As we prepare for the 2021 National Convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan in just a few weeks, we are also preparing for the next biennium of service as we reCharge our Brotherhood and find our new normal following the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on our fraternity.
Now, more than ever, we need Brothers who are willing to stand up and answer the call to serve Kappa Kappa Psi as we work to support our 217 chapters and 5,000+ active members across the country. Many of our chapters are smaller than ever before. Some chapters only have Brothers who were initiated during COVID. Our chapters, our Brothers, and our band programs will need us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them as they return to in person operations.
As part of this national call for volunteers, below is an application for those interested in serving Kappa Kappa Psi on the national level. We will be looking for BOTH active and alumni brothers interested in serving as National Committee Members, Colony Advisors, Leadership Speakers, and more. The application will outline details on various roles, time commitments, whether traveling may be involved, and our volunteer expectations.
Application will close July 25, 2021.
This application will be open through National Convention, and Brothers will be notified in August of the outcome of the application process. If you are interested in serving, but are not sure about the right fit for you, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or find me at National Convention to chat about how you can best serve Kappa Kappa Psi.
Also included in the volunteer application will be the option to be a part of the Kappa Kappa Psi Leadership Cohort. This program will work to provide interested alumni brothers with tools and leadership skills to take the next step in their Kappa Kappa Psi leadership journey – whether that might be a desire to serve as a National Committee Chair, District Governor, National Officer, Alumni officer, or some other role. This cohort will be a year long, and will run September 2021 – June 2022, with a new cohort of individuals in September 2022 – June 2023. It is my sincere hope that providing this opportunity for our alumni Brothers will help to create the next generation of fraternity leadership.
I hope you will look at this application and think about ways you can continue to serve Kappa Kappa Psi and our band programs. For many of you, there may be other ways beyond this application in which you can continue to serve, and I encourage you to think about how you can reCharge your commitment to our purposes and our values. Every Brother has the ability to make an impact to further our mission. I am excited to see so many of you IN PERSON in Grand Rapids, Michigan at our National Convention!
