What fundraising efforts has your organization recently put forth? What is being planned?: Donations to the society are greatly appreciated and encouraged. Members of the musical community greatly value the Annual Dana Flute Festival and have contributed time and funding in the past. Previously, members of the flute studio had a bake sale for fundraising efforts, and this year are planning on hosting a Halloween-themed bake sale, as well as a polo teeshirt sale.

 

What community service has your organization participated in recently? What is being planned? Please be specific as to how many participate and if it is done on behalf of the organization.: The Annual Dana Flute Festival itself is the Dana Flute Society’s major service emphasis and outreach to the surrounding community. The festival is a full day of concert recitals, lectures and master classes – a culturally enriching and educational event! People have attended from far away as New York, with the majority coming from Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Youngstown. In addition, members of the Dana Flute Society volunteer to perform music in nursing homes, worship services, and even an Irish music performance at Park Vista this past St. Patrick’s Day.

Location: Iowa State University, Des Moines, IA

Expected Participation: 2 members will attend

Total Cost of Event: $1650.00

Description of Event: The Convention serves as:

The supreme governing body of Tau Beta Pi conducting the business of the Association. In this sense, it is the annual stockholders’ meeting of the corporation. The Convention alone has the power to grant new chapters, elect an Executive Council, and amend the Constitution (subject to chapter ratification) and the Bylaws.

A training session for student delegates, most of whom are chapter presidents who will serve this year. The Chapter Development Program, including Interactive Chapter Exchange (ICE), Engineering Futures, and District meetings, is designed to achieve this goal.

An opportunity for delegates from all parts of the country to meet and socialize with each other. Chapter representatives are afforded a special opportunity to meet with Association Officials and to learn first-hand about problems, solutions, and opinions on the role of TBP on the nation’s campuses.

Each Collegiate Chapter must send one voting delegate to the Convention at the Association’s expense. Your chapter has already paid an assessment to help fund the expenses of the voting delegates (Bylaw 1, Sec. 1.05). Chapters are also encouraged to send non-voting delegates and Advisors at their expense. The on-site expenses of one Advisor per chapter will be paid by TBP.

How will this event benefit YSU and the student body?: This event will maintain YSU’s connection to Tau Beta Pi’s national headquarters. Attendees will train in leadership areas and will bring new ideas and opportunities back to YSU. Networking with other TBP officers will be hugely beneficial as well as the opportunity to bring resumes to the job fair at the convention.
