Fuqua Receives Gold Chapter Status Again!

Net Impact has announced the 2012-2013 Gold and Silver standings, awarding Fuqua the prestigious GOLD again!

These standings – based on meeting a rigorous set of requirements for activities, programming, and membership reach – identify the most outstanding chapters in the Net Impact network, which includes 300+ chapters around the world.

Fuqua’s activities this year were led by Presidents Abigail Lundy and Elana Boehm and a fantastic leadership team that brought a diversity of events to the Fuqua community (over half of whom are members of the Net Impact Club).

They began the year with a quarter of the First Year class taking part in a community event called “Day in Durham.”  In February, the Chapter hosted the annual Sustainable Business and Social Impact conference which is the largest of its kind in the southeast region.  Throughout the year, the Chapter offered numerous opportunities to learn about trends in the fields of social impact and sustainability, advance careers through alumni panels and career treks, and socialize with a community of like-minded students.

As Net Impact CEO Liz Maw stated, “These chapters demonstrate just how much can be accomplished when committed individuals decide to make an impact through the work they do.”

We are so proud that Fuqua’s Net Impact Club is consistently rated amongst the top chapters in the world – even winning Graduate Chapter of the Year this past year!  The Chapter’s new leadership – led by Jennifer Fluder and Michelle Kirby – are excited to continue the momentum for the coming year.  They are already working with their leadership team on new initiatives and will be kicking things off with Day in Durham 2013 on August 17th.
