"Will A O n rust in the weather?"

Recently, I attended the M I F C A - M A P C A Greek Conference in Chicago, Illinois.
Approximately 1400 members of the Greek world - Interfraternity Council and Panhel
lenic Council representatives, Greek advisers, and national/international fraternity and
sorority representatives, listened to pertinent and challenging sessions and participated
in "pathways" associated with our areas o f involvement or special interest.

One workshop, led by Jeffrey B. Cufaude, N I C Executive Director, provided a fascinating look at our fraternal organizations
through a study in contrasts. W e were asked first to list all the assumptions we could think o f about how machines operate or
characteristics o f machines in general. Then we were asked to list all the assumptions we make about how weather operates
and about weather in general. Machine words included: exact, dependable, efficient, precise, keep running i f you take care
o f them, unresponsive to fits o f temper, etc. Weather words included: independent, uncontrollable, spontaneous, challeng-
ing, random, controlling actions and plans, happens anyway, changes quickly.

W h i c h one fits our days? Which one fits our organization?

O u r organization's truths are based on machine-like qualities. We pride ourselves on having procedures that are exact and
exactly correct. Our processes are dependable, there are precise definitions and expectations for behavior. W e strive for effi-
ciency in the movement o f paper and projects. Certainly, we have confidence that everything will keep on running i f we take
care o f it.

However, the environment in which our chapters and members exist is filled with spontaneity, saturated daily with situations
beyond its control, constantly challenged f r o m within and without. I t is an environment that changes f r o m day to day, and
keeps on happening regardless o f forecasts.

Are we trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Can we teach our chapters effectively when their environment is so dif-
ferent from their organizational structure? H o w should our carefully defined and controlled fraternity work in an
uncontrollable environment?

Margaret J. Wheatley in "Leadership and the New Science" states that adaptive organizations and organizations centered
around core competencies (basic principles) "avoid rigid or permanent structures and instead develop a capacity to respond
with great flexibility to external and internal changes. Expertise, tasks, teams, and projects emerge in response to a need.
When the need changes, so does the organizational structure."

We need to be flexible. We must listen to weather watches and warnings and be in tune with what's going on in our rapidly
changing environment. We must take time to communicate. Then we need to assess and reassess. Cycles must be considered
- the time o f the year and the correct method o f intervention for the situation. We must utilize our resources. Above all, we
need to be pro-active. We must have a plan and then we must have another plan.

We must empower people. Teamwork is essential. A n d we must build relationships. The power in an organization is the
capacity generated by relationships.

In "The Fifth Discipline" Peter Senge writes: "Just as personal visions are pictures or images that people carry in their heads
and hearts, so too are shared visions pictures that people throughout an organization carry. They create a sense o f commonal-
ity that permeates the organization and gives coherence to diverse activities."

Let's be sure that A O n endures the weather o f the 21st Century with the steadfastness o f common visions and the dynamic
commitment from every fact.

Reach O u t with Fraternal Love,

Mary McCammon Williams
International President

The Big Picture
By Mary McCammon Williams,
Who Has the Big Picture! International President, Phi, (Un. of Kansas)

This question is often asked regarding the new structure proposed for AOFI: Who has the big picture? Three pictures are needed to complete the
big picture, the whole picture of AOIT. The first, for a collegiate chapter, is the complete picture of the chapter which is provided by the AAC for
themselves and for the specialist team that supports the chapter. The second is a picture of an alumnae or collegiate chapter provided by the special-
ist team for themselves, the network directors and the standing committee chairmen. The third, the complete picture of the Fraternity - of all the
chapters - is provided by the network directors and the standing committee chairmen for themselves and the Executive Board.

The Complete Picture of the Chapter...

Historically, strong and healthy collegiate chapters have knowledgeable, consistent support from local alumnae. The ultimate responsibility for
the successful operation of a collegiate chapter rests with the Alumnae Advisory Committee. Empowering the AAC with the responsibility for
the whole picture of the collegiate chapter and providing it with education to understand the chapters needs is a primary goal in the new struc-
ture proposal.

