For those of you that have been reading JerseySmarts.com for a while, you know that each year during Super Bowl weekend I typically take a trip out to St. Louis for an annual conference. This is a conference to teach undergraduates in my fraternity from around the nation different leadership strategies. As a member of the Board of Trustees for the fraternity’s foundation, though, I now attend these national events now to talk about different ways to raise money and how to strategically use the funds that we’ve already raised.
It’s a whole different world being a Trustee for the foundation, really.
There are a few entries that are set to automatically load while I’m away so you’ll have something to read on this site over the next few days. And, for what it’s worth, I think that this is going to be my last trip to this conference so long as it continues to be held during Super Bowl weekend. As you’ll read in the entries that are set to automatically load over the next few days, I’ve been finishing up (or am getting ready to finish up) some major projects for the foundation that will allow me to regain some of my free time in the coming months and years.
Once those projects are completed, I’ll have less of an obligation to attend these awkwardly scheduled events (it’s Super Bowl weekend!) and thus I’ll be able to spend some more time working on items outside of the fraternity. Plus, I won’t be running late to my own Super Bowl parties any more!
Enjoy the next few entries as they’re uploaded and I’ll be back next week!
