This issue features a variety of Alpha Phi standout alumnae and highlights the course each took to achieve success. As you read more about

Alpha Phi is Proud of our Distinguished Alumnae

these remarkable women, you’ll notice they share common qualities: healthy principles to guide them, a strong desire to succeed and an overwhelming pride in their Alpha Phi affiliation. When an Alpha Phi succeeds and is recognized for outstanding career or volunteer achievements, we are all proud. Camaraderie of this caliber is extraordinary, and I am certain you feel as fortunate as I to have gained and maintained it through our Fraternity. I witnessed that same group spirit and enthusiasm during the recent International Executive Board’s (IEB) planning sessions. For the past six months, the IEB has been busy working with and translating policy governance principles into an operating framework for Alpha Phi. The policy governance model is ideal for our organization because it clearly defines roles of the board and staff. This means each works toward well-defined goals – those closest to the vision of Jean Cameron Tindall Alpha Phi members. Ultimately, adopting policy governance means Alpha Phi members will realize a higher level of satisfaction from the Fraternity. You’ll recognize a new connection with the IEB as we strive to represent all sisters’ best interests. In short, your opinions count now more than ever. This is an exciting time for all Alpha Phis, as the future promises us many new successes. We are working today to make certain our goals will stand the test of time and carry on to the next group of leaders ... and the leaders who follow them. It is our future alumnae of distinction for whom we pave the way. We can’t wait to see who’s next in line to make us proud. With the unique support of our sisters, there are no limits to success. We only hope dedication to maintain Alpha Phi’s excellence makes their journeys a bit easier.

From Disney Film to Provocative Play Kimberly Williams Has Come A Long Way Since her Debut in Father of the Bride By Christine Spiegel

Kimberly Williams (B-Northwestern) was catapulted into the spotlight almost a decade ago with her big screen role as Annie Banks in Father of the Bride, juggling her newfound stardom, college and Alpha Phi. This fall, she is featured in a less wholesome role in the ABC® pilot sitcom According to Jim co-starring Jim Belushi (Saturday Night Live) and Courtney Thorne-Smith (Ally McBeal). “I always wanted to act,” says Kim, as she introduced herself. “When I was at Northwestern, I was a very, very small fish. I didn’t get cast in any parts. I had done commercials, so I had some experience … I just figured I would go back to New York after college.” But that all changed when she landed the coveted role in the 1991 Father of the Bride, the remake of the 1950 Spencer Tracy classic. After 15-hour days filming, press junkets and all the hoopla that goes into starring in a movie, Kim returned to Northwestern for her junior year, living in Alpha Phi’s Beta chapter house. But she was no longer an anonymous Northwestern student. She recalls the first time her celebrity hit her: “My address was still listed. This stranger came upstairs with flowers and asked me to coffee. I was so shaken. I felt very vulnerable for the first time.” Alpha Phi still provides sense of home Despite that incident, she says her sisters and the chapter house made her feel safe, “I felt protected. Living in the house was a great experience – very homey.” Today, Alpha Phi continues to provide her that sense of home away from home. “It’s neat to visit schools where there are Alpha Phi chapters and know they are your sisters,” Kim says. She’s even crossed paths with other distinguished Alpha Phi alumnae through her work. She recently appeared on KCBS-TV Los Angeles’ Woman 2 Woman, co-hosted by Ann Martin (-Washington) and Catherine Anaya (B-USC). “They were so sweet,” says Kim. “Whenever I meet Alpha Phis, they’re always so friendly and nice.” Actors serve as role models In addition, Kim says she’s been fortunate to work with many actors she admires. Diane Keaton, who

played Kim’s mother in Father of the Bride and its sequel, was her mentor for some time and remains someone she respects. When asked whether the legendary Steve Martin, who acted as Kim’s father in the movie, offered her any “parental” advice when she started out in the business, she laughs, “Steve told me I’d need a good therapist.”

