Monthly President's Message
To: Epsilon Sigma Phi Members
The KSRE Annual Conference provides a once a year opportunity for chapter members to meet face-to-face for our annual business meeting, auction and recognition event. Registration for Annual Conference will be open soon so plan to register and attend the following activities which will all take place on Tuesday, October 20.
The business meeting will be from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm in the Flint Hills Room of the K-State Student Union. Most of the work of the chapter happens through the various committees so the meeting will feature brief reports from each committee.
From 4:30 to 6:00 pm there will be a reception and poster session for all conference attendees. Epsilon Sigma Phi traditionally holds a silent auction during this reception. The funds raised go to the Extension Endowment fund to support innovation program grants and professional development opportunities. Plan to contribute an item as well as make a purchase. Watch for more information from the auction committee.
Recognition of our colleagues is one of the objectives of the conference. The ESP recognition event will be from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. In addition to presentation of various awards there will be initiation of new members, acknowledgement of members for years of service, introduction of retirees and installation of officers.
If you ever wonder what our chapter accomplishes I believe you will be pleased to learn as you attend these various events.
