President’s Note

Greetings SPO Members:

Several weeks ago I posted on our rather large transition: working on the adding of an international university SPO chapter! We have recently welcomed our first International university chapter at Akdeniz University in Antalya, Turkey! Drs. Jason Holdsworth and Ozgur Arun will serve as Chapter Advisors!

This brings us to an update as well on our name. As we now have the Virtual and International Chapter, as well as the Chapter at Akdeniz University, the SPO Board voted and the Advisors approved to change the name of Sigma Phi Omega to “Sigma Phi Omega, The International Academic Honor and Professional Society in Gerontology!”

Board member openings are in the process of being posted! We would love to have you join us!
