Alpha Delta Phi Summit Follow-up
Reported by: OMS

Brothers,

Thank you to all who participated in the June 23rd Summit. We had a great turn out! Over 80 brothers attended in person or over the phone, while many more could not attend due to conflicts. Please click here to view the presentation.

As discussed at the meeting, it is time to move forward and start planning for the Chapter's return to campus. What can you do to help?

1. Join the Board or volunteer your time to help (as available). The Board will be focused on 4 key initiatives in the near term, which are summarized at the end of this message

2. Provide your updated contact info, and help us connect with other brothers. We realize we need to do a better job of communicating (one of our key initiatives). We will provide a link to update your contact info in our database in the coming weeks, so please take the time to complete this.

3. Pay your annual dues today! We are maintaining dues at $50 per academic year, but encourage and appreciate higher amounts. Dues help support maintenance of the house and property, and can be paid in two ways. (Also, we are turning the ecommerce back on so that dues and donations can be received through the website again. We will post here when it is fully functional)

1)The Illini Alpha Delt newsletter will be out shortly, and a dues form will be included (Please provide your home address if you haven't received a copy of this over the past few years)
2)Send your check to: ILLINOIS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OF ALPHA DELTA PHI, P O BOX 969, MORTON GROVE, IL 60053

Thanks for your interest and support! Once again, please review the initiatives below, and reach out appropriately to volunteer your time and talents. Please direct any other comments or questions to Tom Trail (tomtrail@sbcglobal.net / 708-837-4411) or Danny Martin (dannymartin4@gmail.com / 847-867-2840).

Xaipe,

Key Near-term Alumni Board Initiatives

1. Recolonization

Mission: Rebuild the Chapter with brothers who embody the legacy and tradition of Alpha Delta Phi, the culture of the alumni brotherhood, and the moral, social, and intellectual qualities necessary to compete effectively on campus. The ultimate goal is to establish a chapter with perpetual motion, such that within 12 months of recolonization, this committee can operate purely in an advisory capacity to the undergraduate re-founders.

Activities / Needs: Develop timeline for recolonization and key milestones. Study past recolonization efforts and identify keys to success and pitfalls. Engage with professional advisors. Define qualities of re-founding brothers and identify target population. Solicit recommendations and reach out to specific individuals. Define support structure and alumni engagement during and after recolonization effort. Establish targets and success metrics for alumni committee and undergraduates.

ADPhi Summit
Reported by: OMS

Brothers,
On April 1, 2015 the Alumni Board of the Illinois Chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi suspended operations of the undergraduate chapter. Subsequently, a second decision was made to close the fraternity physical plant following the end of the 2014-2015 school year. For over 104 years our beloved chapter has produced the leaders of tomorrow, and the gentlemen of today. So while these were deliberated, necessary, and difficult decisions, these were first steps toward returning our chapter back to prominence.

On June 23rd, we will be holding a Summit to discuss the future of the Illinois Alpha Delta Phi. The time is now to address the many challenges that we have moving forward. The Summit will be purely informational, with a presentation and discussion of the possible strategies for returning the fraternity back to the world class organization and physical plant that we all love so dearly. Whichever path we choose will require the time, knowledge and generosity of all alumni, the greatest asset of our fraternity. We must face these challenges Manus Multae Cor Unum, or with many hands and one heart.

Date: Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Time: 6:30-9:00 PM
Location: The Summit will take place at Al Gienko's (Alumni Board's president's) office at 111 West Jackson in the 12th Floor Conference Room. 111 West Jackson is at the corner of Jackson and Clark. The underground parking is in the building off of Clark Street. If you have registered for the event, the parking attendants will have yuour name on a list to validate the parking. Just give them Al Gienko's name and you should be fine.
Below is an agenda for the Summit.
