I will be honest. In the fall of 1988, joining an alumnae chapter was not a priority of mine. I had recently graduated, married and relocated across the country. I was focused on my new husband, new home and new job. One day, however, I realized something else was new about me. I was lonely. I had no girlfriends. I missed my sisters. I decided to attend an alumnae event. I was nervous, didn’t know what to wear and worried no one would talk to me. But I went anyway. I was greeted at the door by a delightful lady who invited me to sit by her and kept the conversation flowing throughout the evening. I was grateful she made such an effort to welcome me. When I left, she gave me a hug. It felt good to be among Zetas again. My ZTA alumnae experience has taken me from coast to coast. Along the way, I realized alumnae chapters are wonderful places to meet people and get involved. I have sometimes been a member who merely pays dues, reads the newsletter and attends occasional meetings. Other years, I have served as an officer and attended Zeta Days and Conventions. I have made lifelong friends in each chapter I joined, and my sense of sisterhood has grown far beyond my college experience. This fall will mark 25 years since I attended that first meeting. I have learned that alumnae chapters vary in size, scope and activities. What they do not differ in is sisterhood. I have never joined a chapter because of what members did; I joined because of who they were. I have joined because every time—like the first time—I have been met with a smile and left with a hug.

Letters to Themis

of Zeta Tau Alpha

The return of Alpha Chapter Today & Forever: Living Our Values Promoting values-based recruitment



I want to commend Themis for the outstanding article “Values-Based Recruiting.” Since I received my first Themis in 1977, I have not seen any writing as poignant as this article in the spring 2013 issue. What a wonderful legacy for ZTA if every member of every link of our Chain embraced this guidance. Thank you for bringing such meaningful dialogue to the table.

The ZTA Foundation was recently recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference Foundation with the Award of Distinction for Best Use of a Foundation Grant for ZTA’s Alcohol Skills Training Program. ASTP focuses on strategies for reducing risks associated with drinking.

Thank you for publishing The Creed. It brought back memories of recruitment and meeting all my sisters. It was fabulous to read it again. I love when my Themis comes in the mail.

Danaka Fay Bulthuis

Alpha Kappa University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign I was reading Themis last night and came across our Creed. I can’t believe five strokes and 36 years later I still remember it word for word. It brings back beautiful memories of sisterhood, and it actually means so much more now than 36 years ago.

ZTA also received the following awards during the 2013 Fraternity Communications Association’s Annual Conference. • First place, Social Media Engagement • First place, Human-Interest Article (short) for “ZTA Becomes 90th Birthday Gift” in the winter 2012 Themis. • Third place, Design – Two-Page Spread for “Where Does My Money Go?” in the spring 2012 Themis.

Being a Zeta Tau Alpha collegiate chapter officer can be rewarding but hard work. These young women are asked to manage their peers, maintain big budgets, implement educational programming, plan large philanthropic and social events, and more. Let’s not forget all the problemsolving that occurs along the way. At National Leadership Conference 2013, ZTA further prepared our collegiate leaders to Take Charge of their chapters. July 11-14, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West in Indianapolis, 431 collegians gathered together to become better leaders and create stronger chapters. The crux of NLC programming was modeled after the DO IT method for solving problems, which was created by Robert Olson in “The Art of Creative Thinking.” Broken into four parts, it helps a person: • Define the Challenge • Open Mind and Brainstorm • Identify the Solution • Take Charge Throughout the course of NLC, attendees learned how to put each step of the DO IT method into practice by defining a challenge they face in their office and developing a personalized action plan, complete with measurable and actionable goals, to overcome it. “When National Council chose Take Charge as the theme for NLC, we chose it because we see ZTA’s 6 · Themis

