Alumni and Friends of the Cal Poly Pomona Chapter – We need your assistance.  Please see the letter below.

Cal Poly Pomona Brothers:

I’m writing to ask for your help in continuing our legacy at Cal Poly Pomona that we’ve left behind. As some of you may have heard, the chapter has suffered tremendous hardships through the pandemic and there are no brothers left at the chapter to continue the brotherhood. If we are to survive these hardships, we’re going to need to come together once again to provide as much aide as we, the alumni, can. After I’ve exhausted all the avenues the previous academic year, I reached out to Triangle HQ to provide some insight on how to move forward. I’ll provide the situation and how we hope to respond:

Situation: Two years of the Covid pandemic made recruitment extremely difficult because rush, initiation, pledge process had to take place virtually, for the most part. I’m sure you can imagine how hard it would be to recruit brothers if the whole process was done online. Fewer brothers led to less money to pay for dues, resulting in chapter debt. HQ staff tried to assist, but you all know how difficult it was to recruit in our school due to it being a commuter school.

Response: We have been working with HQ to come up with a plan to restart the chapter. They’ve talked to the school and CPP is giving us the opportunity to recruit without any active members on campus. The school still favors us and they want us to be successful and are ready to assist us in our revitalization effort. Triangle HQ has talented staff that they are offering to send our way to help as well. The last piece, is the alumni effort.

Here’s what we need:

  • 3 – 5 alumni with the ability to commit 5-10 hours per month as volunteer coaches/advisors
  • $3,000 to $5,000 in operating funds to support the recruitment and rebuilding effort
  • Another 5-10 alumni who would agree to attend an alumni night on campus this fall to talk with prospects about their jobs and how Triangle has helped them succeed

If we can reach these goals, Triangle will write off the existing active debts and commit to online and in-person training of the alumni volunteers. They will also dedicate a staff member to guide and assist with a fall recruitment. The goal would be to secure a core group of 5-10 men to work with the alumni to grow the chapter back to a competitive size during this academic year and be ready for recruitment in Fall 2023.

A Zoom meeting has been scheduled for Sunday evening, September 18 at 6:00 PM Pacific (link is below). We will have representation from Triangle’s National Council and HQ staff. If you have any interest in seeing Triangle remain at CPP and continuing our legacy, we hope you can make the time to meet with us during this important time. For those motivated to get involved now, please contact me directly at kurtjpaul@gmail.com. Regardless, we need alumni to step up and commit time, talent and treasure to keep us at CPP.

Your brother,
Kurt Paul cpp13
