Dear Sisters, Long ago, Sir Isaac Newton wrote, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” It has been an extraordinary biennium. There were times it felt magical because we achieved the impossible. And we did it by standing on the shoulders of giants. Alpha Phi has a long history of achievement. For 140 years we have been a Fraternity of visionary women. Women who are not afraid to set their sights high. Women who understand that to achieve greatness, one must risk failure. Women who jump in with both feet and are willing to get their hands dirty. Alpha Phis have always understood that results don’t come from a plan on a piece of paper. It’s the execution of that plan that has the potential to transform a dream into reality. Our great leaders of the past generation, women like Betty Mullins Jones (Gamma-DePauw), Mary Carr Boyd (Omicron-Missouri), Phyllis Sims Selig (Gamma Delta-Kansas), Margaret Knights Hultsch (Beta Nu-Duke, BetaNorthwestern) and Martha Watkins Mast (Beta Nu-Duke), just to name a few, set the bar very high. They defined excellence, and they set the standard for hard work and selfless devotion. The greatest thing about these women? They stuck around, and they became the giants for future leaders. And it continues … In a time when universities were experiencing increased enrollment in the 1980s and interest in being Greek began to grow, Sally McCall Grant (Gamma-DePauw) and Ginny Burson Struble (Beta Kappa-Denison) led Alpha Phi through a period of tremendous expansion. When Alpha Phi needed to rethink the way we were organized and managed, to reconsider and overhaul most of our governing documents, Linda Gardner Massie (Delta Alpha-East Carolina) stood fearlessly at the helm. Jean Cameron Hahm (Gamma Nu-Miami University) with her signature, no-nonsense approach, led the Fraternity through a tough implementation of a far-reaching plan. And, Crista Cate Vasina (Delta Gamma-Northern Colorado) and Laura Malley-Schmitt (Zeta Phi-MIT) took their deep knowledge of collegiate recruitment and extension and blazed a trail to places where they used to say Alpha Fi ... but not anymore. All of us stand on the shoulders of giants. I believe I have been the single greatest beneficiary of this. To serve as Alpha Phi’s International President when all of the planning, hard work and effort of hundreds and thousands of Alpha Phis is culminating in these great achievements, quite honestly, is more than I deserve. It does, however, serve to motivate me. Just as it happens to parents whose children grow up and begin their own lives, before I am ready, my job will be done. The work I did will then serve as shoulders for the next leader. This biennium I stood on the shoulders of our great membership - collegiate and alumnae alike. I wish you all could see the magnificent view (From left) Linda Boland poses with her daughter, Kiley from here. You, Alpha Phi Boland (Nu-Nebraska), Sydney Berger (Beta Epsilonmembers and chapters, have Arizona) and Laura Jen Kin Berger (Gamma Kappa-CSU/ been the biggest giants of all. Long Beach). Alpha Phi Toujours, Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU/Long Beach) International President

Alpha Phi Quarterly

fall 2012

More than 500 Alpha Phis and guests attended the Fraternity’s 69th Biennial Convention June 27-July 1 in Phoenix, Ariz. The Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa was the backdrop for sisters from across the U.S. and Canada to conduct business, build leadership skills, renew friendships and celebrate the success of Alpha Phi. Led by Director of Training, Development and Communications Denise Jung Reens (Epsilon Delta-Northern Illinois), the event featured award ceremonies, initiation, special Foundation events and displays, live entertainment, dynamic speakers and educational sessions. Highlights