biggest challenge as chapters who don’t get up and do the things they have promised they will do,” said National President Keeley McDonald Riddle during the State of the Fraternity Address at dinner on the first night of NLC. “We hope that by teaching you—the leaders of our chapters—to use the DO IT method of problem-solving, ZTA will see a resurgence of excellence across the country. More chapters will be empowered to Take Charge and truly go from good to great.” During general sessions, ZTA National Officers and guest speakers spoke about each step in the DO IT method. Speakers included Vice President Alumnae II Carolyn Hof Carpenter, Dr. Lori Hart of CAMPUSPEAK, Aimee Ash of Willow Marketing, former National President Alice McCann Mathews, Vice President Collegiate II Lynn Compton Chapman, and local improv comedy troupe, INDYPROV. Following each general session, collegians met in small groups—called Creative Crown Groups—for further discussion and to apply the DO IT step to the personal challenges they defined. Creative Crown Group meetings were facilitated by National Officers and provided time for hands-on activities. Women participated in team-building games, practiced numerous brainstorming techniques and more. For example, one activity was similar to speed dating, but instead of talking about themselves, pairs discussed their challenges and offered suggestions.

“Collegians always want to brainstorm and idea share, and I think ZTA put together a great program to let them do that,” said Jessica Eovino, Province President IV-B and Creative Crown Group facilitator. “They want to fix their problems. I think giving them tools on how to find new solutions was really perfect.” Katie Owens, President of Delta Zeta Chapter (Sam Houston State University) reiterated that sentiment. “I feel like now that we’ve seen the activities demonstrated and have actually done them ourselves, we can go back to our chapters and do it with our EC and PC, even with our new members. It will help us build those leaders.” Collegians were not the only ones who benefitted from NLC’s educational programming. National Officers arrived in Indianapolis prior to the collegians for their own training sessions. Beginning Tuesday evening, July 9, Province Presidents, Mentors, Directors of New Chapters and Supervisors discussed ZTA policy changes, best practices and more. District Presidents met about alumnae chapter operations. Phired Up

Productions, an educational firm specializing in recruitment, also met with both groups of National Officers to discuss its partnership with ZTA in terms of collegiate recruitment workshop assistance and the development of alumnae recruitment resources. “With help from the ZTA Foundation, who funds much of NLC, and the ZTA Fraternity Housing Corporation, ZTA has become a leader in the fraternity/sorority community,” said Mrs. Riddle. “It is our duty to develop leadership potential at all levels. This is why NLC is so important.” Now armed with action plans created at NLC, collegiate officers are more inspired than ever to Take Charge of their chapters. “I’m excited to Take Charge because I want to see my chapter grow,” said Erica Bullard, President of Eta Tau Chapter (The University of North Carolina at Charlotte). “In five years, I want to see us be the No. 1 chapter in the nation.”

STATE OF THE FRATERNITY ADDRESS Fraternity Housing Corporation President Julia Marthaler Hill, National President Keeley McDonald Riddle and Foundation President Becky Hainsworth Kirwan presented the State of the Fraternity Address during Thursday’s dinner. The address showed just how ZTA’s three entities have used the DO IT method to identify and solve ZTA’s challenges.

INTRODUCING THE DO IT METHOD Vice President Alumnae II Carolyn Hof Carpenter challenged attendees to follow in the footsteps of our Founders who took charge to create something new. She introduced the DO IT method to serve as a guide for chapter leaders.

NATIONAL OFFICER ACADEMIES Collegians were not the only ones benefitting from NLC’s educational opportunities. National Officers, particularly District Presidents, Province Presidents, Mentors, Directors of New Chapters and Supervisors, attended educational sessions to help them Take Charge of their positions. Beginning Tuesday night—two days before collegians arrived—these women learned best practices, reviewed new and existing ZTA policies, shared ideas, and more! Phired Up Productions even joined in on the fun. The educational firm provided tips on how to make both collegiate and alumnae chapter recruitment easier—by creating meaningful connections with one another.

DEFINING OUR CHALLENGES No chapter is perfect. Dr. Lori Hart of CAMPUSPEAK showed collegians how to define their challenges—the first step in DO IT.

BREAKOUT SESSIONS Collegians discussed ways to motivate members, get women invested in ideas, lead with courage and engage creatively on social media during breakout sessions led by National Officers. Each session was aimed to help sisters Take Charge of challenges and implement new ideas.

WEARING OUR CREATIVE CROWNS At NLC, your “creative crown” was just like a “thinking cap.” In groups of 10 collegians each—known as Creative Crown Groups—throughout the week, women walked through each step of DO IT, using creative techniques to solve challenges their chapters face.

