Experiencing the Meaning of Sisterhood

Smiles, laughter, traditions, tears…What an incredible experience we who have the privilege to be members of Greek-letter organizations share when we attend our inter/national conventions. I feel incredibly blessed because I had the opportunity to be a part of THREE conventions this summer! I shared the incredible work of the National Panhellenic Conference with my Sigma Sigma Sigma Panhellenic sisters as they gathered in Orlando and shared in their fun at the ‘Mad Hatter’ Panhellenic luncheon!  I just returned from New York City where our Phi Sigma Sigma Panhellenic sisters were celebrating their Centennial!  Dinner at the Boathouse in Central Park; ‘Walk, Run, Dance’ in Roosevelt Park in memory of our dear Josette Kaufman; sharing NPC’s successes at the Panhellenic luncheon held at Hunter College where they were founded 100 years ago; and a final night celebration that included pictures from each decade since they were founded in 1913 with members in period costumes reliving their history.  AMAZING!

Of special meaning to me was attending my own Alpha Xi Delta convention in San Francisco.  Reconnecting with sisters, meeting new sisters and listening with pride to all the accomplishments we have achieved in the last two years reminded me how fortunate I am to be a member of Alpha Xi Delta. I was humbled by the love, support and belief in me to apply those values and ideals I learned as a member of Alpha Xi Delta to my term as chairman of the National Panhellenic Conference.

Three amazing and memorable experiences!
