First off, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kyle Martin and I was elected Consul shortly before the Harvard-Yale game this past semester. I'm a junior Neurobiology concentrator and have previously held the offices of Proconsul, Rush Chair and Community Service Chair.
I want to apologize for the lack of communication over the past several months. After The Game, the semester was essentially over for the chapter and, with the new academic calendar, we had nearly the entire month of January off. However, we're back now, reinvigorated and off to a fast start.
We got to work repainting the House after the electrical repairs were complete, and finished the job just in time for rush. Our recruitment process has been producing solid and dedicated classes in the recent past and we hope to continue this strong trend.
We continue to seek financial stability and long-term viability with our newly revised financial bylaws, promoting a very high collection rate through firm measures and the work of a dedicated Financial Committee. We are in the clear with International for the first time in three years and are working closely with the House Corporation to improve the House and prevent the chapter from failing to meet its obligations.
The chapter is the largest it has ever been, but we're working hard to keep our relationships close and personal through an activecommunityserviceprogramand prominent social brotherhood events. The brothers living in the House are always hanging out and guys swing by every single evening; we appreciate the improvements that have been made to enhance our quality of life. We have you to thank for this, and I cannot thank you enough.
I cannot be more excited about the direction the chapter is moving in. Our presence on campus is increasing and our brotherhood grows ever closer.
If you ever have questions or concerns, or if you’re in the area and just want to catch up, please contact me.
