Here’s a picture of my work-from-home reality. Communicating with others through social media and web meetings. Watching online commencement ceremonies. Catching up with family via Zoom or Webex.
It’s hard to be upbeat given the current events in our country, but I did want to take this opportunity to congratulate our newest Phi Kappa Phi members, and celebrate our 2020 graduates. I’m pleased to say that we welcomed approximately 150 new members to Chapter 22 UMB-UMBC this year, and although we were unable to hold our initiation due to COVID -19 restrictions, we look forward to sharing information about the chapter in the near future.
Due to the timing of mailings from the National Office, as well as our own work-from-home situation, the mailing of certificates, pins and medallions will be delayed until later this summer. The National Office has indicated that it will be mailing membership cards directly to members in the coming weeks as well.
These are unsettling times, clearly affecting our personal and professional lives, and the lives of those we love. Please take care, mind and body. Let the love of learning rule humanity.
All the best,
