It's That Time
It's that time again. Initiations, elections, philanthropies, and even more are all happening across the TKE Nation. Here are a few simple questions to ask yourself to ensure everyone is on the same page.
- Have you held officer elections?
If so, you need to update the Module with the contact information for everyone. Even if you have been an officer but are changing positions or staying for another term, we need to have confirmation your email and phone number are current. The Grammateus, Prytanis, and Chapter Advisor all have the ability to update the officer information. For additional help, see this video.
- Have all candidates been initiated?
If the answer is yes, we need to be sure their initiation date and fee have been collected, as well as their contact information, scroll number and any other pertinent facts are submitted. This will make their badge and certificate come quicker, they are added to news and events updates, and much more. The Module is where you log all of this info. If you need help getting your materials - contact us.
- Are you having difficulties collecting dues?
TKE has partnered with GreekBill to assist you in not only collecting money for your chapter, but also utilizing their resource to create budgets, file taxes and take away some of the leg work and difficulties the Crysophylos incurs while in the position. Take a look at the information and email them to get started.
- Did the chapter perform service or philanthropic events?
These all need to be recorded in the Module. Whether you performed 5 or 500 hours or raised $20 or $2,000, the important thing is that you have helped build a better world with your efforts. If you need help logging your efforts, contact us or watch the following video. We also would like to recognize you by including these on the website or in The TEKE Magazine.
- How can you get your group recognized in TKE communication?
It's very simple - email us information about events or news. Answer the questions of who, what, when, why, where and how AND include pictures of high quality (no facebook images please).
- Are we guaranteed a spot for Conclave 2013 in Washington, D.C.?
Yes. The next Conclave Savings Plan payment is due November 30. This fee, broken up in four installments, ensures a total of $1,000 to be used for your attendance at Conclave. The Black Book requires at least one representative per chapter, but the money can help send as many people as desired with an additional discount. Check back for updates on the exciting events Conclave 2013 will provide.
As always, if you have questions about anything above or general needs, don't hesitate to email
or call us. We hope the semester has gone well for you so far and you are looking forward to a great remainder of the year.
