Past Alpha Xi Delta roles: Delta Rho Chapter Advisory Board Member (1990-1992); Gamma Alpha Chapter Advisory Board Member (1992-1993); Steinbeck Alumnae Association President (1995-1997, 2002-2004, 2012-2013); Regional Membership Advisor (1993-1997); Regional Collegiate Director (1997-2001); Foundation Trustee (20032011); Foundation Chair (2009-2011) and NPC Delegation (2011-Present) “At the Alpha Delta Chapter at Oregon State University, we were fortunate to have women from many different chapters serve as advisors. They made sure we understood that membership was a life-long benefit, that Sisters we hadn’t even met yet would make a tremendous impact on our lives and that we should consider giving back to the Fraternity as alumnae members. As such, I have served in a variety of capacities for Alpha Xi Delta as well as being a member of the Monterey Bay Area National Alumnae Panhellenic group prior to joining the NPC delegation. Past and present Alpha Xi Delta Sisters have been great contributors to the National Panhellenic Conference, and I am thrilled to be one of its representatives to help educate collegians and alumnae on the value of its advocacy and support of the member groups.”

“The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is such an important organization. It promotes the development of leadership and academic success. NPC reaches so many women across North America, and I get to see the impact NPC has on women daily. I am so very proud to be a part of such a respected and progressive organization.”

Patrice Orr Blum, North CarolinaAsheville ’89 NPC responsibilities: Serves as the Area Advisor for a number of universities in the northeast and serves on the College Panhellenics Committee Past Alpha Xi Delta roles: Educational Leadership Consultant (1992-1993); Regional Collegiate Director (19962001); National C.A.R.E. Director (2001–2003); National Vice President (2003-2007); National Housing Corporation President (2007-2009); Chapter Development Specialist (2012–Present); and NPC Delegation (2013-Present) “During my new member period in the Zeta Tau Chapter at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, I was asked to serve as our chapter’s very first Junior Panhellenic Delegate. While I am one hundred percent positive that I did not fully ‘get it,’ I knew there was something pretty special about representing my chapter within the Greek community. I went on to serve as Panhellenic Vice President my senior year and have used the knowledge I acquired in that position throughout my entire volunteer career. When I was asked if I was interested in representing Alpha Xi Delta on our NPC delegation with the added bonus of getting to work with Deanna, Erin and Julie, I jumped at the opportunity.”
