NUC will be in San Antonio, TX for MLK Weekend (January 13-15th). Below is a letter from National President:
As you may recall, at National Conference in Orlando this past summer, the National Board and Alpha Phi Chapter announced plans to hold the 2012 National Undergraduate Council (NUC) Conference in Las Vegas. I regret to inform you that we will be unable to go through with those plans. Immediately after National Conference, our team began to research the logistics of holding NUC conference in Las Vegas. We learned that due to recent cuts by the Nevada State Legislature, the University of Nevada at Las Vegas would be unable to host our conference free of charge.
In fact, the cost of holding NUC conference in Vegas would have cost the fraternity thousands of dollars in undergraduate funding. I asked Michael Teasdale, David Williams and the Undergraduate Affairs department to speak with as many undergraduate brothers as possible to present them with this reality and ask for their advise on a proper course of action. The feedback was almost unanimous in the undergraduates’ belief that the fraternity should not spend such a large sum on a NUC conference.
I sincerely apologize to those of you who were planning to spend a great weekend in Las Vegas. I promise that our team will work hard to provide you with just as great of an experience in San Antonio. Thus, the NUC conference will be held on MLK weekend, January 13-14th, 2012 in San Antonio, TX.
Thank you, and see you in San Antonio in January!
