 *Dear Laura*

**The start of the every semester brings new students to campus, with whom
you can share APO! Make sure your chapter and you, as an
individual, demonstrate the Cardinal Principles of Leadership, Friendship
and Service in order for students to see that APO is the fraternity that
they want to be a part of!

Also, brothers, make sure that your chapter has an updated and
active outlet- such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.- to get information to
prospective brothers about upcoming meetings and other things they can be a
part of.

Welcome back to school, brothers!

See you in Atlanta!

   *2010 Fall Pledge Class Namesake Honoree: Brother Jim Chandler, Omicron
Tau '65

Being chosen as the Fall Pledge Class Namesake Honoree is a privilege given
to only one person every year. The Fraternity selects someone who reflects
the Fraternity's Cardinal Principles of Leadership, Friendship and Service
after whom to name the fall pledge class.

Brother James (Jim) Chandler, Omicron Tau '65 at Alma College in
Michigan, was selected by the Board of Directors as the 2010 Fall Pledge
Class Namesake.

Brother Chandler recently issued his challenge to the 2010 Fall Pledge

Alpha Phi Omega National Convention in Atlanta might be more of a challenge

from your campus and from alumni, more brothers might be able to make the
rewarding journey to the National Convention in just a few months.

  ***2009 Report from CNCS Shows National Increase in Volunteering

The Corporation for National and Community Service released the 2010
Volunteering in America report, which found that 2009 saw the greatest
increase in volunteering since 2003. This report gives a great look at
various demographics and how, why and where Americans volunteer. According
to the CNCS, in 2009, 63.4 million Americans provided 8.1 billion hours of
service. The CNCS infographic to the right shows the demographic breakdown
of volunteer hours performed in 2009. College students make up 27 percent of
the 63.4 million American providing service.

Alpha Phi Omega chapters, on average, require their members to perform at
least 20 hours of service each semester. Based on this average, the
Fraternity collectively performs more than 700,000 hours of service each
school year. More than 80,000 of those hours are performed during National
Service Week in November and Spring Youth Service Day in April.

Each year thousands of college students across the country join the ranks of
APO as a means to perform service that benefits their campus, community and
nation. The above statistics show a substantial opportunity for the growth
of the Fraternity and its mission to provide more service to more campuses

If you or someone you know is interested in chartering or rechartering a
chapter on a campus where APO is not currently active, please contact
Director of Chapter Services Judy Mitchell at 816-373-8667 ext. 13 or
