Day two is underway and your chapter reports are amazing. I’m hearing stories about ‘family’ help after a bad break up (sdsu), raising tons of money for youth (asu), your amazing combined gpa (Kstate), your transgender awareness week (Csun), Our east coast call (SUNY), the flash mob you executed with brilliance (UH), gaining chapter status as lambda (Berkeley), the great retreats you put together (UCR),our brand new colony celebrating their induction (MUST) and many more achievements!
All of these things, and you, inspire me and help me see the vision that was created almost ten years ago. Convention always lifts me up and jolts be back to what is really important- Gamma Rho Lambda and you all, the future of an organization that has given so much to me during my undergrad and my alumnae times.
I hope everyone enjoyed seeing Romi from The Real L Word! She was kind enough to come a little early to be present for some of your chapter reports.
Our breakout sessions were much more organized and executed this year and somehow we remained on schedule the entire convention! I have a day three report coming to you soon.
It’s the end of our first day at convention 2012. I hope you enjoyed getting to know each other and your council. Personally, I found a great Korean place with Correa after our ice breakers and truly loved our progressive conversations.
Right now, yes now, council is working hard to make sure tomorrow goes exactly as planned and on time. Were also working on the details of your special guest for tomorrow; well we have two. One will be giving a break out session and the other is just a special guest!
I’ll sign off and post more with interesting photos.
If you’re on the way in. Please come see us in the lobby area to the left of the front desk. We will be handing out keys after 3pm and packets as soon as you arrive!
You can call if you’re lost. 404-702-5577
Council is working on the finishing touches for Convention 2012!
Here I am at 8 am in Nashville looking at photos of last convention and wishing it were here and now! The national council is so busy getting ready for you all to have a great time, learn and take it all back to your chapters as colonies. Natalie from Kappa Chapter will have buttons and you can request some from her on the facebook page. Jacinda, Korp and Correa have booked plenty of travel for all of you and for the council and I am prepping this blog so that you all can put your convention fun here.
I hope you all are ready to have a great time.
