Congress was a celebration of all things Deltasig— educational and professional sessions, election of national leaders, including the reelection of Mark Chiacchiari as Grand President, awards recognizing outstanding alumni and collegiate chapters (see page 6), social activities and more.

B Celebrating Our Past… and Looking Ahead. y the time this magazine finds its way to you, the 48th Grand Chapter Congress in Louisville will feel like a long time ago! While time has passed, there will undoubtedly be memories that last forever for the 805 brothers who attended. For me, the 48th GCC will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my first as Grand President. Although, the week was non-stop and physically and emotionally exhausting, I found myself sad when the excitement was over. Admittedly, I was glad I survived! I want to recognize our fabulous Central Office staff who did an outstanding job preparing for and executing the event. I observed firsthand the tremendous amount of effort that goes into planning (and replanning) GCC and we are fortunate to have a dedicated group. I also want to thank the countless brothers who took time away from work, family and/or what little remained of summer break to attend GCC. What struck me, though, were the countless brothers who, driven by the desire to make Deltasig better, went the extra mile and volunteered their time—many without even being asked. There are too many examples to mention, but a few stand out—like the group of brothers who left the Grand President’s Dance to rehearse for the National Honorary Initiation until almost 1 a.m. or those who skipped meals to prepare for the next day or those who ushered people around the hotel between sessions. Undoubtedly, that extra effort by everybody made for a better Congress and for a better Fraternity. I am pleased with what WE accomplished as a Fraternity in Louisville. Our delegates faced some difficult issues and challenged each other to make the best decisions. The educational and historical programming received rave reviews by those that attended. We celebrated significant milestones for individual members and chapters. Additionally, the Leadership Foundation raised $85,000, which will help further the mission of Delta Sigma Pi. Time is already flying by as we start the next biennium stronger than ever. I am proud of what we’ve accomplished so far as “America’s Foremost Business Fraternity,” but our work is never done. There are campuses that would benefit from our presence. There are people in our local and university communities that need our service. And because of this, we need your help and assistance more than ever. During the next biennium, we will engage in a number of initiatives including examining colonization and chapter expansion processes and resources; better defining guidelines for the structuring of regions and the duties of RVPs; reviewing the current national structure that exists around how we perform strategic planning and provide oversight of our committees; continuing to build a relationship with a philanthropic partner; expanding and growing our e-learning solutions; and revising our chapter consultation program to include virtual visits. This list is, by no means, exhaustive. There are so many other items that will be addressed by the Fraternity’s board as well as local leaders and committees in the upcoming two years. To do all of this, we rely heavily on the volunteer efforts of brothers—people just like you. I ask you to consider getting involved by finding an initiative that piques your interest. I, along with the rest of our leadership team (the Board of Directors, committee chairs and members, Regional Vice Presidents, District Directors and staff) welcome the opportunity to work with you. Together, let’s ensure we have plenty of reasons to celebrate when we’re together again in Seattle. Fraternally, Mark A. Chiacchiari Grand President GP Mark Chiacchiari (left) presented PGP Mitch Simmons a plaque recognizing his leadership of the recent Central Office renovation. “Fraternal Forum” allows elected leaders, staff, and interested members to offer updates, viewpoints and commentaries on issues facing the Fraternity.

A “Wild” Summer Job Bryan Patterson, TennesseeKnoxville, has spent the last several summers working for Northern Tier in Canada, a high adventure program of the Boy Scouts of America that offers wilderness canoe trips. This past summer, he was promoted to Atikokan Base Director, a management position, and was responsible for food service, the Trading Posting, outfitting and the base office. He helped train other staff, worked with vendors to keep the base supplied and reviewed paperwork for incoming crews. Brother Patterson says he gained valuable business experience from working in a foreign country as well as conducting frequent operations across the border. Northern Tier has three bases— the main base is outside of Ely, Minn. and secondary bases are located in Atikokan, Ontario and Bissett, Manitoba—meaning Patterson had to work with vendors and participants in both the U.S. and Canada. One of his favorite aspects of the job was working with citizens from almost all of the Canadian provinces. He believes his coworkers enhanced his experience working internationally and he has made lifelong friends. For anyone interested in working outside the U.S., Patterson encourages it. He also recommends making friends from the local area. “Those friends are the ones who will make your experience special,” he says. p Bryan Patterson, Tennessee-Knoxville, spent his summer working in Canada.