OFFERING HER SUPPORT Kim is proud of her involvement with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. She got involved during Northwestern University’s Dance Marathon in September 2000 and became an official spokesperson in November, speaking on their behalf at Association of Fraternity Advisor’s (AFA) annual meeting. “They have a great program called Caring for Kids 101,” Kim says. “I also have a personal desire to fight for the cause. My dance teacher in college died of AIDS a year after I graduated. The more I learned about the foundation, the more I wanted to be a part of it.”

Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey and Jodie Foster are among other actors she admires. And similarities between her and Foster are notable. Both actors put their careers on hold to complete their studies. Both realized their goals at an early age and resisted the temptations of celebrity. And Kim hopes to continue to follow in Foster’s footsteps. “I’d like to direct in the future,” Kim says, adding that she aspires to achieve Foster’s success as an actor/director. Sorority provides support Fans remember Kim’s role in 1996 romantic drama Relativity. In the ABC® television series, she says her character reflected a struggle most 20somethings face: discovering who they are and where they belong in life’s big picture. Kim says for her in particular, Alpha Phi and her sorority sisters provided a base of needed support: “My closest female friends today are from Alpha Phi. We were all going through something important together. It was a great place to build strong friendships.” Those friends also support the new direction Kim has taken with her character roles. She says her new role as Dana (sister of Courtney Thorne-Smith’s character and sister-in-law to Jim Belushi’s) appealed to her “because it was a different kind of role. I play a single, cynical sidekick – as opposed to the wholesome roles I’ve been known for. I’ve been trying to branch out. Comedy seemed like something different to try.”

women in both cities (Brett Butler and Tonya Pinkins at New York City’s Westside Theatre; Carol Kane and Phylicia Rashad at Beverly Hills’ Canon Theater). The script was so moving, so funny … totally rewarding.” Kim says her parents attended one performance, which she dedicated to them despite being unsure how they would react to the sometimes risqué subject matter. At the end of the show, she says, “They both swung their arms up in the air, cheering. My dad yelled out, ‘You go girl!’ It was a great moment.” Kim grew up near New York City, where most of her family still lives. “I go back as much as I can. It’s becoming more and more important to me,” she says. From the big screen to theater to television, Kim says she doesn’t prefer one medium. “I like being able to mix it up,” she says. “I would like to do another play, another film and come back to this. Each is different.”

Branching out to the extreme Kim’s desire to avoid “good girl” typecasting is the reason she accepted roles in both the New York and Los Angeles productions of the avant-garde threewoman stage show, Vagina Monologues. The world tour of the production launched Valentine’s Day 1998 as the global V-Day movement to stop violence against women and is still running today. Created from Eve Ensler’s best-selling book of the same name, the show mixes the incredibly intimate with amazingly universal views on women’s topics. Kim says being involved “was the most liberating experience. I was in it with two other wonderful

“I’m very lucky that I am where I am.” Kim says returning to finish her college education was critical: “I know ultimately, it will make me a better performer, writer and director.” She encourages young women to complete their studies but follow their dreams. “It’s important to have a whole life, to live a rich life,” Kim says. “Pursuing what interests you – everything you’re interested in – is important. Try everything. Don’t worry about what’s going to happen after school. It will work itself out. That experience at school is something you can never duplicate.” Good advice from a distinguished alumna, gifted actor and excellent role model.