The welcome dinner, hosted by toastmistress Amy Jordan Tvrdik (Omicron-Missouri), featured entertainment by AZ Rhythm Connection. Thursday highlights included the procession of chapter flags into Convention Assembled, a keynote speech about “Empowerment Through Service and Philanthropy” delivered by dynamic speaker Laura Schwartz and funded by the Susan Barrick Leadership Endowment (see page 36), initiation and a musical performance by Kat Parsons (Beta-Northwestern). Convention participants learned about Alpha Phi’s progress in extension, and a special announcement was made that Alpha Phi will return to Louisiana State University. The International Executive Board even donned Mardi Gras masks and beads to celebrate the occasion. Alpha Phi Foundation was busy Friday with the installation of the 2012-14 Foundation Board, the presentation of the prestigious Martha Mast Awards and recognition of top philanthropic collegiate and alumnae chapters during the State of the Foundation, and a Red Dress dinner that featured a new Alpha Phi’s Got Talent-themed competition (see page 36). A Friday luncheon hosted by Amy Jordan Tvrdik (Omicron-Missouri) celebrated collegiate chapters with award presentations and live entertainment. Saturday events included Alpha Phi Foundation’s Move Your Phi’t walk/run, led by celebrity host Courtney Rainville (Beta Zeta-Idaho) and emceed by Laura Schwartz (see page 36). Past IEB Director Jane Kirby Arkes (Omicron-Missouri) led the Service of Remembrance. An awards luncheon, led by toastmistress Valerie Lawlor (OmicronMissouri), recognized individual alumnae award recipients. The Candlelight Banquet was an inspiring conclusion to a memorable Convention. Deana Koonsman Gage (Gamma Iota-Texas Tech) served as toastmistress for the event. The 2012-14 IEB was installed, and prestigious awards were presented for outstanding alumnae and collegiate chapters, outstanding advisors, advisory boards and house corporation boards and Order of the Lamp.

Convention 2012 Award Winners Individual Awards Ivy Vine Award The prestigious Ivy Vine Award recognizes distinguished, long-term service, at high levels of responsibility for the overall welfare of the Fraternity and/or the interfraternal world.

Ruth Himmelman Wright Award The Ruth Himmelman Wright award honors a volunteer who has given enduring and selfless service to Alpha Phi.

 Laura Malley-Schmitt’s

 Deana Koonsman Gage

(Zeta Phi-MIT) qualities of innovation, vision and collaboration put her in the same league as Alpha Phi’s Founders. Much like them, she imagines what to others might seem impossible, bringing “blue-sky” ideas to fruition. Laura’s contributions have also impacted the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). First as an educational leadership consultant and later as a volunteer, Laura saw a flaw in the method sororities used to prepare their invitation lists during formal recruitment. This flaw led to thousands of women being lost to the Greek community. While serving on Alpha Phi’s NPC delegation, she developed the Release Figure Method (RFM), which to date is used on 95% of the campuses that participate in formal recruitment. RFM has saved many chapters from closing and placed hundreds of women in sororities. Laura not only emulates the forward-thinking qualities of our Founders, she also lives the values they held dear.

(Gamma Iota-Texas Tech) is the second recipient of this award, inaugurated in 2010 in memory of a beloved lifetime volunteer who exemplified the essence of Fraternity service, and did so without fanfare. Deana began her Alpha Phi involvement as a district governor and has actively supported both the Fraternity and Foundation in a variety of roles. She has served on both the Foundation Board of Directors and International Executive Board. She represented Alpha Phi as an alternate National Panhellenic Conference delegate. She also successfully led recolonization efforts at Alabama (Beta Mu) and Florida State (Gamma Phi) this past biennium. In her extension volunteer roles, Deana has interviewed at least 300 women for membership at numerous southern schools. In addition to countless volunteer hours on the International level, Deana has served as chapter advisor, alumnae chapter president and, over the past decade, she has been appointed international governor five times. Deana manages herself and those around her with conviction and drive while considering all angles. She keeps each team looking forward, always striving to make Alpha Phi the best.

Frances E. Willard Award The Frances E. Willard award honors Alpha Phi alumnae who have achieved outstanding success in their chosen fields and who have gained recognition on a national or international level.

Her next public service role was as Hennepin County commissioner and advisor to Governor Jesse Ventura. Today, she continues to volunteer for numerous organizations, including serving on their committees and boards. Emily Anne has received several awards: 2011 University of Minnesota Board of Regents Outstanding Achievement, 2010 Association of Junior Leagues International Mary Harriman Community Leadership, 2009 National Council for International Visitors Lorinne Emery Citizen Diplomat, 2005 Minneapolis St. Paul magazine’s Volunteer Hall of Fame inductee and 1988 University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts Alumna of Notable Achievement.

career spans the nexus of journalism, government, the private sector and the notfor-profit sector, providing a unique skill set and knowledge surrounding governance and public policy issues.

