Brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi, Chapter Sponsors, and Directors of Bands,
I hope the start to your school year has been full of the joy of being in person and playing MUSIC! In order to help you throughout the semester, you can find information for the 2022 – 2023 school year here: 2022 – 2023 Fall Update. Please take time during your Chapter Meeting to review this document with important updates and reminders, including information about Membership Calendars, The Founders’ Circle Leadership Development Program, and our Strive for Five Recruitment Initiative. This will help ensure a strong start to the school year! If after reviewing the PowerPoint you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the National Council by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
*As a reminder – the Chapter Personnel report, Chapter Fee, and your Active Member dues are due TOMORROW, September 30th! If you need assistance, please contact National Headquarters at 403-372-2333 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm central time.*
While most chapters are operating in person, if your chapter needs to operate virtually for any reason, your chapter can utilize the PIVOT Guidance document as needed. The National Council knows that each campus continues to have their own unique procedures in place for virtual operations. It is our hope that the information outlined in PIVOT! continues to be easily adaptable to every Chapter’s situation. If your university moves to virtual operations during the school year, we ask that each Chapter send any official documentation from your university to our Health and Safety team at email@example.com. Additionally, we are watching the ever evolving Hurricane Ian. Please reach out if your chapter has been impacted by the storm and needs any assistance or deadline extensions!
Linked below is an application for those interested in serving Kappa Kappa Psi on the national level, helping to replace open positions on current national committees, as well as committees that will be preparing for the 2023 National Convention. The application will outline details on various roles, time commitments, whether traveling may be involved, and our volunteer expectations.
Application will close October 23, 2022 at 11:59 pm CST.
*Note: To be considered for the National Nominations Committee, please submit your application by October 10, 2022 at 11:59 pm CST.
If you want to review what current committees have been doing, please see their reports and charges here: 2021 – 2023 National Committees
More than anything, I hope this fall that as a member of Kappa Kappa Psi, you will take the time to rededicate yourself to the ideals of the order, lean in heavily to our ritualistic values, and be intentional about living our purposes in your band programs. If we can do these 3 things – then we are working together to reCHARGE our Brotherhood and build a better Kappa Kappa Psi.
On behalf of the entire Kappa Kappa Psi National Leadership Team, I hope that you have a fantastic start to your academic year, and we wish you the best of luck on your upcoming performance season!
Striving with you,
48th National President of Kappa Kappa Psi