ZTA IMPROV Having fun is part of the creative process. INDYPROV, an improv comedy troupe, taught the importance of thinking on your feet and outside of the box. Following a performance, troupe members led small groups for training. “It reminds you that it is ok to be ridiculous because good things can come from that,” said Lauren Guinn, Theta Eta Chapter (Stephen F. Austin State University).

THE PRICE IS RIGHT Using the “Price is Right” Money Game, Former National President Alice McCann Mathews drove home the Identify the Solution part of DO IT. Four women were asked to identify the price of a Crown & Co. item from a list of possibilities. Problemsolving in our chapters is similar. We must narrow our options to find the best one.

INTERNATIONAL OFFICE TOURS The Fraternity Housing Corporation and Former National Presidents led tours of IO as chapter representatives got a chance to take pictures, see the Chain of Chapters and find their chapter’s flag.

HONORING CHAPTER SUCCESS NLC is a time for learning and celebration! Saturday evening’s Crown Chapter Dinner honored those collegiate chapters that excel in multiple areas of chapter management. This year, 109 Crown Chapter Awards, 118 Quota/Total Awards, 29 Helping Hands Awards and four Financial Improvement Awards were given. (See page 12 for a complete list). In total, 133 different chapters were recognized!

10 · Themis

MENTORING Thanks to the DO IT method, each woman at NLC left with an action plan for solving a challenge within her chapter. On Saturday afternoon, each chapter met with its Province President/ Mentor/Director of New Chapters/ Supervisor to review these plans.

ZLAM JAM NLC is not all work and no play! ZLAM Jam provided the perfect late-night sisterhood event, complete with a giant ZTA dance party.

A BRUNCH PROVIDING FOOD FOR THOUGHT Following ritual services and before everyone left Indianapolis, Executive Director Deb Ensor had one more chance to inspire chapter leaders to Take Charge by leading with their values. During brunch, Ms. Ensor said, “It all starts with you. What you do today matters and will help you lead others. As a leader, you should strive to do the right things, for the right reasons, all of the time.”

REFLECTING ON OUR RITUAL Ritual and sisterhood go hand-in-hand! Formal Pledging and Rededication services were conducted in a teachable format to promote the significance of ZTA ritual.

Collegiate Member Profile

Wrangling in a bright future Even as a little girl, Alexis Bloomer was a natural reporter. Her parents, owners of a horse trailer company, would take her to rodeos and fairs across Texas, exposing her to the life of western sports—bull-riding, roping, etc. She would walk around these events with her hairbrush, stick it in people’s faces and ask them questions about their jobs and lives. In place of her hairbrush, Alexis now uses a real microphone to ask her questions. As a college junior, the Delta Zeta Chapter (Sam Houston State University) member has landed herself a few big-time sports broadcasting gigs. Most notably, this summer, Alexis became co-host of Western Sports Round Up, a daily, hour-long show on SiriusXM satellite radio’s new Rural Radio station. “This radio show is the first show of its kind,” Alexis said. “We are the ‘Sports Center’ for the western sports world. We give you live updates, live results. We have guests call in from events.” At 17 years old, Alexis’ journey into sports journalism began when she started writing for Rodeo News Magazine. This work and her familiarity with rodeo led her to subsequent reporting opportunities and her eventual role with Rural Radio. This fall, she will also host a nightly four-minute western sports segment on RFD-TV, a cable channel specializing in rural news and partner of SiriusXM.

Alexis Bloomer Delta Zeta Sam Houston State University SiriusXM radio host

“I don’t just want to report on rodeo,” Alexis said. “I want to revolutionize it. It’s just like every other sport, and I want to show people that.” One of the ways Alexis plans to “change the face of rodeo” is by giving it a face. While she broadcasts live from the Sam Houston State University campus in Huntsville, Texas, the plan for Western Sports Round Up is to highlight not just events but the lives of the athletes both inside and outside of rodeo. “I want to know the things behind the jersey,” Alexis said. “I want to get into the personal interest. It is what captures the audience’s attention.” In terms of her own attention, Alexis vows not to let her work come between her studies, ZTA—she serves as the Director of Social Events—and other campus activities. While recognizing her workload will be difficult, Sam Houston’s Outstanding Student Sophomore Leader for 2012-2013 recognizes that both school and work will benefit her education. “I am a big dreamer,” Alexis said. “My ultimate goal is to become the next Oprah Winfrey. I want to be able to have a talk show where I can interview people from all walks of life, find out little niches about people and highlight them.” And for now, reporting western sports is Alexis’ stepping stone toward that dream. The hairbrush interviews as a little girl have already helped her accomplish more than many 20-year-olds. Who knows where Rural Radio’s airwaves will take her? Fall 2013 · 13

