An attitude of pride by Nancy I.Z. Reese National Editor "Catch the Alpha Spirit-An attitude of excellence" is not just a fancy slogan. It describes the feeling-or spirit-of commitment its members have towards Alpha Sigma Alpha. It would be hard to be committed if there wasn't also a feeling -or attitude-of pride in accomplishments of the sorority and its members. Here are a few of those accomplishments of which we can take pride:

A 75-year member writes Anna Lemen Valentine, of Kirksville, MO, wrote on the occasion of her 75th anniversary of Al:A membership. A charter member of Alpha Beta, she speaks with pride of the current chapter members "They are fine women and stand high in respect and scholarship. Each year they serenade me, and I get to see them." Anna, 94 years young, closed her letter with " There's to Al:A, long may sh~ exist."

Outstanding Greek A Washington, MO, newspaper reports that Laura Kemper of Alpha Beta Chapter at Northeast Missouri State University Kirksville, was named NMSU O~tstand足 ing Greek Woman for the 1988-89 school year. Laura has been scholarship director and vice president of her chapter and is a member of Cardinal Key, Order of Omega Psi Chi (psychology) and student ~m足 bassador program. She graduates in May 1990. The newspaper article was sent by Christa Martell, a Beta Upsilon at Indiana State Unive.rsity, who attended Washington High School with Laura. "I didn't know Laura was an Al:A until I saw this," she wrote. ''I'm proud of her."

Honorarium donated The executive director of the Western Regional Greek Confere~ce wrote to announce that Judi Biggs, Greek advisor at Arizona 2 WINTER 1990

Trash bash: Rosie Fellin, national headquarters executive, along with members of Beta Sigma Chapter and Springfield, MO, Alumnae Chapter, survey the results of their recent trash bash with pride. The collegiate chapter and national headquarters have taken on the responsibility for litter control on a Y2 -mile stretch in either direction of National Avenue in Springfield, MO. State University, had donated her $200 honorarium as keynote speaker at the conference to the Emma Frost Leadership Development Institute. Judi was the luncheon speaker and conducted two workshops at the conference, held last spring. An Epsilon Epsilon at Emporia State University, Judi was an Alpha Sigma Alpha chapter consultant during 1981-82.

Anniversary at headquarters Alpha Sigma Alpha National Headquarters reports that this year, Headquarters Executive Rose Marie Fellin marks 25 years of continuous national service to the sorority. In 1964, Rosie was elected national treasurer , and in 1967, she became headquarters executive. A Beta Sigma at Southwest Missouri State University, Rosie served as Beta Sigma advisor and on its house corporation board. She is an active member of the Springfield, MO , Alumnae Chapter and the vice president of Boatman's Union National Bank. This year also marks 25 years that National Headquarters has been located in

Springfield . Known then as the Central Office, it was located in rented office space until the present building was purchased in 1966.

More on ALA editors Although every effort was made to make the reports on the editors accurate and complete, some information did not become available until after publication of the Fall 1989 75th anniversary issue. According to information printed in the journal of the American Association of Certified Orthoptists, Julia E. Lancaster died in August ~971, not September, as reported m The Phoenix. In 1953, the organization presented her the first Lancaster award, which was named for her father, a prominent ophthalmologist. According to an obituary printed in the Boston Herald, Gertrude D. Halbritter died in June 1961. A graduate of Harvard Graduate School, she taught at Hyde Park High School in Boston for 33 years and was executive director of the Cape Cod Campfire Girls at the time of her death. -t< -t<

An attitude of service by Marilyn Garbee Every AEA has the opportunity to recommend to the nominating committee the names of women qualified to serve as National Council and/or to serve in other national positions. The nominating committee, composed of Chairman Marilyn Garbee, Kathy Pilecki and Malinda Owens, encourages the collegiate chapters, the alumnae chapters and individual members to participate in this process by submitting nominees and providing a brief, factual account of their sorority and community activities as well as special talents for leadership. The election of the National Council will be held at the 1990 National Convention in accordance with the bylaws of Alpha Sigma Alpha. The seven positions to be filled are listed on the nominations form .

To be eligible for nomination to National Council, an AEA member must have developed a broad background of sorority experience and served as a national officer. In addition, she should have the time, the ability and interest to serve in a national leadership role. Recommendations for appointments to other national offices should be AEA women willing to accept responsibility for the time requirement to prepare reports and correspondence, be able to manage family and career obligations so that she can attend conventions/ other meetings held in conjunction with Alpha Sigma Alpha's affairs and assume occasional special assignments that may require travel away from home. Names for appointed positions and volunteer names will be forwarded to the newly elected Council by the nominating committee.

