Sigma Chi Horizons Quotes From Keith Krach And Others

March 10, 2010

In June of 2009 I was lucky enough to record a Horizons podcast with former Grand Consul Keith Krach. There were two other Sigs who have been to Horizons that participate and gave their thoughts about the experience. I was listening to the podcast and realized there were some really good quotes by all three of em. So I decided to strip out the quotes and put some music to them. Feel free to use this and share with your chapter with this short link: http://bit.ly/brOT6O

Sigma Chi Pledge Test, Giveaways and Podcasts – Ending ’09

November 17, 2009

There is less than 2months left in 2009 and I’ve got a few things that I want to do before 2010 gets here. A few ideas that have been in works for some time now and I’m pretty confident that you’ll see them real soon. You can plan on seeing at least 1 more podcast by the end of this month and possibly another podcast in December. You will definitely have a chance to win some free Sigma Chi gear and as soon as we work out the details we’ll let you know how. The last and probably biggest idea is that I’ll be launching a new Sigma Chi website.

Upcoming Podcast

Back in September we recorded a podcast with Brad Wellman discussing Sigma Chi and Social Media. The majority of the podcast we said that Sigma Chi wasn’t utilizing social media like they should (it’s one of the reasons why I started ShareSigmaChi over 2 years ago). We both agreed that the fraternity should be using these social media outlets to communicate, share, help and connect Sigs.  I guess HQ was listening because within the last month they started to become more active on Facebook and a Twitter account. Brad and I will discuss this sudden increase in social media activities, what we like/dislike about these activities and how we think they could improve. I am excited to see the fraternity taking a step forward and anxious to see how they leverage social media to help Sigs.

Upcoming Giveaway

If you follow ShareSigmaChi on Twitter then you were one of the first to see the hats that we will be giving away. The hats came from Bamm Promo which is a “promotional products” company run by a Sigma Chi. If you get a chance check them out or send Ben an email. I haven’t worked out the details of the giveaway just yet, but we will definitely let you know as soon as we get it ironed out. The one thing I can you is that the giveaway will be a part of the new Sigma Chi website that we are also launching.

Launching SigmaChiPledgeTest.com

Sigma Chi Pledge Test will be a new learning tool for Sigs and we plan on launching the BETA by the end of the year. I know what you’re thinking “Share Sigma Chi already has pledge tests“. I decided that since this new site will be so much different and offer more functionality that it would be best to host it on it’s own site. The old pledge tests will stay in tact and can be accessed by anybody with a ShareSigmaChi account.
I think most of you will be really happy with the new Sigma Chi Pledge Test site. The parts of the site that I am most excited about is that all of the authentication will use Facebook Connect so you won’t have to create a new account and not only can you take pledge tests, but you will be able to create your own pledge tests and share them with other Sigs. It will be really easy for magisters to create a test and share it with all of their pledges so they can prepare for their weekly test.

The BETA will be launching soon and I will need your help to make sure everything goes smoothly. This is also where the hats we’re giving away will come in. Most likely the hats will be randomly given out to Sigs who sign up and participate in the BETA. It’s basically a way for me to say “thank you” to all you Sigs who “Share Sigma Chi”. So be on the look out and feel free to use this short url to share this post with other Sigs http://bit.ly/4cc6KX