How do you prove Zeta Is Forever? BY: ASHLEY MARTIN, EDITOR

Fall collegiate Formal Recruitment is over. Across the country, thousands of Zeta Tau Alpha new members are learning about the lifetime commitment they have made to our Fraternity. They hear the term Zeta Is Forever— which happens to be the name of ZTA’s new member program—and wonder what role the organization will play in their lives as alumnae. Will they still be friends with the women from their member class? Will they join an alumnae chapter? Will they strive to someday be a National Officer? It is not only our new members who question how to stay connected to ZTA after graduation. Alumnae too struggle with how to honor the bonds of sisterhood as they juggle their families, careers and other commitments. Fortunately, there are many ways one can prove Zeta Is Forever. You can be an active member of an alumnae chapter, or maybe simply reading each issue of Themis is how you stay connected. There is no “right” way to stay involved, and that is one of the best things about ZTA. As new members, the connections made with Zetas during recruitment are some of the main reasons we joined ZTA. As alumnae, those connections are the same reasons we stay involved. Zeta Is Forever is about honoring the relationships, new and old, that you create with sisters. It is the reason our Founders created the Fraternity and why our organization’s purpose statement begins, “The purpose of Zeta Tau Alpha is the intensifying of friendship.” This article highlights a few of the many ways an alumna can prove Zeta Is Forever. ZTA alumnae membership is not one-size-fits-all, and certain activities may be a better fit at one point in your life and not another. That’s ok. We 14 · Themis

encourage all alumnae to find some way, big or small, to connect to ZTA. What does Zeta Is Forever mean to you?


One of the easiest ways to stay connected to ZTA as an alumna is to join one of the 239 alumnae chapters across North America and overseas. (Yes, ZTA has two chapters in Canada and a Zetas Abroad chapter for sisters in Europe.) Alumnae chapters provide a wide variety of social, philanthropic and personal development programming for their members. Whether it is dinner out, a pink ribbon distribution or a book club, sisterhood is at the core of alumnae chapter membership. Katie Espinosa (Delta Pi Chapter, Eastern New Mexico University) joined the Eastern New Mexico Alumnae Chapter shortly after her graduation and eventually became a chapter officer. Making new friends was important to her, but as she moved to a different part of the state, distance made it harder and harder for her to stay involved. After months of wishing there was an alumnae chapter closer to her new home, she finally called International Office and asked how to start a new chapter. “A couple other ladies in town and I had talked about it, but we didn’t really know how to do it,” Katie said. “Even though we had no clue what we were doing, it’s not as hard as you think.” Since the Pecos Valley, NM Chapter’s first meeting in November 2012, Katie and the other chapter officers have learned a lot about managing an alumnae chapter and getting women engaged. For them, getting people to join the alumnae chapter is a lot like collegiate recruitment. At the chapter’s first event, the women simply had conversations with one another and used

Alumnae Feature their stories to determine women’s interests and hobbies. This information is what was used when developing the chapter calendar. “We are trying to take the seriousness out of it,” Katie said. “We try to become friends. The biggest part of an alumnae chapter is being social and reconnecting, getting that sisterhood back.” Although the chapter is small and diverse in age, Katie wouldn’t have her alumnae experience any other way. “I’ve made so many new friends,” Katie said of her alumnae experience. “Our oldest member isn’t anywhere close to my age, but she is so excited about ZTA. If someone is still that interested in ZTA this far out of school, it really shows you Zeta Is Forever.” To find an alumnae chapter near you, utilize the Chapter Locator on or call International Office at (317) 872-0540.


