Will Your Chapter Accept the Challenge?

 We’re challenging each chapter to help us make the first HKN Experience virtual event a great success. Is your chapter ready to do its part?

The Goal:

To get at least 50 percent of the members of each chapter to register for the HKN Experience and attend two sessions during the 11-day event.

Here’s who we’re counting:

    1. Current student members
    2. Advisors (faculty + non-faculty)
