Grand Council Goals: If elected as GVPA, I would like to develop avenues to build on the Collegiate to Alumni transition to help capture the collegiate member prior to going on clinical rotations/residency/graduation. It will also be important to capture the needs/desires of the Alumni members to keep them engaged and involved with the Fraternity through regular communication. T An important part of the role is also identifying and fostering the reactivation of Alumni Chapters and initiating new Alumni Chapters as it helps to grow our base. We also need to to initiate Alumni involvement as it relates to a process of developing a succession plan for the sustainability of the Fraternity as it relates to the Grand Council.
