities. They set up an information table at the Fall Carnival to recruit new members and held a raffle for a basket of college supplies. They entered a team in the annual Amazing Race, participated in the Autism Awareness Walk at the PARC Oval, and established a CCC Facebook page. They plan to participate in the 2010 ARC Festival of Trees event at Champlain Centre’s Mall and to join the Human Services Club in the annual Toys For Our Kids drive. The club provided ten full Pinnacle Scholarships. These scholarships go toward membership dues.
