President's Message Letter from the President November is a month to say thank you. Personally, I have many people to thank. Thank you for allowing me to lead this chapter for the past two years.

October 2017 – President’s Message

President's Message Letter from the President One of my favorite things about this time of year is the second-wind our events get from the return of our student chapters from their summer break. Just when the professional chapter board is running out of gas, the students bring back loads of enthusiasm to begin their new program year. Over the [...]

September 2017 – President’s Message

President's Message Letter from the President Judging by the school-bus-choked morning commute, school is once again back in session. We’ve said goodbye to our summer interns and there’s even a hint of a chill in the air to remind us that summer is over. If you’re like me, you’re also welcoming some new graduates to your office.

President's Message Letter from the President If you’re like just about everyone in my office, you are on, coming back from or about to leave for a summer vacation.

    Letter from the President This month’s letter has me preparing for the annual conference in Pittsburgh next month. My company is planning to recruit at the conference for the first time, and suddenly I have to be more deliberate about attending. Deliberate is good though.

Letter from the President If you are reading this, you are in a brave minority. Our crack analytics team (thanks Kimberly!) tells us that only 15% or recipients read the monthly newsletter. However, for every one of you there is another member who reads only the special events emails. So, we’re doing a couple things this month to increase the [...]
