As we move forward in the coming year, the Beta Pi Alumni Association (AA) is ready to embrace the challenges and opportunities that await us.

The untimely passing of Gregg Ormond this past year has left a huge void in our organization and our hearts. His dedication along with the time and effort he devoted to the Beta Pi Chapter over the past 40+ years cannot be matched by a single individual.  

As the new AA President, I will do my utmost to help to maintain the excellence of Beta Pi, now and in the future. I look forward to working with my fellow officers, Bruce Wolfson, Joel Catania, and Morty Cohen, with the best interests of Beta Pi to guide us.

Our first and most important goal is to continue to improve upon how we keep our undergraduates and alumni better informed, as this will foster loyalty and increased member involvement. We encourage all members to become more involved and look forward to more of you volunteering your time to assist us.

How You Can Help:

We are seeking alumni who meet the following criteria and are willing to step forward:

1)      Alumni with General Contractor knowledge / skills who can assist Rich Epstein, who has done a terrific job in helping to maintain the Chapter House.

2)      Lawyers who can assist in evaluating complex agreements that the Chapter has with the University and help to advise the AA and Chapter accordingly.

3)      Brothers of All Years to become more active in the activities and financial support of the AA.

Let us work together to ensure Pi Kappa Alpha remains one of the premier fraternities at Penn. I look forward to connecting with many fellow alumni during the coming year. The AA can be reached at
