Dear Alumni, 

My name is Andrew Salecker, and I am honored to be writing to you as the newly elected High Alpha of Lambda Beta Zeta. For the upcoming calendar year, our chapter has elected a strong group of leaders which will be working vigorously on continuing to improve the many different elements of our fraternity, including the growing relationship between the active chapter and our strong alumni community. In this upcoming year alone, we will be celebrating both our 50th year on campus as well as the initiation of Lambda Beta 1000, two remarkable milestones for our chapter. I will be working closely with our new High Rho Christopher Mule and a large group of alumni to create a wide array of opportunities to give each and everyone one of you the chance to be involved and to contribute to our ever-growing chapter during this incredibly important year. 

With your support, I am confident that we will be able to execute the best year that Lambda Beta Zeta has ever had!
