Candidacy Information

Office Sought:

National Collegiate Representative

Vision for Sinfonia:

I want Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia to continue with it's great mission, expanding music in America and spreading the good word of our brotherhood. I want to give province Governors more resources to effectively govern their province, and I want to strengthen the our provinces, as I believe they are an important link to the collegiate body. I want to reactivate many inactive chapters, and I want to give alumni the resources to be able to help with their reactivation. I want to make sure all alumni are kept engaged with the brotherhood, this mean expanding on the alumni newsletter and creating more alumni associations within the nation. I also want to make sure or collegiate brothers feel like they have a voice to speak to on the NEC.

Why Are You Running:

I believe I have what it takes to help this fraternity continue down it's path in greatness. While president of my chapter I helped us work through the Covid19 pandemic, and I was a strong voice in our province offering help to chapters in need. From getting them resources to be able to perform their rituals to finding people to fill spots in their rituals, to aiding brothers move their rush class from yearly to one-a-semester, I have considerable experience working with collegiate brothers and presidents to help them create the best Sinfonians they possibly can.

Qualifications for Office:

I believe my considerable experience being an active voice for both my chapter and my province has prepared me for this experience. I have worked frequently on projects with the many brothers of my province, and the experiences I have accrued through that has helped me learn what it takes to be a leader in the community. I will be able to use these skills on the national level to help the fraternity move forward, and to complete my goals I set out for above.
