Alpha Tau Omega Partners with Publishing Concept, Inc. (PCI) for 2013 Member Directory
This summer, ATO is working with Publising Concepts (PCI) to create our official Member Directory.
PCI is a company that creates and publishes directories for educational
institutions and membership organizations. The Alpha Tau Omega Member
Directory, which is published every four years, is very popular for
member-to-member use and helps the National Headquarters maintain our
PCI will be contacting ATO members to gather
information for the Member Directory. Members will be contacted first
through postcards and emails, then through follow-up phone calls, if
necessary. We hope you contact PCI to verify your most up-to-date
information. We understand there might be hesitation to provide your
information to just anyone, so we want you to know that their request
for your information is legitimate.
Members can purchase in advance a printed copy or an electronic CD ROM version
immediately. Your Directory will be shipped by May 2013. The Directory can help you
search and maintain contact with brothers, share your information to keep you in touch with
chapter events and activities and more.
Thank you for your
participation and for supporting this important Fraternity initiative!
If you have any questions regarding this initiative, please contact Alumni Services at 317-684-1865 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new member directory.
