a message from our President
iirThe purpose of any organization should be to create prophets through praise!"
Praise is the most powerful tool available to people, but most do not use it often enough. Some people are afraid to praise, some are embarrassed by it, some can't
praise because they never learned how, others never received praise themselves. JYus begrudging attitude toward recognizing people's efforts impairs the potential performance ol an organi- zation. Many people prefer to use fear rather than praise. Fear can bring a quick burst of energy or a reluctant compliance,
but in the long run sows the seeds of defeat
We don't praise enough. It's almost as if there were a finite number of compliments in the world and if we gave one, there would be only Ibrty-three left We use them so sparingly! This behavior is caused by perpetuating some untruths about praise.
Myth 1. I'i'ifonnaiuv should IK perfect before anyone is allotved to celebrate. Perfection is a debilitating concept that many people have had drummed into them from an early age. There is always some room for improvement so point out the deficiencies. What a dreadfulwayto go through life! Stop looking for perfection and celebrate a really good showing.
Myth 2 . Praise is overrated.
That's what p»ple who don't give it say. Do you get more praise than you deserve? Neither do I. What we don't want, however, is begrudging praise. Too many people give praise reluctantly, which diminishes its impact
Because praise is the single most powerful tool at our disposal, use it more. To be more effective, praise should be given -
for any good performance;
Sincerely, not reluctantly;
• Soon after the event;
With a slight "positive" exaggeration;
• Sometimes in private, sometimes in public depending on the
nature of the performance;
As often as performance wan-ants it; and Sometimes imconditionally. just to show you care.
Tell your sisters you appreciate them, praise a chapter for a job well done, say "thank you" to a Network Specialist - remember "little things mean a lot"

HOW ISyOUr Chapter making a difference?
In this issue, our chapters present some of the countless ways they are making a difference. From sponsoring educational speakers, to tutoring chil- dren, to teaching aerobics to elderly arthritis sufferers; our chapters are reaching out in ways very personal and touching. We applaud dieir con- tinued efforts to let our light shine...
As a reminder to all collegiate chapter To Dragma Reporters, your To Dmgma annual report is due October 15. The report was included in your fall mailing and this is your opportu- nity to submit information for the the next four issues of the magazine.
Alpha Chi is making a differ- ence through the service we provide to the community of Bowling Green. Alpha Chi donates time to the success of the annual 10-K Run. die Heart Walk, Animals to the Elderly, and the Boy s Club in Bowling Green. The chapter is also active in numerous SGA organiza- tions on campus.

This year, Alpha Psi actively participated in the children's Miracle Network Dance Marathon. For the second year, the record for raising the most money was broken. We are proud that many of our sisters were involved in committees, along with five ladies who were on their feet for a full 32 hours. Everyone's spirits were high as the final hour concluded, and we found out that $102,000 was raised
The Alpha Theta Chapter paired up with the Phi Kappa Taus on campus and orga-
Illinois Wesleyan's Dean of Students, faculty members, and community policemen. The hall hour to hour sessions have been a way for faculty and students to interact on a more personal level and provide education- al and informative talks on a variety of top- ics from date rape to psychic readings.
U of Colorado
Our chapter has reached out to the Boulder community and Greek communi- ty to make a difference. Two of our sisters developed more Greek unity by creating an all-sorority acapella group. We have also had many members of our chapter on Panhellenic. We have also helped out the community by participating in the Boulder Creek clean-up and have received a sign on the creek for our efforts.

The sisters of Chi Lambda are making a difference on cam- pus. From presidents of orga- nizations to vocalists in concert choirs, AOITs are visible everywhere. One of the many ways our chapter makes a dif- ference is our diligence to phil- anthropy. Last September, we sponsored a donation-only car wash, which raised $430 for the AOn Foundation for Arthritis Research. Every February, we present our Alpha Ixwe Connection, simi-
A big issue lacing college women today is the battle against eating disorders. Our chapter has sponsored several informational seminars on c ampus discussing the topics of nutrition and eating disorders. I n a continu- ous effort to educate women, our chapter took the opportunity to support one of our own sisters as she spoke to a crowd of 2,000 about her personal struggles with an eating disorder. This program was a group effort brought about by several concerned sorority presidents. The event not only inf ormed young women about the problem, but also
nized a Teeter-totter-a-dion. We teeter-tot- tered for 24 hours straight Of course, the money raised was donated to Arthritis Research. Mpha Theta also adopted a two- mile stretch of highway and has highway clean-up twice a year.
Beta Lambda is making a difference right on our own campus. Once a month we sponsor a Brown Bag Luncheon, which fea- tures a guest speaker during the lunch hour. Everyone is invited to bring a sack lunch or just sit in. Past speakers have included
lar to MTV's "Singled Out." Also, sisters support our philanthropy with
bake sales, Rose BowL and other events.
Our chapter, like many chapters, has par- ticipated in many community service events including: the NSU canned food drive, Pennies for Pandas, and Stick-Up- for-Arthritis. But where Chi Theta has made a difference on the NSU campus is in attitude. Our members were awarded best sportsmanship during Greek Week even when the chapter had only been together a few weeks. Our spirit and

