Be sure to update your contact info while you're there! W hat an awesome honor it is for me to write to you about our alumni chapter. As many of you may know, I was elected Alumni Commander in August of 2020. John Morgan HZ549 served the alumni chapter as Commander from 2016 to 2020, leaving me some very big shoes to fill. Please join me in expressing our gratitude and appreciation to Brother Morgan for his service to the alumni chapter. Serving as Commander includes a number of responsibilities. In addition to developing outreach initiatives and alumni events, promoting active chapter engagement, and administering the alumni database, the position also serves on the board of directors of the Eta Zeta House Corporation. is has been a great way to reconnect with the active chapter and get to know the House Corporation members even better. is group, led by President Frank Potts HZ465, has done amazing work on fundraising for the new house and providing temporary housing for the active chapter. ere will certainly be more to come, but for now please plan to be in Ruston the weekend of September 24-25 to attend a celebration of 60 years of Eta Zeta. We are already working on a fun-filled weekend with events for alumni of all ages and their families. If you are interested in helping with the planning, please reach out to me using the contact information below. When developing goals for our alumni chapter, it is a daunting task to know where to begin. e active chapter just initiated HZ1407 and our alumni group has over 1,300 members, so you can see even administering the database can be a challenge. Obviously, our primary goal is to finish our fundraising efforts and get started on the new house. Just as obvious, however, is the need to engage our alumni group beyond fundraising. With that in mind, I hope to focus on these primary areas of engagement: • Connecting alumni of all ages with Eta Zetas in their area. • Alumni assistance for recruitment (both Sigma Nu and Louisiana Tech). • Alumni interaction for chapter development. • Alumni mentorship for new graduates. • Assistance with career opportunities. • Increasing alumni communication. If anyone is interested in helping with any of these projects or needs to update their contact information, please contact me. Finally, you can find out more information about the active and alumni chapters by visiting (please update your profile), joining our Sigma Nu (Eta Zeta Chapter) Facebook group, or following @ sigmanuhz on Instagram. Love, Truth, and Honor never go out of style. Fraternally, Jason D. Smith HZ642 Commander, Alumni Chapter (318) 218-4985 ALUMNI COMMANDER REPORT
