Minutes from business meeting, August 21, 2007

There were several issues on the agenda for this meeting.

A.) This meeting constituted the annual meeting of the Alumni Association and so, elections were held and new officers were elected. The new officers for the Alumni Association are:

    President: Marty Hoke, (mhoke@uline.com)
    Vice-President: Don Reinbold, (zax2@charter.net)
    Secretary: Andy Ellinger, (aellinger@wi.rr.com)
    Treasurer: Bob Hazod, (robert_hazod@yahoo.com)

B.) Tom Boelk reported on the Leadership Seminar in Memphis. He said that it was a larger than expected turnout and was really worthwhile to attend. Other than having his luggage lost for a few days, he had a great time.

C.) Final revisions to the bylaws were submitted and ratified.

D.) Dr. Tisa Mason, designated Greek contact person for UWW, is inviting members of the alumni to participate in some “think tank” conversations that will take place this year about how best to institute reforms to improve the relationship between the university and the Greek community. These conversations will be based on the report issued by the national consultants who conducted a study of Greek relations at UWW last March. We’ll give more details about how/when these conversations will occur as we know them.

E.) The bulk of the meeting was devoted to preparing for next week’s meeting between the alumni and Jarod Holt, the representative from HQ who is coming to discuss re-colonization, the timeline the Internationals envision for it, and what the alumni role will be in the process.

The meeting with Jarod Holt will be held on Tuesday, August 28, 2007, at 7:00 pm in the Picasso room of the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center, 5311 Howell Avenue, Milwaukee, WI. Suggested attire is semi-formal, preferably suits and ties. Please email Marty (mhoke@uline.com) if you have any questions or concerns.

We hope and encourage as many brothers attend this meeting as possible, not only so that more people can listen to Jarod’s presentation and get answers to any questions you might have, but also to show HQ how much support there is among the alumni for re-colonizing the chapter. Please try to attend, if you can, and alert as many other brothers as possible about this meeting. It’s an important one, and we hope to see you there.