Eggers qualified for the 2011 University Games after finishing third at the U.S. Collegiate Outdoor Archery Championships in May. After a 15-hour flight to Shenzhen, China in August, the U.S. team was greeted by volunteers and taken to the Universiade Village, which served as home to more than 10,000 athletes from around the world. Eggers then had the opportunity to participate in the Opening Ceremonies, where she met other American collegiate athletes who were competing. One of the aspects she found most amazing about the World University Games was that more than one million people volunteered to help during the competition. Previously, Eggers has competed on national and regional levels, and in 2008, she came in 3rd place in the National Field Archery Association’s (NFAA) Indoor Nationals. She also placed first numerous times in the NFAA 3D Young Adult Female Freestyle division, and last year she won the Adult Freestyle division. As a freshman, Eggers created the Wayne State Archery Club. “Archery is not a well-known sport,” she said. “I started the club because I wanted those at our campus to know more about archery, and I wanted to find out if any of the other students had a passion for the sport like I do.” Part of Brother Egger’s passion for archery comes from her family’s involvement in the sport. By the age of 7, Eggers was firing her first set of arrows and three years later she entered her first competition. Over the years, Eggers relied on the instruction of all her family members, including her younger brother, Brett.

However, despite the slow economy, high unemployment and uncertainty on Wall Street, our passionate brothers rose to the occasion. Through YOUR generous donations, we raised more than $85,000. That’s an average of more than $100 per attendee!!! This is a truly amazing feat that reinforces how proud I am to be a Deltasig. Brandon Trease Our achievements at GCC were preceded by another successful year for the Leadership Foundation, highlighted by numerous accomplishments. Here are a few we are most excited about: • Endowment funds have been established for each of the five provinces to provide additional scholarships and educational funding for our collegiate brothers. • The Grand President’s Circle membership continues to rise with an additional 425 new members joining this past year. This number is sure to grow with the exciting changes to the program announced in Louisville, which include the creation of a new GPC Scholarship Fund that, once endowed, will fund undergraduate scholarships for GPC members only. • The first annual 4/25 Drive, a one-day viral giving campaign, was conducted in conjunction with National Alumni Day. The drive generated the largest number of online gifts received in a single day in the history of the Leadership Foundation, with 197 gifts totaling just under $6,500. • The new Buck$ 4 Brotherhood program was introduced at GCC and kicked off November 7 in conjunction with Founders’ Day. Don’t miss your opportunity to honor our Founding Fathers and become a Legacy Chapter. I would specifically like to thank the 36 members of the 10K Club, all new and renewing members of the Grand President’s Circle and the nearly 1,600 donors supporting Delta Sigma Pi with annual gifts. It is due to your overwhelming support that I have the privilege of congratulating more than 45 scholarship winners! The time, talent and treasure given freely by the members of this great organization are an inspiration to not only me, but all brothers. For that, I say, THANK YOU!!! As a collegiate and alumnus, I’ve been a recipient of the many great benefits provided by the Leadership Foundation and am now honored and humbled to be elected Chairman and President. I look forward to serving you and thank you for giving me the opportunity to give back to an organization that I am so passionate about. Thank you for your past support and I look forward to your continued support of Delta Sigma Pi and the Leadership Foundation. Proud to be a Deltasig! 24 Fraternally, Brandon D.

Donating to the Delta Sigma Pi Leadership Foundation Annual Fund – the cornerstone of giving to the Foundation – is a great way to support the many educational and leadership programs provided for undergraduate and alumni members.

