Chicago Graduation Update

Hello everyone!
I wanted to extend a heartfelt congratulation’s to all members that have recently graduated, and to those that participated in the Chicago graduation ceremony.  It was great to meet all of you that stopped by the Golden Key table to pick up your honor cords!  I saw a lot of smiling faces, and so many faces beaming with pride!  You earned it!

A special shout out to Lyndon Kubitz and Charles Jansen II, both writers for our chapter newsletter The Golden Scholar.  Being an online school we don’t often get to meet the people we regularly interact with in person.  It was great to finally meet both of you in person!  Thank you for your dedication and time spent writing articles for our chapter’s newsletter!
On behalf of the Executive Board: Best of luck in all life has to offer our graduating members!

Hello members!

First, I would like to extend congratulations to all of our members that were recent graduates at the Chicago Commencement Ceremony.  Hopefully many of you got to meet your Kaplan Chapter Vice President, Christine Slominski while receiving your honor cord.  I would also like to congratulate and thank Christine for traveling to Chicago and bestow such an honor upon our members. 
For many of us, we are in the final throws of summer and others yet have already ushered their children back to school in the south.  We here at the Kaplan Chapter of Golden Key have been working all summer to ensure the best possible experiences for our members.  We had two of our members, Mandy Wright and Lyann Valadez, attend the International Summit and will provide us with a wealth of information.  We have also begun revamping our chapter dedicated website as well as maintaining all of our other social media outlets. 
On August 27, 2012 at 8 PM Eastern we will be holding our first ever New Member Recognition Event.  We will feature several speakers including Nate Daigle of Student Life and Fabeanne Collins, who is our regional representative at Golden Key.  We will be able to welcome and congratulate our newer members for achieving the requirements of membership and honor Dean Boyd who is being inducted as an Honorary Member.  This should be a great event and a way for new members and old, to become familiar with the benefits of Golden Key and involvement in our chapter.  The web link for attending this meeting and all of our meetings is  Enter as a guest, use your name, and you will be brought into the meeting. 
Please also take note of the following addresses to partake in our social media and be able to receive updates and news regarding your chapter.  This is also a great way for Alumnus to remain involved in the chapter and for any member to be able to reach out to your executive board when necessary.
