Dear Alpha Kappa Muans,
I am elated to serve as the 23rd president of our beloved organization. We have some exciting times ahead, and just to make sure we're all on the same page, I'd like to use the President's Messages to share upcoming events and goals. Each message will be saved on our website, so all of us, myself included, will be reminded of where we are heading.
The first area of emphasis relates to our level of commitment. The invitation to join Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society commemorates a huge milestone in one's academic and/or professional career; in addition, the oath that is taken during the induction ceremony indicates a level of commitment that extends beyond a mere line on a resume, a photo op for family and friends, or a social media post. We are a body—a fellowship—of emerging scholars and accomplished professionals who understand that "to whom much is given, much is required:" character, scholarship, citizenship, service, and leadership—the five principles upon which we were founded!
Please understand that if we are to place AKM in a position to positively impact our campuses and communities for years to come, our society must receive full buy-in from its members—past, present, and future!! Therefore, the Executive Council and I are calling on all of AKMuans to start each academic year by renewing their membership in and commitment to Alpha Kappa Mu.
Students should contact their advisors, and alumni should contact our national office. More details can be found via our website under the Membership Renewal link, which will soon include online payment options as well. Remember, we're counting on you!
