Wow! This sorority year is moving along so fast! We had a GREAT Regional Conference in Miami, Florida. That was a conference that sorors will be talking about for months. The Southeastern Region Executive Board and Florida Area VI Sorors put on a memorable weekend: smooth registration, workshops started on time, received our International President Mary Wright, business was conducted and sessions ended early, great vendors for shopping, beautiful Amicae prayer breakfast, honored community leaders and announced new hall of fame inductees, gave a truck load of supplies and $$$ to The Lotus House (Regional Z-HOPE project), MIP certification was held, ate well (really well) and recognized our Undergraduates. The 78th Southeastern Regional Leadership Conference is now a memory but for those who attended, I pray you enjoyed the weekend. Our theme of "Building on the Principles of Zeta While Blazing New Paths" kicked off in style. Thank you to all that attended.
Membership drives are moving forward and I congratulate all states for the wonderful reports coming in from our National First Vice President. Keep up the exceptional efforts... and we will remain Second to None!
Now we are jumping both feet into our International President’s community service programs. The Adopt-A-School Toolkit is now available. Please take advantage of the conference workshop helpful hints in conjunction with the toolkit to initiate or document your already standing partnership with an elder care facility.
Kudo’s to Shaneesa Ashford, GA State Director, the State of Georgia Executive Board and the ladies of George for kicking off the 2013 State Conferences during the first weekend in March. Those who were unable to attend missed a high time. We’re looking forward to the South Carolina State Conference on the weekend of April 6th, the Virgin Islands State Conference on the weekend of April 20th and the Florida State Conference the weekend of May 4th. While attending the upcoming State Conferences, please look for and greet the delegations from our three newly chartered chapters:
• Omega Omicron Zeta in Melbourne, FL
• Zeta Upsilon at Johnson & Wales University, North Miami, FL
• Omega Upsilon Zeta in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
To all Southeastern Region Undergraduates…keep up the good work and remember to submit the forms to be eligible for the multiple state awards. You’re doing so much…you should brag and that’s an excellent way to show what you’re doing on your campus. I am also sending out special greetings to our Zeta Amicae and Zeta Youth (Archonettes, Amicettes and Pearlettes) of the Southeastern Region. Thank you for your support and we look forward to hearing all that you are accomplishing!
This greeting partners with the unveiling of the Southeastern Regional website revisions. Thank you to our webmistress, LaWanda Harper for her hard work!
Lastly, the 79th Southeastern Regional Conference is heading to Augusta! More information will be distributed in April.
