PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Thoughts from Michele

S

pending four days in The Windy City meeting hundreds of Alpha Xi Deltas at our National Convention and celebrating this past biennium’s accomplishments was the perfect way to end my term as your National President. The past two years have seen the Fraternity grow, change and sparkle in so many ways. We created new programs to further engage our Sisters, kicked off of a national sponsorship for Autism Speaks Walk events, welcomed Sisters home to new and updated chapter facilities and brought more than 4,500 Sisters into our fold through recruitment. National Convention is a wonderful time for us to celebrate and reflect on our past accomplishments, then set our sights high for the next biennium. I encourage you to read the National Convention recap that starts on page 14. You can also turn to social media and search #AXiDChicago to check out posts and updates from attendees.

/ Summer/Fall 2017

With our 125th anniversary coming up quickly in April 2018, I know this biennium will be one for the history books. The woman who is leading this charge, alongside the 2017-2019 National Vice Presidents, is our new National President, Micaela Isler. She is an initiate of Beta Alpha Chapter at the University of Texas – Austin. Micaela resides in Washington, D.C. with her husband and daughter and is currently the Assistant Vice President for Property Casualty Insurers Association of America. She has been a long-time Alpha Xi Delta volunteer, with her most recent role as a National Vice President. I’m excited to see Micaela step into the role of National President, and I know her leadership skills and passion to continue making Alpha Xi Delta a best in class organization will make a significant impact on our beloved Fraternity. You can learn more about Micaela and the National Vice Presidents on pages 26-27.

Some of my most cherished memories during my time as National President have been celebrating our Sisterhood with you at installations and anniversary celebrations. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the other 25 Inter/National Presidents to help define the future of the sorority experience. Most of all, I have been honored to proudly say I served as your National President. Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to celebrating 125 years of Alpha Xi Delta with you soon. Oh, and save the date for Convention 2019! We’ll be celebrating in Seattle July 3-6, 2019 at The Westin Seattle.

Loyally,

Michele Herbst Evink National President

/ Summer/Fall 2017

It has seriously disturbed me for my whole adult life that women have been labeled in social publications as Mrs. “Insert Husband’s Full Name Here”. I could never understand it. I may have taken my husband’s last name, but never his first. Some women choose not to take their partner’s last name, but we all have our own given first names. This practice finally began to break down (by female demand) in the 70’s, as women fought to get credit cards, housing leases and automobile titles in their own names. When I received my first Quill in the late 60’s, the first thing I did was advise the Fraternity that I wanted my records in my own name, and certainly after a divorce I even changed my last name back. It truly surprised me to see the picture of four Past National Presidents in the Spring 2017 Quill, three of them identified by their husband’s names only, when contemporary members, myself included, knew them by their own first names. The exception was Dr. Van Buskirk, whose advanced degree may have finally earned her the right to be called by her real name. Hard to believe that a women’s organization publication honoring their own members would identify them by their husband’s names, whether historically in archives or especially now. I understand you were probably publishing something directly from your archives, but full names should have been added. Who their husbands were has no bearing on their Fraternity achievements. Sorry, if this seems like a rant, but I lived and fought those personal identity battles along with many other women. It made me very angry then and now and I never want us to go back for the sake of our daughters’ identities. -- Marilyn Jungst Forsstrom, Illinois Urbana-Champaign ’68

WHAT’S TRENDING NOW

what’s trending now Revitalized Member Development Program Alpha Xi Delta is excited to implement Inspire, a revamped member development program, this fall with our collegiate members. Through observations, utilization of a focus group, and data collected from an undergraduate member education survey, Inspire was created in order to meet new needs and provide best-inclass programming. In recognizing the Fraternity’s vision of inspiring women to realize their potential and the mission of enriching the life of every Alpha Xi Delta, we are confident this program will be a key element in the personal development of our members, chapters and the growth of the Fraternity as a whole. The purpose of Inspire is to retain the focus on helping members grow and learn as individuals. Focusing on the intellectual, professional and personal growth of the individual not only supports member success after college, but also contributes to the overall health and growth of chapters.

New Chapter Officer Structure At this summer’s National Convention, Alpha Xi Delta unveiled the new collegiate officer structure that will go into effect for the 2018 officer year. The current structure is still in place until next election/officer transitions. For more information about this change, please contact memberservices@alphaxidelta.org.

