2019 Board of Directors Elections Results

Dear Brothers,

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with your beloved friends and family. I’m writing to you all today to ask that you please join me in congratulating the following Brothers for their election or re-election as members of the Alumni Board of Directors:

  • Chris Burke (Treasurer)

  • Paul Kirkegaard

  • Ed Wallace (Newly Elected, Incoming Secretary)

Brothers Kirkegaard, Burke, and Wallace will join Brothers Jonas, Maxwell, and myself to comprise the 2019 Alumni Board of Directors for our chapter. They will begin their two-year term effective immediately. We truly appreciate those of you who took the time to vote in our recent election. Per our chapter Bylaws, the next election will take place in Fall of this year (2019), where Brothers Jonas, Maxwell, and I will be up for re-election. If you participated (or intentionally did not participate), please provide us with feedback regarding your voting experience this election cycle. We want to hear your thoughts on the new process in order to seek continuous improvement, and to better reach all of you.

As you may have seen on our social media pages and website, Omega Chapter is celebrating our Centennial year this year! Mark your calendars for Homecoming Weekend (TBD, usually mid-October), and keep an eye out for additional information as we send it out via our website and social media pages. We are planning various events in State College through the weekend (Friday through Sunday). If you have any interest in helping with planning efforts for the event- packed weekend, please reach out to me via the email address below.

With the new Election cycle, I was selected by the other board members to serve as the next Alumni President. I look forward to continuing to serve our chapter with the other board members, alumni advisory board members, our numerous active alumni, and our undergraduate members. I intend to refocus our attention to strengthening the social bonds of brotherhood in the coming months and years. We faced significant challenges recently and I look forward to meeting those and future challenges head on for the betterment of our chapter. I aim to be as transparent as possible, and am always open to questions, comments, and criticism.

If at any point you wish to reach me, please feel free to email me at the address below. For those that prefer to communicate via phone, I will provide my personal cell number upon request. I look forward to meeting more of you and seeing you at our upcoming centennial celebration!

Once again, Congratulations to Brothers Burke, Kirkegaard, and Wallace! Love and Respect,

Aaron Speagle ‘12
Alumni President
