Some of our brothers met up with our big bro chapter, Iota Alpha, and our little bro chapter, Lambda Psi, at DCI West this past Sunday at Stanford Stadium! We hope to see everyone again at SD4!

This weekend, Iota Pi had the pleasure to host our annual Band Leadership Conference, also known as BLC. Beginning in 2013, this event is put on by our own brothers, who plan, coordinate, and conduct leadership and musicianship workshops at Cal Poly. This year, workshops include topics on constructive criticism and feedback, leading a sectional, time management and goal setting, and marching tips. Workshops are then followed by a reading band, where brothers can play alongside conference attendees. BLC is geared towards high school students in San Luis Obispo County who are musicians aspiring to be leaders. Sarah Wattenberg, this year’s conference chair, stated that this festival’s importance and goal is, “to make music have a positive influence on high schools kids in hopes that they want to continue after high school.” We hope that this conference has been successful in continuing music following their secondary education, and cannot wait to host next year’s conference.

Iota Pi is proud to announce that our current President, Micky “malibu” Welther, has been selected to become the Western District Secretary-Treasurer! She is in her third year at Cal Poly for statistics with a focus on actuarial science and she is the color guard captain in the Mustang Band. Her goal in her new position is to focus on reaching out to connect the district with individual chapters. Micky says that, “officers can bring new ideas to their chapters if they are open to ask questions and gather insight from others … the option to reach out to brothers with the same duties is valuable.” She also wants to generate a comprehensive list of all fundraising projects by all chapters as well as a set of resources for templates of minutes for other serving as Recording Secretary.
Micky currently serves as our chapter President and in the past has served as the chapter Recording Secretary. She shows a consistent enthusiasm for serving the Cal Poly bands and the music community in San Luis Obispo. We are very happy that she will be involved with the district in this way and are excited to see what she will do! Micky is always striving to improve the chapter and we have no doubt that she will continue to help improve Kappa Kappa Psi on a national level.
