THE FIRST IN A SERIES:
Your HOMECOMING TEAM
This series of web site posts will cover how our Fraternity works. At this time there are four articles planned before Homecoming to provide you some insight to our organization. These web site posts will cover the Homecoming Team, the Alumni Association (AA) Board, the House Corp. Board of Trustees and the Grand Chapter Advisor. This post is about the AA's
As currently organized, the Homecoming Team grew out of an ad hoc 2012 committee that call themselves the WE Team. Bulldozer Nick Santino #657 organized Larry Thomas 695# (also on the House Corp Board) , David Moon #639 (also works on the Capital Campaign Comm.), and Brian Stebleton #643 to formed an Alumni email outreach/phone team and a Homecoming events team that saw a new high of 65 brothers return to Homecoming 2012. OddBall (Tom) Alspaugh #840 joined this team at Homecoming 2012 and by January 2013 the Alumni Association Board (AA) formed The Homecoming Team as it now operates. This Team is lead by the AA President (Gene Tierney #850) and includes the Homecoming Events Committee (Co-Chairmen Logan Nickel #1128(also on AA Board) and Joey Biedenweg #1127), the Alumni Relations Committee (Oddball Chairman) and the Alumni Connection Editor ( interim editor, Oddball).
The Homecoming Team is first an active group of Brothers that attend monthly conference calls to plan and encourage attendance to Homecoming, including all of the original WE Team, Letki (John) Letki #888, Doc (Wes) Stinson #1118 (also Grand Chapter Advisor), Nathan Scroggins #1171, and Jay Carey #1143. Some have special roles like Bulldozer Nick specializes in the hotel reception, Doc runs the Tail Gate, Larry Thomas organizes the golf outing, Brian Stableton makes phone calls to large non- specific groups of Brothers and of course his pin number specific group , Oddball sets up the conference calls and take notes, Letki keeps The Homecoming Team's "To Do" List, and David Utter works on quality assurance of our Association's membership database. Gene and Oddball make most of The Team's Website posts while Gene, with assistance from Nathan and Jay, manages the website.
Second, this whole team, along with many others, reaches out to as many Brothers as we can to ask that they return for our Homecoming reunions. Nathan, Jay, Logan, Joey and Doc perform our social media outreach functions. OddBall and Gene drive the email outreach efforts and OddBall organizes a large groups of Brothers referred to the Welcome Every Brother Back team or WEBBS that call and email their friends to encourage Every Brother to return to Homecoming.