Lost Sister Search One in two Alpha Xi Deltas is missing a piece of contact information that is critical to staying connected to the Fraternity. Alpha Xi Delta celebrates 125 years of Sisterhood in 2018, and we want to share that milestone with as many Sisters as possible! The Lost Sister Search is now available at alphaxidelta.org and on the dashboard feature in Exclusively Xi. You can search for Sisters by name, chapter, initiation year or university. You can submit missing information for a Sister, or invite her to update her own member record.

Letters of Love Alpha Xi Delta will host our second annual Letters of Love campaign this November. We encourage all Sisters to share their stories through this fundraising initiative for Autism Speaks. We all have stories to share about how autism has touched our lives. You may be a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt or friend to someone affected by autism. You may be an educator or a researcher. Or, just simply a Sister who has a heart for service and philanthropy. Regardless of your place in the story, your commitment to do more, raise more and be more for Autism Speaks is important. Visit www.alphaxidelta.org for more information about Letters of Love. You can download a sample letter to share with your circle of influence in Exclusively Xi’s Resource Center.

Q/A

A I realized my potential when I completed Basic Combat Training & Advanced Individual Training for the U.S. Army. #BestOfBothWorlds

I think for me I started to realize my potential when I was asked to attend The Founders’ Academy last summer. At that moment, I realized that my Sisters must believe in me to be a leader so then it was time to believe in myself.

I don’t think there is ever a point where you fully realize your potential. Alpha Xi Delta has shown me that as I grow older, gain more life experiences and face more challenges, my potential continues to grow. Alpha Xi Delta continuously teaches me how to conquer my challenges and face my fears. The business aspect of the Sisterhood, and the wonderful women who I am lucky enough to call my Sisters, have both taught me valuable skills that I will use for the rest of my life. So, I guess if I had to chose one moment when I began to realize my potential, it would be when I first met my Theta Alpha Sisters and my life changed forever.

NHC NEWS

Welcome Home WESTERN KENTUCKY

Sisters of the Epsilon Kappa Chapter at Western Kentucky were welcomed back to campus this fall with a new chapter facility. The National Housing Corporation (NHC), housing staff and CSL Management worked together to acquire a property through a long-term lease located at 1508 Chestnut Street in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This project was a complete re-build and re-model that began in the spring of 2017. Eighteen Sisters

will be able to live in the facility, and it will also serve as a place to gather for executive board meetings, special events and recruitment. The Epsilon Kappa Chapter was originally installed on April 1, 1967, and the chapter remained on Western Kentucky’s campus until 1993. The chapter was reinstalled on January 29, 2012 and has continued to flourish since that time. For more information about the NHC, please contact Jennifer Foster, Director of Housing, at jfoster@alphaxidelta.org.

“One of my best memories while in college was living in the Epsilon Kappa Chapter house. It provided a place for Sisters to gather, to grow closer as friends and Sisters, and to build a community. When the chapter was recolonized, it was our hope that a chapter house could soon be secured so that this new generation of Epsilon Kappa Chapter Sisters could also realize their potential with the assistance of the community building properties of a chapter house. Now, thanks to the efforts of the Alpha Xi Delta National Housing Corporation, Epsilon Kappa Chapter Sisters will be moving into a brand new house on Chestnut Street. The new chapter house is located amid other fraternity and sorority chapter houses for Western Kentucky University Greek chapters. This wonderful new facility will provide a gathering place for Sisters, for alumnae returning to campus, for prospective new members to meet the chapter members, and an established location for the chapter to call home.” – Paige Faries, Western Kentucky ’71

REBRANDING Photo Credit: Texas Tech Athletics

REENERGIZING OUR BRAND

Sisters in attendance at Convention 2017 received the first look at Alpha Xi Delta’s new brand, a project that was in the works for more than a year. With the last Fraternity rebrand taking place in 2007, Alpha Xi Delta decided the time was right to reenergize our current look, while keeping true to our mission, vision and unique insignia our Quill badge. The former brand served us well for many years, but our organization and the world around us has grown significantly since that time. The Fraternity didn’t even have a Facebook page in 2007!

