Fall 2012 Update from Gamma Alumni Assc #4


Quick update on the following topics:

Chapter Updates

The Chapter is a month into the Fall Semester. Total number of Fall bids accepted was 16. They currently have 12 men still in the pledge semester after making a concerted effort to clearly outline the financial and membership commitments required to be a brother in good standing with Gamma.  While the goal is to continue the upward trend in overall numbers, we support taking this approach in the pledge semester as ultimately this will make the membership stronger.