Kaye Forsythe Fenton (Alpha Zeta Chapter, The Ohio State University), is not a member of an alumnae chapter and her own collegiate chapter is no longer active, but she does not let that stop her from being connected to ZTA. Attending Convention is her way to stay involved.

“There is a special, intangible bond that connects your hearts together. That’s what I think ZTA is.”


Soon after her graduation from The Ohio State University, Kaye joined the Columbus, OH Alumnae Chapter and became an advisor with her collegiate chapter. For years, she attended alumnae chapter events, mentored young Zetas and relished the alumnae membership experience. But after moving to North Carolina, Kaye’s relationship with ZTA began to change. Her ZTA friends were no longer close by, there was no alumnae chapter in her area to join, and her Alpha Zeta Chapter closed. It wasn’t until ZTA’s Centennial Convention—36 years after her initiation—that Kaye found a way to be involved once again. Kaye, along with several of her ZTA sisters from college, attended the Convention to celebrate the Fraternity’s 100th anniversary. Here, she discovered that it didn’t matter if she was no longer involved in ZTA in any other capacity, this was her opportunity to reconnect with the reason she joined ZTA—friendship. “Convention makes me feel like I am involved and I can share things with the younger members,” Kaye said. “I love getting to spend time with the other women from North Carolina and cheering for them. It gives me a way to contribute and help move ZTA forward.” Over the past 15 years, Kaye has only missed one ZTA Convention. And because her collegiate chapter is inactive, she has been honored to carry Alpha Zeta’s flag in the processional during Convention’s opening business meeting. It is her own way to prove Zeta Is Forever.


Hope Carberry Brusevold (Kappa Chapter, The University of Texas at Austin) and Brandi Dickenson Elmore (Zeta Chi Chapter, Tennessee Technological University) are two of 861 women who currently serve as ZTA collegiate chapter advisors. These important alumnae volunteers mentor collegiate Zetas and serve as their most visible example of ZTA involvement at the alumnae level. For Hope, the Program Council Advisor for Kappa Chapter, the reason she became an advisor was the desire to give back to ZTA in the same way she was helped as a collegian. “I have been really blessed by all of the mentors I have had in my life who have taught me the importance of leadership and development,” Hope said. “One of my mentors was my advisor while I was in college. I want to give back and provide that for the next generation. She really gave us tools to be leaders and create ideas.”

Alumnae Feature

“It’s very hard, especially as a working mom, to keep close friendships. In ZTA, that support system already exists. All you have to do is reach out, and the sisterhood is there.”


Brandi, the General Advisor for one of ZTA’s newest chapters, Lambda Kappa Chapter (Appalachian State University), agrees. “There were sisters before me who paved a silver path, and now I want to continue that service so future Zetas can benefit from the love we share as a sisterhood.” At the same time advisors provide guidance for collegiate chapters, skills advisors learn throughout the experience also play a vital role in their own lives. The ability to work with younger people, manage others and balance 16 · Themis

schedules are all strengths honed by advising. It also brings you closer to Zeta Tau Alpha. “As advisors, we get to see women come in as new members, graduate and become alumnae,” Hope said. “At one time, we get to see and be a part of friendships at all levels. We have a really great view of seeing Zeta Is Forever.” “One thing I did not anticipate,” Brandi said, “was all of the new alumnae I have been blessed to meet throughout the process. From my fellow advisors, to National Officers, to legacies’ moms, I have really loved making so many new ZTA connections.”


Roxanne Trovato Wood (Gamma Xi Chapter, Indiana University of Pennsylvania) has stayed connected to Zeta Tau Alpha in many different ways over the years. She has been a member of the Silver Spring, MD Alumnae Chapter, attended Conventions, helped colonize new collegiate chapters, and even served on National Council as Vice President Alumnae I. But one of her favorite ways to give back to ZTA is to donate to the Foundation. “I have been donating to the Foundation since I first graduated from college, even though it was only $25,” Roxanne said. “We see the result of our contributions on college campuses around the country and in every Themis.” For Roxanne, the Foundation’s scholarship program is one of the main reasons she gives. But the ZTA Foundation funds—either fully or partially—so many aspects of Zeta Tau Alpha. Think Pink® activities, educational programming for collegiate and alumnae chapters, Convention and National Leadership Conference, the Traveling Leadership Consultant program, and more are all paid for by donations to the Foundation. Whenever asked why someone should donate to the Foundation, Roxanne will always give the same answer. “I tell them the same thing former National President Martha C. Edens said to me in 1989. ‘It is important to donate your time, but we need to lead by example and make a financial contribution.’” Without even having to leave your home, donating to the Foundation is one of the easiest ways for a member to ensure Zeta Is Forever. Visit donate to make a donation to the Foundation.

