    Would it help in some sense to raise the chapter fees, sure, but to what degree?

    I am with you Bro. Jefferson, and I am going off the rails, but I believe from a graduate chapter we should have a more vested interest in ensuring the fiscal strength of our ug chapters including as you stated fundraising, and also grant writing, sponsorships, etc.

    I look at it this way, we have chapters where such an increase can cripple that chapter, so that leads us to a host of other “issues” including effective chapter management, lack of interest groups, ineffective or non-existent planning, inconsistent advising by grad chapters, and importantly, being upfront with potentials about the required monies!

    I now consider all of these things as I am working to reactivate EP at the University of Nebraska.
