rhoyal--

How did your get all your graduate affiliate orgs together to do that in your city? Just asking? I thought of doing something like that in my area, but folks have not reached that level yet.

Good luck on your event!!! I hope you get some interesting insights.

This sounds like a wonderful idea! I'm still new in the game and already I'm tired of hearing: "Do you guys stomp?"

The Philly chapter of the NPHC has been around for a long time and is very established and known throughout the city. They are responsible for hosting the Philly Greek every year. Each of the NPHC orgs (Alumnae chapters) in the Philly area has representatives that regularly attend the Philly NPHC meetings and like any other chapter, there are officers, committees, and committee chairs. Having a local chapter of the NPHC in a city keeps all of the Alumnae NPHC chapters socializing and working together. There is always something to do and we all support eachother's events as well as the local NPHC events. To start a chapter in your city, contact the NPHC national headquarters or go to their website to find out the process. Then you'd have to contact the local NPHC Alumnae chapters in your area to see who's interested.

We have one for a very long time. But doing a "Meet the Greeks" event has not occurred to them because most folks think that is an undergraduate type of thing...

Anyhow, it seems like a great idea where we can invite some key people and build networks. Also to attract interests and potentials.

Good luck on your event.

^^^ I can't say what the attitude of the Greater Atlanta Pan-Hellenic Council is, but I think the even is a great idea.

Good luck to y'all in Philly! I'm looking forward to the update.

I'm glad that every org will be there. It should be a huge success.

Not like my opinion counts for this NPHC chapter, but I would have rather the Greek-meeting happened within the context of a community empowerment day or a health fair. Then the "we do more than step" would be more evident without them having to ask about it. This is kind of undergradish (we did NPHC question-answer sessions and a joint NPHC-IFC panel).

The local NPHC chapter used to do socials (not a meet the greeks because 99% of the attendees were Greek) and hosts a number of social and service programs. Always a good turnout but the high accomplishments of the individual organizations' graduate chapters often overshadow what the NPHC chapter is doing.

I agree. For us, it would nice to see my NPHC affiliate to do an overarching community service "open house" or display of all our programs. So when there are children, youth programs, then the community and affiliates can rally behind it.

I think they decided to go with the whole "Meet the Greeks" theme because the NPHC is doing this together. Individually it's not uncommon to see groups with their tables at community fairs and events and as for a community service "open house," we have one coming up in June although we call it our "Public Meeting." But I do think they could've left out the "...We Do More Than Step" part but I do understand why they did it. The Philly NPHC and the individual groups get lots of invitations to step at different events around the city and people are just tired of it already.

I don't blame them for being tired of it.

At the graduate level, I haven't seen too many chapters only invited to stuff to step. But at the undergraduate level, it seems the only time the university or other student organizations wanted our presence was if we were going to step. I remember when a fraternity was invited to step at the state fair for some kids and it worked out very well. But surely they could've done something other than step.

BTW, what's up with the Philly Greek? Is the Philly NPHC going to bring it back to its glory days?
