#myFraternity, Men of Honor, and the Countdown to 100

Posted By Dave Smith, Monday, September 24, 2018

Brothers and friends,

It is my pleasure to speak with you in my first-ever blog post as grand alpha. It is my hope that this blog will continue to be a useful source of information for upcoming events, undergraduate and alumni accomplishments, and noteworthy happenings here at HQ. We have a big year coming up, and I couldn’t be more excited to share our progress with you all and involve you every chance we get!

First and foremost, registration is now up for Men of Honor 2019. This year, we wanted to change things up a bit to make the experience of our participants, ambassadors, and facilitators even better. It is the opinion of the Executive Board and headquarters staff that we should celebrate every opportunity to grow and learn together, so this year, the Board will be holding its meeting in Asheville during Men of Honor. We believe this will open our doors to you, the active membership, and bring us closer together. Register to be a Men of Honor participant, facilitator, or ambassador, and use the hashtag #MOH19 to stay up-to-date on social media.

I want to thank everyone who attended this year’s 99th Grand Chapter one more time. As many of you know, this was the biggest convention we have had in at least the last decade, and it was humbling to be a part of it with you all. Thanks to our special guests and speakers for their time and enriching presentations, and thanks to our staff and volunteers for organizing the whole thing.

I encourage all of you to volunteer for a 100th Grand Chapter committee. Our 100th convention is sure to be one for the books, and we’ll need all the help we can get as we return to our hometown of Philadelphia. Please reach out to staff for more information on how you can get involved. There are currently four committees, all of which need volunteers: Educational Programming, Alumni Programming, Social Event Planning, and Spouse Programming. Use the hashtag #GC100 to stay up-to-date with Grand Chapter 2020, and we’ll see you in the City of Brotherly Love!

Recently, the Fraternity took part in the NIC’s social media day, dubbed #myFraternity. This campaign was meant to highlight the positive change Greek organizations affect in their members, on their campuses, and in their communities. During a day of dizzying national and international news stories, #myFraternity was the 11th top-trending topic on Twitter. Congratulations to everyone who took part. Keep the message going on your personal social media and your chapter’s social media by using the hashtag #myFraternity year-round.

Thanks for all you do, and here’s to a great school year!

Fraternally,
Dave Smith