Music is in the Blood of this Popstar By Christine Spiegel

She was featured on a popular Warner Brothers® (WB) television show every Friday night last winter, her music plays on international radio, and she’s toured with popular singing sensations ’N Sync and Jessica Simpson. Pretty impressive for someone who was virtually unknown nine months ago. Maile Misajon (BD-UCLA) is a member of the smash female pop group Eden’s Crush, made famous by the group’s televised assembly during the weekly Popstars reality series. The series followed the creation of a made-for-television female singing group, starting with the audition process and culminating with Eden’s Crush’s first concert at the Palace Theater in Hollywood. Their debut album, Popstars, reached No. 6 on the Billboard® chart. The group’s first single, “Get Over Yourself,” climbed to the top of the music charts in March, making it the top-selling debut single ever for a new group. Maile, who was born into a family of musicians, says, “I’ve wanted to be a performer my whole life, and I always knew I was destined to sing. My parents put me on the stage when I was 2 or 3. I’ve loved it ever since.” A native of Long Beach, Calif., Maile began singing with her father’s rock ’n’ roll band, Elm Street Band, at 15 while attending a performing arts high school. She continued to join them when possible during college and after graduating, while balancing acting auditions and waitressing. It was through her acting agency that she heard about the Popstar auditions. Maile says she arrived half an hour late and was the last to audition, so she was relieved to receive a call back the next day. She says after being part of her father’s band for so long, Eden’s Crush is a total transformation for her: Eden’s Crush’s first single, “Get “I’m used to singing Over Yourself,” is the top-selling debut single ever for a new with a live band. I group. grew up singing Diana

Ross, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Debbie Gibson. I’ve adjusted to Eden’s Crush, which is essentially a track act – singing, dancing and a button pushed for our background music.” Speaking of adjusting … The five women of Eden’s Crush lived and spent most of their time together since the group formed in October 2000. Their lives were videotaped and turned into a television series that drew a diverse viewing audience and resulted in a large fan base, especially among teenagers. Maile says although some of the other group members had to adjust to being in front of cameras, it didn’t bother her because she appeared as an extra in movies and in commercials such as McDonald’s® and Monistat®. Her first commercial was for Macy’s as a sophomore in college. “I’ve been in front of a camera before. I’m used to them,” she says. “Plus, the cameras were only there when they were supposed to be, not like [MTV’s] Real World, where cameras are more intrusive.”

SINGING FOR SISTERS During college, Maile was active in Alpha Phi and held offices at UCLA (B∆) until senior year. She says she always performed for the chapter and sang Alpha Phi’s version of “Lean on Me” as part of a trio during preference night of recruitment. Michelle Webb (B∆-UCLA), who attended the ceremony as an alumna, remembers, “It was incredible. I get chills just thinking about it. The whole room was filled with energy and awe.” Maile says she chose the song because “it was about friendship” and perfect for the preference ceremony: “Singing like that is second nature to me. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid.”

With her new celebrity comes responsibility. When asked how she feels about being a role model to young women, Maile says she believes that status results when fans witness firsthand the group’s members following their dreams, “I think it’s a huge compliment. A lot of kids come up to us overcome with joy and in tears. But this is our job. We’re playing the role of pop stars. We’re humbled that our fans feel that way.” She admits that as with any job, “There are definitely ups and downs.”

give the job your full attention.” Her busy schedule does allow some time to herself. Shortly before this telephone interview Maile had two free days to celebrate her father’s birthday. The Ups Maile says touring with ’N Sync during the summer was “awesome! They were very sweet, included us in their world and took care of us. We went from just doing radio shows and performing at venues of 5,000 to opening the first night to a crowd of 80,000 for ’N Sync.” When Eden’s Crush is compared to ’N Sync and other boy bands, Maile says, “We’re in the same genre, but different from them. It’s an honor to even be put in the same category because they’ve been at it for so long. We’re starting older; we’re all 22-24, while most pop groups start much younger and take a while to establish themselves.” Those who watched Popstars know the group’s name was chosen by the five women – “Eden’s” represents paradise and “Crush” means sweet but powerful. “It reflects our strong personalities. We’re all very independent women,” Maile says.

The women of Popstars are featured in several international magazines, including this spread in YM magazine.

“Singing . . . is second nature to me.”

The Downs One of the challenges of her position is attempting to balance personal life while on the road. “People in this position don’t lead normal lives,” Maile says. “There’s no time for a personal life. You have to

FALL 2001

What’s next for Maile? “[Eden’s Crush] is a chapter in my life,” says Maile. When this chapter is over, she says she will “continue what I was doing before: acting, television, film. I’d like to try Broadway; I grew up on musical theater. I’d like to write songs.” And the list goes on, “Eventually, I’d like to get married and have kids.” She adds, “I’d love to get back in touch with my friends from the chapter!” Wherever her talent takes her, Maile Misajon says she’ll remember the experiences that shaped her into the performer she is today. We are proud that Alpha Phi has been one of those positive experiences. For more information on Maile Misajon and Eden’s Crush, visit the group’s Web site at www.edenscrush.com.