inspired you. We are also work- ing on having each sister per- form a required amount of com- munity service each month. We work with other Greeks on cam- pus, sponsoring events such as volleyball tournaments and Easter Egg hunts for children.
The Delta Psi Chapter is making a pro- found difference i n the Albany community by participating in a variety of community service events. We have cooked dinner for families residing i n the Ronald McDonald House, volunteered our time for the American Red Cross Rlood Drives, and began a penny drive to collect money for
the Arthritis Association.
The members of Delta Rho and Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity planned Child's Play 5K last May, a race benefitting charities such as Big Brother/Big Sister, Childrens' Advocacy, and Childrens" Memorial Hospital. We are expecting thousands of people and are having huge national sponsors. We are also expecting celebrities and politi- cal figures and have a goal of raising $50,000. After the race, we will hold a street fair with
Our chapter has started an Adopt-a- Grandma program that has been successful with sisters and nursing homes. Several sis- ters adopt a nursing home patient with arthritis and visit several times each quarter. AOFIs play games, do aerobics, a n d sing songs with the patients. This program really adds a bright spot to everyone's day.

serve residents lunch. We make a difference not only by serving nutritious meals but, also by talking with the residents. Once a month, we host an evening event These events provide residents with food, exercise and a chance to socialize.
One of the many ways that Epsilon Chi is making a difference is a new program implemented in the Spring of 1997. "Sober Sister" is our way of insuring the safety of our sisters. Every Thursday. Friday and Saturday nights, four sisters are assigned as sober sisters. Other members can reach them with one phone call to the chapter house. Alcohol awareness and Risk Management are a strong part of the chapter's education, but Sober Sister is helping to save lives.
Epsilon Omega plays a part in keeping the environment clean by participating in Adopt-a-Highway. And through our annual philanthropic event, AOn Lip Sync, we raise a great deal of money for Arthritis Research.
Our chapter is participating in a pro- gram called Best Buddies. It is a nation wide program that helps and encour- ages mildly retarded teenagers. Everyone who participates in the pro- gram is paired up with a student from Augustus Evans, and contacts them once a week to develop friendships.
Our chapter sponsors a Dance till Dawn philmthropy event each fall to raise money lor different onranizations. We invite all the fraternities and sororities to participate. This is a fun way to raise money because we liter- ally dance until dawn to raise the money.
We like to make a difference in our chapter by being involved with our philanthropy and our community. We all participated in a Stick-Up for Arthritis Research to raise money. We adopted-a-mile in Jacksonville that we clean at least twice a month. We also visit a local hospital to help cheer up patients. We spend a lot of time helping a local Brownie troop and select a needy child to enter in a beauty pageant. We take her shopping to get her new clothes and other neccesities.
Delta Omega is making
incorporating philanthropy into our every- day lives, rather than just once a year. This chapter sponsors "random acts of kind- ness" each week which include everything from smiling at complete strangers on cam- pus to writing a letter to someone who has
entertainment, games, and fun. This plans to be one of the largest philanthropy events of DePaul's history.
Delta Upsilon sisters enthusiastically host their annual back to the beach event for .Arthritis Research. The event is a campus- wide activity where student groups have fun competing in a three-legged race, limbo hula hoop, and sizzy bat The event increases Duke community interaction and is a suc- cessful way to support Arthritis Research. This year back to the beach raised more than ever — over $1,000.
Epsilon Chapter makes a difference in many ways. For the past several years, we have participated in the Foodnet Program at Titus Tower, an Ithaca low-income, elderly living center. Once a week, sisters

Iota has been making a difference on the U of Illinois campus through our philan- thropy, Run for the Roses. This event is a Champaign/Urbana Community event as well as a Greek community event We also donate pandas to the Champaign and Urbana police departments for domestic violence calls.
The Kappa Chi Chapter is maldng a differ- ence by pushing campus involvement as well as involvement in the sorority. With only three sororities on our campus, a lot tan be said at Greek events. We have had outstanding attendance lately. We also strive for diversity yet at the same time, unity. We have learned that working as a unit with diversity is 100% better than diversity with no unity. Our sisterhood is top notch because of these key things.
Each year, Kappa Kappa hosts "Basketball Marathon" for Ball State's campus and the surrounding community in order to raise money and recognition for AOEI and Arthritis Research. Highlights of this day- long event include teams playing 5 on 5, with each team getting to play at least twice, concessions, t-shirt sales, and special events such as the "Slam Dunk Contest." Basketball Marathon is an excellent way for the entire community to get involved in helping such a worthy cause. Other philan- thropies included canned-food drives and building for Habitat for Humanity.
The sisters of Kappa Rho are involved in a number of environmental and philanthropic programs. Kappa Rho believes strongly in giving back to the community and helping our environment The chapter participates in an adopt-a-highway program and a housing recycle program. The sisters of Kappa Rho give back to the community through dona- tions to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Toys for Tots. We also tutor underprivileged children, work red-cross blood drives, and volunteer at the YMCA
Kappa Sigma holds several philanthropic events. Our annual Walk lor the Roses raised about $250 for Arthritis Research. We are also sponsoring a teddy bear drive. The
stuffed animals collected were given to our local fire department to give to children who have lost their home to a lire, in order to ease their pain. In October, the chapter carved pumpkins with Alpha Gamma Rho and gave them to a local retirement home to brighten their holidays.
Kappa Tau Chapter has been working diligentiy to weave tradition and difference together. By keeping our scholarship standards high, as in the past we set high- er goals and have achieved them. Philanthropic events play a major role in our activities. We organize many events benefiting the campus, community, and AOITs own philanthropy. Through public relations and publicity, we keep the com- munity informed of Kappa Tau's many achievements and activities.
California Stat® U=Long m ieaeh £ Our chapter is known for helping
the little guys out Whether it is helping a new organization start
out on campus or helping a sorori- ty in a time of need, our chapter is the first house everyone comes to for help. We make a difference by showing everyone that it is great to help other people.
Our chapter is making a differ-
ence in our community by vol- unteering our time with Habitat

