Delta Omicron International Music Fraternity Operations and Coronavirus
The Delta Omicron National Board is continuing to monitor the news about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We understand that schools across the country are in a hybrid model, closed, open, or some combination for an indefinite period of time. We know that this is challenging for collegiate and alumni chapters. We want all of our members to be safe and healthy.
We know that being away from your chapter is not ideal. If your school is operating on a hybrid model, please contact the executive office with that information: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please follow guidelines from your school and public health agencies.
General Membership: No matter the status of your school, Delta Omicron members are still Delta Omicron members for life. The National Board members are here to support you however we can.
Meeting Requirements: Do your best and take your cue from your school. If your school is on a hybrid model, hold chapter meetings and events virtually. Alumni chapters should postpone all in-person meetings. Take advantage of the wide range of services over the internet to hold meetings such as; Google Hangout, Skype, WebEx, FreeConferenceCall.com, Zoom, Slack, or TWEN.
Holding Elections: Consider holding elections online through SurveyMonkey.
Initiation: Contact the First Vice-President for information about hosting a virtual initiation. email@example.com.
Fraternity Supplies: If you need supplies, the executive office is open and sending out supplies. Please email the executive office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Financial Obligations: Please pay your financial obligations as soon as possible by check or through PayPal. New alumni can immediately start paying toward their life membership.
Reports: Please continue to complete and submit reports to the national board.
National Virtual Musicale: Delta Omicron is still hosting a National Virtual Musicale for members. Record your performance, upload it to social media, and tag us with #DONationalMusicale.