Thanks to generous funding from Alpha Phi Foundation, Alpha Phi International Fraternity is a proud sponsor of the RESPONSE ABILITY Project. This international initiative addresses bystander behavior and intervention. Bystander behavior is defined as observing a problematic situation – such as bullying, hazing, physical abuse, alcohol and drug abuse or discrimination – and not taking action to intervene. To highlight the other side of bystander behavior, the RESPONSE ABILITY Project developed the Every|Day Hero Campaign. If you are not a bystander, then you are a hero — for an individual, group of people, organization or for an issue. The campaign was designed to cause a movement that would empower people to intervene in problem situations. Alpha Phi International Fraternity is

proud of our members across North America who have already supported the RESPONSE ABILITY Project by taking the Every|Day Hero pledge, as well as those who have participated in BE THE PERSON, a conference that provided education related to the campaign. Every|Day Hero Pledge

“I pledge to make a difference for people, organizations and issues. I pledge to use my values as my compass, go beyond any barriers and take actions to foster change. I pledge to live an extraordinary life being an Every|Day Hero.” Please join Alpha Phi in supporting the Every|Day Hero Campaign by visiting and taking the Every|Day Hero pledge.

In 1989, the Miss America Organization founded the platform concept, which requires each contestant to choose a personally and socially relevant cause to represent. Since then, Miss America titleholders have used their stature to appear at thousands of public speaking engagements and charitable events to generate awareness for a variety of causes. Taylor Kinzler, a University of Rhode Island junior, first became involved with Miss America in 2008 after participating in their Outstanding Teen program. She says the professional and philanthropic impact of Miss America is something most people don’t associate with a pageant. “The program gives women a stage, a voice and an audience so they can advocate for their chosen platform,” Taylor says. “It empowers women and gives them the poise and confidence to reach for and achieve any dream.”

Developed by the Miss America Organization, the pageant provides personal and professional opportunities for young women to promote their voices in culture, politics and the community. Like Alpha Phi, it is an organization with a long-standing tradition of both scholarship and service. Each year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations award more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance. In 2000, state and local contestants collectively participated in 12,384 communityservice projects, dedicated a total of 571,177 hours and raised millions of dollars for worthy causes. “The Miss America Organization has been around for 92 years,” says Bonnie MacIsaac, a public relations coordinator at Miss America Organization. “It’s like a sorority in itself. We have more than 12,000 young women competing in our system each year, and these women are bonding with

other contestants and making lifelong friendships.” The 2013 Miss America pageant, held in January in Las Vegas, Nev., will include three Alpha Phi contestants: Joanna Guy (Delta-Cornell) will compete as Miss Maryland, Taylor Kinzler (Iota Delta-Rhode Island) is Miss Massachusetts, and Calista Kirby (Nu-Nebraska) is Miss South Dakota. All three women agree there are significant similarities between joining a sorority and competing in a pageant, but they are not what one may think. “Like most competitors, I’m familiar with the ‘pageant stereotype,’” says Joanna, a Cornell University senior majoring in American studies. Miss America has seen controversy and criticism since its inception. In the early 1920s, conservative protesters were appalled by the idea of young women parading themselves in public, and in 1968 the first organized protest of the competition was held. Protestors paraded with signs reading, “Women are enslaved by beauty standards” and “If you want meat, go to the butcher.” Since that time, the pageant has been accused of promoting unrealistic beauty ideals, and today, critics and commentators are asking if modern beauty can really be reduced to a single, representative face. But to contestants, it’s about much more than just this beauty component.

n Sept. 8, 1921, a crowd of nearly 100,000 gathered on the beachfront boardwalk of Atlantic City, N.J., hoping to catch a glimpse of a much-anticipated parade. Promised by East Coast advertisements to feature “the most beautiful girls in the land,” this parade would highlight a handful of bathing suit beauty queens from as far west as Pittsburgh and as far south as Washington, D.C. The winner would be selected by an equal combination of applause from the roaring audience and the points awarded on behalf of a panel of judges. The winner’s name was Margaret Gorman, of Washington, D.C., and she was just 16 years old. They crowned her, wrapping her in an American flag, and as a local Atlantic City newspaperman proclaimed, “We’ll call her Miss America.” Over the next six years, the parade and festivities expanded, the number of contestants rising to 86 women hailing from 36 states. What began as a beachfront festival intended to generate post-Labor Day tourist revenue for the city has evolved into a premier pageant for women. Today, it’s called Miss America – but it’s no longer just about the bathing suits.