She was president of the Houston alumnae chapter Buster Homburg and a Convention speaker. The Executive Office foyer is named in her honor because of her strong support of the Alpha Phi Foundation. Her love of writing inspired her to create an Author’s Bookshelf to recognize works published by Omega sisters. Its popularity compelled her to include works by all Alpha Phis, and she proudly announced the latest additions at HCB meetings. A former high school English teacher, she encouraged lifelong learning. Most recently she presented a study skills seminar to Omega to rave reviews. She is credited with rallying her Omega sisters from the 1930s and 1940s to raise more than $7,000, making the collegiate chapter the first sorority on campus to have Ethernet network technology. We regret to report she passed away May 14, 2001. “Buster brought vitality, leadership, vision an dedication,” says Omega HCB Secretary Ingrid Moore Gillespie (Ω-Texas). “She is a role model for all Alpha Phis.”

Alpha Phi is the House for Me Distinguished Alumna Reflects on Fraternity By Catherine Anaya (BΠ-USC)

Becoming an Alpha Phi changed my life and helped shape who I am today. Let me take you back to the mid-1980s, when I first set foot at USC. I didn’t know a soul. My mother gave me a tour of campus, and we drove down “the row” – the name we lovingly call the street lined with fraternity and sorority houses. I was awestruck by the beautiful homes, by the fun students seemed to have as they mingled on corners or in front of houses. I didn’t know a thing about the Greek system, but what I saw intrigued me. I decided to rush … completely unprepared for the experience. The fancy dresses, anxiety of talking to perfect strangers, feeling nervous. But when I walked into Alpha Phi those feelings disappeared. I knew immediately I had found a home. I recently dug up a letter I wrote to myself in 1986, the night I initiated. The letter of each new member was sealed for three years, then opened and read aloud during our last night in the chapter house as seniors: “After the second day meeting the sisters of Alpha Phi, I knew it was for me. Everyone was so friendly and energetic. Most of all, they were genuine. Receiving my bid was one of the happiest days of my life. I love this house and my new member sisters.” I came a long way in four years. When I pledged, I was a shy, insecure freshman. Alpha Phi helped me come out of my shell and gain confidence. I learned how to work with a number of different personalities to accomplish a goal. I participated in everything: every exchange, meeting and sisterhood event. Almost every piece of clothing I wore promoted Alpha Phi. My car was plastered with Alpha Phi stickers. I was proud! During the next three years, that introverted 17-yearold freshman became assistant new member trainer, assistant recruitment chairman, Alpha Phi Quarterly correspondent, Alpha Phi “big sister,” active of the week (two consecutive years) and

Panhellenic recruitment counselor. I lived in the chapter house for a year, in a room with four other sisters. Two were bridesmaids in my wedding. Through Alpha Phi, I learned to love myself for who and what I am on the inside. As a freshman, I was the quietest student in the room. By senior year, I had become a leader. I learned about working as a team, about loyalty and about friendship. My Alpha Phi experience carried me through some difficult times. I doubt I would have had the courage to leave Los Angeles at 22 for my first television job in a small border town in Texas – where I knew no one – without the confidence and determination Alpha Phi helped me develop. Being an Alpha Phi means being a sister for life. Just the other day I ran into a woman who’d been in the new member class I helped train. I hadn’t seen her in 12 years, but we hugged and laughed like it had only been a few months. Alpha Phi is about sharing something special. As I dug through college momentos, I came across a note from my “little sister,” written after her initiation: “Thanks for helping me love Alpha Phi. You were the main reason I pledged. I figured if the rest of the women were at all like you, then this is the house for me.” Alpha Phi was, and will always be, the house for me!

