Barton College - 2014 Spring

The Gamma Gamma Chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) at Barton College is continuing its efforts to make a difference in the Wilson community, provide leadership development, enhance its visibility, increase membership, and raise funds for its projects.  
Six chapter members and two advisers attended the Fall Leadership Development Conference in Greensboro.  Barton’s Non-Trivia team made us "proud" by earning second place. Three members and two advisors attended the Eastern Region Tip-Off in February at Nash Community College.

In the sixth year of the Barton College "Day of Service," Gamma Gamma chapter members enthusiastically volunteered to participate.  Members reorganized costumes at the Wilson Art's Council.  (We like those inside jobs!)  In November, the chapter celebrated Free Enterprise Day with Professional Division-Foundation member Jeffrey Massey speaking to the members.

In recruiting new members, chapter members have attended several Barton College classes to promote Phi Beta Lambda. Members prepared power point presentations, played PBL promotional videos, and distributed handouts highlighting the benefits of the organization. They were also able to share with the students their experience with Phi Beta Lambda and all of the skills acquired through their involvement. The chapter has also exhibited at Barton's Open Houses—advertising our organization to prospective students.

Phi Beta Lambda members and chapter advisers are practicing "Excellence in Action" by showcasing the Gamma Gamma chapter's activities of community service and leadership development while recruiting members at Barton's Freshman Fair, Club Fair, and Major's Fair. During the semester, we have partnered with the Wilson Chamber of Commerce, the Wilson County Department of Social Services, and the Wil-Med Foundation assisting in their community service activities.  The chapter continues to partner with a local organization to deliver "Home Delivered Meals" every Thursday.