TEN: THE EMPOWERMENT NETWORK

The Empowerment Network In 2015, Alpha Xi Delta launched an alumnae survey to gain insight into the desires and needs of her members and to assist with the creation and implementation of experiences and programs that enhance lifetime membership. Survey results overwhelmingly indicated two needs: 1) the desire for volunteer opportunities that lend to time flexibility and 2) the desire to connect with other Sisters through the benefits of mentoring. Since then, Fraternity volunteers and staff have analyzed those results, comments and researched additional benefits. All of this has lead to the introduction of an amazing new experience for all members. Alpha Xi Delta is excited to launch The Empowerment Network (TEN), Alpha Xi Delta’s mentoring program exclusively for collegians and dues-paying* alumnae. TEN will give our current collegiate members an opportunity to connect with Alpha Xi Delta alumnae as well as increase alumna to alumna connections. Whether you’re an alumna looking to share your experiences and advice with current collegians or a collegian trying to navigate life after college and beyond, TEN is for you. The name TEN was chosen as a nod to the women who started it all – our ten Founders. Alpha Xi Delta’s Founders taught us the value of education as it frees us to achieve our goals and gives us the power to be whoever we choose. They taught us to support one another through shared experiences and understanding, and because of them, Alpha Xi Delta continues to inspire countless bold and talented women to realize their potential every day. Mentoring allows Sisters to give back and get more from Alpha Xi Delta. Seventy-five percent of millennials want a mentor, and fifty-eight percent of them turn to baby boomers first for advice, according to HireVue.com. TEN provides a unique and exclusive opportunity for Sisters to connect, engage, mentor or be mentored and impact generations of Alpha Xi Delta women. Who can create an account in The Empowerment Network? Current collegians and dues paying* alumnae Sisters can create an account in TEN. If you sign up and it says you already have an account, it’s because Alpha Xi Delta has imported your email from our database and you’ll simply need to click “reset password”. This is a security feature to keep others from claiming your account, keeping the platform exclusive to Alpha Xi Delta Sisters. Can alumnae serve as mentees and mentors? Absolutely! The platform’s flexibility allows alumnae to serve as both mentees and mentors. Cultivating a professional community of support is one of the most powerful pathways

12 the

/ Summer/Fall 2017

to career success. Supporting a mentee while building your own advisory board of mentors is a wonderful way to get there. How does it work for mentors? As a mentor, you’ll serve as a resource to another Sister for career support and guidance, professional knowledge and networking. As a mentee, you’ll benefit from the knowledge and support shared by a Sister who can inspire you while you begin your next chapter in life. You can communicate and build your relationship in ways that are most convenient to you — email, video conferencing and more. How do I get started? First, complete your profile. You can use LinkedIn to automatically fill in some of your information. Set your availability preferences to indicate how much time you can commit and how many mentees you can support at one time. Potential mentees will be able to view your profile and reach out to request mentorship or ask a question. Sometimes it takes a while for a mentee to discover you due to the size of the program, so please be patient! If you get a request we hope you’ll accept it, but you do have the option to decline a mentee if you simply don’t have time or think it’s the wrong fit. What is expected of mentors? Share your experiences and career journey with your mentees. Help your mentees define their own goals and support them as they work toward those goals. Be a resource to your mentees as they develop their career interests and face new challenges. Stay committed to the mentoring connection and make an effort to communicate regularly with your mentees (we tell them the same thing!). Like any opportunity with Alpha Xi Delta, you will receive tenfold what you put into it. We are excited to offer this opportunity to our Sisters and hope you inspire each other to realize your potential. To sign up, visit mentoring.alphaxidelta.org If you have any questions, please email mentor@alphaxidelta.org *Dues paying alumnae are Alpha Xi Delta alumnae Sisters who have paid their $25 National Alumnae Dues through an alumnae association or directly to the Fraternity through Be The Heart. Alumnae profiles will be approved once dues paying status is confirmed (allow 5 business days).


The Quill is Now Digitally Archived

The first issue of The Quill, at the time called The Alpha Xi Delta, was published in 1904. Unless

Sisters were visiting Fraternity Headquarters or their chapter happened to have this issue, chances are a majority of our Sisters have never seen this historical publication.