homes for those who are less fortunate. It really brings us close together and makes us feel good because we are helping peo- ple close to home.

Maldng a difference comes easy to Lambda Sigma. Sisters participated in over 100 iam- pus organizations and we give more than a helping hand to Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, blood drive, baby-sitting for the hear- ing impaired, and we participate in the phil- anthropic events of the other greek organi- zations. The 24-hour dance marathon ben- efitting the Childrens' Miracle Network is also always enthusiastically supported. Our two annual events for Arthritis Research are
the Kick-off Classic in the fall and Aerobathon in the spring.
Lambda Tau has many goals to enrich our community and our chapter. When you have 100% effortyour goals will make the differ- ence. Our biggest accomplishment was to have a new philanthropy project in the spring. We agreed on an idea and produced the project We enriched our community by donating proceeds to the area Ronald McDonald house and we made our chapter stronger because we had a common goal to accomplish. Making a difference great or small can change one persons file which can help change the world.
Three times every week, the Omegas put on an Aquatics program geared specifically toward people in the Oxford community who are suffering with arthritis. This is a low impact water aerobics class that meets
Omega Upsilon (Ohio U)
at Miami's Recreational Sports Center. During every class, one or more AOfls help those class members who need assis- tance in the water. Also, Omegas are mak- ing a difference among the Miami University faculty. In November, the chap- ter hosts an annual faculty appreciation open suite. Every month, the Omegas select a "Teacher of the Month" and present die winner with a certificate and an apple.
The members of Omega Omicron tutor our peers, listen to other sisters, donate an hour a week to lonely school children, and help beautify the community. We make a difference everyday.
Omega Upsilon is making a difference by going above and beyond. Our philan- thropies are not only on a national level but include our local and Greek communi- ties. For example, we sponsored a commu- nity service panda drive and with the help of our Greek brothers, supported the Pound Rescue for stray dogs. Omega Upsilon continues to set the pace of mak- ing a difference,a reality.
Rho Delta also holds an annual Bowl-a- Thon during the spring in which all of the sisters get sponsors to donate money accord- ing to how many points they score. Additionally, we sing Christmas and AOFI songs to the elderly during the holidays and volunteer at a local elementary school.
Rho Omicron has made a difference not only on campus but also throughout our community. We have had tons of commu- nity service with the MDA Run, the American Heart Walk, and our Smoke Arthritis Barbeque. We are very active on campus with having good scholarship, fund raisers, and many of our girls partici- pate in other social and academic organi- zations. AOFI has made a difference in helping others and maintaimng our well respected reputation at MTSU.
Our chapter has participated in several phil- anthropic activities, including beach clean- up and donations to the needy. We are also hosting a domestic violence seminar which will he open to the public to educate the community on this issue.
Arkansas State U
Sigma Omicron has been very active on and off campus. This year we held our sec- ond annual "Bull Jam" which is a rodeo to raise money for Arthritis. It proved to be very successful! We raised approximately $2,000 as compared to last years total of $ 1,700. All of the money that was raised went to local Arthritis organizations. Bull

Every spring, Omicron Chapter collects a panda from every member and donates them to the local police department The policemen carry the pandas in their patrol cars at all times. Officers distribute the bears arriving upon cases that involve chil- dren that have been through traumatic experiences . Used as a source of comfort, the bears allow the apprehensive children to open up and release significant informa- tion. The pandas not only help make a dif- ference in the community but provide great publicity for AOil.

A O n is trying to improve the Panhellenie System at ESU. We are hoping that this will increase the rush numbers for all Greeks and the public relations for Greeks on this campus.

The sisters of Pi Alpha are always ready to lend a helping hand. We strive to be the best women we can be whether it be collect- ing cans for Lambda Chi Alpha's food drive, participating in the Reindeer Romp for Arthritis, working events that are occurring in our community, or just lending an open ear to anyone who may desire. By having a strong sisterhood, we develop strong hearts and everyone on campus notices. As Ann Allison once told us, "Y ou girls are REAL." And that's what others need to see.

