New GroupMe Chats!

The SHPE Executive Board has made a few decisions regarding the General Body GroupMe. In order to better regulate the communication of relevant information, the following changes will be made: 
  • A new GroupMe called LeaderSHPE has been made, in this GroupMe ONLY SHPE Executive Board members may post messages. If a non E-Board member posts a message, they will receive a warning. If they post a second message, this will result in their removal from the LeaderSHPE GroupMe for a week. If a member has an important professional announcement that they want included in the LeaderSHPE GroupMe, they may send the announcement to an E-board member for approval and the E-board member will post the message. The current GroupMe (SHPE@OSU) will be renamed MemberSHPE. Here members may share events and ideas freely given they follow general GroupMe Etiquette.
Members are encouraged to join both GroupMe chats as LeaderSHPE will be where all the important information will be distributed and MemberSHPE will serve as an outlet to communicate with the rest of the SHPE Familia.
