1993 Summer - To Dragma

Vol. LXVI, No. 3






As I prepared my last To Dragma article as your International President, I
reviewed my first four columns. In those articles, I outlined my dreams for Alpha
Omicron Pi and the challenges I felt the Fraternity faced during this decade. Though
we are still facing most of them, we are making tremendous progress.

We've taken the first steps:
We have begun programs and acquired staff support to meet many of the challenges, but we have a long way to

go before all the needed programs are finalized. We have to work on our concepts. We must edit and refine each pro-
gram before completion. And, finally, we must implement these programs.

The Fraternity has realized the importance of strengthening and increasing alumnae development. The Rose Vine
Program is in place. An alumnae newsletter is being sent to key alumnae. Extension efforts have become more pro-
active. More alumnae chapters have been chartered. Alumnae Regional Directors have been appointed and trained.

We have become more pro-active in providing closer chapter supervision, support, and guidance. We've developed
a new Chapter Enhancement Program to be implemented by the Fraternity as needed. It involves analyzing chapter sit-
uations, setting criteria, creating a team approach, writing a plan of action, enlisting financial aid from the Fraternity, and
following procedures. The goal of this new program is an improved chapter with appropriate accountability.

Incredible young women are applying for our Chapter Consultant positions. The training is becoming more pro-
fessional and accountable. The Resident Consultant program is beginning to evolve into a stronger supportive system
for chapters.

The new member orientation program is being introduced at the International Convention in June. Pilot programs
are scheduled for this fall, with full implementation by summer of 1994. New videos are available. A resource library
for members' use is available through International Headquarters. New programming is being developed.

During the past four years a new Executive Director has been hired and new staffpositions have been added. A
Financial Management study resulted in a new concept for the financial system. The goal is increased fiscal responsi-
bility with stringent criteria and appropriate supervision and accountability by all entities of A0I1. An improved
computer system is up and running. In short, AOII expects its operations to be professional while understanding the
needs of its volunteers.

The first Advisers Institute was held last summer; 22 women spent a weekend in intensive training. Now they are
training advisers in their regions. We have made a start toward providing a stronger support system for our volunteers.

We're trying to improve cooperation and communication in every area of AOII. Our training emphasizes this; our
staff is asked to be responsive in a timely manner; and our officers are expected to be in constant and consistent com-
munication with their volunteers. Executive Board members are expected to communicate weekly with each other and
those under their direction.

During this biennium, our visibility has increased. We doubled the number of State Days, increased chapter
exchange visits, held several regional workshops, and conducted successful public relations campaigns. This is just the

My greatest inspiration: you!
As International President, my greatest inspiration has been the AOIls I've met. You provide the energy, enthusi-

asm, the expression of positive values, and the enhancement of membership which make AOII a vital organization.
AOII's success is due to you and your dedication. The future of AOII depends on your involvement, aggressive action,
and leadership. I came along for the ride, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for your support, smiles, and
notes of encouragement. Thank you for the experiences. And, most importantly, my sincere thanks for the terrific mem-
ories that will last for my lifetime.

I "Accepted the Challenge" and you accepted the challenge. I urge each of you to continue accepting the chal-
lenges. Make AOII membership the most valuable experience we can offer. Make the most of your membership.
Continue your lifetime commitment to A O H

Alpha love,

AOII is that we maintain a lifelong
sisterhood, work toward excellence,
and serve others through our philan-

short, are meant to be deep, nour-

But, the question is, how do we
achieve these ideals? How do we
build relationships with our A0I1

importantly, with ourselves?

There are no perfect answers to
these questions, but this section of To

starting point. Some of the ways we
can build relationships are:

that is what transforms a rushee into an

Legacy Rush — the Policy

Alpha Omicron Pi strongly encourages the pledging ofqualified legacies. Every known legacy shall be given special consideration in mem-
bership selection.

During formal rush and throughout the chapter's Continuous Open Bidding, every verified legacy shall be offered a bid to membership
unless the chapter has a reason for denying a bid and communicates that reason to the alumna involved or the chapter's Regional Director.

If the formal rush schedule includes several invitational party rounds before Preference (the final invitational party) the legacy shall be invit-
ed to all invitational parties before Preference UNLESS the chapter has determined that the legacy is definitely not a rushee to be pledged and
that decision has been approved by the appropriate adviser. In no case should a legacy be denied an invitation to at least one invitational party
after the open house, tours, or ice water party round. At any point during rush when the chapter and the adviser concur that a legacy be
droppedfromconsideration for pledging, the adviser MUST communicate by telephone with the AOI1 relative prior to the distribution of
invitations to the next set of parties. If the concern of the chapter is that the legacy has expressed strong interest in another sorority and lesser
interest in AOI1, rushing efforts should be increased.

Every legacy who accepts an invitation to the chapter'sfinalparty (Preference) must be named on the chapter's QUOTA LIST (also
known as first bid list).

If no contact is possible between a designated adviser and the AOI1 relative ofa legacy not extended a bid to membership, notice that the
legacy has been dropped without contact must be sent to the chapter's Regional Director and International Headquarters within one week
after the date the rushee is dropped, in no case later than one week afterformalrush.

This policy defines a legacy as a sister, daughter, granddaughter, stepsister, stepdaughter, or step-granddaughter of an initiated member
ofAlpha Omicron Pi.

Legacy Information Form

"When any ofus has a legacy, we dream ofthe possibility ofher joining us as a member ofAOI1. How sepcial it is to want our fam-
ily ties to be supplemented by the fraternal bonds of friendship with all the opportunities implied by that association. Indeed, a legacy is
a gift to each of us and to the Fraternity, a gift which deserves extra care and attention."

—Ginger Banks, Past International President

Designed'Exclusivelyfor Alpha Omicron Pi

The Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation commissioned these
porcelain boxes to be designed by a family of master
craftsmen and artists in the town of Limoges in the south
of France. These boxes are exquisite heirlooms to be
cherished today and treasured for many years to come.

This oval box is handpainted in a beautiful combination
of red and gold and measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 1". On top
of the box is a bouquet of red roses encircled by a border
of gold wheat. The base features a border of red roses
alternating with gold wheat. The hinge is handfitted with
the signature Limoges bow clasp. Each box is hand-
signed by the artist.

Inside the box lid are Greek letters AOIl in gold with a miniature red rose and wheat painted inside the bottom.

The cost of the Limoge is S95.00 plus $3-50 for shipping and handling. Tennessee residents add sales tax. Send
