July 2016 Satrap’s Corner

Greetings Brothers,

I am here with July’s Satrap’s Corner, Part 2!  Here’s a behind-the-scenes look into Mid-America Province Business!

I am so excited for those Collegiate Brothers about to attend the Leadership Symposium in Albuquerque, New Mexico!  Please tell us all about it when you get back!

This month, we had our first conference call with the Collegiate Development Committee!  We had representation from 100% of our collegiate chapters!  This brings me a lot of confidence in the Brothers that were elected to lead our collegiate chapters.  Every month, we will have a call during which the collegiate chapters will provide updates on what’s going on with their chapters and ask any questions they have.  It provides a forum for collegiates to turn to each other for support and guidance as we continue to grow as chapters and one unified province.  Every month, we will also have a “topic discussion” during which our “guest speaker” will discuss a relevant topic.  This month, Vice Satrap Patrice Davis talked about Risk Management and did an excellent job!

Other committees met this month as well.  The Fundraising Committee is planning a fundraiser/social event for Friday night of conclave to raise money for Mid-America Province.  The Awards Committee has developed several new awards in an effort to recognize more Brothers and chapters for all of their contributions to the province and the Fraternity-at-large.  Historian Jill Shah will be presenting these awards during Fall conclave.  The Graduate Development/Scholarship, Ritual and Communications committees will be having their first conference calls in the very near future!  The Auditing and Legislative Committees will be having their second conference calls in the near future as well.

As a reminder, Historian Jill Shah is still collecting submissions for the 10-Pin design contest.  These pins will be earned by Brothers who attend 10 MAP conclaves, and it’s a great way to make an impact on MAP’s history!  Submit designs to Jill at kymaphistorian@gmail.com.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Thanks for reading and I will be back next month for another “Satrap’s Corner!”