Taylor’s chosen platform is Give the Gift of You! Volunteer, which aims at energizing community members to get out and get involved. She has developed an online resource to assist individuals in finding local volunteering opportunities: Four years ago, she founded the Kinzler Scholarship, which honors one Massachusetts high school senior each year whose service or volunteer work has made a difference in his or her community. For University of Nebraska alumna Calista Kirby, her platform is one that hits close to home: Stay Well, Get Well, American Cancer Society. She lost her grandfather to colon cancer in 2007, and in 2009 her brother was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. Calista says she is honored to share their stories and the American Cancer Society message during her year of service. Joanna Guy’s chosen platform is one that’s close to her heart, literally. It was initially sparked by a combination of her Alpha Phi involvement and family health history: Heart Disease Awareness. “Unfortunately, all four of my grandparents have suffered from some form of heart disease or stroke. It’s this personal connection to the disease that gives me such passion for the cause,” she says. Contestants put their professional and business-minded skills to use in order to promote these causes, and for the women, it is a great learning experience. “I think the most important thing I’ve learned on the 10

Miss America journey is I can accomplish anything I put my mind to,” says Taylor. “I have found an inner strength and confidence I didn’t know I had.”

“The program gives women a stage, a voice and an audience so they can advocate for their chosen platform. It empowers women and gives them the poise and confidence to reach for and achieve any dream.” Lifelong friendship

During the Miss America Pageant preparation, the 52 young women of the 2012 class will spend a significant amount of time together as they rehearse dance moves, practice their talents and review interview questions. “The women I’ve been blessed to meet are talented, kind, genuine, well-rounded, ambitious and passionate,” says Joanna. “It’s a sisterhood. I have made my best friends through the Miss America Organization, just as I have made my best friends through Alpha Phi.”

Calista, who fell in love with pageants at a young age due to her mother’s involvement, says there is friendly competition in pageants similar to that you might experience in a Panhellenic community. “Ultimately, however, we’re all similar in the fact that we’re goal-oriented females striving to make a difference in our communities,” she says. “Yes, there is competition, but it’s also an opportunity to meet some amazing young women from all over the country who will no doubt be successful during their lifetimes.” Alpha Phi has also played an integral role in each contestant’s participation in the Miss America pageant. Taylor credits her success in pageants to Alpha Phi’s emphasis on leadership roles and networking, saying it has helped her become more of a businesswoman. Calista says the University of Nebraska Greek system has helped her prepare for her role as Miss South Dakota as it encourages community involvement and high academic standards. And while Joanna agrees Alpha Phi has provided her with valuable lessons, she says one thing stands out as being particularly noteworthy – and it’s something Alpha Phi shares with the Miss America Organization. “The love and support from each group is so overwhelming,” says Joanna. “That is the main reason I am so proud and excited to represent each organization.” Tune in to the Miss America Pageant on Jan. 12, 2013, broadcast live on ABC.

Alpha Phi Recognized Among Top Donors by FSPAC More than 300 Greek organization leaders and dozens of members of Congress attended a dinner held in Washington, D.C., in support of the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee (FSPAC). Alpha Phi was recognized as one of the top donors to the FSPAC, which represents the interests of the Greek community on Capitol Hill. During the past biennium, Alpha Phi alumnae contributed more than $17,000 to support the work of the bipartisan committee. Two sisters are now seated on the FSPAC board of directors: Bonnie K. Arthur (Delta Delta-Oklahoma City) and Valerie Lawlor (OmicronMissouri). Susan McNeice (Epsilon Nu-Delaware) sits on the FSPAC’s finance committee. This is the 10th year Alpha Phi and other National Panhellenic Conference groups have met with U.S. senators and representatives to discuss key legislative issues, such as the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act (CHIA). This measure would allow donations for the improvement or construction of collegiate chapter houses to be tax deductible. In addition, the PAC focuses its efforts on other topics such as continued tax deductibility of charitable deductions, protection of our single-gender status, anti-hazing and other issues which ensure the greater good of our combined campus organizations. Alpha Phi lobbyists included two collegians: Aneka McKean (Iota GammaUniversity of the Pacific) and Emily Grimm (Gamma Omicron-Drake). Alumnae lobbyists were Bonnie K. Arthur, Kelly Benedetti (Beta OmicronBowling Green State), Kim Brannon (Gamma Rho-Penn State) and Val Lawlor. LEFT: Emily Grimm (Gamma Omicron-Drake) poses with the Frances E. Willard statue in Statuary Hall.

