Saturday, March 20, 2010
11:40am: Attendees will walk from the Lodge to the classroom
12:00pm: Lunch in our classroom, programming begins
6:00pm: Programming ends (at the latest)
6:30pm: Dinner at the Lodge
Our Programming will focus on the development of standards for recruitment and membership for Alphas. These standards are not a contract for Brothers to sign, but a benchmark for individual performance within the Alpha. They allow Alpha leadership to focus more efficiently on areas where success is lacking to improve their Alpha's overall performance. We'll develop some incentive programs for Alphas to help drive participation and attendance. We'll review the Fraternity's new Facebook application and discuss key initiatives for fall 2010.
Programming at the Rowe Regional Conferences is designed for Chi Psi undergraduates and alumni, Brothers and Pledges.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in Ann Arbor this weekend. Please encourage your peers to register online at http://www.chipsi.org/event/rc-epsilon.
