Brother Scott Knapp (Florida State, 2002) To Be Installed as 76th Supreme Master

Tomorrow (Saturday, August 13), Brother Scott Knapp (Florida State, 2002) will be installed as the 76th Supreme Master – International President -- of Alpha Epsilon Pi. It might appear random or almost lucky that a Cincinnati native attended college across the country at Florida State and joined one of AEPi’s smallest chapters and, 20 years after graduation, is on the verge of being installed as the fraternity’s highest officer but, as it is said, luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. “Growing up in Cincinnati, it is fair to say that attending Florida State wasn’t really on my radar.

With #AEPi109 right around the corner, we're taking some time this week to introduce the 2022-23 chapter services team who will be working with our chapters to grow and prosper during the coming year. As mentioned in last week's Rob's Report, AEPi International has hired several new Regional Directors this year to provide chapters with more seasoned guidance. As anybody who has worked for AEPi "on the road" as a field secretary, chapter consultant or educational leadership consultant will tell you, having the opportunity to help AEPi chapters and Brothers fulfill their potential is the best job in the world.

Rob’s Report: Moving Into the Future

You may have noticed that there are some changes at AEPi headquarters. I am excited to share some of these changes with you and discuss a bit about what is happening and why. In 2019, the Supreme Board formed a taskforce that was asked to study and quantify what makes AEPi successful at what we do. In other words, find out what about our programs, structure, people, methods, and experience turns AEPi men into leaders of the Jewish community. There was no question that AEPi makes a huge impact on our members but answering the question as to how, is [...]

Brother Micah Mador (CU-Boulder, 2014)

As far as philanthropy is concerned, a little can go a long way. Brother Micah Mador (CU-Boulder, 2014) serves on the board of directors of Pledge 1% Colorado, a nonprofit organization that helps companies give 1% of their equity, product, profit, or time back to the community. One percent may not seem like a lot, but it definitely adds up. Growing up in Sacramento, California, Brother Mador had a pretty standard, conservative Jewish upbringing. He attended synagogue, went to Jewish day school until 3rd grade and went to public school with a bunch of other Jewish kids. He also did [...]

VOICES: 24 Hours Later and I’m Still In Shock

By: Andrew Neiberg (Florida State, 2007), AEPi International’s Director of Campus Operations (Editor’s Note: Brother Andrew Neiberg and his family were with Supreme Governor Michael Waitz (DePaul, 2009) and his family at yesterday’s Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Il along with scores of other AEPi alumni and family members. Brother Neiberg wrote this first-hand account of the shooting and the immediate impacts on his family. To our knowledge, no one in the AEPi family was hurt at the parade but, given the community, it is almost certain that many AEPi Brothers have a connection to someone who was […]
