Life is pretty simple.
You get out of it what you put in. If you really
want to make strong business and personal
connections with other Fraternity members, you need
to get involved.
The Fraternity is a
volunteer-run organization, and we all depend on each

at any Fraternity or related community event for
inclusion in our group correspondence. (The
Webmaster puts in a special plea here for help!)
- Join a committee!
Whether your interest is with helping to choose our
guest speakers, planning the next tremendous
business or social event, or representing our group
in the community, every activity we do is only as
good as the dedication behind it.
- And Woody
Allen said it best... "showing up is 80 percent of
life". Not only do we want your company, but your
consistent attendance at the monthly meetings helps

that has drained our finances without benefit to the
group. So, even if all you do is show up...
