As with all facets of life, this association and its mission and charter relies on the generosity of the membership at-large, and their willingness to contribute financially to support our programs.
The Association’s mission and charter includes:
- Fellowship. Just like being an undergraduate Frater, being an alumni allows us to maintain and encourage the relationships we built during our time at GMU. One of the main aspects of our AA is to enhance the ability to maintain and grow the fellowship we have with other TKE alumni.
- Scholarship. We created the Frater Gene Barnes Memorial Scholarship fund some 30 years ago. Frater Gene brought much to our local chapter, and in his honor, we hope to continue his legacy by sponsoring undergraduate TKEs in their educational endeavors.
- Networking. What good is an association, post completion of your academic studies, if you cannot leverage the greater association to advance your business career. With 50 years of graduates, at all stages of various business careers (Doctors, Lawyers, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, etc.), our AA will further your career. We strive to further the professional development of all mu-omega alumni.
In order to support the association mission, we’ve established funding goals to support this mission. The association board unanimously approved the following funds distribution including Fellowship (10% of your dues to support administrative and fellowship programs), Networking (40% of your dues to support programs focusing on broadening our ability to enable professional networking), and lastly Scholarship (40% of your dues will go directly to the Gene Barnes Memorial Scholarship Fund administered by TKE IHQ).
