Alumnae Perspective

Each month, we'll be having our collegiate and alumnae blog writers post about their Alpha Phi experiences. Want to write for the Alpha Phi blog? E-mail aschuman@alphaphi.org

As we start the new year, it means a new crop of Alpha Phi collegiate officers who are ready to take their chapters to the next level and that means tis the season of Regional Conferences.

So far, there have been three regional conferences with five more to go through the end of February. If you are attending as a collegiate or as an alumnae, regional conferences are the best way to reconnect with those sisters you only see once or twice a year while learning how to be a stronger leader.

If this is the first conference you are attending you are in for a treat. The Regional Teams and Conference Coordinators have worked tirelessly to provide a weekend of fun and education. The ultimate goal is for officers to come away with a better knowledge of Alpha Phi and how to perform their position to their best ability by providing them with the resources to ensure they are successful.

If you are an alumnae, don’t worry there are still ways of getting involved with Alpha Phi. Some Regional Conferences are even offering alumnae programming. For example, at the Southwest Regional Conference they are providing a Professional Development series. The goal is to expand alum’s professional network, learn how to stand apart from other candidates on the job market and develop professional skills needed to take off in their career.
