Sorry, Grand Boule is Zeta Phi Beta. But I believe are both spelled with an e with an accent, not a bare e.

Also, is the use of Boule to represent a meeting original with Alpha Kappa Alpha? And where did its use come from?

Our top legislative body is the National Assembly. The National Assembly meets in the context of the larger National Convention.

Just to keep things confusing.

The correct spelling, per our international website, is Boule, as written.

As we are a Greek letter organization, Greek words/phrases/terms are used. Boule = parliament or legislative council.

Among Black orgs, Sigma Pi Phi may have been first to use the term "Boule" in this sense, though I admittedly wouldn't know if any predominately white organizations would have used it prior to Sigma Pi Phi's founding.