We’re excited to share some exciting news! Every issue of The Quill has been carefully scanned and

digitally archived to preserve a critical piece of our history. Sisters can now search past issues by keywords (go ahead, search your name!) and download complete copies of The Quill. Visit www.alphaxidelta.org, click on the “About” menu and select “The Quill” to learn more and start searching!

Here are a few issues we thought our Sisters would enjoy reading:

Volume 1, Issue 1: A photo from the first National Convention in 1903, held in Lombard, Illinois.

Woman of Distinction Award Recipients Alpha Xi Delta is proud to announce Bette Sachs Horstman, Dr. Robin Lock and April Carter are recipients of Alpha Xi Delta’s Woman of Distinction Award.

After completing her education, she served as Chapter Advisor for the Beta Alpha Chapter from 1987-1996. Robin played an instrumental role in the development of the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research in Lubbock, Texas, on the campus of Texas Tech University. She served as the institution’s director between 2001 to 2009. While still serving in her role as Professor of Special Education, Dr. Lock has also taken on additional administrative duties. First as the Associate Dean of Graduate Education and Research in the College of Education at Texas Tech and now serving as the College’s Vice Dean. She is a leader in her field and has dedicated her career to improving the quality of life for individuals and families affected by autism spectrum disorders. As a distinguished member of her community, Robin has authored and co-authored numerous articles in scholarly journals addressing the needs and educational endeavors of those impacted by autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities.

Through April’s work and experiences in Dallas, she felt compelled to make a difference in the international community and relocated to the Netherlands to work at The Hague. She has been practicing law there for the past eleven years. April explains, “Over the subsequent years, I have had the opportunity to serve my local and international community. In Texas, I served hundreds of children who were subject to abuse and neglect at the hand of their parents. That compassion and training set the stage for my service to the people of the former Yugoslavia.” April has served as a trial attorney with the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

NATIONAL COUNCIL

Introducing The 2017National President

MICAELA ISLER Texas ’91 How do you plan to leave your mark on Alpha Xi Delta’s history? It is my goal to lead our organization with integrity, respect and undivided attention to details. I will work hard to set high standards but also to follow through and serve as a problem solver. Ultimately, it is my hope to inspire our Sisters to dream bigger and do more than they thought was ever possible to ensure our legacy continues for the next 125 years and beyond.

National Vice Presidents

LEANN DIANDRETH-ELKINS Indiana University of Pennsylvania ’86 What’s been the most important part of Alpha Xi Delta membership for you? Because of Alpha Xi Delta connections, I am thankful for several opportunities that helped me to realize my potential. During my last semester in college, my Greek Advisor offered me a graduate assistant position, and I completed a master’s degree in Student Affairs. After working on several college campuses, I found myself in Texas where I pursued my doctorate degree, and my dissertation chair is an Alpha Xi Delta. A few years ago, I accepted a university faculty position, and my Dean is an Alpha Xi Delta.

GRETCHEN BALLING DIMARCO Syracuse ’96 In what ways has Alpha Xi Delta changed your life? The support and encouragement I get from my Sisters has given me the courage and confidence to use my strengths in pursuit of my personal and professional goals. At Eta Chapter’s 110th anniversary, past Chapter President Lydia Merola Schmidt, Syracuse ’59, said it best when she spoke to the collegiate members in her keynote address: “You have a great future in front of you, because you have Alpha Xi Delta behind you.”

ANDREA FOUBERG South Dakota State ’95 How have you been inspired by Alpha Xi Delta? I am inspired by our Sisters and lifted by our Sisterhood almost daily. I am inspired by our collegiate women and college chapters who make a difference in the lives of one another, their campuses and their communities. I am inspired by our alumnae who stay connected whether it be by spending time together in associations, volunteering their time and talent, giving to the Foundation or dedicating their career to the Fraternity. We have much to be inspired by!

-2019 National Council National Vice Presidents Continued LINDA BIERSACH MATKOWSKI Illinois ’83

What are you most looking forward to by serving on National Council? For me, being an Alpha Xi Delta has provided a life-long opportunity to be helped and, in turn, to help others. As a collegiate, I was helped by so many marvelous Sisters. As an alumna, I have met so many outstanding Sisters who have great personal and professional achievements. As the mother of a current collegiate Sister, I watch the women in my daughter’s chapter and feel grateful they are Alpha Xi Sisters. Their strength, passion for learning and volunteering, and their willingness to work together to create something greater is inspiring. Being on National Council is yet another way I can contribute to continuing the mission and vision that was started by our Founders. As I have been helped, I look forward to helping others in return.