“Becoming an Alpha Phi changed my life and helped shape who I am today.”

Denver Alumna Hosts Prestigious Lecture Series By Ann Freeman Emrich (BΓ-Colorado)

She’s schmoozed with royalty, interrogated journalists and discussed politics with U.S. presidential candidates. Jean Creamer Hodges (Q-Ohio State) is owner of the prestigious Town Hall of Denver Lectures, a lecture series that brings the world’s elite to Denver, Colo., five times a year. Jean has hosted celebrities such as news commentator Edwin Newman, opera star and arts administrator Beverly Sills, two-time Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader and humanitarian Princess Elizabeth of the former Yugoslavia. At least 700 of the 800 Denver area members attend each lecture. The audience includes both women and men, ages 36 to 75, so Jean must find speakJean Creamer Hodges, middle, owns Town Hall of Denver Lectures. She is pictured with assistant Mary Sykes Starr (B-Northwestern), ers who satisfy a broad right, and February 2001 speaker Rikki Klieman, host of Court TV and range of interests. on the law faculty at Columbia University. “They come to learn and want to go home with something,” says Jean, who regularly invites a select group of 10 or 12 members to lunch with the speaker following the lecture to continue discussion. Subjects range from culture to foreign politics to current hot topics. One of Jean’s most popular and requested speakers is Dr. Elliott Engel, a University of North Carolina classics professor, who discusses literary figures such as William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe. Another audience favorite is editor, writer and political thinker William F. Buckley Jr. Before his scheduled appearance, Jean hinted that those planning to attend might want to bring a dictionary to keep up with his advanced vocabulary. Aware of this during his lecture, Buckley asked how many brought one. He was very amused when about 100 attendees held up dictionaries. Jean always meets her speakers’ flights, and the 30-minute drive from Denver’s airport provides an opportunity to get acquainted. She recalls the time PAGE TEN

television news personality John Stossel lay down in the back seat of her car to nurse his strained back. There are occasional headaches and mishaps, but working with the company 20 years before purchasing it in 1991 prepared her, she says. Occasionally a speaker cancels, and Jean must quickly recruit a substitute. Once a woman spoke only 20 minutes and sat down. But Jean managed to lead questioning to fill the 50 minutes the crowd expected. One speaker charged $45 worth of dry-cleaning to the hotel bill, assuming it would be covered. And another refused to be in a hotel room where no windows opened and declined to speak until she was moved. Jean says most speakers are not so demanding, and some have even become friends. Longtime White House journalist Helen Thomas, for example, invited Jean to visit the White House three times. Thomas was scheduled to speak but had to cancel when President Ronald Reagan was shot in 1982; she covered the story for United Press International (UPI). Despite Jean’s high society connections, she still makes time for Alpha Phi and has been active in the Denver alumnae chapter for many years. Playing host to the world’s influential keeps Jean on her toes, but allows her to provide series members a unique learning opportunity. Jean says her “finest speaker” to date is Doris Kearns Goodwin, author, historian, political analyst: “She is the most dynamic, brilliant and extremely knowledgeable speaker one could ever ask for.” Perhaps one day a distinguished Alpha Phi alumna will succeed in that coveted title?

Where will we find the women to follow in the footsteps of leaders like Martha Foote Crow (ASyracuse), Betty Mullins Jones ( -DePauw) and Mary Carr Boyd ( -DePauw and O-Missouri)? Is this your time to serve Alpha Phi? Who will lead? All members in good standing are eligible to serve on Alpha Phi’s International Executive Board (IEB). Do you have the strategic perspective, gift of communication, patience, passion and pragmatism to create policy that keeps faith with our Founders’ vision and keeps current with member needs in today’s world? IEB directors are elected by dues-paying members each biennium to represent our entire sisterhood, keep us true to our ideals, lead our path today and focus our resources for tomorrow. These representatives come from throughout our membership to create a multigenerational leadership team – traditional, transitional, contemporary and futuristic. Together, the IEB is responsible for • Connecting systematically with members to understand their current and future needs and translating those needs into resultsfocused policy. • Creating policies that guide EO staff to satisfy member needs and reflect the principles defined in the Strategic Plan. • Monitoring organizational performance, based on results it defines as necessary to achieve success for all areas of the Fraternity. The IEB guides Alpha Phi’s vision. This process depends on discovering the talents of dynamic sisters capable of steering our Fraternity in the future. We seek those who can embrace and follow the concept of policy governance and are able to: • Speak on behalf of the more than 100,000 members, rather than from her own or a small group perspective. • Think conceptually and with a long-term perspective. • Understand the IEB’s tasks of assuring performance at arms’ length by checking progress against IEB-written policies.

