"What a pleasure it was for me
interaction with these young women as we worked together
Two visions came to fruition during the weekend of March 2-4, 2001, as Alpha Omicron Pi's first Leadership Academy was held in our new International Headquarters located at 5390 Virginia Way in Brentwood, Tennessee.
The first vision was to build an International Headquarters better equipped to facilitate personal devel- opment and leadership training. The second vision was to offer specialized training to our collegiate chapter offi- cers soon after their election. The coming together of these visions enabled alumnae members to play a central role in guiding our younger leaders. The collegians, on the other hand, were able to learn from the experiences of those who have gone before them.
Providing opportunities to genera- tions of young women is the com- mitment your Fraternity leaders, both past and present, have made to AOII's future.
Eighty-four collegiate chapter pres- idents traveled from across the United States and Canada to attend Leadership Academy. They had the distinction of being the first group to utilize our beautiful new home for training.
What a pleasure it was for me to have one on one interaction with these young women as we worked together to become stronger leaders. Thanks to the efforts of the Education and Training Committee,
the energy and excitement were tremendous and our inaugural Leadership Academy was a success.
The training was partially funded through a grant from the AOII Foundation. This is just one of many examples where the dollars you have contributed to the Foundation Annual Fund have once again sup- ported our collegiate members.
My travels during the past 18 months have taken me to chapter installations, anniversary celebra- tions, Founders' Day gatherings, and meetings with Fraternity lead- ers, just to name a few. The ideals and principles that we share have been very evident. AOIIs are com- mitted to building lifelong friend- ships, developing leadership skills, encouraging teamwork and collab- oration, and striving for excellence on all levels. We will build upon those values as we continue to pro- vide the tools necessary for success.
I look forward to seeing you this summer in Palm Desert, California, as we gather for Convention 2001 and celebrate the Ultimate Sisterhood Experience.

for the International Headquarters Rose Garden
The inner meaning of the Jacqueminot Rose is "I am true".
Hie fabled General Jacqueminot Rose was named after Viscount Jean Francois Jacqueminot whofoughtwith Napoleon at Waterloo. Also called the Jack Rose, it is the greatest parent rose ever known, used to hybridize over 500 varieties still grown today. Celebrated in song and story, this rose was indeed a worthy choice as the AOII Fraternity flower.
To honor of the dedication of the new International Headquarters and the upcoming Foundation Silver Anniversary, AOII Foundation is installing a General Jacqueminot Rose Garden at HQ.
The Jacqueminot Rose Garden will complement and border the Founders' Circle, Brick Walkway and Garden of Memories, adding color, luxurious warmth and a unique AOII feeling to the landscap- ing of our new headquarters.

AOII officially moved into our new International Headquarters on Tuesday, February 26, 2001 with the help of 10 professional movers and a dedicated staff of employees. Formerly located at 9025 Overlook Blvd (above), the Fraternity set up business in our new location at 5390 Virginia Way, (below) Brentwood, Tennessee. Four truck- loads of furniture, computers, files, and boxes were relocated and sorted upon arrival. The first official visitors to our new home were our collegiate chapter presidents who arrived four days later for AOII's first Leadership Academy.

