We then went to reevaluating our potential MC’s!

  • There were several concerns about how large the upcoming class would be! Several thought we were not being picky enough in our requirements. We would need a lot of big brothers and several of our members have resigned or are becoming conditional this next semester. Most importantly, it is an honor to be a member of Kappa and we should treat it as such!
  • After careful consideration, we offered bids to 25 new candidates!! All of these candidates exemplified the pillars of Kappa Kappa Psi and put extensive effort into learning about our chapter and into their essay questions!

We will need help this week!

  • Sign up here to deliver their bid! Keep it secretive!
  • If you want to be a big brother, you can sign up here! Pls!

Later on in the meeting, our wonderful officers provided our chapter with their officer reports. So much has been accomplished this semester! Thank you officers for all your hard work and I can’t wait to see what this next semester’s officers can provide for this chapter and it’s success!

After discussing why you all should go to NatCon! We had a well thought out seminar on helping out Caroline O’Malley with her startup pepband down in Pueblo! Here are some major points! (You can read the full minutes here)

  • Exposing 10 high school students from Swallows Chapter Academy to music!
  • Pueblo has limited resources in terms of music supplies, difficulties
  • We should buy permanent items for the students, not rentals so that we aren’t entitled to rent for these students every year
  • Although we have a large budget, it will be tight because of Convention front
  • Final Discussed Idea: $750 to give to Caroline, everything has to be permanent, buying school-owned instruments, stay within school, we will reimburse, have her send us everything she wants to buy, give receipts, transactions will be posted online to chapter, everything will directly contribute to playing music
  • Vote to approve money towards Caroline’s Project: Motion passed!!

band GIF

We then voted on the theme for Band Banquet!

After considering several awesome ideas with crowd favorites of “lamp” and the trio, “Clue (the game)”, “Clue (the movie)”, and “Murder Mystery”, we picked . . . drum roll please. . .(we can’t tell you yet because it’s going to be a surprise)! It’s going to be super awesome everybody so talk to Carrie or Conner if you want to help out!
