This is why I do it
I spent the weekend at my regional sorority seminar with four officers from the chapter I advise. It was a great weekend--I got to know these officers better and got to connect with other sorority sisters from the west and northwest.
As we were flying home, I suggested to the president that she create an opportunity when the officers who attended could share what they learned with the chapter so they would understand why the chapter paid to send them. So last night at their weekly chapter meeting, the president yielded the floor to one of the officers who attended, TT, by explaining that she was one of the four officers who had been at this seminar. TT said:
One of the best things about this weekend was getting to meet girls from other chapters. We were sitting with some girls from Nevada, who told us their advisers weren't around and didn't really help them much. They pointed to Angie and asked, 'Does she work at international headquarters?' One of the things we learned this weekend is what a great adviser we have. So, to recognize that she knows, like, everything about the sorority, we made her the 'Sorority Encyclopedia' award./Blush and grin./
