Central Carolina CC - Spring 2017

The CCCC Phi Beta Lambda is off to another great year as we prepare for the upcoming SLC in April. The chapter officer team is hoping to accomplish their goals for the year this spring semester. Two of those goals, which include increasing chapter membership and professional membership, the chapter has already surpassed and will continue to add members all the way to the deadline. The recruitment committee has done a great job of marketing and reaching out across the campus to bring in more members.

Another goal of the chapter was to increase professional development within. The chapter has partnered up with Toastmasters International who now has a chapter on campus. Toastmasters International focuses on teaching how to be a better speaker. A skill needed for anyone entering into the workforce. All officers are required to join and attend meetings and all other members are encouraged to join as well.

Networking was also a goal of the officer team. So this year the chapter officially became a member of the Sanford Chamber of Commerce. All registered chapter members and professional division members are now members of the chamber and can attend all chamber events. Events include morning networking events, after hours social networking, to more formal events that include guest speakers and opportunities to meet with local government officials. This opportunity has created a gate way for our members to interact with local companies that will provide long term opportunities for members to find employment.

To prepare for the upcoming SLC and NLC, which will be held in California this June fundraising efforts are in full swing. The chapter continues to work in Charlotte at Time Warner Arena and the Lowes Motor Speedway and just formed a new relationship with the PNC arena in Raleigh. Fundraising not only helps to send the chapter to conferences, but it allows the chapter to provide scholarships, subsidize community service projects, and financial support chapter professional development.

 

We hope to see everyone at SLC in April and look forward to another successful year for NCPBL at NLC in June.