We are proud to say that we have a resident assistant, admissions ambassadors, peer advisors, tour guides, reporters for the all-Greek newspaper, and members of the Panhellenic Council among our members. We are also proud to have raised thousands of dollars this year for Arthritis Research and Sharing and Caring Hands, and worked for Habitat for Humanity.

Some of the ways that Tau Gamma is mak- ing a difference is by encouraging Panhellenic spirit and Greek pride. Also, we get involved in the community by volunteer- ing at the annual Haunted House for the local food bank and offering to shovel snow off the older community members drive- ways and sidewalks.
Tau Lambda participates in many service projects. We continued our Adopt-a- Highway program each month and held a car wash to raise money for a local boy suffering from Lukemia. We participated in a Walk-a-Thon for St. Jude's Research Hospital. We are also proud of our Designated Driver Program. On a rotat- ing basis, four sisters remain designated drivers one night a weekend. The chap- ter votes on whether we would like DD Fridays' or Saturdays'.
The sisters of Tau Omega are very proud of our philanthropic program. Each member volunteers - whether at a home for troubled teens, a nursing home, a tutoring center, or a crisis center. A O f l s
at Transy give blood to the Red Cross, give pan- das to hospitalized chil- dren, and give alu- minum cans for recy- cling. We recently orga- nized an "AOn in the Streets" day where members picked up trash along the streets of Lexington.

Recently at a chapter retreat, Theta Omega went into the community and picked up trash at a local park. Theta Omega is also very proud to co-sponsor the Flagstaff Jingle Bell Walk and Run for Arthritis, a community-wide event to help raise money for our philanthropy.
Theta Pi is making a difference by participa- tion in many areas which touch sisters lives. For example. Theta Pi will sell pink ribbons and wear them on campus to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness.
Zeta has been very influential in alcohol education/awareness at UNL. Our non- alcoholic functions have been widely rec- ognized on campus. Zeta has started to implement programs similar to "Our Chapter, Our Choice" into other Greek chapters on campus. As a result of efforts to educate the campus and com- munity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity chose Zeta to co-sponsor their annual alcohol education/awareness program "Do It Sober."
Zeta Pi places an emphasis on helping others not only through philanthropic events but also through many other com- munity service projects. We willingly donate our time in annual events spon- sored by the Kidney Foundation, an annu- al Aids Walk, and a yearly Jingle Bell Walk which benefits Arthritis Research. Sisters also volunteer numerous hours at the United Way sponsored Bread and Roses Shelter of Jefferson County. We make a difference by contributing to many worth- while organizations. Our goal is to make the big picture a whole lot brighter.
East Carolina U
Zeta Psi Chapter is making a real differ- ence on the campus of ECU. We are striving to get other Greeks to accept a non-alcoholic Greek-life. We have had many non-alcoholic social events at our chapter house that have been great suc- cesses. We are one of the first Greek organizations to do so and we feel we are paving the way to the liiture.

These efforts have included not only activities in which the entire chapter has participated, but also out- standing service on the part of individuals. In addition to hosting our own philan- thropies ( A O n Euchre Tournament and AOPie in Your Face), we hav e participated in various philanthropies sponsored by other campus and commum'tv organiza- tions. A O n has consistendy participated in DePauw Community Service, with 80% member involvement this vear. When DCS and other community service pro-
jects are considered, our participation approaches 100%.
Our chapter is making a difference by stress- ing to our members the four S's: scholar- ship, social, service and sisterhood. We stress these values and develop our members as they continue through college.
The women of Theta Omega have given more than 1,000 community service hours to the Flagstaff community by volunteering at the American Cancer Society, Flagstaff Family Food Center, the Battered Women's and Children's Shelter, Los Arcos Nursing Home and many other organizations.

Through the eyes of a blind child, at last I could see
The problem was not with the world; the problem was with me.
The park berth was deserted as I sat down to read Beneath the straggly branches of an old willow tree. Disillusioned by life with good reason to frown, For the world was intent on dragging me down. And if that weren't enough to ruin my day,
A young boy out of breath approached me, all tired from play. He stood right before me with his head tilted down
And said with great excitement,"Look what I found!"
In his hand was a flower, and what a pitiful sight, With its petals all worn - not enough rain, or too little light Wanting him to take his dead flower and go off and play, I faked a small smile and then shifted away.
But instead of retreating he sat next to my side And placed the flower to his nose
And declared with overacted surprise,
"It sure smells pretty and it's beautiful, too. That's why I picked it; it's for you."
The weed before me was dying or dead. Not vibrant of colors; orange, yellow or red.
But I knew I must take it or he might never leave.
So I reached for the Power, and replied,"just what I need."

