Report from the Lone Star Conclave

The Lone Star Multi-District Conclave 2009 took place this weekend, February 20-21, on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas located in Richardson, Texas.

Representing the active chapter were Andrew Ivy (GP), Martin Fergus (Philanthropy/Fundraising Chair), and Jack Frazee (House Manager). Jonathan Goodman (Assoc. Scribe & Assit. Alumni Advisor) represented the volunteer alumni leadership.

The Conclave program included general sessions and multiple breakout sessions. Area DGMs and the Area Development Manger delivered reports on the state of the fraternity, presentations on fraternity initiatives such as “Kappa Sigma University” – a leadership development program, and an educational session on fraternity history.

The breakout sessions provided a format for attending actives and alumni to interact and share ideas on topics such as recruitment, risk management, fundraising, awards/recognition, and financial management.

Finally, Texas will host the next Grand Conclave this summer. Please consider joining our active and alumni delegates at the 67th Biennial Grand Conclave, July 22-26, 2009, in San Antonio, Texas.
