Thanks to the Ohio Chapters who hosted Convention; Alaska Alpha for their Halloween Bent; and newsworthy items on Tau Bates Gina Blazanin, ND A ’20, and Carrie Ann Smith, WA G ’18
Thank you to our hosts for the 114th Convention
The 114th Convention is in the books! Thank you to everyone who hosted, sponsored, attended, or just hung out with HQ Staff. The event had its quirky moments (see Resolution Committee for info on your hotel assignment), but there was a great amount of intelligent, informative, and timely conversations about the future of the Association and Members. See you next year in Atlanta!
Spooky Bents are everywhere…. ooooooooooo
This super “cool” Halloween decorated Bent photo comes to you courtesy of Alaska Alpha!
If you were part of the ICE Sessions at Convention on how to promote your organization on campus, you might have heard about this suggestion of dressing your Bent for the season or the occasion. Remember to share your picture and tag your members who are shown (with their permission, of course) and use the hashtag #taubetapi! You can also email HQ at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos and newsworthy items. Thanks.