Alumnae Feature

This summer, 107 Epsilon Chapter (University of Arkansas) alumnae gathered for a special reunion. Large and informal gatherings of sisters are just a few of the ways alumnae can stay connected to the Fraternity and prove Zeta Is Forever.


One of the most important aspects of Zeta Tau Alpha is the friendships you make with your sisters. Nurturing these relationships is perhaps the easiest way to prove Zeta Is Forever. You don’t even need a ZTA-sponsored activity to do it.

“It’s the relationships in life that matter more than anything,” Darra said when asked what Zeta Is Forever means to her. “Friends we had when we were children, we are still friends with. It is just a bond. It is like family.”

All across the country, ZTA alumnae quietly gather for coffee, attend each other’s weddings, and even plan vacations together. This summer, alumnae from Epsilon Chapter (University of Arkansas) were just some of the many Zetas who celebrated their friendships during a special reunion.


Twenty-five years ago, Linda Butler Auman and Darra Dismuke helped plan the first reunion for women who joined Epsilon Chapter in the 1960s. Now known as the Sisters of the Sixties, these Zetas have their own Facebook page, email listserv, event planning committee, and meet annually to reconnect with one another and ZTA. From a trip to St. Simon’s Island in Georgia with about 30 women, to a gathering of 107 Zetas in Fayetteville, Ark., nothing stops them from getting together.

ZTAlways is open to all alumnae Zetas and provides a forum to make new friends, stay up-todate on ZTA happenings, and encourages service in one’s local community.

“When we get back together, it’s like we were never apart,” Linda said. “I think the older we get, the more we realize how important these ZTA connections are.” Activities vary from each Sisters of the Sixties gathering to the next, but friendship is always at the core. Each year, a Memorial Service is held to honor sisters who have passed, scrapbooks and photo albums are dusted off, and memories of college life are reminisced.

Are you looking for a different way to reconnect with ZTA? The ZTAlways virtual alumnae chapter is a great way to get involved.

“For me personally, as a military spouse, I have found ZTAlways has allowed me to reach out to sisters across the globe,” said ZTAlways Chairman Jennifer Kuehl Williams (Eta Xi Chapter, Virginia Tech). “It is a great way to stay connected even when you don’t have time or access to a landbased alumnae chapter.” Visit for more information on how to join.

Alumna Member Profile

Education under the sea The ocean is more than 1,000 miles from Kansas, but Kim Houk Houtz doesn’t let distance keep her from learning and teaching about it. In 2010, the high school biology teacher began traveling with National Geographic on oceanography expeditions. Kim, a Sigma Chapter (Baker University) alumna, was encouraged to apply for National Geographic’s National Teacher Leadership Academy on oceans by a fellow teacher. Given Kansas’ not-so-close proximity to any ocean, Kim applied but doubted she would be selected as one of the 60 teachers to participate. “I think one of the reasons I was selected, is that everyone, everywhere is affected by the ocean,” Kim said.

