Count down to Convention

I am getting really excited about heading to Texas at the end of the month.

It won't be the first time I've spent Canada Day outside of Canada, but it is the first time I've spent it in the US. It will also be cool to be in the States on July 4th.

Who else is going??

I'll be there, of course, since I'm on Convention Team! Things have been insane with that and will continue to be up until Convention. I can't believe it's less than month!

As for Canada Day Siob, you'll know it's Canada Day

You'll have a blast at Fiesta Texas/Six Flags--they have great shows there and some good rides. Our Convention hotel is right on the Riverwalk, and there are tons of restaurants and other fun establishments to visit. I am certain that everyone will have a great time.

I'll be there--as will my husband (in the evenings) AND my grandmother!!! My grandmother is going to be initiated as an alumna at Convention. She is so excited! So am I!!! She has all kinds of ideas about what its going to be like...I don't know if she gets it all yet but I am going to spend the next few weeks educating her so that she is ready for Convention and sisterhood. She is so wonderful and I cannot wait to share her with everyone. And I cannot wait to call her sister. There will be three other women initiating at Convention as well.

Safe travels to everyone. I think y'all will like San Antonio.

Does anyone know how many women will be initiated as alumni at convention this year?!!

one of the main reasons i'm going this year (besides the fact that i CAN'T bear to miss convention) is b/c one of my chapter sister's mother will also be initiated into our sisterhood! (did that make any sense?)

I'm so excited and PROUD.. i absolutely cannot wait to meet your grandmother!! (for the time being send her my love AND best wishes!)

I arrive tuesday afternoon - it's going to be a very long day - my flight leaves Vancouver at 7am, which means I have to be there shortly after 5am - which means I will be up at some ungodly hour - probably 3:30am . I'm just happy I live 5 minutes from the airport.

I know how you feel siob. My flight has been changed for the fourth time, and I know leave at 7:48 am on Tuesday...which means leaving the house at 5 am, which means getting up in the dark. UGH! But it'll be worth it. I only live ten minutes from the airport, but it's soooooo long waiting for security.

my flight also leaves at 7am, but i'm not as lucky as you both, the airport my flight leaves from is a good 1/2 to hour away depending on traffic!

BTW: Convention is 21 days away! (and counting!)

My understanding is that there will be four alumna initiates at Convention this year.

And yes--you can get initiated into DPhiE as alumna. That's how I got here! I was part of a colony that did not charter until after I graduated. Most of the time, our alumna initiates are women who have served the sorority in some way--as an advisor or house mother etc. And then we have a few that we recruited because of what they had to offer our sisterhood. If you want more info, just PM me.

Incidentally, besides Chi Omega's Convention before we officially start, Delta Delta Delta will have their Convention in San Antonio during the same time that we are there! San Antonio will be flooded with sorority women!

How do women get nominated to be initiated? Does it only happen during convention?

Thanks.

Any member or chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon can sponsor someone for alumna initiation. Approval to initiate an alumna is granted by the International President. Initiation can be conducted by a chapter or at a Delta Phi Epsilon function (like Convention) etc. My chapter held a ceremony specifically for me. Gamma Gamma chapter at Schreiner initiated their advisor's wife before a regular chapter meeting. There have been others who have been initiated at volunteer training meetings and, of course, at Convention.

It is a really neat opportunity for women who did not have an opportunity for traditional collegiate sorority experience.

I will be there!

And don't even complain about 7am. My flight leaves at 6:30am! That means I have to be at the airport by at least 5:30am and it's about at least 45 minutes away! boohoo! haha.
