President’s Message

Hello ESP Member!

I want to thank everyone for attending the 2009 Epsilon Sigma Phi Annual Meeting. A fine informative program was conducted. It is always an enjoyable opportunity to meet with fellow extension agents and to also visit with retired employees.

We express our appreciation to Dr. Howard van Dijk for providing leadership as President of the Alpha Phi Chapter over the past year. Howard’s dedication and hard work over the past years has been among the principal reasons for the success of our Chapter. We are truly grateful to him for his continued support to Alpha Phi Chapter.

Membership in Epsilon Sigma Phi is an honor and recognition by your peers, administrators, of fine work as extension professional educators. ESP offers professional development programs and provides many awards for outstanding performance throughout a career. Professional development may also take place through additional education opportunities and ESP provides opportunities for scholarship assistance. Continuing your membership is important in your personal career and is needed to maintain an active and viable chapter. Therefore, please consider paying your dues for 2010, if perhaps you allowed it to lapse. Contact Christine Patrick for a current membership update.

As we make plans for the coming year, I want you to feel free to contact your current officers and committee chairs with your thoughts and ideas for how we can improve our state association. This year’s board is listed in this newsletter. We ask that you please help your board this year in 2 ways:

  1. Help us recruit new members to Epsilon Sigma Phi - contact us with possible new member nominations.
  2. Provide us with ideas and suggestion for the annual meeting in October, 2010. We are looking for ideas for speakers, workshops and a theme for the conference.

Have a great spring!

Stephanie Felks
Alpha Phi Chapter President