“The Emerging Leaders Institute was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. I’ve known I have the capability of becoming a leader of Alpha Phi someday, but at ELI, I discovered how to implement leadership into my daily life. ELI tested my strengths and weaknesses and challenged me to learn more about our sisterhood and what we stand for as Alpha Phis.” — Chantelle Fordyce (Beta Omicron-Bowling Green State) “Think of the passion you have for your chapter, then multiply that by 50. Add in a ton of laughs, a few heartfelt tears and one genuine love for Alpha Phi, and there you have it — Emerging Leaders Institute!” — Kaley Keen (Gamma Phi-Florida State) “Attending ELI gives you the tools to become a great leader, a better sister and ultimately, the best person you can be. In a period of five days you get to know a fantastic group of people from across North America who share the same goal: to become the best leaders we can be and appreciate the values we promised to uphold as sisters. ELI is simply mind-blowing, and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to attend. It is one of those moments that has changed my life.” — Samantha Padilla (Iota Beta-St. Mary’s)

Three Emerging Leaders Institutes (ELI) were held this summer at Butler University (Indianapolis, Ind.). This interactive learning experience included large and small group discussions, trust building activities and personal reflection. Topics ranged from values clarification to communication skills to stewardship. A total of 148 emerging leaders attended the Institutes and received full scholarships funded by Alpha Phi Foundation that included all travel, lodging and meals. These sophomore and junior women showed great potential as leaders! For more information and photos:, keywords: emerging leaders.

Session 2: June 6-10, 2012 “Throughout my experiences at ELI, I learned to trust others and step out of my comfort zone and into my ‘stretch zone.’ I am now ready to tackle greater challenges in my life and be the best leader I can. I would recommend this experience to any Alpha Phi.” — Paige Foster (Theta Lambda-Central Missouri) “Before ELI I thought I was a pretty good leader because I was open-minded, and I have good follow-through. ELI helped me see there is a lot more to being a leader than those qualities. I learned how to motivate sisters, caringly confront and become knowledgeable about a variety of perspectives. I feel very confident in myself after ELI because I have these methods to back me up.” — Maddie Sciullo (Theta Zeta-Florida Tech) “Meeting women from other chapters with many of the same values and beliefs was incredible. Where else can a college woman feel that sort of power and sense of belonging? It’s a feeling of support and trust everyone should experience in their lifetime.” — Sarah Perdoni (Iota Lambda-Connecticut)

“Being a participant in ELI has truly deepened my love for Alpha Phi and strengthened my pride in it as well. I wish every sister were lucky enough to go through this program and see how amazing being an Alpha Phi woman truly is!” — Lauren Drewniany (Epsilon Chi-Cal Poly) “ELI was one of the most personally enlightening experiences I’ve ever had. Alpha Phi has made me the woman I am today and has not only taught me how to continue with that growth, but how to help other women grow as well. I urge every Alpha Phi woman to apply for the Emerging Leaders Institute. Following my experience, I can honestly say I am not the same woman I was before.” — Kiley Dibbern (Delta Xi-Nebraska/Kearney) “There is truly no other experience to compare to ELI. I have never been able to go into a situation full of strangers and feel instant connection. I made lifelong friends in five days. If you want to be profoundly changed for better in regard not only to Alpha Phi, but all leadership experiences in life, this is the program to attend.” — Meghan Carey (Eta Xi-UNC/Wilmington)

Rho Celebrates 100 Years at Ohio State By Marti Timura Worth (Rho-Ohio State)

