Create PTK Culture on Campus through Engaging Meetings

Create PTK Culture on Campus through Engaging Meetings

Now that the semester is in full swing and PTK Awareness week is behind us let’s start thinking about how to continue to engage members. Getting members to attend weekly meetings can be difficult. I speak to so many students and advisors who say very few members show up to meetings. Running a productive meeting is not just enough; it is attracting members to attend that should be the focus. One thing that works well is to find a time on campus that works and stick to it. Create a PTK culture on campus. Let the entire campus know when you meet and meet at the designated day and time every week, every semester. Use your meetings as an opportunity to provide professional development to your members. Then think about how your meetings align your chapter with the four hallmarks: scholarship, leadership, service, and fellowship.

Traveling Solo, Making Waffles and PTK HQ’s Visit

Joining PTK is more than scholarships. It is about recognizing academic achievement and to engage in the many opportunities to grow as a leader. As an active member and Regional Officer, I have been able to put my membership opportunities into full gear! In August, I experienced one of the most epic journeys of my life. For the first time since coming to the USA, I traveled by myself to Jackson, Mississippi! Though I was extremely nervous about flying solo from Pittsburgh to Jackson, this experience alone, gave me confidence that I never knew I had.
What college means to Belle Tran

What college means to Belle Tran

Since I was a kid, I was told that I needed to get into college because that is the only way for me to have a good career and a bright future. No one in my family has ever reached that level of education so they had high expectations of me - and I have been working so hard to meet those expectations. I always had high grades in my classes, always had my name on the Honor Roll, and even earned several awards in Math and English competitions. My family and teachers had great confidence in me. With my background, I confidently applied to the top university in my country and was planning to study the major that my parents have always wanted me to pursue: medicine.

Meet Tartela Tabassum Your Pennsylvania State President

This is Tartela Tabassum, your Pennsylvania State President and I am going to tell you what the important key is to be “The Best Leader”. As a student-led society, we know that our members are leaders. Phi Theta Kappa leaders make things better by bringing people together, helping others in need, and creating positive change in our communities. But how many of you consider yourselves as the best leader? Do you know the 10 qualities the best leader must have? From an Educational forum on the Regional Convention 2019, I learned that those 10 qualities are being a follower, a collaborator, a perceiver, be humble, experienced, knowledgeable, realistic, appreciative, a person who leads through example, and one who is true to himself.
