B rothers, we're proud to say that more than 100 of you have joined in supporting our chapter members through the H.G. Menke Mentoring Program. It was launched in 2014 with the great assistance of Seth Ellis '05 X1700 to better support our youngest brothers with personal and career guidance. At the time there were no existing programs to provide these services, so Seth and others simply got it done themselves, with our deep gratitude. We are now very happy to announce that Lambda Chi Alpha Inter- national has finally caught up with us and launched a new, compre- hensive mentoring program for all chapters and alumni members, the LCA Compass Mentoring Program. It offers many of the same advantages as our Menke program and more, at lower cost to the board and easier enrollment for you. Your participation gives Chi Zeta chapter members the opportuni- ty to grow personally, scholastically, and professionally. It is so ben- eficial for an undergraduate to hear about how an alumnus arrived in a career from their college major. For the alumni, as the end of the 2019 school year is drawing near, now is a great time to talk to chapter members who may fit your hiring needs for internships or full-time employment. ere are more than 60 chapter mem- bers registered in the mentoring program, and more to come—plus many recent graduates as well. If you haven't yet joined in as an alumni mentor, now is the time. If you have been a Menke member, you need to re-register now for the new LCA Compass program to stay involved (memberships cannot be transferred over). And it's simple to do using LCA's on- line portal! Step One: If you haven't already done so to access the many oth- er great resources offered, register now for Lambda Chi's alumni and undergrad support network, LCA ONE.

Step Three: Your registration will connect you to all Lambda Chis across the country, which might be what you want. But if you want to restrict your involvement to just our Chi Zeta members, that's easy too.