You can volunteer too Do you enjoy working with col-

lege age women? Would you enjoy being involved with young AI:As at an important developmental stage of their lives? Does being a friendly resource to help prevent chapter problems from occurring due to your influence and sharing of previous AEA experiences appeal to you? If you answered positively to any of the above, you'd probably just need some training to become one of the best chapter advisors or province directors that an AEA chapter has ever had. Or perhaps you'd prefer to offer your expertise in a specific area by volunteering for a national chairman position. AEA needs volunteers! Many roles are available to women interested in national work, and the sorority always needs women to serve on chapter advisory boards .

An attitude of growth by Rosemary Goss Vice President of Development

Alumnae are a crucial component in the expansion process, and Alpha Sigma Alpha needs your help. There are many ways to be of assistance, but the following are two of the most important. When Alpha Sigma Alpha is invited to give a presentation to a college Panhellenic or to a local sorority on a campus, it is important to have alumnae who are willing to participate. Involvement might include attending the presentation , transporting a national officer to the campus, sharing knowledge about topics such as housing or general campus conditions or assisting with a reception. If a colony is formed on the campus, a major immediate need is alumnae to work with the colony. These individuals might serve as advisors or work with the chapter on a short-term basis to help them prepare for the colonization weekend. Even if there are no colleges nearby, you can be of assistance. Because so many national officers work outside the home and can only take limited amounts of vacation, it is sometimes difficult to find enough women to assist with colonizations. We would like to

Members of Chi Chi Chapter were assisted by extension volunteers.

develop a cadre of national officers and other alumnae who are willing to give four to seven days every year or two to the sorority. An earlier request to national officers and alumnae chapter members yielded some interested women, several of whom will be assisting us with colonizations this fall. However, we need to increase the number of names we have to draw upon. When you participate in a colonization, Alpha Sigma Alpha pays for all of your expenses. What would you do if you participated in a colonization? It de-

pends on the needs and your talents. You might stuff envelopes, clean a fraternity house for the party, make nametags, prepare refreshments , play the piano and be charming to the rushees at a party-all in the same day! Participation in a colonization is an extremely rewarding and exciting experience. Consider making a commitment to give a few days of your time to make Alpha Sigma Alpha grow. Complete the form below and show that you too have "Caught the Alpha SpiritAn attitude of excellence." -c. -c.

by Cretia Rowlette

What better place to relax and enjoy the company of fellow Alpha Sigs than a valley in the sun? There is such a place, and in fact , it is called the Valley of the Sun. The valley is comprised of 18 communities including Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler and Glendale and is home to 1. 9 million people. The area is located in the midst of the Sonora Desert, with Phoenix being the hub of the valley. Symbolic to Alpha Sigma Alphas is the phoenix bird and its legendary meaning. Likewise, one of the early settlers named the city of Phoenix , as a prediction that a m e tropolis would arise from ancient ruins of Hohokan Indians, which were the earliest inhabitants known to Phoenix. The once-stated prediction is now a well-known fact: Phoenix is indeed a metropolis and is proud of its reputation as "the resort capital of the world. " The valley is showered with sunshine over 300 days a year, has an average temperature of 72 degrees and just over 7 inches of rain a year , which makes for a very pleasant climate, one that encourages an active lifestyle. The average maximum and minimum temperature 12


for June-convention time- is 101 and 68 degrees, respectively.

Scottsdale A city rich in Mexican and Indian heritage, Scottsdale's diversity is apparent in its architecture, music, cuisine, art , entertainment and industry. Thus, amid the culture of the rugged 'old west,' a sophisticated 'new west' is thriving; Scottsdale is often referred to as "The West's Most Western Town." Whether your interest is shopping, sports, trail rides, trolley rides or concerts, Scottsdale can satisfy it. The town features over 14 golf courses, over 600 restaurants and over 2,500 boutiques and specialty stores. Over 120 fine art galleries have made Scottsdale

known as one of the Southwest's artistic focal points. Those interested in tours can choose among sightseeing tours , special interest tours, nightlife tours, air tours (balloon style-perfect for a breathtaking desert view) and trolley rides.

