Pledges, actives and alumni, itโ€™s Friday!
One of the challenges that every chapter faces eventually is CONFLICT! In order for chapter operations to run smoothly and for our pledges and brothers to grow as servant leaders, we must work together. Brother Fred Heismeyer, Fall 2016 Pledge Class Namesake Honoree, challenged the fall pledges to Seek Peace, and a great place to start is right at home in your own chapter.
In the comments, share your ideas for resolving conflict peaceably and building a team environment within the chapter.

Our Brother of the Week is our Rush Chair Briana Elledge!
"My overall favorite Service Project involves serving the local Ronald McDonald House in preparing complete meals for the many families that reside there. I enjoy coming together with my Brothers as we cook and bake a fulfilling meal for both the children and their families. I know that in doing this, I am able to help create a welcoming environment and generous meal for those going through such a difficult time and am happy to be the one to help- I also enjoy being able to bake various sweets.
Something interesting about myself is that I love to write and hope to one day release a fiction series based around the many original characters that I have created."

Happy birthday to Alpha Phi Omega's second National President, the late H. Roe Bartle!

Brother Bartle served Alpha Phi Omega as National President for 16 years, from 1931, when there were only 18 chapters, until 1946 with APO present on 109 campuses. He secured the endorsement
of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America and established the Fraternityโ€™s National Office in #KansasCity. His achievements were even more significant when one considers that our nation endured the Depression and World War II during his term as President. The โ€œChiefโ€ continued to serve Alpha Phi Omega as a member of the Board of Directors, Chairman of the Endowment Trustees and Legal Counsel until he passed away May 9, 1974.

In his honor, the H. Roe Bartle Chapter Award was established to recognize those chapters of Alpha Phi Omega that achieve and maintain high standards in all aspects of their operations. In the fall of 2015, 148 chapters were selected to receive this recognition!
