New Chapter Officers Elected. Chapter Moves Forward.

The University of Tennessee SigEps held officer elections on November 10. The new chapter officers elected are:

New Chapter Officers:

This was the first officer election since the chapter review last year. The Chapter has made great progress in the last year. They have adopted the Balanced Man Program. In addition, chapter strength improved to over 70 members. They also have continued to improve all year in other areas.

The Balanced Man Program builds balanced men with a four-year development program rather than a one-term pledge period. Consequently, members graduate ready to begin their professional careers.

Phillip A. Cox Volunteer Institute

There’s still time to register for the Phillip A. Cox Volunteer Institute! We’ll be hosting the program for your area at North Carolina-Charlotte on November 13.

Whether you are a new volunteer, a seasoned veteran or you’re interested in beginning your volunteer journey, this event will provide the information you need to positively impact the lives of your undergraduates.

The program is free of charge to participants, and includes breakfast and lunch.

More than 240 volunteers have been impacted by the Cox Institute. Here’s what some of them had to say about this program:

“I learned so much info that I need to share with the rest of my board. I wish that there were three or four more people from my board there so we could catch everything.” Jay Bilunas, Purdue ’99.

“I have been to numerous sessions over the years. The Phillip A. Cox Volunteer Institute is content rich and time efficient, much to my liking. After all these years if I can take notes on ideas and updates to bring back to our AVC in Cincinnati, you know there is something to gain in one day. You have a great new program here.”John Abraham, Cincinnati ’77, Order of the Golden Heart Recipient.

“Being a bit disengaged from the national Fraternity over the last several years, the Cox Institute was the perfect ‘catch up’ for me. I feel well equipped to jump back in and be helpful to the undergrads.”Mark Christensen, North Dakota ’95.

Please join us for a day completely devoted to you, SigEp’s most valuable resource — our volunteers!