To understand how the AAC will be effective in assessing the whole picture of the collegiate chapter, an understanding of the concept of the AAC
team and its support system is essential. The team concept in advising best supports the goal stated in the previous paragraph. The team concept
in advising is not new. It has existed in A O I I for a number of years, its success measured. Some AACs embraced the concept, understood the
relationship between the individual advisers and the entire committee and functioned appropriately. Too many AACs, some through no fault of
their own, never adopted the team concept. Many advisers continued the "lone ranger" syndrome in advising - all the responsibility falling on
one or two alumnae, year after year. Busy advisers had and have a difficult time finding help. While collegiate chapters are expected to help in
the recruitment arena, they have mixed success, due to many reasons. Outside efforts in recruiting are at best sporadic. Some areas have few
alumnae volunteers available.

The new structure plan will put in place two very important facets. First, a department (the AAC Network) will be established, dedicated to the
recruitment and training, as well as ongoing supervision of AACs. Second, a team o f specialists (AAC, Rush, Programming, Finance and
Corporations) will be appointed, dedicated to training and support of the individual advisers on the AAC.

In the present system, the concentration of efforts has centered around direct interaction with the collegiate chapter officers and members. While
the Regional Director and regional officers (rush, finance, and public relations) have the charge to support the advisers, the bulk of the support,
generally, has been directed to the collegiate chapter itself. Collegiate membership changes very quickly and long-term optimum operations are
difficult to achieve. Many a regional officer has lamented the fact that the workshop given last year is lost to the present class.

The AAC is the stable entity within a collegiate chapter environment. As a local support system, it is in a position to have knowledge of every
aspect of the collegiate chapter. The need to have an intense system of support for the AACs, as individual advisers and as functioning teams is
primary to creating and maintaining well-educated, effective advisory committees, on-site and capable of immediate reaction to any collegiate
chapter need. The resulting AAC will have the knowledge and the confidence to define the qualifications for good health, the whole picture, for
ever-changing collegiate chapters.

The Complete Picture of the Chapter at a Distance...

The second complete picture o f the collegiate chapter and the whole picture of an alumnae chapter come from the network specialists assigned
to those chapters. Based on the evaluations of the AAC, performance reports from the collegiate chapter itself, as well as through inter-team
communication channels, the team of specialists assigned to the collegiate chapter will be able to analyze the condition of a collegiate chapter
and provide a total picture o f that chapter. Each chapter will be evaluated by a basic set of criteria, without comparison to other chapters.
Because of the nature of the network system, comparison of chapters in specified geographic areas will not occur as it does in the current
regional system. The specialist teams will have some variation in assignments due to numbers, and the tendency to compare one chapter with
another will not be possible since the five specialists in the team will not have all the same chapters.

1 0 To Dragma

Secondly, the specialist team members will have direct contact with each other and interaction between the various areas will be instantaneous
and equal. The current regionally defined structure funnels most information through the Regional Director to the Regional Vice President or
to the "regional specialists" such as the finance officer, rush officer and public relations officer. In many cases the information from the RFO,
RRO and RPRO never gets fully integrated into the chapter picture until it reaches the RVR The perception of the RD as the one person hav-
ing the total picture of the chapter is often inaccurate. Matters of rush andfinance,especially, are frequently isolated with those regional spe-

The design of the specialist team, its function within the Fraternity, and its communications patterns insure an equally balanced and total
picture of the chapter by all the members of the team.

The Alumnae Network Specialist provides the whole picture of the alumnae chapter, which is similar to the current practice with the Alumnae
Regional Directors. The Alumnae Network Specialist becomes an integral part of the specialist team working with a collegiate chapter when
she is assigned to an alumnae chapter in the same area as a collegiate chapter. The team then can address the whole picture of an area which
includes collegiate and alumnae activity.

The Complete Picture of the Fraternity...

Though the Fraternity has grown in numbers of chapters and members across the United States and Canada, the perception of distance
between chapters and members has diminished. Technological advances in mass communication and media coverage have brought east, west,
north and south closer together and the amtainment of trends within certain geographic areas, or the slow movement of trends from area to
area, no longer exists in any great measure. Fraternity leaders must quickly analyze emerging trends in the college atmosphere, the needs of
women in general and societal and governmental attitudes. In order to be effective for our membership, AOIT must be "on top" of all the hot
issues all of the time. AOTI International must have a current "big picture" of the condition of all its chapters and likewise of the condition of
the colleges and universities and their student, administrative and faculty attitudes.

This responsibility belongs to the eight women who serve on the Executive Board. While an information system exists through the volunteers
and the Headquarters Staff, the current strucrure of AOI1 does not allow a great number of leaders access to the data in a timely fashion to pro-
vide analysis and suggestions to the Executive Board. The proposed structure establishes a broader international system. All the network direc-
tors and standing committee chairmen receive complete reportsfromthe specialists, committees and other resource people. They have the
opportunity to evaluate chapters and identify needs and trends based on the complete picture of the chapters.

