Pi Sigma Epsilon - EKU - Eta Chi Chartering Event


PSE is the only national co-ed professional fraternity in the fields of sales, marketing and management. However, it is open to all majors. PSE gives its members the chance to gain hands-on experience through experiential learning opportunities, participate in conferences both regionally and nationally, and network with professionals through PSE’s corporate partner program. PSE has 63 active chapters at universities and colleges across the country.

PSE and Faculty Advisors

On November 17, 2021, a team from PSE national came to Richmond, KY to lead our officers and faculty advisors in the official chartering ceremony which was established in 1956. Joe Ashbee, past President of PSE National and VP of Sales for Infantino, Inc. along with Sam Mischio, Chapter Consultant led the ceremony.  25 EKU students and officers are now the official chartering members of our EKU Eta Chi chapter.  The Chapter is officially established as a 501 (c) 7 organization and Eta Chi is the first PSE Chapter in the state of Kentucky. 

The principals of service, honor and maintaining the highest degree of professionalism in sales, are the basis of the ceremony. The ceremony incorporates each element of the PSE logo (below) and is focused on the rational principals  of professional sales and service that govern our chapter activities and reason for being.  This was a deeply moving and meaningful ceremony for each of our students.
