What is an Official vs. "Unofficial" Event?
Attorney Sean Callan from Fraternal Law Partners gave an eyeopening talk on the difference between an official vs. an "unofficial" event. Spoiler alert: there isn't one. Members were surprised and thankful to learn what the legal risks and ramifications of hosting events entail. We encourage all of our Chapters to watch his talk via our online course on our new E-Learning Center.
Awards, Scholarships and Charters
We acknowledged our Chapters, Members and Volunteers at the 57th Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony. Find a full list of those who walked away with a Charter, plaque or award.
The Phi Sigma Pi Foundation crossed the $300,000 mark in donations to our Capital Campaign! In addition, the Grand Chapter, with a matching donation from Alpha Rho Alumnus Josh Marder, sponsored multiple Leadership in Action Modules with a fun game of Heads or Tails! Blake Antone from the Gamma Eta Chapter won and will get to choose which Module is championed. We also welcomed Charlin Jones-Chávez (Epsilon Mu Chapter) and Natalie Mikkelson (Gamma Epsilon Chapter) to the Foundation Board of Directors.