Does Chip or Dale have the brown nose? If you guessed Chip, you were right - think "chocolate." Dale's nose is red. Other than that the two chipmunks are identical. Those details may not be important to a lot of people, but they are to many young visitors to Walt Disney World. When it comes to details, nobody does it like Disney.
So when an employee first goes to work for Disney, each attends a course entided Traditions. It's an orientation program that every new employee, or cast member as Disney prefers, com- plete from the Disney University at Walt Disney World ® Resort, Florida.
Kathy Doerr, Gamma Delta (U of South Alabama) is an Instructional Designer for the Disney University, responsible for developing training programs for cast members. Not to be confused with the Disney Institute which offers educa- tional programs for Walt Disney World ® Resort guests, the Disney University stricdy trains cast members.
Last July, "97, Kathy was assigned to work on an exciting new venture for the Disney Cruise Line. She was asked to design the safety training programs for the Disney Magic, the first cruise ship, which was scheduled to set sail this past March. The crew hiring phase was already under way.
The programs she designed featured alcohol and drug awareness, food safety, first responder. and bloodborne pathogens to name a few. She was to incorporate Disney culture and heritage into the training programs as well as prepare basic safety orientation training for the crew.
Six facilitators were interviewed and selected to travel to Italy, where the Disney Magic was being built, to lead the training programs. When one of the facilitators bowed out at the last minute due to a pregnancy, Kathy was called in as a replacement T"hough not a trained facilitator. Kathy was certainly familiar enough with the material to step in at the last minute.
For a married mother of two young children. Maggie, 6 years, and Nathan, 3 years, making this commitment was a difficult decision. She would be needed in Italy for 5-6 weeks. Kathy's
husband, David, along her parents and in-laws who all live in Orlando, offered a great deal of support to allow her to make this exciting trip. The added bonus - after the training, her husband and children would be flown to Italy to join her on the Magic's transadantic voyage to the United States.
On February 17, Kathy and five other facilitators left for the Fincantieri Shipyard in Maghera, Italy, just out- side Venice. Their home for the next several weeks would be aboard the Sardinia Regina and the Sardinia Nova ferry ships. Disney chartered both ships to house the crew and hold the training sessions while the Magic was nearing completion.
Unfortunately, due to shipyard delays, the Magic was behind schedule and would not make the original sailing dates as expected. With a thousand member crew already in place and the training programs set Disney proceeded with training, then gave the crew time off to return home to visit their families.
The original crew of the Disney Magic represents 41 different nationalities. "It was a great learning experience," says Kathy. "We were very aware of the diversity and looked at everything we did from a cultural perspective. I learned so much from the crew. It's been a real blessing. They taught me

the true meaning of listening."
To become a crew
member on the
Magic, fluent use of
the English language
was required yet many crew members speak more than one language. In fact, crew members wear language pins along with their name tags. These pins bear flags of the nations" whose lan- guage they speak.
After her training was completed. Kathy took a bench marking trip to Disneyland Paris, then returned to the states to begin developing a follow-up program, "Traditions II-Remember die Magic." This program was designed to rejuve- nate, refresh and review the crew after their break. In early June, Kathy and the other facilitators flew back to Italy for two weeks to lead this refresher course. Kathy returned to the states while the ship was nearing completion and being moved from Venice to Lisbon. Then on July 6, Kathy. her family, and approxi- mately 800 invited (juests and task force families, boarded the Magic in Lisbon, Portugal for the memorable 10-day transadantic voyage.
The passengers had the pleasure of checking out everything on board from food to activities to entertainment. Kathy"s final assignment was to design and lead a 'Train the Trainer" class lor the ship s Human Resource Team and selected trainers. With nearly every new sailing, new crew members wouid be coming on board and this program would be their orientation to the world of Disney. Business was certainly mixed with pleasure, so much of her time was free to enjoy the wonders of this magnificent new ship.
"It is a gorgeous ship - simply unbeliev- able!" Kathy exclaimed. "The colors and textures are vibrant and there are so many details. Nothing was over- looked. The children's area is fabulous and sale. The kids love it and so do the adults."" she added.

Dining is an adventure. Instead
of (lining in the same restaurant
each evening, guests rotate through three main dining rooms, keeping the same wait
staff and dinner mates. There's
Parrot Cay, a Caribbean themed restaurant featuring appropriate cuisine in a casual atmosphere.
The Animator's Palate is a cre-
ative environment that begins with the room designed in black and white. As you dine, colors and animation begin to emerge on the walls until the whole room is washed in color by the meal s end. The most elegant dining room is Lumiere's, featuring continental cuisine widi a French flair. On a three-night cruise, guests spend one evening in each of these dining rooms. On a four- night cruise, the fourth night is an entertaining Junkainoo Festival with a Bahamian theme.
While the guests aboard the Magic s transatlantic voyage split time between work and play, the crew was all business. Numerous safety maneuvers were per- formed, while food and beverage, culi- nary and the galley experienced valuable on-site experience.
When the ship arrived in Port Canaveral, the entire crew was given a 2-3 day vaca- tion in Orlando, and offered tickets to visit the Disney properties. As Kathy pointed o u t for many, this was their first visit to the Lnited States. While it was not required, many opted to experience the theme and/or water parks first hand.
"This was a wonderful opportunity for me," Kathy noted, "both the work experience and the chance to take an incredible 10-day cruise of this caliber.
I have several new design projects on the horizon, but it will be hard to match die incredible learning and life experiences I gained during my Disney Cruise Line adventure."
Kathy is excited that Orlando and Walt Disney W>rld will host AOITs conven- tion next summer. As an active member of die Orlando Alumnae Chapter. Kathy has just completed a two year term as president She has already signed on to work on the convention committee and is anxious to welcome AOITs to Orlando.
"I want to send a special thanks to the members of the Orlando Alumnae Chapter for being so supportive this past year,"' says Kathy. "Ironically, our March meeting was scheduled to be at my house. When I was sent at the last minute to Italy, they rallied to move it, then even held a meeting upon my return to hear all about my adventures.""
Now drat I"m home,"" says Kathy, " I can finally go see Titanic. Everyone I know has seen it. but I just couldn't bring myself to go until our transadantic cross- ing was completed."

