March 2002 House Corporation President Update

Brothers,
As some of you have noticed, this is the first House Corp update of 2002 as I have been unable to devote as much time and energy to this position in the past few months as it deserves. American has been keeping me more than busy as we are approaching the launch of a brand new website for AA.com with a fresh new look and all sorts of functionality for our customers.

With it scheduled to launch later this month, my time for House Corp has been pretty limited. For those of you who are interested, we are having a beta-launch prior to the actual release for select customers. As airline employees and industry experts, drop me a line if you’re interested in trying it out before the general public and I can set you up.

31st Birthday Plans

The Undergraduate Consul, Mark Nicalek, and the rest of the active chapter have been planning for this year’s birthday celebration. Pricing for the weekend of festivities has been announced on the website as $47 per person. You should have receievd a postcard with basic info but you can find additional information as well as hotel arrangements online at www.etaiota.org/birthday. Feel free to contact Mark at nicklez@aol.com or by phone at 386-453-8240 if you have any questions.

Fire Sprinkler Update

Last Fall, the General Fraternity announced plans to consider allocating certain funds towards improving fire safety in light of recent events and increasing insurance costs. One of the proposals was to investigate assisting chapters with the costs of installing sprinkler systems for those that do not already have them. I have been approached by the General Fraternity and asked if we would be interested in participating with a limited number of other chapters to explore this option in greater detail. While I am still waiting to heaar back from headquarters, I am hoping that this is something that we can pursue with our current house. Obviously there will be many factors influencing the final decision, some of which include obvious costs we would have to pay, the expected savings that would result and of course the always asked: How much expected time left at 520 S Ridgewood. I’ll keep you posted once we hear any developments.

Guard Well,
