BGS Student Leadership Forum Alumni:
The planned Leadership Forum Reunion has unfortunately not had the response that Beta Gamma Sigma had anticipated and hoped-for. Thus, the Society regrets to inform all our past Forum participants that we are cancelling the Reunion. We would have loved to visit with all of you at this Reunion but realize that your schedules and priorities make attending this event unfeasible for the vast majority.
However, we still hope you can and will be involved with BGS going forward – and especially this year as we celebrate the Centennial. In addition to participating in the BGS is Everywhere photo contest, please check out the Centennial page on our website at www.betagammasigma.org/centennial to find out information about our other programs including BGS Gives Back (recording of your volunteer service), Meet the Leaders of Business Centennial Speaker Series and our monthly Centennial B-Zine, electronic news magazine which provides updates on all the various Centennial programs and activities.
We hope you have downloaded your own copy of our Centennial mascot, Professor Elwell (the owl) and plan to take pictures with him as you travel and engage in your various activities over the next several months as part of our BGS Is Everywhere photo contest. If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to download your picture of Professor Elwell at http://www.betagammasigma.org/centennial/profelwell.pdf and join in the contest.
Additionally, we still want to provide you access to the SLF Alumni network and will be creating an expanded directory of SLF alums. Be watching your emails in the next several weeks for information about this directory.
The Committee of your peers that worked on this Reunion should be applauded for all their efforts over the last year. They had planned a worthwhile, engaging and fun program. With the cancellation of the Reunion, they now ask you to get involved with Beta Gamma Sigma in another way. The BGS Gives Back project is asking each BGS member to register on a special website and record the hours of service they provide during the Centennial year – whether it’s service as a scout leader, marathon runner, volunteer for another civic organization, etc. They hope you will get involved. Log on to: http://www.betagammasigma.org/centennial/bgsgivesback.html for details and then follow that link to register and record your volunteer hours (either throughout the year or as an estimate).
Various BGS members and alumni groups will also be volunteering this October during National Volunteer Month. How about you? Would you commit to get involved in a service project in your community on October 27 or some other day that month and let BGS know by recording your participation? Let’s see how many Student Leadership Forum alumni will commit to Give Back as part of the BGS Centennial Celebration. Look for more details soon.
Again, we’re disappointed that we won’t be seeing you this Fall at the Leadership Forum Reunion but hope to see you in the future at other Beta Gamma Sigma events – and hear from you for the directory and anytime you have a significant career experience you wish to share with us.
Our best to each of you. We look forward to your involvement in the Centennial in these other ways.
