GK International Summit

From the desk of Paul R. Chapman, Communications Chair for The Kaplan University Chapter of The Golden Key International Honour Society
March 28, 2012
Good Afternoon Everyone!

Our chapter of Golden Key International Honour Society had reached Gold Status in 2011. In order for us to remain in that status, there are many things that we need to do this year. One of those is to have delegates at either a GK Regional Summit or GK’s International Summit.

The 2012 International Summit is being hosted by Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) on July 26-29. As a chapter, we have budgeted, and have been approved for, five of our members to attend this summit. While the agenda is not set yet, the summit will include such things as sessions for new officers and advisors; workshops focusing on personal and professional development of our members, advisors and alumni; an EXPO with graduate schools, partners and HR managers looking to recruit and hire interns and prospective graduates; and other events.

It is crucial for many reasons that we have all five of our allotted slots filled at this summit. There will be a lot of information presented and we need people to report that information back to us. While GK Headquarters will be paying for the registration, lodging (student dorms), and meals, the delegates will pay for their travel and other incidental expenses. However, the chapter will reimburse members for those expenses. Please keep in mind that, due to the processes that occur, reimbursement of those expenses can take up to 8 weeks.

Anyone interested in attending the summit, must be a current, active student member of our chapter. While alumni are more than welcome to attend, they are not eligible to be reimbursed for expenses. If you are interested in attending, please submit an essay explaining why you should be chosen as one of our chapter delegates and what you plan to bring to the summit as well as back from the summit no later than April 25th to kathleensullivan17@student.kaplan.edu.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

Thank you

  1. This is certainly a great opportunity for our members to interact with other chapters and bring back a wealth of information to our own! I am sure there will be many submissions.