• Welcome a variety of opinions but stand by group decisions. • Position organizational accountability above personal gratification. • Focus on results and not the actions taken to achieve them. • Delegate and monitor efficiently. • Draw from prior board and/or professional experience. • Share a passion for the Fraternity and • Take and record “the pulse” of members to help communicate their vision. In addition to eight IEB directors, a new president also is elected. An effective president is key to creating positive partnerships with our executive director, National Panhellenic Conference and others, and to building effective group decision-making within the IEB team. COL nominates IEB slate The Committee on Leadership (COL) is charged with finding the women to lead us as the governing arm of Alpha Phi. Its 14 members are elected representatives from each region, award-winning collegiate and alumnae chapter representatives, two IEB-appointees and the executive director as ex-officio member. This summer and early fall, the COL solicited IEB candidate referrals from members. Each individual referred was contacted and provided an application packet if she wished to apply. Candidates will be interviewed this fall, and their references and applications reviewed. Each will be evaluated against a set of criteria the COL developed to describe the current state of our Fraternity, the environment and influences affecting our members and chapters and the attributes needed for an effective governing board. Later this year, a slate of IEB candidates will be selected. You have the opportunity to elect the 2002–2004 IEB. When you pay your annual dues, you become eligible to vote. Ballots will be mailed in early 2002 to members in good standing as of Dec. 31, 2001. Please vote and return your ballot before the April 15, 2002 deadline.

Alpha Phi: Put it on Your Résumé By Heather Wallace (BT-Indiana)

Your Alpha Phi affiliation provides you with valuable experience and skills that directly transfer to the workplace. Reveal to employers the benefits from such membership by including it on your résumé. Get the Interviewer’s Attention Maybe the interviewer has Greek roots. Or she could even be an Alpha Phi! Even if there’s no instant connection, listing Alpha Phi and other organization memberships makes you appear more active and organized. Employers assume you are capable of handling a variety of tasks and possess a good work/life balance. When determining how to present Alpha Phi or any organization during the job hunting process, consider the following: Collegians who held active leadership roles: Résumé Especially if your role in the organization is related to your career goals (e.g. treasurer seeking employment in accounting), list responsibilities and accomplishments as you would a job. Use “Experience” rather than “Work Experience” as a heading. You also may indicate organizational memberships under “Activities,” listing offices and accomplishments. Interview How do your Alpha Phi-related responsibilities and accomplishments relate to the workplace? Link your Alpha Phi successes to those you can provide a future employer. Eliminate jargon; say “our international governing organization” rather than “International.” Do not assume any knowledge of the Greek system or of the internal workings of other organizations. Quantify as much as possible. Be aware of significant dollar amounts if you were responsible for a budget. If you supervised other officers, know how many, what they did and the nature of your supervisory role. If you conducted a fundraiser, be prepared to quote how much was raised and how that total compared to previous years.

Not-so-active collegians: Résumé List membership in an “Activities” section. Interview Communicate how your Alpha Phi membership positively shaped you. Explain how, in return, you impacted and contributed to the organization. Did you participate in fundraisers? Did your GPA bring up the house average? Were you a team player in intramural sports? Those returning to the workforce: Résumé If you have been out of the workforce for some time, your organizational activities may be the primary way to showcase your skills. List activities/offices as if they are jobs under “Experience.” Use language related to your intended career when appropriate. Interview How can you apply similar skills learned through your volunteer work to those needed for this job? Speak of your contributions with conviction, knowing that your work is valuable, regardless of monetary compensation. Active members currently in the workforce: Résumé Retitle your “Activities” section if you’ve been out of college for some time. “Community Involvement” or “Professional and Community Involvement” are more appropriate titles. List organizational memberships here, along with offices held or honors received.