REBECCA RICHTER PERRETT Nebraska-Lincoln ’96 What motivates and inspires you to give back to Alpha Xi Delta? While traveling as an Educational Leadership Consultant, I became more independent, self-aware, savvier and capable because of the experience. Many of the answers provided during job interviews related back to the skills I’d learned and talents I’d honed in sorority life. “If” I would stay involved was never a thought “what can I do” to stay involved was the question. My motivation comes from wanting all Sisters to be able to say the same and to truly realize their potential.

ALICIA WOO SADLER Georgia State ’93 Why has Alpha Xi Delta had such a huge impact on your life? Alpha Xi Delta has inspired me to realize my potential in several ways and taught me to believe in myself. As a collegiate, my Sisters believed in me to serve as Chapter President. I went to the President’s Round Table where I met Past National President Linda Dinus who became a mentor and influenced my life after college as a volunteer. As a volunteer, I helped others realize their potential by serving as a mentor. Professionally, I used my leadership skills I learned from Alpha Xi Delta to get me to where I am today.

National Panhellenic Delegate

DEANNA WOLLAM DETCHEMENDY Cal State Northridge ’83 What is one of your proudest Alpha Xi Delta accomplishments? I am proud of Alpha Xi Delta’s extension achievements in recent years, as we’ve revamped and fine-tuned our process in a way that better ensures the initial and long-term success of our newest chapters. It has been a joy to see so many bold and talented young women answer the call of opportunity presented by founding chapter membership in Alpha Xi Delta, and a particularly joy to re-establish some of our oldest chapters (Illinois, Cornell, Wisconsin, Wittenberg, Michigan State and -- hopefully soon -- UCLA!).

125th Anniversary

Campaign 32 the

/ Summer/Fall 2017


As Alpha Xi Delta approaches its 125th anniversary, one important goal of the Fraternity is to create opportunities and programs that serve to enhance the Alpha Xi Delta experience and engage members for a lifetime. Alpha Xi Delta will continue to put her members first and be at the forefront of leadership and learning, but our recent dramatic growth in membership has created a unique challenge. We cannot adequately provide quality programs that will meet the needs of a growing Sisterhood without additional financial resources. More funding is necessary to provide leadership development for our collegiate members to ensure the growth and strength of our chapters as well as providing a strong foundation for our women as they enter the workforce and our communities, and as they grow their own families. What will YOUR Foundation do to ensure a “best in class” leadership experience for our Sisters in the next 125 years? During the Rose Banquet at Alpha Xi Delta’s 52nd National Convention, the Foundation announced the 125th Anniversary Campaign to help fund the development of strong Alpha Xi Delta leaders for years to come. This historic, three-year campaign has an aggressive goal of $1.25 million. The campaign will mark the Fraternity’s anniversary of April 17, 2018 and wrap up in 2019 when we meet again at National Convention. Already, our Sisters’ willingness to dream big and give generously has been overwhelming. We are well on our way to the $1.25 million goal with $773,000 in gifts and pledges! A key focus of the campaign will be to establish a fund that will allow the Fraternity

“Will you join us, too? Together, we must seize this opportunity to provide a strong foundation for our membership and invest in our Fraternity’s next 125 years! We invite the support of the entire Alpha Xi Delta Sisterhood in this historic undertaking.” – Michelle Hartnett, Foundation Chair to support The Founders’ Academy. Your gifts will help ensure that Alpha Xi Delta can continue to provide high quality leadership training and personal development for generations of Sisters to come. You are the legacy of our Founders who stood up for something they believed in, something they believed would change the world for new generations of women to come. In the words of Founder Frances Cheney… “Then for Alpha Xi Delta we proudly shall stand, in deathless devotion, a brave, loyal band.” The Foundation is proud to announce that this campaign is kicking off with the full support and 100% participation of National Council, the National Housing Corporation Board, Foundation Board of Trustees and Alpha Xi Delta staff.
