The goal of Alpha Eta Rho is to bring together students from all majors, disciplines, and backgrounds in order to celebrate the passion of aviation. Beta Chapter at Purdue University incorporates both collegiate and professional life to prepare its members not only for the rigor of academia, but the demands they will face in business. Utilizing trips, speakers, and other events, I hope to increase the value of members' experiences and also increase their intrigue and knowledge in this ever-changing field of which we have chosen to become a part. Ultimately, time spent in Alpha Eta Rho will help mold them into professionals we can be proud of.
As President of the Beta Chapter, I have several major goals I wish to accomplish:
- Open communication with other chapters, both locally and nationally
- Utilize the Committee layout to achieve group goals and expose members to group management
- Increase Beta Chapter's reputation amongst the national fraternity
As we move onward I hope these goals will form a structure from which our chapter can continue to grow, allowing for increased activity and opportunity in the future.
