Presidents Digest 1.24.20

Greetings Presidents!

We hope you all are enjoyed your break and had a great first week of classes! The president's digest is a weekly email full of this week's updates from our office, councils, chapters, CSU and the community. 

By condensing, all these emails that were previously sent to you individually into one weekly presidents digest email, we are reducing the overall amount of correspondence you receive. That makes it even more important for you to read through this information thoroughly to ensure you are aware of all relevant information as well as share it with your chapter as appropriate. As the chapter president, you are responsible for knowing all information contained in this email and sharing it with your membership. Please ensure you read through the entire Presidents Digest and pass along relevant information and opportunities to officers and/or members. While we know that the digest emails are long, we respect your desire to not receive many, many emails each week and thus condense everything in one message. The tradeoff is the expectation for chapter presidents to be familiar with all the information included. Please also note that we are happy to include updates and announcements from chapters and councils in the digest as well. 

As a reminder the buses to FSLI load at 4:40pm today at the corner of Plum and Meridan (Bustang Lodging Zone) you will see two large CSU charter buses. All FSLI participants must ride the provided transportation. We're excited to spend the weekend with you!
