This month’s #4gr8rchapters focus is Ritual and Living the Ideals. The idea is to devote some time to going over the ritual and discuss how to conduct it most effectively and/or what it and/or the ideals really means for us as sisters.  Some things you can do to fulfill this focus are bringing the ritual items to a closed meeting and discussing them, re-reading the ideals and having your members say what they mean to them, and recognizing sisters that live out the ritual or ideals in their daily lives. Remember to post a (non-secretive) photo to the Focus on Five Facebook page.

Presidents, get started on your Fall Activity Reports NOW! They are due by December 1st.

To obtain the white stripe for Focus on Five, your chapter needs to present the “For Greater Bands” Award to two members of your band program who are NOT in Tau Beta Sigma or Kappa Kappa Psi.  One will be for best instrumental performer and one for best visual performer . This is not due until June 1 but many chapters like to present it at their band banquet and you will need to allow about a month between selecting a winner and presenting the award to give Headquarters enough time to get you the certificates.

The 2018 Midwest District Convention will held from April 6th to 8th at Missouri State University. Please congratulate the Epsilon Psi chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi on their successful bid!  Check back soon for more details and start planning now!

Congrats to all Midwest chapters on getting their MEP, Constitution, and Budget turned in and fully approved by the District Council on time!