The present system has many women who have a complete picture of the Fraternity, but only in one area. The International Scholarship
Chairman knows the scholarship picture throughout the Fraternity, likewise the International Rush Chairman know rush throughout, but they
are not aware of each others picture. Other current standing committees are even more isolated, such as Rituals, Traditions and Jewelry -
which rarely has access to information about the whole Fraternity until general reports are published. In order for each of the standing com-
mittees to be truly effective, they must have access to documentation about how their particular portion of responsibility relates to other areas
and conditions within the chapters.

The same is true for the networks. The eight network directors will be involved in the lateral communication process and have, at any time,
information available on every aspect of all the chapters' operations.

The proposed structure establishes this relationship. A team of 17 Fraternity leaders will be involved in the appraisal and creative processes for
the needs of the Fraternity.

Finally, and a very important aspect of the new structure plan will be the support that this advisory group will give to the Executive Board.
Along with regular cxunmunication will be the opportunity for a yearly general meeting to verbalize current conditions within the fraternity
world and to address future plans. While thefinalapproval for plans continues as the responsibility of the Executive Board, the expertise and
input of the Network Directors and Standing Committee Chairmen will benefit the Fraternity gready. And in reality, 25 women, rather than 8
women will have the "big picture" of the Fraternity.

Each set of teams in the new structure - the alumnae advisory committee, the specialists, die networks and committees and the Executive Board
will be charged with the maintenance of the whole chapter, the whole Fraternity. The complete picture of each chapter and of the Fraternity
will be addressed by several groups of knowledgeable women and will expand AOITs ability to reach out to its members - to provide sisterhood
for a lifetime, promote academic excellence, enhance personal and leadership development and encourage fraternity and community service.

An individual's choice,

This is a story o f three A O I 1 sisters— Sally,
Jessica and Mary. Two of them met during rush at
Big State University as Freshmen. Sally, a petite
blonde, was from a very small rural community. Jessica, a basket-
ball playing redhead, was from Dallas. Although they were from very
different places, they became best friends. They were so excited when
both pledged AOIJ. They knew they would be "sisters forever." They
were part of the first New Member Class at their chapter to use BRIDGES
and both got involved right away. They loved their chapter, they loved their
sisters, and they loved AOIX As time went on they both became very active
in their chapter working on committees and being elected to chapter offices.
Then, Mary, the thitd AOFI in our story transferred to their campus from
another chapter. They met at the Student Activities office where Jessica was a
work-study. Mary had come in to get a list o f registered student organizations and
was wearing an AOFI sweatshirt. She asked i f there was an AC O chapter on cam-
pus. Jessica was so excited to meet her, that she called Sally to come escort Mary to
the AOFI house.
Sally and Mary walked to the chapter house and talked about their experiences as AOFIs.
When they got to the chapter house, Sally took Mary inside and introduced her to everyone
who was thete. When Mary said that she was transferring, they told her theyd love to have her
become a part of their chapter. Lisa, the chapter president, urged Mary to have her chapter presi-
dent fill out an Affiliation Form right away. Jane, one o f the other members, even offered to
have Mary move in with her since her roommate was graduating. Lisa said she would talk to
their Corporation and have them send Mary a housing contract as soon as she received
Marys Affiliation Form.
Mary returned to her chapter and talked with her chapter president, Alice,
about the transfer. Since no one had transferred in or out since Alice had become pres-
ident, they had to look up the procedure in the Governing Documents. Alice com-
pleted the Affiliation Form and forwarded it to Mary's new chapter. She asked Mary
to talk to the chapter before she left to help everyone understand that their sisterhood extended
beyond their own chapter.
Mary transferred to Big State University and she, Sally and Jessica became best friends.
They loved their chapter, they loved their sisters, and they loved AOFI.
Then came the hardest decision o f Sally's life — changing her major. She really wanted to
be a journalist, but the university didn't offer the necessary programs for that degree. She was
certainly going to miss her chapter and friends, but knew she was making the right decision for her
future. Besides, State University, where she had just been accepted, had an AOFI chapter also.
Her first day at State University, Sally visited with her counselor then walked to the building housing the
sorority suites. She knocked on the AOn doot, and when she didn't get an answer, she started to leave. Just
