There is something special about a recolonization…

As a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, I have been through so many stages with these wonderful women.  I joined in the fall of 1996 at Sigma Phi Chapter at California State University Northridge.  Although I didn’t travel far for college, I wanted to be a part of something that was bigger than I was.  Sorority life reminded me of Girl Scouts and AOII was my Black Prince. (those of you who know me will get that reference).  My collegiate experience was great although I was not considered a big joiner.  I did community service and helped where I was needed; even spent a year living in the AOII house; but ultimately missed out because I never took an office, chaired a committee, or took a little sister.

BUT, I am making up for time lost now.  As an alumnae member, I am finding the opportunities to volunteer for AOII are exceed my expectations.  I had 5 years as the Las Vegas alumnae chapter president.  I chaired and founded the Southern Nevada Alumnae Panhellenic and am completing my last year on the executive board as president. I served as financial advisor for 2 wonderful collegiate chapters (after all numbers are my passion). I am now the network specialist of development for the Lambda Iota chapter at UC San Diego.  Lambda Iota is a new colony which is reborn.   This weekend is the installation of the chapter after being dormant for some years.  Reminds me of the time Black Price was dormant and I brought them back.

Stay tuned for the after post of how installation and rose banquet went.
