Psi Alumni Meeting and Workshop
February 7, 2014 8:00AM
Leadership Center

Please find an agenda below for our one-day meeting on Friday February 7th.  This is an open meeting and all Betas are welcome to attend.   Please register so we can appropriately plan for the day.   Rooms at the Gresham House are only $65 for single and $32.50 for a double. The signup form is here.

Sven and Scott Miller are traveling Friday so they will give us an update on the college and outlook on Thursday evening at the end of our Alumni Dinner. We will have Gerry Stebbins, Dean of Students, give us an update on Greek Life over breakfast.

In general, my thought is to have some of the Actives (officers) attend breakfast and discuss areas of interest as a kick-off to our day. We will then focus on House Corp issues and plans and have some good open dialogue over lunch. Charitable Foundation status and activities will be discussed in the early afternoon, centering on current programs and future ideas and direction. My hope is that we can get some board members in town but we are planning to have a conference bridge open for interested brothers to participate so at the very least if can conference board members in that would be great.

Lastly, I wanted to have some dialogue around the future of the organization. Specifically, for the last 10 years all aspects of Psi have been dominated mostly by men from the 70s. We really need to discuss this and see how we can more actively involve others from the 80s, 90s and the 00s. They are the future and failing to plan will certainly mean a plan to fail. We have some dedicated younger men that are stepping up, we need to encourage and embrace their involvement and smoothly transition where possible to the next generation of leaders. I for one, am looking to find someone (younger person) to be ready to step into the role of leading the Psi Diamond Alumni group.

Your attendance and interest is appreciated.  Please signup here!  Thank you.