Kim Houk Houtz Sigma Baker University teacher

The academy included two years of traveling, researching and studying with other teachers and oceanography professionals. During her first year, Kim studied at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif. For her second year, Kim studied at the National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C. As her term with the academy came to an end, Kim wasn’t ready to complete her oceanography adventures. She was selected for a Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship, awarded to teachers who demonstrate excellence in geography education. The goal is to enhance educators’ learning through direct experience they can bring back to their classrooms. As part of the fellowship, she went on an Arctic expedition for 11 days, traveling very near the North Pole. “Not many people get the opportunity to go to the Arctic,” Kim said. “Almost everything there is a preservation area. It was a great experience.” While on the expedition, Kim worked with students to answer questions and help them understand the lessons. For these students, and her own back in Kansas, Kim strives to help them connect the information to their own lives. “I think the key to being a good teacher is to have students see that what you’re teaching them applies to their lives,” she said. “It needs to grab their interest so they see it is worth learning and is going to have an impact on them or on society as a whole.” This is something ZTA did for Kim. “Being a Zeta helped shape my life,” she said. “I wasn’t really thinking about going into teaching in college, but ZTA encouraged me to take on leadership roles and become a better rounded person.” Both ZTA and her work as a teacher allow Kim to give back. These days, she stays busy by not only teaching and taking Arctic expeditions, but she also gives back to ZTA as Financial Advisor for Beta Upsilon Chapter (Kansas State University) and Historian-Reporter for the Flint Hills, KS Alumnae Chapter.

FHC News

House Directors Seminar expands The successful operation of a sorority house requires an effective partnership between the House Director who manages the operations and staff, the ZTA alumnae volunteers who serve as caretakers of the property, the collegians who live in the house and the chapter advisors who mentor the members. For 24 years, the ZTA Fraternity Housing Corporation has trained House Directors at a biennial seminar, funded by the ZTA Foundation and held at the Iota Theta Chapter house at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. But housing volunteers and advisors were left to learn on the job, with the help of a manual and communication with FHC directors.

volunteers attended. Among the House Association Presidents was Sally Reeves Walter, who this year will help her own Zeta Chapter (The University of Tennessee, Knoxville) move into its very first chapter house. “I was thrilled to find out I was invited to attend,” Sally said. “The notebook we received is excellent and it’s a good place to go for resources. But I need to know ‘why’ if I’m going to do a good job. At the seminar, the information we needed was discussed and we learned the reasoning behind the ‘why.’”

The July 2013 seminar enlarged the invitation list. “Through the generosity of the Foundation, we were able to invite housing volunteers and advisors to learn along with the House Directors,” says FHC President Julia Marthaler Hill. “Having the different players together was wonderful.”

For Alpha Upsilon Chapter (Oklahoma State University) General Advisor Sheila Schwartz Parsons (Eta Upsilon, Missouri Southern State University), the seminar enlarged her focus. “Our perspective is what happens with the local house corporations at OSU,” she said. “It’s helpful to know what works for other chapters and that we have the support of the FHC team. Their knowledge and resources have shown me that there may be better options.”

Nineteen house directors, six advisors and seven local housing

Even veteran House Directors learned they still had more to learn. Janet

Wiewel worked 10 years for another sorority at Colorado State University before moving to Beta Upsilon Chapter (Kansas State University) to be closer to family in the Kansas City area. “We were given so much valuable information,” Janet said. “We were made to feel ZTA was there to pick us up if we stumbled. The presenters made us all feel valuable to the Zeta Tau Alpha family.” Debbie Dickinson is in her sixth year as House Director at Theta Tau Chapter (The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.), but for family and health reasons, she had not yet attended a ZTA seminar. “I am so glad I went,” she said. “Getting to meet the other House Directors, I realized we are all dealing with the same problems. Sometimes I think I’m the only one. “But the greatest benefit was meeting the FHC board. I am amazed at the dedication of these alumnae and the time and expertise they put into making sure ZTA housing across the country runs smoothly. They truly love ZTA and it shows.” Nineteen House Directors, six advisors and seven local housing volunteers join ZTA Fraternity Housing Corporation board members for the House Directors Seminar in July. The event is hosted at the Iota Theta Chapter house and funded by the ZTA Foundation.

From the Archives

Themis turns 110 By Susan Beard, Delta Psi Patricia Cords Levitte, Beta Phi Archives Committee Co-Chairmen

serve as a quarterly journal, Themis soon expanded into a softcover, bound magazine.

November 2013 marks the 110th anniversary of the first issue of Themis. Our Fraternity’s magazine has not only chronicled our organization’s development, but has provided a snapshot of the changing cultural history of the nation. We want to share with you some early history of Themis and how different it is from the magazine you receive today.

