It's time to grow
Alpha Chi Sigma is great. We do great things. We have great
people. Now it is time for everyone to know about us, and have s.
everyone want to join us... well everyone having something to do ."
with Chemistry, that is. This biennium I would like to focus on
growing. We have several expansion opportunities in the works
for collegiate chapters at the four pre-colonies at which we have
already had members initiated. In the next year, they should all
become colonies and soon convert to chapter status. We have
Boston University of Mu, Stanford University (reactivation of
Alpha Alpha) of Sigma, Georgia Southern University of Alpha
Omega, and Southeastern Missouri State University of Beta Psi.
We need to reach out to more campuses and get more interest
in our brotherhood. I would like to charge all brothers who live
near a school, or who are in a graduate program at a place that Randy D. Weinstein
has no chapter, to think about starting a chapter there. Contact GMA (2012-14)
us at the office and we will help you. Remember how much fun Alpha Kappa 1990
you had as an undergraduate? Well you can do it again without the exams, early classes, and snoring
We also need to grow the number of professional chapters. No university or college required-just
a desire to uphold the three objects and meet and hang out with brothers. Some of our current pro-
fessional chapters judge science fairs, do chemistry magic shows,
participate in our chemistry of color tie-dye program, and so
"We need everyone's much more. If interested, contact the office and we will help you
help." help us grow. It is easy, fun, and very rewarding.
Finally, we need everyone's help. As we form new chapters,
grow our outreach programs, sponsor awards for greatness, and
provide more services to our brothers, we need to grow our resources. We need your support through
donations. Think about a small or large donation and how much it can do for a freshman college stu-
dent, a 2nd grader attending a magic show, or a brother in need receiving a loan from our education
foundation. If we pool our resources we can plant the seed-or in chemistry terms throw in that seed
crystal-and continue to grow into even more greatness.
I hope to look back some short time from now and say, "Wow, look at all that growth, involve-
ment and excitement."Be part of it. Contact us, join our group on Facebook, help support us, or even
just stalk our website and be amazed at what we do.
The distribution of the Fall Issue of The HEXAGON goes to all of the membership for whom we
have mailing information (ca. 32,000 of you), while the other three issues are provided to collegiate
members and contributors. I mention this for two reasons. First, you might actually be unaware that
there are three other issues of The HEXAGON published, and second, this will motivate you to think
about your solicitation letter when you receive it! Yours in the Double Bond - GE
The Objects of Alpha Chi Sigma

2. To strive for the advancement of chemistry both as a science and as a profession.

throughout their mortal lives.
