Our theme for this year was ADVANCE. We observed the consequences of losing veteran members and the requirement of one having to be involved with a professional organization in our collect, and we decided that we wanted to change the tide. The tone was set with our adopting ADVANCE as our year’s theme. This year we have a lot of officers that are seniors and they wanted to leave our SAM chapter in good hands, so that it continue to prosper and grow. Laying the foundation was very essential to our board this year. As you can see we have deepened our involvement with technology especially social media. In order to reach our current generation of members we knew we had to do so on medium that they use frequently. We also wanted to improve our performance as an organization by utilizing our university’s partnership with Orgsync, which is very much like an Enterprise Resource System for campus organizations. Orgsync allows us to host our events, photos, and forms all in one central place. It also endures which assists officers who will be new to SAM in the subsequent years. We also laid the groundwork for a website specifically for our chapter. Our ultimate goal is to direct nationals to our website instead of displaying what we have done in a word document like this one. This year we have also been about strengthening the relationship between SAM, our college and other professional organizations within our college. Above all we really want to set the tone of what a professional organization in our college of business looks like.