After more than two years of planning and anticipation, the Ohio State (Rho) centennial weekend was celebrated April 27-29. The Friday evening reception was hosted by Kristy Mix Beyer (Rho-Ohio State), centennial hospitality chair. Many of the alumnae in attendance had not seen sisters for 30 years or longer. Nearly 200 collegians and alumnae gathered at the chapter house Saturday for breakfast. Alumnae were excited to see the many upgrades, including the dining area and bedroom/study suites. During the morning program, Jennifer Drake Sneed (Rho-Ohio State), centennial committee treasurer, presented a gift of framed original photographs of the first Rho house to the chapter. Sisters moved into the rented house the fall after its founding on March 30, 1912, and stayed for three years while its owner, actress Elsie Janis, toured Europe. Thus, Rho became the first sorority to be domiciled at Ohio State. Alumnae had the opportunity to peruse a display of historic photographs and documents

prepared by collegians while a video presentation documenting the history project ran in the terrace room. The women enjoyed a lively serenade by the men of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Everyone then stepped out to witness the dedication of a historic marker placed in the front yard, a gift from the house corporation board (HCB). Following the dedication, collegians Cassandra Manna and Julia Goff (both RhoOhio State) led a tour of the new student union on campus. Saturday’s activities culminated in a banquet at the Ohio Union with a large contingent of alumnae from the 1960-70s and from as far away as California and Oregon. Kristin Watt (Rho-Ohio State), centennial committee and HCB member, served as emcee for the evening. International Executive Board Director Valerie Lawlor (Omicron-Missouri) presented a certificate commemorating the event on behalf of the Fraternity. Alpha Phi Foundation Board Director Jean Creamer Hodges (Rho-Ohio State) accepted a 1912 registry from Rho chapter for the Executive Office archives. Collegiate Chapter President Madison Wright (Rho-Ohio State) enlightened all regarding the chapter’s standing on campus to much applause: first in

membership, first in grades with a GPA at 3.44, first in intramural soccer and basketball the last two years and runnersup in softball and flag football. The chapter was presented a certificate from Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman’s office to mark the anniversary. Centennial committee co-chairs Marti Timura Worth and Dale Deubler (both Rho-Ohio State) were surprised by a group of collegians who took the stage to sing a beautiful rendition of “The Lily.” Graduating seniors and past presidents were recognized. Rho alumnae celebrating milestone anniversaries were also acknowledged: Marti Worth, Rebecca Fox Weil and Kiki Vaughan McClelland for 50 years of sisterhood; and Cassie Steinhilber Westlake, Marianne French Weiss and Miriam Webster Porterfield for 65 years. In addition to other gifts, the centennial committee presented a certificate to the university. Thanks to several Columbus area alumnae, 22 ceremonial robes also were presented to the chapter. At the conclusion, attendees circled the banquet hall, joined hands and sang “Carmen Ohio,” and the collegians entertained with Alpha Phi songs. Alumnae gathered again Sunday for a breakfast at the hotel on campus. It was a weekend to savor for everyone, with promises to stay in touch and share photos.

Extension Update

Alpha Phi Returns to LSU The story of Alpha Phi at Louisiana State University (LSU) begins in 1964 when the executive board accepted an invitation to colonize the university’s Alpha Rho local sorority. This prospect was very exciting to our organization, as our extension team focused on strengthening our position in the South through new chapters and increased alumnae support. As the chapter developed in the 1970s, LSU also welcomed three other National Panhellenic Conference groups in 1970, 1975 and 1979. The community grew more quickly than the demand for sorority involvement, and Alpha Phi was challenged to fill their chapter facility and remain financially viable. Special support was provided to the chapter, but ultimately the chapter was unable to continue its operation. June 1980 marked the closing of Delta Tau chapter of Alpha Phi and the conclusion of our daily presence at LSU. In the decades since, Delta Tau chapter has lived on in the memories and friendships formed by our members who attended LSU. Their Alpha Phi experience is held close to their hearts, and the opportunity for Delta Tau chapter to return to their alma mater is a dream come true. In August 2011, International President Linda Long Boland (Gamma Kappa-CSU/ Long Beach) observed LSU’s Panhellenic formal recruitment as the first step in the extension process. The Fraternity submitted a written presentation in spring 2012 and

