Inside: Homecoming 2019 t 2 Alumni Update t 2-3 Meet the New Leaders of Indiana Alpha t 3 From the heart A PUBLICATION FOR ALUMNI OF INDIANA ALPHA t SIGMA PHI EPSILON t FALL 2019 PURDUESIGEP.ORG Brothers, Next year is critical for Indiana Alpha, and your Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) is committed to ensuring our success through focus, improvement, and expansion in the following four areas. DEVELOP AND GROW THE UNDERGRADUATE CHAPTER We have Mentor Board volunteers in place, supplemented by National Fraternity resources to support all facets of the undergraduate chapter development. Recruitment and implementation of the Balanced Man Program are a focus for us because of the importance of expanding our membership with young men looking for the fraternity experience encapsulated in the Balanced Man Program. The challenge is that we must learn to do these things well without some of the traditional "givens": a chapter house to meet and recruit from and experienced undergraduate brothers to learn from and partner with. I am confident that we have the right support, and it is a matter of time and effort to overcome these challenges. ASSESS NEXT BEST STEPS FOR 690 WALDRON The AVC is incredibly focused on our long-term success in recruitment and development and are assessing the role of the chapter house in these areas. As we explore our options, we are grateful to have secured lease extensions with the Kappa Delta sorority through spring 2021. This partnership and income stream is important while we analyze next steps for Indiana Alpha. KEEP UP ALUMNI ENGAGEMENT It is critical that the work of many is shouldered by many. We were highly encouraged by the participation level at Homecoming and the new volunteers who have stepped up! We need those who are willing to offer their time, talents, and treasures where necessary. MAINTAIN FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY Much work has been done over the last several years to improve our financial outlook. We must remain diligent in driving spending and investment into the areas that bring the most value in return. In closing, the following men have committed to working with and for you, the alumni, as your 2019-20 AVC board members: Daryl Martz '76, Norm Nabhan '71, Scott Swisher '79, Jim Mosch '79, Mark Napier '92, Chris Kelly '80, Ted Hazeldine '65, and Dave Andrews '78. I am excited to serve as your AVC president for another year and look forward to the work we have in front of us in 2020! HFF, Brian Rodell '98 AVC President AVC Remains Committed to Indiana Alpha Chapter's Comeback Alumni Involvement Essential to SigEp's Success at Purdue 1 2 3 4 T he AVC expresses its sincere gratitude for the time and commitment given to Indiana Alpha by three of our outgoing board directors. Brian Todd '97 (previous board treasurer and facilities director) has dedicated a tremendous amount of time toward revitalizing the chapter facilities, updating board policy and bylaws, and overhauling finances through rigorous attention to how and where we spend and invest board money. Mitch Salyers '93 (previous alumni relations director and Balanced Man steward) has volunteered a significant amount of time toward expanding the reach of our alumni relations program through improved communication tools and Homecoming activities, as well as working directly with undergraduate brothers to ensure they are educated on our fraternity history, execute ritual properly, and adopt that Balanced Man Program. Because of Mitch's recent appointment as the chapter counselor, he can no longer also serve as an alumni board director. Mike Ellis '84 (previous alumni relations director and secretary), has dedicated a fantastic amount of his time to update board policy and bylaws, lead and coordinate regular AVC and annual alumni meetings, and provide support to many undergraduate and alumni efforts. The efforts and dedication of these men are to be commended as they were critical to the success of our recent recolonization at Purdue.