AuNational Hero" By Malinda Sharp, Omicron (U offennessee)
All of us, as AOITs, have participated in Arthritis fund raisers, hoping that the money we raise would someday make a differ- ence. Clinical Research and therapeutic drug trials are two ways that this debilitating disease can be conquered, but one way that Arthritis is conquered is one patient at a time. Each patient can take control of her life, her treatment, her diet, and can make a difference. As the Arthritis Foundation's slogan says: "It's time we took Arthritis seriously."
The seriousness of this disease has become very personal to me as a result of a friendship that I formed while a pharmaceutical rep- resentative in the Atlanta area. An AOn sister of mine, Jody Blazer, Nu Omicron "94, introduced me to a nurse clinician in 1990, hoping tiiat this individual might assist me in selling my company's product line. Meeting Dorothy Leone-
Glasser, RN, MSN, changed my perspective about Arthritis, and our subsequent friendship led to her interest in die Georgia State AOil chapter.
I was the Chapter Adviser for Gamma Sigma when I
first got to know Dorothy. She assisted me with cre-
ative ideas for fund raisers, and was most appreciative
of the monies raised by our chapter's activities, know-
ing that our donations for Arthritis Research will someday lead to a cure. As a professional, I appreciated her rapport with physi- cians, and her willingness to assist me in meeting "key" cus- tomers. 1 had no idea that she was ill when I met her, nor was I ever aware, until she told me, that she battles Arthritis daily.
was employed. Today, she walks among her patients, aware first- hand of their complaints and concerns, sensitive to the needs and fears of those afflicted.
Today, almost 40 million Americans have been diagnosed with one of 200 types of Arthritis, many of those are children and women in their child-l)earing years. Dorothy has been able to work with area hospitals and medical professionals to educate the Atlanta commu- nity about Arthritis. In 1997, Dorothy assisted more than 100 patients in the area, teaching them how tofivewith their respective disease diagnosis through a holistic approach that streamlines well- ness for the body, mind and spirit 'Tm a registered nurse coun- selor teaching a coping program for chronically and terminally ill patients; the crux of my practice deafs with different forms of
Arthritis," Dorothy says. "A quick and proper diagnosis, B^^n and a comprehensive, "team-oriented" approach to ^Ll treatment can, from the start, give patients a better
chance to remain active and functional"
Dorothy is the consummate professional, an excellent speaker, and a community activist, workingtirelesslyto fund her programs and to draw attention to patients with Arthritis. As a board member of the Georgia Arthritis
Foundation, Dorothy has served in many capacities, and has been instrumental in gaining physician support for her holistic approach to healing. As a supporter of AOFTs efforts to raise money for Arthritis Research, she has assisted Gamma Sigma Chapter in the past Also, Dorothy introduced me to local Arthritis Executive Board members as the local AOFI Chapter Adviser, and personally invited our Alumnae Advisory Committee members to the annual

while she was still in Nursing School. When 1 was twenty, I was detenriining my major, actively participating in AOFI and cam- pus activities, and learning to live on my own as a college junior. Dorothy was learning to cope with a debilitating disease state that incapacitated her for days at a time. During her college years, her interest in chronic disease states increased as she lived with Arthritis, its effects, and its treatments. Her own illness led to a three-year internship focusing on treating patients with chronic illnesses.
At 40 years of age, Dorothy has lived with her illness for more than two decades, and has overcome the shutdown of her kidneys, an ensuing stroke and a subsequent heart attack—all stemming from her illness. She has survived being totally bedridden. Dorothy had to learn to function all over again. Then, after grad- uating to a wheelchair, she began using a walker, and eventuallv a cane, in order to get around the halls of the hospital where she
This year, in honor of the Arthritis Foundation's 50th Anniversary, 50 individuals were chosen as "National Heroes." Dorothv was one of those 50 individuals selected from throughout the United States. Chosen for her courage, her commitment, and her "Coping With Arthritis Program" that has improved the lives of her patients, Dorothy Leone-Glasser is a one-woman marching band, speaking out on behalf of her patients. Dorothy went to Washington, D.C. in May to speak before a session of Congress. Specialinterestsofhersareinsuranceissuesandfundingforwell- ness programs for chronically ill patients. As a result of her award and notoriety, several articles have appeared in the Atlanta news- papers about her, and she is currentiy working on a book lor a local publisher. When quizzed about her new status as a local celebrity, Dorothy laughs and says with a smile: "Being a health- care provider, as well as a patient, does not make me think of myself as a hero. This is what I do. My patients—those who I meet, get to know, and take care of—they are my heros."

