Grand Alpha Update
 
Grand Pi Takeover

Brothers,

This is usually the time of the month where you receive a Fraternity update from Grand Alpha Mike Palladino, but with so many great things to share on the educational side, I am taking over this month’s communication!  There are two big items to share, so please sound off in the comments or contact the International Headquarters should you have any questions.

First, as mentioned by Mike in previous updates, the 3rd Carroll K. Simons Institute is happening this summer, August 10th-13, at the Woodland Lakes Retreat Center in Amelia, OH.  The Carroll K. Simons Institute (CSI) is focused on improving the execution of typical Chapter operations, as well as providing team development training that could prove impactful to our members well after college.  If you are a current Chapter officer, looking to become one, or just want an opportunity to network with Brothers from across North America, I highly suggest you consider attending this summer’s CSI.  In addition, if your Chapter sends at least one person, the Chapter will receive a 5% insurance discount for the 2017-2018 academic year!

For a preview of what to expect at this year’s CSI, check out the video below and make sure to click here to register today!  Registration officially closes on July 17, 2017!



We are very excited for the 3rd Carroll K. Simons Institute happening this summer, but we are also excited to announce the location for the 99th Grand Chapter, occurring August 2-5, 2018.  As Grand Pi, I was fortunate to lead a committee to select the next Grand Chapter site.  After speaking with numerous undergraduates and alumni, and touring a few hotel properties, we are ecstatic to announce that the 99th Grand Chapter will be held at the J.W. Marriott in New Orleans, LA!  New Orleans is the epitome of fun and history all in one city, and we couldn’t be happier to host our members here for this event.

As we begin to plan our convention, we are looking for undergraduate members and recent alumni to serve on our Grand Chapter Planning Committee.  This committee gives you the inside track to all things GC, and allows you the opportunity to help make this the best Grand Chapter to date.  If you are interested in serving on this committee, please send me an email directly at rstranix@pks.org.

Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you at CSI and next year’s 99th Grand Chapter!

Fraternally,
Ron Stranix
