|Please find an agenda below for our one-day

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.
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 70’s. We really need to
discuss this and see how we can more actively involve others from the
80’s, 90’s and the 00’s. 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.