AOII's firstLeadership Academy
What happens when you put all of AOII's
istration, alumnae, and by AOII interna- tional personnel to answer questions about the chapter and to be accountable for the actions of her chapter and its members. The office of president is a tough one — but as those alumnae, who served their chap- ters as the president can attest, it is one of the most rewarding experiences an AOII member can ever have.
Just ask Jennifer Amick, chapter president lor Sigma Alpha Chaprter (West Virginia U.). Jennifer is beginning her second term as president for her chapter. When asked during the weekend the basic question by her peers "why?" she wanted to hold the position of president again, Jennifer replied, "The reason I wanted to run for chapter president for another term is because there are so many things I still want to do for AOII and a second term in office will give our Leader's Council the chance to achieve all that we hope for."
Our young women serving as presidents have so much responsibility ~ why not bring them together to lay the groundwork for a successful year? Several MPC and NIC organizations have been taking this approach to training their chapter leaders for years. Why not follow a successful model and begin our own tradition of training and educating the future of AOII? That's how the initial idea for Leadership Academy was born.
Throughout the three-day academy, the presidents listened to, asked many ques- tions of, and learned from six AOII "experts" and from each other. In addition to Dr. Ebert, the following AOII alumnae were on hand: Carole Jones, International President; Julie Brining, Executive Board Director of Programming; Pam Pieriotti, Education and Training Committee mem- ber; Susan Bonifield, Chairman of the new Programming Committee; and Karen
new collegiate chapter presidents and six energized facilitators together in one room? Fun... leadership ideas... and sharing erupt! That was the scene at AOII's first Leadership Academy held March 2-4, 2001 for our collegiate presidents.
Presidents from across the USA and Canada met at our new headquarters facili- ty in Brentwood,TN for a weekend of learning and leadership development. Several presidents even began their spring breaks by coming in for the academy - what dedication!
What is Leadership Academy? Dr. Lori Hart Ebert, Chairman of the Education and Training Committee explains it this way, " I remember when I was elected a chapter president many years ago. I did not feel prepared to lead from an AOII standpoint. I had so many questions and did not know how to get answers. Leadership Academy was created by the Education and Training Committee and funded by a grant through the AOII Foundation so chapter presidents can come into office without feeling the way I did. It is a unique opportunity for them to get the necessary information and resources and hit the ground running in their office. It is an avenue for AOII to educate, train, and create a peer network for our collegiate leaders. And, ultimately, it is about AOII raising the bar and creating a higher standard for our chapter presi- dents and collegiate chapters. Expect to see great things from these chapter presidents this year!"
A collegiate member coming on the scene in such a visible office as chapter president is often viewed as the "glue" of the chapter. She is the person everyone looks to for interpretation of AOII policies, procedures, and resolution of chapter issues. She is called on by her college/university admin-

Towell, member of the RT& J Committee. Grace Day, Assistant Director of the AOII Foundation, also spoke to the presidents about teaching chapter members early on about giving back to the fraternity and about the foundation's scholarship pro- gram. Each facilitator presented learning and sharing sessions on topics such as: pro- ject and personnel management, budget- ing, goal setting (both for officers and for the chapter), preparing for business sessions at International Convention, dealing with risk management issues, identifying risky behaviors, conflict resolution and manage-
Delta Sigma chapter (San Jose State U.) said of her experience, "It was great to talk to other [presidents] and realize that we all face challenges no matter how big our chapter is or where we are located." Another president shared, "[Leadership Academy] made me realize that there is so much more I can do with my chapter. At first I felt like I couldn't do much after my amazing past president, but I'm going home with so many ideas!"
Getting prepared to face those challenges that lie ahead and to help our officers do the best job possible —that is the goal of Leadership Academy. With the first Leadership Academy for collegiate presi- dents under our belts, we are pleased to announce that AOII will sponsor three more Leadership Academies in the 2001- 02 academic year. Each academy will be held at AOII headquarters and will be focused on three different offices. The last weekend each February will be reserved for collegiate presidents. The locus offices for the two additional Leadership Academies will be announced at International Convention in June.

Sharing, educating, bonding, and laughing... that is Leadership
ment, and values based leadership ideas. What an agenda! During the weekend of whirlwind training, the presidents also bonded and forged friendships. Now, when they attend International Convention in Desert Springs, CA this summer, they will see familiar faces and they will be bet- ter prepared for the business sessions.
One of the realizations of the weekend for the presidents was that all chapters share in their challenges on some level. Even bet- ter, they learned through the presentations and sharing that there are always workable solutions to those little problems they often face each day. Kera Hopper, president of

