Omaha LEAD was a dream

approximately 8 or so members of the Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi attended the Fall LEAD School in Omaha, Nebraska October 27-28.
Many started their weekend at the Thunderhead Brewing Taproom (opened with help of a small investment by a Deltasig brother). Around 20 or so various alumni sampled brews and brought in food for dinner. Later that night a magic show was enjoyed back at the hotel.

Saturday sessions were good and included presentations by several Des Moines alumni members. The keynote was “1 million dreams”. Lunch was chicken (no surprise there) but there were 3, brief panel discussions focused on the idea of getting to know your brother (elected leadership and others) and well as partly a town hall about the fraternity. This was a new concept and made the lunch time fly by.

After the conference concluded, many college football teams of import won their respective games, and many alumni enjoyed a social evening at PGP, Norm Kromberg’s home. During this social, many thousands of dollars were raised for the Leadership Foundation and the wine flowed.

There was also a handout about the new merchandise policy.

Grand Time at The Republic and Broke, Busted, & Disgusted

Many Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi members (as well as a few collegiates) enjoyed a social at the October Happy Hour 10/19. They met at the newly-opened and highly-acclaimed Republic on Grand (the bar on the top floor of the AC Marriott Hotel in Des Moines’ East Village).
