Follow Conclave 2012 online

Greetings from the Acacia HQ staff! We are excitedly making final preparations for our journey across the hot desert sands to our 57th biennial Conclave in St. Louis, Missouri (okay, the drive from Indianapolis to St. Louis is more like prairie than dessert, but it is going to be hot as Egypt for the duration of our stay - check out the five-day weather forecast).

Can't make it to St. Louis? Follow from home!
We invite Acacians from all over the world to join us online as brothers from across North America assemble in St. Louis to conduct the business of the fraternity and strengthen the ties of friendship.

Pastko returns to headquarters staff

We are excited to announce the return of Michael Pastko, Purdue '04, to the Acacia Headquarters staff. Brother Pastko picks up where he left off in 2010, leading the fraternity's efforts in the digital world.

In his role, Michael oversees Acacia's efforts online, spanning from to social media to new initiatives, and provides technology, graphic design, and communications support to our chapters, headquarters staff, and Acacia Fraternity Foundation. With his primary responsibilities existing online, Michael is working remotely from Boulder, Colorado, and reporting directly to Keith Bushey, Executive Director.

Brother Pastko re-joins the staff after spending the last three years in the online and mobile technology industries, creating two startup companies with customers spanning North America and Europe. Michael previously served the fraternity beginning in 2007 as Co-Director of Membership Development before taking on the role of Director of Communications. He was awarded the Order of Pythagoras in 2008 and served as Venerable Dean of the Purdue Chapter as an undergraduate.
