New 2011 - 2012 Regional Directors Announced


Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity

SigEp Officers and Volunteers,

I hope you are all enjoying the summer. I would like to introduce you to the recent additions to our staff as well as make you aware of staff members serving in new roles.

First, the 2011-2012 Regional Directors arrived this week. The newest additions to the Headquarters staff began their nine-week Summer Development Program on Monday. This training will prepare them for a year of service to your chapter.

Regional directors support the Fraternity by providing services and resources to chapter volunteers and undergraduates. Their training focuses on chapter recruitment, member development, leadership and finance. The staff exists to support you, so please take advantage of the time you have with your Regional Director— he can be a great resource for you and your chapter.

We have assembled an extraordinary team of diverse and talented Regional Directors. They will be reaching out to volunteers and undergraduates in their regions soon. Share your goals with your RD and let him know where you need support. He’ll be interested in learning more about your chapter’s fall recruitment plan, Balanced Man Scholarship, and member development program.

Check out our website to find your Regional Director’s contact information and a brief bio. This should also give you an opportunity to call, text, or shoot him a quick email welcoming him to his region and introducing him to your chapter.

Second, I am excited to welcome a number of last year’s traveling staff members to our Richmond staff. Tyler Boggess, Drake ’10, and Josh Hodnichak, Case Western Reserve ’10 have accepted roles as Chapter Services Directors. Tyler and Josh will be responsible for managing the RD team and supporting our chapters, volunteers, and district governors across the country.

Beaux Carriere, Charleston ’10, has accepted a role on our Volunteer Services Team. Beaux is responsible for supporting AVCs across the country, especially those at our newest chapters and those looking at major housing and fundraising projects.

Trent Patterson, Wichita State ’10, is our new Leadership Programs Manager. Trent is responsible for execution of SigEp’s Leadership Continuum programs, primarily EDGE. Over the past two years, funding and support for EDGE has declined. The addition of Trent and the increase in program funding will allow us to provide more support to volunteer facilitators and offer an EDGE program to more of our members.

Contact information for these gentlemen is available here.

Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for SigEp. I hope to see many of you at Conclave in Phoenix, from August 10-14. As always, I welcome any feedback or suggestions you have on how we can better support our alumni and undergraduates.

I hope you are having a terrific summer, and that you are excited for another great year for Sigma Phi Epsilon.

Fraternally,

Andrew Lemens
Fraternity Operations Director
