Calendar website stuff
Ok, so here's the deal, I am going to keep this public calendar of ALL events going on with this chapter that come to my knowledge:


If you want access so you can add stuff by yourself, email or comment and I'll add you in like 5 seconds. If there's something that seriously shouldn't be public information on it, tell me and I'll remove it.

The fact is that the website and calendar has always sucked. Every time we kept a calendar or blog it was an unnecessary inconvenience to the officers at the time to go way out of their way to get access and put something on the site that was made with way left field architecture just to have it dropped by officers who couldn't care less about it next semester and no consistent management of the site. This has happened multiple times and has shown that redesigning the site just starts the cycle over again.

This one can be embedded into other sites, the people who schedule the events don't have to be the ones to post them, and it has reasonable security.

Feel free to use it. If you don't like it, I don't care.

National Convention
Posted from the alpha phi omega community:

The following is a message from the 2006 National Convention Coordinator,


Hello, my name is David Keely and I am the Convention Coordinator for the upcoming 2006 Alpha Phi Omega National Convention in Louisville, KY. As you know, this will take place at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville December 27th through the 30th, 2006.

The National Fraternity and the Convention Planning Committee are working hard and doing their best to plan the biggest and best convention the fraternity has ever seen! To do that, we need one more thing: YOU!

Now is the time to start planning for convention – even though it’s over 4 months away! The first thing to do is to start thinking about how you will fund convention. Some schools will pay for some or all of your registration. Some chapters will pay for the registration for the voting delegates. But for most of you out there – you’re on your own! So now is the time to start planning those fund-raising projects!

The cost for registration is $65 dollars for students and advisors. The cost for the Fellowship and Awards banquets are $30 and $35 each – of course you’ll want to go to those! The hotel will be approximately $80 per night including taxes for quad occupancy (sorry, no more than four per room!). Throw in some food and that works out to around $250 per person not including transportation to and from Louisville. It might sound like a lot but think about what you get for that money: the ability to help shape the future of the fraternity, an opportunity to meet brothers from all over the country, attend informative and fun workshops lead by the best speakers that the fraternity and the community have to offer and a chance to have a really, really good time!

My suggestion to you is this: start thinking now about raising some money to help offset some of the costs for your chapter’s delegates. Whether this is something that the whole chapter could work on, the exec board or a committee made for this purpose – get started NOW!

Let’s get the discussion rolling about what to do – why don’t we start a discussion thread where you post your fundraising ideas and questions here? Anyone have any great ideas?

I can’t wait to see you in Louisville!

In the true spirit of brotherhood,

English Conversation Club
Firstly, does anyone care to do this project? I had a hard time getting ppl together to go to this simple, 1 hour long project. I don't have much of a will to organize it again if it's gona be the same responce from us. But still, this is a GREAT project, and apparently they have a shortage on english speakers at this point. Common, are you gona abondon you're international friends :(

Secondly, they're having it tommorow and could use more ppl (they had 28 international students, and 20 english speakers there last week). I haven't even tried to get it approved, send out an email, yadayda. So whatever, sup to y'all, I'll probably just start going to it as an individual if no one else has the time or desire to do it.

Fall namesake
Some of you may already have heard this, but Jerry Schroeder, a Past National President has been selected as the namesake for fall 2005 pledge classes. He is currently the Deputy Director of Security for the Department of Justice.

I met him at the convention in Denver in December and he was very nice and a very funny guy. It helped that I was sitting front row center on the legislative floor. Having side conversations with the chairman is an interesting experience!

By the way, Jerry marks the third straight year that a brother from Region III has been selected for this honor. Further proof that R3 rocks!

ECC call for action
Today at the ECC I think I was the only APOer there. Okay, it's really my fault things were that way (maybe a little some other ppl), but they were actually just a bit short on English speakers there (that pretty much means more 1 on 2 parings), and we could stand to do a little better on this.

Hey look, I've sat and had a conversation with ppl from 5 different nations. This is a really cool thing to do and you can learn a lot. So, lets see lots of ppl there in 2 weeks, the next time we're scheduled to do it as APO.

Hey y'all! So there is a little rumor that there aren't that many people going to woodchop Saturday. Here's the deal... It is a really worthy project. All of the wood that we chop goes to people who cannot afford heat this winter. Remember how cold it is outside? Imagine not being able to turn that thermostat up. Imagine having small children who were shivering so much they couldn't sleep. Now, imagine what a pile of firewood could do for those people. I know that it is early, but Ted is bringing awesome donuts! Also, for those of you who aren't there... don't be surprised if you get a morning phone call ;) JK! Seriously, come to woodchop this Saturday at 7:45 in front of Reynolds!

************ New Project ***********
Okay y'all, I'm really excited about this one. Here's what I got so far:

At bookcheck I was contacted by by the director (I think) of the "International Office" about something they hold for the international students starting out here that don't know english well. I think it is the "English Conversation Club" (don't hold me to the details), but the idea is that they have a bunch of regular people come and just talk in ordinary English (which is a bit different that what you might say, learn in a class) with the international students.

Its Friday 3:30, goes for about an hour, and she said they could use a small group. I'm thinking we need to get together a group of like 3-5 ppl to go do it this Friday.

They'll continue doing every week this month too I think. They have other events as well, which i hope we can get involved in. Also, think of it like this, there are something like 2,000 international students on campus, with a lot of those just getting here, that's hundreds and hundreds of people unfamiliar to the school and the area, looking for things to do, and we have a project where we have an opportunity to just sit and talk with them for an hour. In case you haven't noticed, the big red rush flag should be popping up in your head right about now. And I've had it pointed out to me that we've had other international students looking into our orginization before (not to mention that many of these people are here for a full 4 years), so I believe citizenship matters aren't a problem. Honestly, you couldn't make up a project better for rush.

If you're available and would be in for doing this leave a comment.

Picnic Specs
What is the date, time, location of the annual summer picnic funness? I want to come over for it, but I need to know when to ask off. I can't access webmail at the library (and internet at home won't be up till mid-august) so don't bother telling me an e-mail was sent out about it.

thanks bros,

Hey guyses :) I hope everyone is having a good summer.

I've been planning stuff for the fall semester and it came to my attention that our adopt-a-highway contract was not renewed last spring. Therefore...if we want to keep doing adopt-a-highway we need to re-adopt one. I'll definitely ask the whole brotherhood what they think about this when school starts up...but I have a feeling the adoption process might take a while...so I wanted to see if I could go ahead and determine the general interest. If everyone hates doing adopt-a-highway then I guess we can just find other projects, it is nice though in that it is a project we can do whenever we choose (easy way to add more hours if people need them at the end of a semester) and we only HAVE to do it once every 3 months. Plus it means we get our name on a sign on the highway and its just a good thing to do in general...everyone likes a litter-free highway :)
I appreciate your input :)

hey APOers!

I just wanted to see if we could collaborate some more information on nationals here. I'm down to go and really look forward to it (since I missed the last one). But what I heard is that we're gona get stuff together as a group for maybe hotels and stuff and getting there will pretty much be people getting their own airline tickets or something. I can't find much on the nationals website, so comment anything you know about our plans.

The sooner you get something like plane tickets the cheaper they can be. So it looks like thisCollapse ) is the genral range of what we might be looking at.

Before I was thinking I might could so some of the summer orientations, but plans changed and I won't be in raleigh. But I might try orginizing some fundraisers early next semester myself.

so till next time, LFS like woah y'all

Just out of curiosity, how active is the summer frat? It'd be great to hang out with you crazy kids, but I'd like to know if service gets done.
