Fraternity Releases 2014-15 Annual Chapter Report Results

INDIANAPOLIS – Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity recently released the official results of each collegiate chapter’s 2014-15 Annual Chapter Report (ACR). The ACR is designed to act as a planning and evaluation tool for chapters working to create a successful and dynamic chapter.

On an annual basis, collegiate chapters strive to attain goals they set out for themselves in areas of membership, training, events, funding and more. After chapters submit their ACR, the fraternity verifies the information and determines the total number of points each chapter receives based on the percentage of each goal attained.

With the highest achievement of 100,000 points, any chapter that receives a perfect score is recognized as a “Chapter of the Year.” This year, with a fraternity ACR average of 82,182 points, 15 collegiate chapters received such a distinction. These chapters, along with other chapters that performed well on the ACR, will be recognized during the upcoming Convention in Norfolk, VA.

Fraternity Expands International Presence with Latest Alumni Chapter Installation

SINGAPORE — Alpha Kappa Psi, the largest international professional business fraternity, recently granted an alumni charter to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The 109th alumni chapter to charter, efforts came from nearly 65 alumni members representing 51 collegiate chapters and nine countries of residence. The ASEAN Alumni Chapter’s primary operational area consists of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

In a chartering petition letter, chapter president Stephen Smith, Florida ‘86 – Life stated how the alumni chapter “represents different career fields in business and come from different cultures, yet our bonds of brotherhood are very strong.” As the second international alumni chapter to charter in fraternal history, the melting pot of members in a new global territory will help further advance the fraternity’s vision for years to come.

Led by Smith, the group has plans to serve as a connection for all members that visit or live in the region. They will help re-engage alumni who were once isolated by their geographic location through supporting future expansion efforts, hosting events, and serving as a local point of contact.