Dorothy'sfriendshipand support, both personally and profession- ally, has impacted my life in a significant manner. It took quite some time for Dorothy to confess to me that she was ill, and my involvement in A0F1 was one of the reasons she felt led to share with me some of the issues Arthritic patients face daily. Fve seen Dorothy at her best, and at her worst Through each battle that she has waged, I have been an on-looker in the fight, unable to war against her demons in any tangible way. .As Dorothy faced each life-threatening situation, her personal faith and positive mental attitude changed the way those around her—me, included—reacted to her and to her illness.
Fd always known that what we do as AOFI collegians and alumnae in raising money for Arthritis Research is important. But when I met Dorothy, Arthritis suddenly became a face, a smile - a person. Certainly I'd known older people with Arthritis - my maternal grandmother for one, who complained of painful joints and inflam- mation—but Fd never met anyone who almost died as a result of the debilitating effects of Arthritis, especially someone who was a young woman, with her entire life ahead of her. Too often, I fear, we think of Arthritis as a disease that attacks the elderly. Not true!
I have always known that Dorothy is a hero; she didn't have to win an award for me to recognize that fact But I wanted to share her story with you, my AOFI sisters, who have worked tirelessly for so many years to be able to increase AOFFs annual donations lor Arthritis Research grants. To date, AOFI has given over one mil-
lion dollars, and in recent years, there have been many advances made in treatments, and in understanding this disease at the cellu- lar level. New medications scheduled to be approved by the FDA this year will be far reaching, allowing physicians to aggressively attack .Arthritis. Many experts believe that we are on the brink of discovering additional new, significant things about Arthritis that may, hopefully, eradicate this disease in Dorothy's lifetime. As a pharmaceutical representative, I am excited about the milestones attained through research and drug trials. As an AOn. I am excit- ed about the fact that AOFI has had a big part in easing the pain and suffering for countless millions of women. There is no doubt that advances have been made because of the research we have supported as an organization.
Arthritis is one killer that can be stopped. With additional dollars going towards finding a cure, our contributions towards finding a cure, our contributions towards the study and exploration of this disease are making a difference! Thank you, AOFI for giving of your time and talents, and for the attention that you generate each year though your fund raisers and local programs. And, thank you, Dorothy, for being my hero, and for teaching me about bravery and compassion.
Dorothy adds this post-script " I say to you AOFIs, keep up the good work, and keep those research dollars rolling in!" Because of Dorothy, Fm taking Arthritis very seriously, and I hope all of you will, as well. Happy fund raising!

Guide f o r Success
The Foundation Board is currently involved in the strategic planning process. For the past six months data was collected through surveys, listening sessions and telephone interviews. Board members reviewed the results and developed a new strategic plan. The plan focuses on the following Foundation strategic directions:
• Increase financial assets
• Expand the scope of our philanthropy
• Develop comprehensive marketing plan
• Build stronger partnership with Fraternity
The Foundation Board and Staff will work to prioritize and implement the action plans. A special thank you to sisters who participated and helped the Foundation in this important planning for AOITs future.

"I am writing a note of thanks to all the Aon chapters for their dedication to our philanthropy. You see, two
years ago I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It kind of amazes me when I look back and realize that, when I was in college and attending all ourfund raisers, it never occurred to me that I might be the one who needed that research we were helping fund! So, a special word of thanks to everyone in AOn for all the hard work and dedication to Arthritis Research from a sister who has been deeply affected

LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE 1998
Leadership Institute was held last June in Nashville with over 750 col- legians and alumnae in attendance. Themed "Celebrating AOFI...A Lifetime Journey," the event was designed to challenge individuals to attain leadership skills and knowl- edge for a lifetime of personal and professional development A special emphasis this year on Ritual placed awareness on how we can better use Ritual in our daily lives and within our chapters.
Through specific programming, participants were instructed how to function more effectively within the AOn community, especially by fostering relationships between network specialists and chapters and by empowering members to become effective volunteers.
To Dragma/FALL 1998
"Thank you foryet another wonderful AOfJ memory."
Participants were encouraged not to get lost in the excitement and flow of inlormation through the devel- opment of a simple program called "Take It With You". Following each speaker and breakout session, attendees completed a worksheet to record the ideas and suggestions they wished to take back to their chapter, and the ways those ideas could be utilized.
Additionally, at the end of the weekend, each participant was asked to write a personal letter to their chapter. These letters were intended to highlight the LI experi- ence and to share the moment with other members back home who did not have the opportunity to attend. The letters were collected and later mailed to the chapter to be read during an upcoming meeting.

"Tlianksfor the emphasis on Ritual'
Four inspiring Keynote addresses were delivered during the week- end. The first session was pre- sented by Past International Presidents Ginger Banks and Joan MaeCallum on "Ritual the Rite Way.'" This interactive session was designed to help members feel more comfortable with Ritual. AOn Fraternity Development Committee Chairman, Marsha Guenzler, spoke on bringing Ritual to life in her motivating address, "Letting Our Light Shine." We were fortunate to have two non- AOn guest speakers, the first being Maureen Syring, a Delta Gamma and member of the NPC Executive Committee. Maureen's enthusiastic presentation was enti- tled "Ya Gottas for Success in AOn." Last, but not least, we heard "Our Lives as AOEls" from
Michael Brenner, Senior Training Consultant with Pegasystems, Inc. and a former AOIT House Director for Alpha Psi, (Bowling Green State U). Michael's unique per- spective of AOIT was both enlight- ening and entertaining.

