Advisor Update, Oct. 26

10.30.2009

Dear Advisors,

We are very interested in how your chapters are doing and the role you are playing in their success. With the new term around the corner it is important we make sure we are all on the same page. Just send us a time you want to talk and I or Becca will make it happen.

Below is the advisor update that went out last month…Please look it over. Also, thank you to those of you who responded and will be staffing BOTC. The planners are working hard. As stated in last month’s Advisor Update, we will have a conference call the week before the program to go over what your responsibilities will be. It’s going to be a great weekend.

We sent out the year’s calendar and the new chapter standards in August.

We have been and will continue to send out updates each month with information you need regarding regional programming. If you have questions or need more support regarding your chapter, please do not hesitate to ask Becca and I or contact your Lead Advisors.

Thank you for all your time and energy. Without you the teens would not be able to accomplish what they do.

Thanks, Steven
