Two Alumni brothers from the Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter traveled to Minneapolis Oct. 12-14 to attend the fall LEAD School in the North Central Province.
Plenty of networking and socializing with old friends and new connections was had. There was discussion about Ritual and lots of new things happening with the fraternity. Especially exciting were some updates with the Leadership Foundation and the new, Presidents’ Academy.
One of the Day’s break-out sessions was an alumni panel that Des Moines’ own, David participated on.
At the Great Plains Regional meeting and awards presentation, Des Moines’ own, Jody received an award for being the best District Director in the region.
The Alpha Iowa Chapter at Drake University was awarded the most outstanding chapter in the nation.
In other news… be sure to mark your calendars (and check out the calendar page of this weblog) for the November happy hour on Thurs. 11/15.
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.
