  • Regional Update
    • The Region is looking to put up an alumni table up. If you have any ideas, throw them out there! They are also prepping for a Regional slideshow that would play at Conferences, possibly while people register etc.
    • An idea that was thought of was doing what is called “100 ideas in 100 seconds”. This would showcase ideas from other chapter on how they have been successful, which could help those chapters struggling.
    • Since there is no continental breakfast at the hotel for the Fall Conference, we will be providing a breakfast on Saturday morning. We looked at ordering assorted fruit bowls, assorted muffins, and getting some whole fruit like apples and bananas.
    • There is going to be a Skype meeting with the Regional team, Tuesday, September 16th, at 3:30 in CC117.
