We are fortunate to have such a fine group of young men who rise to service through leadership and accept the responsibilities as executives in the undergraduate chapter. They are an exciting group of young men developing as leaders for the fraternity today and for the state and country tomorrow. Members of the House Corporation witnessed the continued progress throughout this year in growing the membership and sustaining and improving the Shelter. We've seen reinvigorated ways to get alumni involved, such as the after-work socials at Big Fred's in Omaha and at Rule G in Lincoln, and the tailgate before the Penn State basketball game where we cheered the Huskers to victory. Chapter social media presence continues to be a beneficial way to communicate with alumni and current members by enhancing the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram experience. If you're not following the chapter social media accounts, see page 4 for a complete list. UPCOMING EVENTS Plan now to join us for the alumni golf tournament, a growing success each year. Please see the save the date section on page 4 for more information. THANK YOU, DEDICATED ALUMNI A special thanks to our loyal alumni who continue supporting the chapter as you fulfill financial pledges to reduce the debt on our remodeled and updated Shelter and contribute to our educational and leadership scholarship funds. We greatly appreciate your support. More than 90 percent of our total commitment has been received, and more than 75 percent of the pledges have been fulfilled. Perhaps your circumstances have changed, but you can take steps to meet or fulfill the remaining amount of your pledge. I am encouraged by the support of Beta Tau leadership scholarships. This is an important step to support young Beta Tau Delts. Consider how you may honor one of the chapter's past or recent leaders. The gifts received to date are funding these scholarships and joining those already fully funded. THE POWER OF YOU Alumni involvement is a continuing need for the chapter. While we do have a fine group of men providing advice to members and serving on the board, we could always use more help. There are routine day-to-day activities, meetings, as well as problem solving for the chapter budget and everyday tasks. Please consider joining us on the board and contributing your perspective during our board meetings. You will find that there are opportunities to contribute in significant ways. Alumni and undergraduates gather at an after-work social on January 29 at Big Fred's in Omaha. (Continued on page 2)