As part of our Leadership Institute activities, AOIl donated nearly 500 stuffed pandas to the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home, My Sister's House and Community Child Care Center in Williamson County, Tennessee. It has become an AOFI tradition to honor our host city each year with gifts to organizations in the conference area that work specifically with children. Kim Burke with the Tennessee Baptist Children's Home was on hand to personally accept the gift from AOFI President Linda Collier.

While emphasis was not placed on awards, numerous awards were rec- ognized, including Chapter, AAC and Corporation Performance Awards. Additionally, each network presented Innovations in Pro- gramming Awards for outstanding achievement in specific areas relat- ing to each network such as Ritual, Scholarship, Rush, Finance and Membership Education.
The A O n Foundation presented several awards recognizing chapters for outstanding contributions, and announced two Arthritis Research Grants totaling $30,000 to Dr. Sharon Danoff-Burg. PhD., CUNY, New York; and Dr. Marianna Newkirk, PhD., McGffl U, Montreal Quebec.

On Saturday evening, Past International President and Perry Award Committee Chairman, Joan MacCallum. presented the Perry Award to Crystal Grafton, INu Beta (U of Mississippi). The Perry Award is the highest distinction given to a collegiate member of Alpha Omicron Pi. Stella George Stern Perry was not only the first President of AOIX but the first President of Alpha Chapter, as welL It is appropriate that tliis award honors her and is pre- sented each year to the one collegiate president who by out- standing service to her chapter, exceptional inspiration to its members and recognitionby administration and/or follow students of her college or university, typifies the Alpha Omicron Pi so beloved by Stella.
As Joan stated, "This chapter President always gives of herself in a never-ending fashion to whatever she has made a com- mitment to and inspires others around her to do the same. She has an uncanny ability to create energy all around her. She is described as having the heart of charity of Jessie, the goal-orient- ed aspirations of Helen, the passion and intensity for what she believes of Stella, and the understanding and compassion of Elizabeth." Her chapter advis- er wrote, "Being around her sparks an interest to do things that have not been done before and to accomplish more than has been accomplished in the past" Visionary, confident, inge- nious, kind, compassionate, gen- uine, and gracious are a few of the words which her chapter sis- ters have used to describe her.
Alpha Omicron Pi is proud to award the 1998 Perry Award to Crystal Grafton.

Lisa Hauser serves as Chairman of the HRC and also looks for volunteers for the Alumnae Network. She is seeking women with the stability and insight to work with our alumnae chapters.
Your writer has been privileged to look for volunteers for the Rush Network.
We want to identify sisters who are vitally interested in the growth of AOn. We need volunteers who were excited and enthusiastic about rush during their collegiate years and want to share their enthusiasm with our collegiate chapters today.
Louanne Condreay looks lor alumnae with the leadership skills and innova- tion to work with our Programming Network. This is a new idea for AOn. Many of these volunteers served in
the past as Regional Directors and they tend to be problem solvers.
Sue Placke seeks volunteers who have the expertise to work with the Corporation and Finance Networks. Our chapters benefit by the strong knowledge and guidance given them by these volunteers. Jan Slagowski targets volunteers with the leadership skills to work with the Alumnae Advisory Committee Network. Once
again, this is a new concept within AOn. We want to provide our Alumnae Advisors who work with our collegiate chapters the very best insight possible.
Why do we work so hard on this Committee? We want to give back the love we have received in AOFI. We are always in search of sisters to share theirloveofAOn. Soifyouhavenot filled out an Application for Volunteer Service, why not do so today? It is the best way to share with others the unique gifts you have been given.

Three \ears ago at tlie International Convention, the Human Resources Committee (HRC) was established
by Council. Many times we hear the following question, "What is this new Committee (HRC) and what is its function?"
The Human Resources Committee was set up to take the place of the International Nominations Committee. HRC members are appointed by the Executive Board after reviewing applications of inter- ested members of Alpha Omicron Pi. The Executive Board is seeking lair- minded members with a strong knowledge of past volunteers.
HRC members are charged with the responsibility of naming the Slate of Officers for both the Executive Board and the Foundation Board to be voted upon by the members of Council attending International Convention in each odd-numbered year. For the Slate of Officers, each member of the HRC must study every single sugges- tion or nomination submitted for each office by not only members of Council but also by any interested member of Alpha Omicron Pi who wants to sug- gest an A O n sister for office. This involves studying literally hundreds of nominations. Next the HRC members travel to International Headquarters to consider all candidates suggested for nomination. This process lasts for sev- eral days. During this meeting at International Headquarters, it is criti- cally important to the entire process that we listen to the needs and voices of our sisters throughout our interna- tional membership.
The members of HRC must be able, throughout the year, to study applica-
tions for service which are forwarded
