The chapter is also looking for Alumni Bigs to help new members to connect with AKPsi graduates.  It is very easy to be an alumni brother; just communicate by phone, email, or in person to answer a few questions for your little.  Interested?  Email Alissa Patnode at

General Body Meeting & Brunch

Don't forget to join us for the general body meeting on Saturday, September 13 at 10:00 am.  The meeting will take place at Christopher Newport University  The building and room number will be provided closer to the date of the meeting.

After the meeting, alumni brothers and current CNU Iota Pi members are invited to join us for our Back to School Brunch at Schooners.  The restaurant is right across the street from campus and offers tasty brunch options as well as discounted beverages.

Remember that all active members must attend two meetings per year in order to maintain their status.  Changes are coming with HRAC!  Come learn about HRAC changes and share your thoughts!  We will also shoot some footage for our video during the meeting and brunch.


Show Us Your Skills

The 2015 Convention is coming to Norfolk and we need your help in showing what we have to offer in our area!  We are working on a video to share with other AKPsi brothers to help promote the convention and all the fun things people can do here in Hampton Roads.

How can you help?  If find yourself in a fun environment or at a local landmark, pull out your camera or phone and record a few seconds of yourself dancing around the area. sounds silly, but this is what we want!  We will compile all of the videos to make our own "Happy" video like Pharrell's.

We request that the videos are during the day or in a well lit area and that all videos are sent to brother Kim Green, no later than 11/15.  Please do not wait until the deadline though.  Send your videos as you take them!  So next time you're in downtown Norfolk, at Mermaid Winery, at a Tides game, by the oceanfront, or wherever it may be, start recording!  Be as silly as you'd like!

Spectrum Golf Tournament
Tickets Still Available

Tickets are still available for the 5th Annual Spectrum Foundation Golf Tournament on Friday, September 19.  The event will take place at 1:00 pm at The Pines golf course at Ft. Eustis.  Prizes will be awarded and raffle drawings will take place during the event.  Review more information and sign up as an individual or a team of four here.  The deadline to sign up is Friday, September 12.

The Spectrum Foundation was implemented in January 2009 to satisfy the growing demand of Spectrum employees to support and participate in charitable efforts at a corporate level. The Foundation, a donor-advised fund under the Peninsula Community Foundation, serves as the governing body for all of Spectrum's charitable giving with fifty percent of the proceeds from the Foundation supporting the military. The Foundation has raised over $25,000 to date.