NOVEMBER 2011/THE DELTASIG OF DELTA SIGMA PI 31 Delta Sigma Pi Leadership Foundation Endowed/Named Funds for Educational Scholarships and Grants A gift to establish a named/endowment fund demonstrates your farsighted commitment to the development of future business leaders. An endowment fund is maintained in perpetuity, with a portion of the annual investment return to be used for the charitable purposes you specify. Such an endowment, which typically bears the name of the donor or donors, reflects your interests and serves as an enduring testament to your generosity. A minimum initial gift of $2,000 is required to start a fund. The fund is permanently endowed when at least $20,000 has been contributed within six years.* The fund then begins to generate annual scholarships and/or grants. A fund may be designated to provide scholarships for members from a particular chapter or group of chapters or based on other criteria. Similarly, a fund may be designated to generate grants for an educational program that has special meaning to the donor. A Gift Agreement between the donor and the Leadership Foundation sets forth the purpose of the fund and how scholarships or grants will be distributed. For more details, or to start a named/endowed fund, contact the Leadership Foundation at email@example.com or 513-523-1907 x237.

She was first introduced to the sport through the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association, a program designed to introduce inner-city kids to the sport, many of whom would have not had the chance to learn to play otherwise. Golf became her passion and today she is making a career out of what she loves, while giving back to the golf community through her job with the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). “I love golf and I enjoy working with others who are just as passionate about their jobs–my colleagues and I are not motivated strictly to make a bottom line. We work to showcase the most talented women professional golfers in the world and grow the game of golf.” Although her official title is senior coordinator, tournaments and member programs, Brother Anderson jokes that she is a “jack of all trades” in her department. One role is to serve as the regional tournament coordinator and national tournament director for the LPGA’s Teaching and Club Professional membership. Teaching and Club Professionals (T & CP) are women who are within the golf industry and directly influence the game as teaching professionals, coaches and golf professionals at clubs and facilities around the world. The LPGA certifies these women through a golf education curriculum, which is one of the leading and most sought after programs in the industry. The program educates members on how to teach the game; effectively manage golf facilities; and coach successful high school and college golf teams. Anderson is currently pursuing LPGA T & CP certification. In addition, she is responsible for coordinating promotional programs including the LPGA Front Row Experience presented by Michelob Ultra and LPGA Tour Junior Golf Clinics held at several LPGA Tour events each year. Since her position requires a cross-section of functions, she learns something new every day. Anderson also finds time to work as a Junior Golf Instructor for the Orlando Minority Youth Golf Association and youth mentor for TeeLo Golf. Very few people realize that golf is a $76 billion industry, which is higher than the motion picture and recording industries combined. The industry not only includes the LPGA, PGA Tour, PGA of America, but golf clubs and resorts, retail and equipment companies, and more. The golf industry also donates more than $3.5 billion annually to charities across the country, which is more than any other sport. Brother Anderson says the charitable aspect is part of what makes her proud to work in the industry. into a Career By: Kellsey Miller “I love golf and I enjoy working with others who are just as passionate about their jobs–my colleagues and I are not motivated strictly to make a bottom line. We work to showcase the most talented women professional golfers in the world and grow the game of golf,” said Anderson. While there are too many experiences during her career with the LPGA to name a favorite, Anderson has had the chance to meet many influential people and big Ashleigh Anderson, Florida names in the golf industry, State, is senior coordinator including Nancy Lopez—who of tournaments and member was one of her golf heroes programs for the LPGA. growing up. Breaking into the sports industry is difficult and highly competitive; Brother Anderson notes that candidates who are passionate about sports and have some experience in the industry receive preference. She also says internships are key, especially for candidates with broader majors such as sports management. If you have trouble finding an internship, but played a sport in college—whether it be on your school’s team or just an intramural—include it on your resume. Anderson played on the women’s golf team at Florida State and interned for First Tee, a youth development program dedicated to providing young people the opportunity to develop through golf and character education. Also, consider volunteering for a sporting event or program. This shows potential employers that “you are not just a fan, but a committed candidate looking to create a career in the industry,” said Anderson.p Anderson (second from left) with several coworkers.