Day trips For those taking a few extra vacation days before or after the convention, there are several attractions surrounding Phoenix that are suitable for day trips . The Phoenix and Valley of the Sun Convention and Visitors Bureau is available to assist with lodging and transportation arrangements before arriving in Phoenix. A few suggestions by the bureau include: Grand Canyon: The north rim is THE PHOENIX OF ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA

Valley of the Sun alumnae entertained National Council during the council's winter meeting in Scottsdale, AZ. They are, from left, Mary Moseke, XX, Eleanor Zimbaro, XX, Loretta Pacheco, BX, Marty Byron, HH, Nicky Morrison, Till, Margaret Neff, HH, and Diane James, national president.

â&#x20AC;˘ open from mid-May through October; the south rim is open all year. The Grand Canyon is a five-hour drive from Phoenix. Sedona/Oak Creek Canyon: A two-hour drive from Phoenix, this community is known for its boutiques and art galleries that offer authentic Indian and Southwestern art and crafts. Prescott: A two-hour drive from Phoenix, the community displays its history with the Sharlot Hall Museum complex. Prescott was the first permanent capital of the Arizona territory. Montezuma Castle/Verde Valley: Popular for its many Indian ruins, this area is an hour and a half drive from Phoenix.


Flagstaff: A few hours north of Phoenix, Flagstaff offers skiing at Fairfield Continental's Snowbowl and an extensive Native American art exhibit at the Museum of Northern Arizona. Tucson: A two-hour drive south of Phoenix is Tucson, also known as "Old Pueblo ." Options include visiting the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Saguaro National Monument and the San Savier del bac Mission, a 300-year-old church .

Registry Resort Located in Scottsdale between the Arizona desert and mountains, the Registry Resort is surrounded by natural landscape. A 76-acre estate, the Registry offers 21 tennis courts, two 18-hold championship golf courses, a well-equipped health center , a whirlpool spa, several swimming pools, horseback riding and other attractions. The Registry prides itself on its award-winning convention services staff , which is sure to ensure that we will have a successful convention.

Hostess Chapter The hostess chapter of the 1990 National Convention will be the Valley of the Sun Alumnae Chapter, supported by a dozen active

members who hold four meetings a year. These include salad suppers, art walks (Thursday nights in Scottsdale), rummage sales, Founders' Day luncheons, Christmas exchanges and special interest program meetings. The members got a taste of "convention action" when they entertained the National Council during a meeting in January at the Registry Resort, where the convention will be held. Taking the opportunity to get acquainted with council members, the Valley members made desserts to share with the council. The group maintains its responsibilities with the Phoenix Panhellenic Association. The Phoenix Open Golf Tournament is held each January, and the Valley alumnae usually work the concession stand. Support is also given to the sorority's national philanthropic, Special Olympics. The alumnae volunteer as buggers, invitation makers, help with fund-raising activities and help make rewards. Margaret Neff, president of the Valley of the Sun Alumnae Chapter , said the group is eager to participate in convention preparations and to welcome several hundred Al:A members to the Valley of the Sun. -tt -tt




An attitude of giving by Bonnie Koenemann Foundation Chairman

When you pledged Alpha Sigma Alpha, you had a choice. You chose Alpha Sigma Alpha because of the women who were to become your close friends during your college years. These were the friends with whom you would live, study, laugh and cry so it was important to choose a group with whom you could share your college experiences. You were probably more concerned about the members than you were about the size of the sorority house, and you probably did not know if they had any moo-

we would like to see given to the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation. Alpha Sigma Alpha helped you prepare for your career. Now it is your turn to help Alpha Sigma Alpha. As you look through the pages of this issue, you will see the names of hundreds of Alpha Sigs who have given this year. It will take a lot more if we are to reach our goal of "90,000 by 1990." Alpha Sigma Alpha is forever. It is not , "I was an Alpha Sigma Alpha in college," but instead, "I am an Alpha Sigma Alpha." Help us by contributing to the Alpha Sigma Alpha Foundation so that the generations to come can share the experiences of being an Alpha Sigma Alpha. f:I f:I

ey in the chapter or in their national organization. You were choosing your new friends. Through your association with the chapter, you were encouraged to become a leader, to do your best to attain high scholarship, to develop physically and to enjoy social activities as well. Remember the enthusiasm you had in planning for homecoming? Remember how hard you and your chapter worked on a service project on campus? Remember how hard you worked to bring those grades up for the scholarship cup"? Remember how hard you worked to rush and make quota? How could you forget? It is this same enthusiasm that