TIP List according to the information you want to emphasize. Be consistent by following that format throughout. Example To emphasize office: Treasurer, September 2000June 2001, Beta Tau Chapter of Alpha Phi To emphasize the organization: Alpha Phi, Beta Tau Chapter, September 1996-June 2000

Author’s Note In 10 years helping students with résumés, the only extracurricular activity I thought was best left off was “active involvement in Alcoholics Anonymous.” Although groups like this help shape and better oneself, health and selfimprovement information is confidential.

Interview Show the positive impact your memberships have on your work productivity. Do they increase business contacts? Are you able to connect and settle in more quickly after relocation? The experience gained through organization membership is invaluable. Show how you’ve benefited. Put Alpha Phi on your résumé!

Installation of AΦ’s NPC Chair Coincides with Centennial Celebration Kick-Off Join Alpha Phis in Tucson to Witness Alpha Phi and NPC History Alpha Phis from across North America are invited to a reception honoring incoming National Panhellenic Conference Chairman Sally McCall Grant (Γ-DePauw) following her installation at the Westin La Paloma in Tucson, Ariz. The closing banquet of this Biennial Session marks the beginning of a year-long centennial celebration by all NPC member groups. The occasion holds special meaning for Alpha Phi, since in 1902 Alpha Phi’s National President Margaret Mason Whitney (Θ-Michigan) called the meeting in Chicago that resulted in the formation of NPC. Sally and the rest of the 2001–2003 NPC executive committee will be installed during the Saturday evening awards banquet on Oct. 6, 2001. Alpha Phi will host a private reception following the Panhellenic festivities at 10:30 p.m. in the hotel’s Cottonwood Room. Alpha Phi photographs will be taken prior to the 7:30 p.m. dinner. For more information, contact the Executive Office at 847.316.8921. NPC is an umbrella association for its 26 women’s fraternities. The Conference meets once a year to discuss issues facing collegiate and alumnae Panhellenic women on campus and in the community and to reach consensus on the ways to assist Panhellenics in resolving current issues.

NPC joins NIC in Second D.C. Reception NPC Delegate Sally McCall Grant (-DePauw), International President Jean Cameron Tindall (M-Miami University) and former Board member Diane Spry Straker (A-East Carolina) represented Alpha Phi May 15 in Washington, D.C. at a series of events that culminated in a reception for Greek-affiliated senators, representatives and senior staff members. This event was a second attempt by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), and the first time that NPC, National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) and National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) members joined in the reception in the Cannon Office Building near the Capitol.

She most recently participated in Greek Week activities, includShannon McNamara, third from left, with Eastern ing the air band competition, and really enjoyed Illinois (ZA) sisters. that. Eastern was a very special place to her…” At her parents’ request, Shannon was buried in her Alpha Phi sweatshirt.

EO STAFF PROFILE

O N

Brooke Cesare (EX-Cal Poly) is the newest member of the 2001-2002 educational leadership consultant team (see Summer Quarterly, page 26). Because she joined the staff after the Summer Quarterly went to print, her profile was not included in that issue.

Brooke Cesare (EX-Cal Poly) My goal as an ELC is: to expand my experiences personally and professionally, and show chapters the best way to achieve positive lifelong memories of Alpha Phi. If I wasn’t an ELC, I’d: be pursuing a career in pharmaceutical sales. As an ELC, I’m looking forward to: traveling and meeting Alpha Phis from across North America. Favorite Alpha Phi memory: Greek Week festivities every year. Three words that best describe me are: dedicated, outgoing and enthusiastic.

