Alumnae Involvement: What are you doing now?
 
I just wanted to see what the different alumnae on GC are involved with at their GLOs.

That, and I'm bored at home sick from my job and am bored.

Are you active in your alumnae chapter?
Are you an advisor?
Are you part of a chapter's housing corp?
Are you a regional/province/whatever officer?
Are you a national officer of some sort?
Something else?

I'm not active in a chapter yet because I badly need to focus on my academics so that I can get to the "real world" asap. Right now I pay dues, help with recruitment, and help with any other event if they need it. I'm on the same campus I graduated from, and because that was only a year ago I still know at least half the chapter and can be around to help when they need it.

I would love to be an adviser one day, but my organization stipulates being out 5 years to advise your own chapter and 3 for another, so I don't qualify yet anyway, and can't take on other commitments until I get out of school.

Are you active in your alumnae chapter? Yes.
Are you an advisor? HELL TO THE NAWWWW.
Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? What's that? If it has to do with an alumnae chapter house, we do not have a house. Some NPHC alumnae/alumni/graduate chapters have houses.
Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? No.
Are you a national officer of some sort? No.
Something else? Committees and membership intake.

I just started my term as Secretary for my alumnae association. :) I'm on House Board for a local chapter (not my own), but I'm really not crazy about it. I know they need the help, so I'll stay on for the time being.

I was recently asked to advise for a position that means a lot to me, and I'm about 80% sure I'll do it. I have to talk to the woman who asked me to get more details and ask a few questions. I should know in the next couple of weeks.

Xylochick216 09-15-2010 05:20 PM

Are you active in your alumnae chapter? There isn't one anywhere near me. We're working on getting one here.

Are you an advisor? Yes

Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? There's not one around here.

Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? No

Are you a national officer of some sort? I'm a national volunteer

Something else? I attended a conference about young alumnae involvement a few years ago. It was very motivating, but being in an area with one small chapter that doesn't really want outside help, it's been hard to stay involved. I advise for a chapter 2 hours away and would love to do more. I'm always asking for more to do!

AOIIalum 09-15-2010 07:31 PM

Are you active in your alumnae chapter? I'm a dues paying member to two alumnae chapters (one local, one about three hours away), and am as involved as my life allows!

Are you an advisor? Not now, but have previously held multiple advising positions including Chapter Adviser.

Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? Not now, but have previously served as a (Housing) Corporation President. The stories I could tell, and probably already told here, about that experience. I also helped with the last revision of our AOII Corporation Manual.

Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? I'm currently serving as a Network Specialist-Recruitment for Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Toronto. I work with all areas of Recruitment, Public Relations, Panhellenic and of course Ritual. Before my current position, I served as a Collegiate Network Specialist for 4+ years.

Are you a national officer of some sort? Nope, and that's more than fine by me because I adore what I'm doing now.

Something else? Yes, I was recently appointed as an AOII Foundation Ambassador! So excited to have this opportunity to share the amazing work our Foundation accomplishes!

LOL. I understand. Advising can be a little intense for some people. All the interaction with collegians and being so focused on them/what they're doing is not everyone's cup of tea.

IrishLake 09-15-2010 08:32 PM

Are you active in your alumnae chapter? - Nope, I went to one event a few years ago though. Just don't have the time, but I'm still on their email list. And I still pay my yearly dues directly to nationals.
Are you an advisor? Yes! I'm the newly appointed Education and Ritual Advisor for the chapter at my Alma Mater. I haven't really done anything yet, but I need to try to get up there ASAP.
Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? No, I don't even know what that is.
Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? Nope
Are you a national officer of some sort? Nope
Something else? Nope.

I am currently serving on both a National and a District team. I am also on my university's Greek Alumni Advisory Board as the ASA rep.

When you answer my pm - can you tell me about this? Like, did the Greek alums go ahead and do it themselves or did the Greek advisor do it? We theoretically have one but no one ever hears anything about it.
