2020: A Year That We Will Never Forget

Image
GOOD EVENING BROTHERS, We hope that everyone is continuing to stay safe and healthy during these unprecedented times! It is easy to say that the year 2020 (and to this current day), has been one of the strangest periods of time in Delta Sigma Pi, as well as United States history.  In the blink of an eye, we went from our normal, busy working lives to suddenly a world filled with uncertainty, fear, virtual get togethers, virtual offices, mask & vaccination mandates, and so on and so forth. The COVID pandemic has quite literally affected every individual, family, school, and/or business in some shape or form across the globe. From the bottom of our hearts, we want every Brother to know that you have been in our thoughts & prayers throughout this entire worldwide pandemic era. Please do not hesitate to reach out to members of our Fraternity if you need anything at all; even simply someone to talk to. #WeAre always there for a Brother in need! NOW, to end this post on an even more

Coming Changes

During the 6/26 executive board meeting the way in which we go about inviting people to our events was discussed in detail. Historically the chapter has relied on the use of Evite.com to distribute invites.  However we have seen a decline in responses to these invites and a decline in attendance.  This could be due in part to younger alumni members using different channels of communication as well as an increasing amount of e-mail address that may no longer be active. As a result the executive board has decided to begin utilize Facebook for inviting people to chapter events..  As a central hub for communications using Facebook to plan and promote chapter events is expected to yield positive results, raise attendance as well as increase our invite audience.  Additionally, Facebook events can be deeply integrated in to the current website to enable unified communications between platforms helping to ensure the information you read about our events is accurate no matter where you read