was invited to the on-campus presentation round on June 21, 2012. Less than a week later at Alpha Phi’s Convention in Phoenix, Ariz., Linda included a surprise announcement in her State of the Fraternity address: Alpha Phi will be returning to Louisiana State! The excitement of the Convention attendees was remarkable. A video announcement from the LSU Panhellenic Council and the distribution of “Alpha Phi Loves LSU” buttons further ignited the enthusiasm. The 2012-13 academic year will be spent re-introducing the LSU community to Alpha Phi. A Facebook page and website will be launched later this fall to promote Alpha Phi events in Baton Rouge over the next year, along with updates on the housing situation. Alpha Phi will work with LSU to remodel a former sorority house prior to building a new, permanent home for Alpha Phi. The official return of Delta Tau to LSU will commence during formal recruitment in August 2013 and continue with a colonization blitz following Panhellenic bid day. Please contact Director of Marketing and Extension Megan Bouché (Epsilon-Minnesota) at for additional information about Alpha Phi’s return to LSU. Geaux Alpha Phi!

Foundation Susan Weiskittle Barrick Endowment for Leadership Enrichment Established Alpha Phi Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Susan Weiskittle Barrick (Beta OmicronBowling Green State) Endowment for Leadership Enrichment. This endowment creates a unique opportunity – through speakers and other special programming – for the leadership development and intellectual fellowship of all Alpha Phi women. It is a platform to teach advanced leadership skills, address leadership issues and barriers, and further the understanding of women’s leadership to enhance the development of female leaders in various disciplines and throughout the world. It allows Alpha Phi to return to its historic role of participation in a larger dialogue about the important issues of our time, specifically

the empowerment of women. The Barrick Endowment is designed to connect, educate and inspire Alpha Phi women of all ages and backgrounds by providing entertaining and unique experiences that fuel ideas, productivity and achievement. It is intended to expand the leadership development of participants beyond the classroom, work and home. “Alpha Phi is the perfect environment for the Barrick Endowment because of our commitment to foster responsible, progressive and innovative leadership among our members,” said Foundation Executive Director Ann Brinkman Carstensen (Zeta Delta-Iowa State). “Alpha Phi’s proven success in leadership training combined with our strong relationships with business leaders and entrepreneurs provides a distinctly conducive environment for the vision of Susan Weiskittle Barrick’s endowment gift to be fulfilled.”

We Have a New Mission Statement! Alpha Phi Foundation … Advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy. After eight months of work, the Alpha Phi Foundation Board of Directors unanimously approved a new mission statement which was revealed to members at Convention 2012. The process started in September 2011 when the Board held an in-person meeting at the Executive Office in Evanston. They were joined by Brooke Wiseman, nonprofit management consultant and chief marketing and development officer at YWCA, who facilitated the discussion. Using marketplace research, a SWOT analysis and findings from a 2008 internal branding study, a list of potential statements was created. The Board vetted the statements in the months that followed and approved a final version during its April 2012 in-person meeting. “Our focus is the same,” said Diane Spry Straker (Delta Alpha-East Carolina), 2012-14 Foundation Board Chair, “but our message is now more streamlined to get to the essence of who we are.”

20th Anniversary of 1872 Society This year, Alpha Phi Foundation celebrates the 20th anniversary of the 1872 Society. Established in September 1992 and inaugurated during the 120th year of our Fraternity’s founding, this special giving society recognizes donors who have contributed $1,872 or more in their lifetime support of Alpha Phi Foundation’s vital programs. The extraordinary support and commitment of the sisters who wear the 1872 pin is a tribute to the ideals of our sisterhood. Through their generosity and loyalty, they are advancing women’s lives through the power of their philanthropy. To join the 1872 Society, visit or contact Director of Philanthropic Campaigns Nancy Owen Craig (Beta Chi-Bucknell) at

