From Brother Marty Hoke, President of the Alumni Association:
Re: Lambda Chi Alpha Recolonization
Associate Director of Chapter Services Jarod Holt from Lambda Chi Alpha HQ is looking at two possible weekends to come to Wisconsin. He and Director of Chapter Services John Holloway are in the process of scheduling the trip. The weekends they are currently look at are: 8/31 – 9/2 or 9/7 – 9/9. This is just preliminary and we will only get a portion of their visit dedicated to Whitewater (as their trip will be to visit several campuses along the way), but it is a start. Jarod said they are definitely coming to visit with us in Wisconsin, he is trying to work around the schedules of 10 people and will follow-up as soon as possible.
Re: UW-W expands their Greek Life Office
A staff opening at the University has allowed the office to shift responsibilities around for several staff and dedicate for the next year more staff time to the Greek Community (50% FTE). During this next year, the Career & Leadership Development office will take the NIC report recommendations into consideration and develop an overall Greek Life plan and staffing model that will best serve the office and Greek Life. They will then have a national search for the person that will be in part Greek Life focused.
For the coming year the C&LD office has hired Stephanie Hewitt to serve as the primary Greek Life contact for the office. This will mean working directly with the 3 councils, administrative functions and chapter presidents. Stephanie comes with the experience of being a valuable employee for a major corporation, UW-W student, leader and member of the Greek family. She will also be working with the Homecoming Steering Committee and Leadership conferences.
Any questions can be asked here and I will forward them to Jan Bilgen, Associate Director of the Career & Leadership Development office, UW-Whitewater.
