2012 Sneak Peek Directory Subscribe Advertise SMERF PLANNING GUIDES FRATERNAL TREND: need to keep them happy. Pamper them a bit. If you receive a complaint from a member— even if it sounds unimportant—make sure that she/he has somebody's personal line to call. This will make the member feel special and full of good will for their association. On the other hand, when a member mentions good personal service received from a staff member, recognize that staffer in public. As that old but powerful adage states, praise the behav- ior that you want repeated. ■ University towns are fitting locales for fraternal groups to meet and we see no better example of that than in the North Carolina Piedmont Triad, where the cities of Greensboro and Winston-Salem are home to several universi- ties and colleges—and host fraternal groups throughout the year. Greens- boro is home to The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina A&T State University, Guilford College and Greensboro College. And, there may be no better time for sororities and fraterni- ties to visit Greensboro than during the annual Greek Festival, which takes place for three days in Sep- tember. Itʼs a time to enjoy live Greek music and dancing, authentic Greek cuisine and pastries, and shop the Greek Market.