Power of 1,000 … Our Million Dollar Mission In 2000, Alpha Phi Foundation created the Power of 100. Our goal at that time was to interest 100 women in contributing $1,000 a year to further the mission of the Foundation. In that first year, 120 women made gifts at that level. Today, the number of participants is closer to 200. But in true Alpha Phi fashion, we want to go bigger and bolder! Starting this fall, the Foundation will shift Power of 100 to Power of 1,000 – inspiring 1,000 women to make a $1,000 annual gift through a single gift or monthly gifts. This million dollar mission will advance women’s lives through the power of philanthropy. With 1,000 women giving an annual gift of $1,000, we will be able to increase the value and quantity of scholarships, which is so important these days with rising education costs. We will help more women in need through the Forget Me Not Fund. We will make more leadership programs happen for all members, which is critical knowing that women are paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men. We will give additional grants to the many worthy women’s heart initiatives that apply for our annual Heart To Heart Grant. Together, our Power of 1,000 women will effect important change. They will take a stand for a better future. They will advance women’s lives. Each Power of 1,000 donor receives a beautiful custom scarf (pictured) designed by New York fashion designer Marisol Deluna (Alpha Lambda-Alumna Initiate). It is a token of our appreciation, and an outward symbol of their commitment to empower the next generation of women to be philanthropic leaders. Become a Power of 1,000 woman today!

Foundation at Convention 2012

Forget Me Not Field Blooms at Convention 2012 “Let us choose the blue forget-me-not as our flower … so that we shall always remember our sisters, remember Alpha Phi.” — Martha Foote Crow Alpha Phi Foundation’s Forget Me Not Field made its debut at Convention 2012. Sisters gave $10 forget-me-nots in honor, celebration or memory of their Alpha Phi sisters. All honorees received an acknowledgement letting them know a donation to the Foundation was made in their honor. The names of these special sisters were displayed in the Foundation’s interactive Forget Me Not Field at Convention and on the website: Through the generosity of sisters “planting” it forward, more than $20,000 was raised for the Forget Me Not Fund. Gifts through this fund provide assistance to alumnae who are facing severe financial distress, serious health issues, the consequences of natural disasters and urgent family crisis, and to collegians who face an interruption of education due to unforeseen personal or financial struggles. These funds offer Alpha Phis in need the greatest gift of all: the knowledge that their sisters care and are always there to help. Thank you to everyone who helped our field bloom. Together, we are advancing women’s lives through the power of philanthropy and celebrating our commitment to always remember our sisters, remember Alpha Phi!

Red was in the air on Friday night during the Foundation’s Convention dinner as Alpha Phis gathered to celebrate the most talented collegiate and alumnae members of Alpha Phi International Fraternity. During the high-energy Alpha Phi’s Got Talent competition, the top five finalists vied for bragging rights, the Alpha Phi’s Got Talent title and the opportunity to raise funds for one of Alpha Phi Foundation’s vital programs. Taking the stage to wow the audience were Joanna Guy (Delta-Cornell) singing for women’s heart health; Oda Evan Gjovag (Epsilon Upsilon-CSU/Northridge) singing for Heritage; Alison Miles (Iota Mu-Georgia Tech) singing for the Forget Me Not Fund; Jordan Paulsen (Nu-Nebraska) and Becca Stouder (Delta Delta-Oklahoma) clogging for Scholarships; and Jennifer Larsen (OmegaTexas) singing for Leadership. The audience voted with their dollars, and Joanna Guy was named the winner with her performance of “Popular” from the Broadway sensation “Wicked.” Together, these talented Phis helped to raise more than $23,000 to support Foundation programs.

Move Your Phi’t ... Putting Our Mission in Motion 6:00 a.m. comes mighty early when you’re attending Convention. But that didn’t stop the more than 100 dedicated Alpha Phis who assembled in the pre-dawn light to move their phi’t along a 5k course on the beautiful Arizona Biltmore grounds. Courtney Rainville (Beta Zeta-Idaho), a recent participant in NBC’s “Biggest Loser,” inspired all as she led participants through a series of warm-up exercises before the 5k began. Bars generously donated by LUNA gave everyone a needed boost of energy, and keynote speaker Laura Schwartz shared her enthusiasm while celebrating sisters as they crossed the finish line. Foundation Board members were on hand to present everyone with a Move Your Phi’t finishers medal to celebrate completion of the course. Prior to Convention, participants were given the opportunity to raise funds for Alpha Phi Foundation via Crowdrise, an innovative online fundraising tool. A total of $19,000 was raised to fund

leadership training, scholarships, Forget Me Not grants, heart health initiatives and heritage projects supported by Alpha Phi Foundation. Congratulations, and a heartfelt thank you, to all our sisters who moved their phi’t to advance the lives of women!
