Just a quick note to say thank you to those of you that were able to attend our annual Seminole Club Leadership Conference last week! I say this every year–because it’s true–but this was our best one yet. A big thank you goes to the Alumni Association and Seminole Clubs’ staff for all their hard work! And to all the on campus entities that participated as well. Continue reading
The calendar will soon turn to April and before you know it our annual Seminole Clubs Leadership Conference weekend will be here. In fact, the conference kicks off two weeks from tomorrow. Currently we have representatives from over 20 clubs signed up to attend and that’s terrific. But there are several clubs who have yet to sign up. I won’t name names…but you procrastinators know who you are, so get to it and sign up! For those of you who are on the fence, let me simply say that the feedback we get every year from this conference is tremendous. It’s a fun weekend that allows you to network and share ideas with fellow club leaders while being back at the university you love. All the workshops and sessions are designed to help energize you about FSU and to help you better run your Seminole Clubs. And from the feedback we receive, there’s a perfect mix of business and pleasure. (Plus you never know what might happen–just last year Lonnie Pryor grabbed the mic and sang with the live band. Let’s just say he’s a better fullback than frontman).
The conference begins on Thursday night April 11th and runs through the spring football game on April 13th. You can find the agenda and register to attend at this link: http://one.fsu.edu/Community/leadership2013
It’s important that your club or chapter be represented because what we cover is what’s required and expected of your club or chapter. Remember that online registration closes on April 5th. As always…if you have questions, let us know! Thanks and Go ‘Noles!
We cannot begin to thank all of our Seminole Clubs & Chapters enough for the hard work they put into Service Day this weekend. The events were a total success! The feedback we have received from the clubs/chapters, alumni, local communities, etc has been overwhelmingly positive. We are so lucky to have such devoted alumni not only to FSU but to the local communities as well!
We look forward to sharing your event information in an all alumni e-blast this week. Please be sure to get your follow up forms in today by 5pm- including original (not saved from Facebook) photos of the events. http://one.fsu.edu/community/page.aspx?pid=4150
Please be sure to add hashtag #ssd2013 to all postings (add it to comments section on previous posts) to get include in the tag board. Check it out here: http://tagboard.com/ssd2013/. Thank you again for all of your hard work!
As you participate in Seminole Service Day tomorrow, use the hashtag #ssd2013 on twitter, instagram, and vine, Don’t forget to wear your garnet and gold and have a great time. Thanks for representing FSU in such a positive manner in your local communities!
Hi Seminole Clubs-

The Send-Off season is slowly creeping up on us and will be in full swing before we know it. The first round of students were accepted in mid-December and the second, and final, round of students will be accepted on March 20. We will be making a request for students names, home address, and phone numbers on the club’s behalf in the coming weeks. The Alumni Association will send an emailed invite to those students as we cannot provide the clubs with that information. As a tip- many clubs found Facebook as a good tool to find these students and invite them to an event through their club page last year. Continue reading
