Maybe next time I'll just not procrastinate

Feeling a little anxious here!!!!

My resume should have arrived on Friday around noon. Tomorrow is the alum meeting. I expected to have at least heard that my resume did arrive safely. I'm such a worrier!

((deep breath))((deep breath)) The US mail works, right??

Breathe in, breathe out. Good.

I'm sure it got there just fine, and if they were expecting it they would have let you know if it hadn't arrived. You might send an email to your contact, or give them a call, if you're really worried about it.

I saw someone wearing a shirt that said Little Women on the front today. I looked on the back to see if there were Greek letters on the back, but no luck! Oh, well. . .

Of course, I couldn't just be patient! Last night, I e-mailed my Little Women contact, and she wrote back right away. Yes, she did receive my resume, and copies have been made for the alumnae. I feel much better! She seemed pleased with my resume, so I'm glad of that. It was hard to put together a "volunteer work" resume without looking like I was saying "Hey! Look at all the stuff I've done!" Know what I mean? Anyway...I hope it is well received at the Alum meeting TODAY!

Not much to report, I'm afraid. I think a little misunderstanding on my part prevented the alumnae from seeing my resume at their meeting on the 16th I got an e-mail (several weeks ago) saying that my "contact" would like to have my resume for the alums to see on the 16th. I assumed that meant that my contact would be present at the meeting, and I didn't even take a look at her address. I just saved the message and went about updating my resume. Then my schedule got really hectic, and I put off sending the resume until the weekend before the alum meeting. I sent the resume overnight express. However, my contact lives in a different state than the Alumnae Club! She probably intended to mail my resume to the alums, so obviously, there wasn't enough time for that to happen. I didn't think of that until later. I just hope this won't cause a big delay. Alumnae groups meeting fairly often, right?

I think each group is different, but ours meets once a month. I've seen some that meet more and some that meet less. Good luck!!

I think it really depends on the group -- we tend to have two events per month; I have no idea if that's considered often or not! If the Alum group has a webpage, they might have a calendar of events to give you an idea of when they are meeting.

I haven't been able to find a website for the alum club. There is an Alumnae Panhellenic group, but Little Women doesn't have a link there.

Homecoming is October 17-18!! I can't wait to meet the college sisters and some alumnae.

I hope that all works out for you and Little Women...

How exciting for you!! You have a great outlook and I think that you are an attribute to any group that you pledge...chalk up another good one for the NPC!

Smile UPDATE!!!

I'm thrilled to report that things are moving along again. Next weekend is Homecoming at my alma mater, and this Saturday, I received an invitation to a Little Women Tea for the chapter's alums, as well as members of the local Alumnae Club that might sponsor me!!! Also, my Regional Officer contact will be meeting me before the tea so that I do not have to arrive feeling alone and very shy

The invitation was so nice; it had a great picture from the chapter's Spring Formal...all those happy faces. The letter enclosed (addressed to chapter alums) conveyed that the chapter is doing well, having taken in the largest pledge class in recent history. Hooray Little Women!!

Now the big problem...What do I wear??? Until I heard about the tea, I was planning to wear football game attire and my college alumna pin. Now I don't know! What would you wear to both a football game and a tea???

Are the two events being held at the same university? If not, then maybe you can change clothes between the two. If they are, and I've heard of occassions where the members all go together to the game, then you wouldn't be able to change. Plus let's not forget that it wold be silly to go to the game wearing something really nice.

I'm not sure how formal Little Women's tea might be. Can you go to a website and look for photos from last year? Hmm....maybe a nice pair of slacks with a cute sweater top?

Both events are at the same school. Unfortunately, there is not a chapter website, so I can't really anticipate the formality of this tea. I guess I'll just ask. The last time I went to Homecoming, I noticed that a lot of people seemed overdressed. Maybe that is because they were also going to special alumni events afterward.

If that is the case I would go with whatever you saw the people wearing, because that is probably what was going on. It's better to be overdressed for the football game than underdressed for the tea.
