Roddy, Richard Oates, E.W. Weed, and Edward Lattimer. Thus, the beginning of our Chapter’s outstanding history of achievement.
Memphis Alumni Chapter has always maintained a sense of pride in our theme, “Training for Leadership.” Our overall ability to execute this theme is something that we continued to focus on. We have made, and continue to make significant contributions to the advancement of our fundamental purpose of achievement. In an effort to enhance our chapter’s membership, improve services to our members and to make a positive difference in our community, the following objectives were established:
- To improve responsiveness and enhance membership interaction
- To enhance service to our community
- To continuously enhance our Guide Right Program
- To provide continuous support to our Silhouette Chapter
- To become financially stable operating within a zero-base budget
- To secure a building that we can call our own
To achieve the above objectives, Brothers give of their time, energy, and financial resources. Many volunteer hours and monetary contributions are made by Brothers to facilitate community initiatives and guide right activities as well as to various organizations as we endeavor to make a difference.
