Recent Happy Hour, Fraternity Happenings

Last week on February 18, The Des Moines – Central Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi held its usual monthly happy hour at Firetrucker Brewery in Ankeny, IA.

2016-02 HH

It was a good opportunity for local brothers to get together and discuss chapter things and fun things… both being included in the discussions of the upcoming Halsey Volley Ball & Basketball Tournament in late February. Also celebrated was recent Iowa State alum, David, (pictured 3rd from left) being awarded the Great Plains Regional COY the previous weekend at the North Central Provincial LEAD Conference in Minneapolis, MN.

National Fraternity Notes:

The Board Meeting Minutes have been posted from the January 2016 National Board of Directors Meeting. Highlights include:
– Retired the Golden Knights Ceremony for future Grand Chapter Congresses
– Updated the risk management policy to show that St. Louis Alumni Chapter, due to grandfathering policy, remains the only chapter (collegiate or alumni) allowed to sell or serve alcohol for fundraising purposes

Julie Stackhouse, Drake, was named as the 2016 Career Achievement honoree.