NPC's 2000 Interim
Delegates, Presidents, Executive Directors and Editors of the 26 mem- bers of the National Panhellenic Conference gathered at the DFW Lakes Hilton Executive Conference Center in Grapevine, TX, October 20 - 22 for the 2000 Interim Meeting. Representing Alpha Omicron Pi were: Peg Kramer Crawford, NPC Delegate; Mary McCammon Williams, 1st Alternate; Robin Mansfield Wright, 2nd Alternate; Linda Peters Collier, 3rd Alternate; and Carole Jurenko Jones, AOII International President. Also attending were Melanie Nixon Doyle, Executive Director; Julie Brining, Executive Board Director; Barbara Daugs Hunt, NPC Foundation Board; and Mariellen Perkinson Sasseen, Editor, To Dragma.
NPC Chairman Marion Williams, Kappa Kappa Gamma, opened the meeting with the theme remarks, Leading the Way, Sharing the Vision. Noting the continued con- cern on campuses of the misuse and abuse of alcohol, Marion stressed that the time has come for new ini- tiatives requiring NPC's vision, lead- ership and courage to create change
in the culture on the college cam- pus. Citing the statement of one noted vice president of student affairs, "It makes me ask if there is any hope for the Greek system or will they con- tinue to self-destruct," Marion chal- lenged all fraternity and sorority mem- bers to use the vision, the ability to communicate and collaborate and the leadership to address the concerns and help accomplish needed change.
In closing, we were reminded that NPC is now in its 98th year and eagerly anticipating its Centennial celebration in 2002, As Marion said, "NPC is not
great because she is old; she is old because she is great ... a legacy earned which has been time honored and for which each of us is responsible."
In addition to regular committee meet- ings and separate sessions for Presidents, Executive Directors and Editors, special sessions were held to hear reports of the Women & Girls, Tobacco & Lung Cancer and College Women & Depression Programs, and of the long range plan- ning committee. For delegates with chapters on specific campuses, campus and housing meetings were held to dis- cuss critical issues and determine cours- es of action to improve situations.
Other legal issues discussed included preserving the single sex status of NPC organizations. Tide FX of the Education Act, prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex does "not apply to member- ship practices...of a social fraternity or social sorority..., the active membership of which consists primarily of students in attendance at an institution of higher education."
An Alcohol-Free Housing Initiative update was given by a panel composed of Lissa Bradford, Co-chairman Alcohol
Free Task Force; Tim Burke, NPC Legal Counsel; Marilyn Fordham, Alcohol-Free Task Force; Erika London, Panhellenic President, Penn State University; and Beth Stathos, Assistant Director for Student Life, University of Oklahoma. Although not yet universal, many positive steps are being taken on campuses around the country to change the perceived alcohol-centered culture. More and more Panhellenic women are step- ping forward to take responsibility for addressing substance abuse. Women are the key to making the necessary changes; and when joined together in
a Panhellenic, they represent the largest organization of women on most campus- es. Beth Statos stressed the need for more education of all collegiate mem- bers toward the goal of greater under- standing of both the NPC Alcohol Free Resolution and their individual groups' resolutions and policies.
Chairman of the NPC Foundation Jean Scott reported the success of the Centennial Endowment Fund. In honor

