My goals are that our chapter is moving in the direction it requires in order to be effective.   The entire officer team relies on membership for their events and activities.  I wish to create more awareness for both members and provisional members about the benefits of Phi Theta Kappa.  I would like to increase the size of our active members in the chapter.  I aim to enhance communication between advisors and membership and recruitment.  I aspire to achieve at least 200 new members each semester.    I am focused on collaborating with the team for a thriving college project and honors in actions.  I convey a special interest in giving my team extra support this year and working with another most distinguished officer team.   Most of all I can’t wait to celebrate another amazing year of hard work with such an astounding crew in San Antonio, Texas!!!!