The earliest issues are very chatty and assume most of the readers know each other. As ZTA was a very young organization at this point, it was probably true that readers personally knew most of the people mentioned. Themis was very focused on the social aspect of our organization. There was information about chapters but not as much as you might think. Many of the early issues had articles or poems written by Zetas, and they covered a wide range of subjects that didn’t necessarily have anything to do with sorority life. A large part of the magazine was taken up by directories and social announcements such as engagements, weddings, births (even

The first issue (shown below) was four sheets of folded newsprint paper. This was the only issue to be printed in such a way, and it was done mainly as a test to see what would be the most economic form of printing. Realizing that four pages were not enough to

baby photos) and deaths. There were even long stories about histories of universities where ZTA had chapters and full texts of speeches given by Zetas at luncheons and club meetings. Constructing each early issue was a task, as the editor had to wait for members to submit articles. Many of these articles were handwritten and had to be converted to typewritten copies before they could be sent to the publisher. Often, telegrams were sent to request overdue articles and information from members. In fact, the ZTA Archives has many of these expensive, early reminders. The magazine has had a variety of members serve as editor and staff since its inception, and the high turnover of volunteers did affect the quality


Before there were email reminders, Themis editors like Shirley Kreasan Strout had to send pricey telegrams to magazine contributors. and tone. Subscribing to Themis was optional in the early years, and the uncertain finances of the magazine also played a part in the varying quality of the issues. Themis had its greatest challenges in the early 1910s, due to the illness of editor Margaret Levy Feuille (Kappa Chapter, The University of Texas at Austin) and the untimely death of editor Mary Wyatt Galbraith (Zeta Chapter, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville). At this point, Grand Chapter (what is now National Council) began to focus on a permanent solution to improve the magazine. It took almost another decade, but the golden age of Themis really began in 1922, when Shirley Kreasan Strout (Tau Chapter, Millikin University) was elected to Grand Chapter as the National Editor. By 1923, she became the National Historian-Editor, adding archival tasks to her responsibilities. At this time, Themis began to improve quickly, partially in thanks to the creation of the Themis Endowment Fund. This fund provided lifelong subscriptions to all members who kept their addresses updated with our headquarters. It also solved the magazine’s financial problems and allowed Mrs. Strout to focus on writing, rather than soliciting paid subscriptions.

Over the next three decades, under Mrs. Strout’s leadership, Themis would become a densely packed, information-filled journal, noted in the Greek publishing world for its high quality information. Reading issues of Themis from the 1930s and 1940s may require a magnifying glass, as the text is tiny and every inch of the paper is filled. The Themis copies from this time are filled with lists of new members, detailed descriptions of “rush parties,” and stories about Zetas with unique jobs and lifestyles. The magazine also began to focus more on ZTA collegiate and alumnae chapters. Mrs. Strout’s National EditorHistorian position on Grand Chapter was paid and was the beginning of what would eventually become ZTA’s Communications Department. Like the department today, she was responsible for not just Themis, but for writing and editing all ZTA publications. So while an early issue of Themis might bear little resemblance to the awardwinning magazine we now publish, the basic idea is still the same. For the past 110 years, Themis has aimed to promote our mission, purpose and activities while inspiring members to maintain contact with our Fraternity, wherever they may be.

Founders’ Day Proclamation 2013 Zeta Tau Alpha was just 15 years old in 1913 when Grand Chapter decided each alumnae chapter should have a “definite piece of work” to do. Rose Nelson Hughes, the second ZTA Director of Alumnae wrote, “I have urged each chapter … to take up some definite work either for the Fraternity … or to engage in social service work in its community. This plan, we find, answers a twofold mission: it helps to conserve interest; it is working for others.” One hundred years later, our members continue to find the “definite piece of work” that binds them to ZTA for a lifetime. As collegians, we learn that Zeta Is Forever. Every day our alumnae exemplify this truth and reap the 44 · Themis

rewards of their dedication. Our collegiate advisors experience the joy of mentoring young women who mature from new members to confident graduates. Our alumnae chapter officers find delight in engaging sisters through social and service events. Our ZTA Foundation donors take pride in providing scholarships that help other sisters continue their education. And many alumnae renew their bonds of friendships at reunions with college sisters. Each of us can find her own way to “conserve interest” in Zeta Tau Alpha for a lifetime.