WASHINGTON Washington State (BPΛ) Beta Rho deuteron said goodbye to 16 graduating seniors in May with a senior dessert. Members shared memories about the seniors, and seniors reflected on their favorite Alpha Phi moment. This sisterhood event is a favorite every year. Four seniors joined the Spokane, Wash., alumnae chapter, traveling to Spokane May 6 for a ceremony and tea. Washington State’s commencement ceremony was held May 12, and sisters received degrees ranging from pre-law to leisure studies. –Jessie Kane

The Quarterly salutes UCLA (B∆) Chapter Adviser Christiane Sentianin (B∆-UCLA)! Look for her profile in the Winter 2002

POWER TRIP: Introducing the Foundation’s Power of One Hundred OH, WHAT 100 WOMEN CAN DO! This year the Alpha Phi Foundation asked nearly 800 past donors to join the Power of 100, a pioneering group of women giving at a high level. Just like the men. We wanted 100 women to give $1,000 … one to give $10,000, three to give $5,000 and five, $2,500. One hundred women (and two men) responded at these levels: one gave $10,000, seven gave $5,000, seven gave $2,500, seven gave $1,872 and 80 gave $1,000 – twice the number and amount of gifts from the year before! Why did these women support the Foundation with these major gifts? Linda Schnetzer (BO-Bowling Green State) says, “Historically men support their fraternities with dollars and women support with time. Frankly, this is because the men had jobs, and the women had time. Now as a working woman, I feel it’s important to show my support to Alpha Phi with my dollars. I hope more and more women will agree.” Thank you, Power of 100 members… HAND-TO-HAND CIRCLE ($10,000+)

How to Honor the Class of 2002 Parents of 2002 graduates receive a letter from the Foundation in the spring. They return a completed reply form to the Foundation. In return, the Foundation staff sends a card to each honoree at graduation time, lists their names in the fall issue of the Quarterly and guarantees your contribution will be used wisely and faithfully. Others wishing to honor a 2002 graduate can send a note with the graduate’s name and chapter to the Foundation (1930 Sherman Ave., Evanston, IL 60201) or use the giving form on the Alpha Phi Web site: www.alphaphi.org. Click on “Foundation Information” and then “Voluntary Contributions.” Checks (minimum of $50) should be made payable to the Alpha Phi Foundation. Credit cards also are accepted. All contributions are tax-deductible in the United States as allowed by law.

Northern Iowa (EΘ) members sing their hearts out during the first annual Say What Karaoke contest. The event raised about $700 for the Foundation. The chapter also made a gift to the Foundation honoring their senior members at graduation.

How does it work? The Foundation receives donor gifts – some designated for specific scholarship funds, some unrestricted – and awards grants earmarked for both undergraduate and graduate study. All Alpha Phi Foundation scholarships are based on merit, not need. Who decides? The Foundation scholarship committee reads the hundreds of applications received and evaluates them primarily on scholastic achievement, plus campus involvement, community/Alpha Phi service and essay answers. One alumna recommendation is required. The Foundation Board of Directors approves the final recipients.

Mail your application to the Foundation office by March 15, 2002; late applications are not accepted. What are ways to make my application stand out? Check your application for spelling and grammatical errors. The committee reads hundreds of applications – make it easy for them. (They like a little humor, too.) Excel scholastically. Your good grades show you are dedicated in the classroom. Tell the committee about your campus and Alpha Phi activities. Extracurricular activities and involvement in Alpha Phi are important. Explain how you are involved in community activities and/or service. Maybe you helped with a Foundation fundraiser. Maybe you volunteer in your community. Take pride in your service. Good Luck!

How can I apply for a scholarship? The Foundation sends applications to all collegiate chapters in early fall. Ask your director of scholarship for a copy, or call the Foundation at 847.475.4532 to request one. You also can download and print a copy from our Web site at www.alphaphi.org/scholarships.html. Click on Dear Alpha Phi Foundation, “Foundation Information” and then The Foundation scholarship I rece “Scholarships.” ived combines two aspects of m y life: my school ed Be sure to complete ucation and my education in Alpha Phi.
