Delta Chi holds leadership conference at WMU

Feb. 2, 2005

KALAMAZOO--The Western Michigan chapter of Delta Chi fraternity at Western Michigan University will play host to Delta Chi International Fraternity's annual Region VI Leadership Conference Friday through Sunday, Feb. 4-6, in the Bernhard Center on WMU's main campus in Kalamazoo.

This year's event includes a food drive to benefit the Kalamazoo community and will feature a keynote speech by Steve Bossart, Delta Chi International president.

"The food drive is a great opportunity for Delta Chi to positively contribute to this year's host city," says conference co-organizer Trent Unterbrink, Delta Chi region VI regent.

"It's an honor to serve as the host site," adds co-organizer Sean Rossiter, a WMU senior from Northville, Mich., "as it's our 50th anniversary of being chartered on the campus of Western Michigan University."

Delta Chi chapters at universities from the Midwest and Canada will be sending representatives to the 2005 regional conference. These schools include West Virginia University Institute of Technology; the universities of Kentucky, Western Ontario and Windsor; and Bowling Green State, Central Michigan, Denison, Ferris State, Kent State, Kettering, Miami, Michigan State, and Ohio State universities.

The regional conference provides a venue to conduct fraternity business and leadership development for undergraduate members. Educational sessions during the event will cover such topics as building alumni relations, resumes and job interviews, and personal credit and finance.

Delta Chi International Fraternity is a social organization that believes a close association of college and university men may advance justice, promote character, develop friendships and assist in the acquisition of a sound education.
