We hope you’re saving the date for the 2016 Global Leadership Summit! The event takes place November 3-6 in Dallas, and the online registration page is now available. Reserve your chapter’s spot before June 20 to receive early bird pricing. Registration includes three nights of room and board, all meals, and educational materials are included. Chapters are responsible for participants’ travel costs.
The GLS is an excellent opportunity for students to engage with the Society and other members. Plus, chapters earn points toward Collegiate Chapter Honor Roll totals for every student sent. Register today—space is filling up fast!
Student Officer Survey Sent
The Student Officer Survey link was sent to all 2015-2016 Student Officers on Wednesday, March 23. Student Officers have until April 22 to submit their responses. Please encourage your Student Officers to complete the survey before the deadline, as it will help us gather feedback on their roles, learn what additional resources they need, and make the overall experience better for future Student Officers.
If you have not already done so, please forward the names, email addresses, and position titles of your Student Officers to your Chapter Manager so they can be included in the survey and future communications. As a reminder, reporting your Student Officers to Global HQ earns your chapter ten points toward your Chapter Honor Roll total.
Updates to New Member Guide
Please note, BGS has updated our New Member Guides, which are included with your chapter’s membership certificate shipment. You’ll notice these booklets now have different cover art featuring the faces of a few of our student members. Despite having four distinct covers, rest assured the content in each New Member Guide is identical, and so they can be given to students at random. If you have additional questions on these booklets, please contact your Chapter Manager.
Collaborate with the BGS Alumni Network
Did you know the BGS Alumni Network consists of 30 international Alumni Chapters, 16 Alumni Networking Groups, and countless other grassroots interest groups around the globe? If you have a chapter or network in your area, feel free to contact the group’s point person to discuss possible collaborations, such as speaker events or networking hours. And even if an alumni group hasn’t been established in your area yet, consider reaching out to your chapter’s alumni members individually by inviting them to your ceremonies or planing an activity together. Remember, alumni members can be a source for panelists, keynotes, and mentors.
For questions or for additional assistance with this process, contact Christina Janoski, Senior Manager of Chapter Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
