Google view of house. Not immense. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.6804...7i16384!8i8192

Haha, I typed Indiana in my response to you, even though I did actually search for results in Illinois.

But still, that does NOT look like enough space.

I just happen to work at DU on Josephine and heard about this over the weekend. As someone whose office is a former chapter house on the same street, it is absolutely going to be a tight squeeze for chapter and international operations in the same space. The houses barely sleep 20 as at is. But, welcome to the neighborhood, I guess!

Might their Big Idea, in moving to a smaller HQ, be to go high-tech and modern by going completely digital? This would include no physical, only digitized/computerized, displays of furnishings/flags/other historic APhi items in the new HQ building.

Digitization might mean one could view a lot more of the archived APhi historic items (tea sets, gavels, desks, etc) in one sitting.

Which might then mean all the historic, physical properties and records would end up in storage (but preferably NOT at the dreaded Exec Director's nearby home).

Zoom-type meetings may become permanent for all the APhi Boards, eliminating the necessity of large meeting and sleeping rooms in a new national APhi HQ building. Any necessary trainings for important groups of APhi collegians (such as Educational Leadership Consultants) would also be via a Zoom-type manner rather than at HQ.

APhi is also must be very careful how it divides, and uses, the space it will be sharing with a chapter. Taxmen will frown on incorrect usages/designations of that type of space.

I hope Alpha Gam never does this. Our historical display room is one of my favorite parts of visiting IHQ!

Do you really think this is the aim of our organizations? I'd be very surprised to find that historical items are reduced to a virtual archive. But perhaps I'm naive in believing those items will be preserved and displayed forever.

I will say, though, following the pandemic, I wouldn't be shocked to see some organizations downsizing. With work-from-home options becoming the norm, large amounts of office space may not be needed.