In this issue, some of our alumnae chapters share their best ideas and suggestions on how to build their sisterhood by appealing to new members. Much of their success is due to their creativity and their enthusiasm!
Greater Kansas City Alumnae
Our most successful membership recruit- ment idea has been finding program ideas that give members a "girls night out" from all their other duties. We have such a wide range of chapter member ages, that it is really hard to have something for every- one at every meeting. This year we have tried to focus on the event as being the "fun" evening with your sisters each month. Our business at the meetings is kept to a minimum and we try to make the evening fun for all.
We are going to hold a "Bring a lost AOII to lunch" event. At one of our monthly lunch bunch meetings, we are going to encourage our attendees to bring a non-dues paying AOII alumna with them.
Our best recruitment tool is sending everyone on our mailing list a copy of our local directory along with the fall newslet- ter. We ask them to call us for corrections, updates, and encourage their support of our chapter.
Every year we hold a "Death By Chocolate" event to welcome the graduat- ing seniors from Kappa Lambda to the alumnae chapter. We also send out a multi- tude of e-mails to area alumnae inviting them to Calgary Alumnae Chapter events.
Central New Jersey
We've beefed up our newsletters - and now mail them 3 times a year to local alumnae. Included in that is a reference to our web- site, e-mail addresses & phone numbers for all of our officers. We're also going to begin targeting alumnae in our members' home towns to personally invite them to our meetings, offering rides, etc. And finally, we've begun using e-vite to send invitations to our area alumnae whose email addresses we have.
The Charlotte Alumnae Chapter has had success by sending out a newsletter to all alumnae in the area a few weeks before our first meeting. We usually have several interested new members attend the meet- ing. One of our members will contact them after the event to let them know we enjoyed meeting them. If a new member comes to a 2nd meeting, they are present- ed with a small alumnae chapter new member gift In addition every new mem- ber that attends a meeting is added to our calling tree and email list so that we can contact them before every meeting.
We invite Chi Lambda seniors to our activities, hoping to encourage lifetime involvement It is especially beneficial to those remaining in the Evansville area after graduation.
This year we have challenged each member to find a new AOII in our area, and bring them to one of our meetings. Email has also proven very effective as well as following-up with phone calls and mailers.
We sent a mailing to local area alumnae that included a letter from our president encouraging their participation with the chapter and the chapter's schedule of activ- ities for the upcoming year.
We have made the effort to recruit younger alumnae by offering a wide variety of activ- ities that appeals to all age groups.
Each September, Greater Pinellas Alumnae Chapter has a covered dish brunch for our meeting. It is always fun to re-connect after the summer holidays and is an excellent time for prospective members to meet other AOIIs in our area. Good food and friends makes for a fun day. The feeling of sisterhood and friendship is very evident at all of our events.
alumnae news Kentuckiana
We start our recruitment in early August This year's kickoff was held at a local, pop- ular cafe. A short program mixed with conversation, games and news updates help keep the event rolling. And we had plenty of time to eat lunch, pass around photos and catch up on the latest news. We recruited seven members at this single event And we anticipate increasing that number still!
Lake County of Illinois
We encourage our members to wear their AOII letters in the community. You'd be surprised how many AOIIs you will meet! We also stay in touch through email and always invite AOII and non-AOH friends to lots of events.
The Lexington Alumnae Chapter has used a family picnic as the Fall kick-off event We found we had a better turn out by holding the event at a member's home rather than the local park as the home was more inviting. It is a great way to start the year off and encourage new sisters to join the group.
We hold a joint event with our local colle- giate chapter. The collegians invite impor- tant women in their lives (i.e. mother, sister, close friend) to participate in a mock recruitment conversation exercise. The collegians pretend their guests are going through recruitment and practice conver- sation skills. Not only do the collegians get to practice, the guests get to hear what AOII means to our members. After prac- tice is over, the alumnae chapter offers an Alumna Initiate interest sheet for any women who were never in a sorority and are now convinced by their daughter they must be an AOII!
We use email for the majority of our membership recruitment as well as phone calls. We have used the 1999 AOII direc- tory and contacted the sisters listed in our area. We have also used the list that HQ
To Dragma/SPRING 2001
sent out this year to recruit more sisters. Since March 2000, we have added almost 70 people to our roster. We are hoping to get these sisters to attend our events, and giving them our information may get them interested. We also hold our October meeting at a restaurant for dinner.
We hope will bring a lot of new sis- ters o u t Plus we are asking those active sisters to each bring a sister with them.
We have found that by participating in local philanthropic events, we are getting our name out in the commu- nity and attracting new active mem- bers. One notable example, we walked in the annual American Breast Cancer Walkathon at Clove Lake Park last October wearing AOII t-shirts.
The Philadelphia Alumnae Chapter has been getting great recruitment results from our website, www.phillyaoii.home- page.com. Sisters have been finding us through web browser searches or from our link on the
AOII site. It's especially effec-
tive in getting sisters to join our chapter because they're already inter- ested in us before they even find us! Our web site is full of inlormation on our chapter, from local chapter histo- ry to current chapter news and our calendar of events. It is a wonderful resource for current and potential members alike.
Piedmont, N C
A brochure was designed by our Membership Chairman describing our group and the benefits of membership. The brochure, a survey and a personal let- ter were sent out to all prospective mem- bers compiled from the Headquarters list and other women we knew lived in the area. When a survey was received, the
recruitment committee sent handwritten thank-you letters and an invitation to our first event, a social hour/dinner at a popu- lar restaurant Reminders were sent out by email, mail and phone calls. Every poten- tial member attending received a candle
information and membership information in the newsletter as well. We try to plan different activities so that everyone will find at least one thing they would like to attend. We also call local alumnae to
update our records and encourage them to join us for an activity.
When we find out about an interested AOII alumna in our area, we plan an informal happy hour or dinner event where several of our members join our VP of Membership to help welcome and get to know the new sister.
The Tampa Bay Alumnae Chapter offers various levels of membership to attract new members. This year dur- ing the "Back to AOII" luncheon event, a drawing was held for one free year of dues. All members in the Tampa Bay area who have an email address are notified of the monthly events and announcements. Keeping more members involved encourages other individuals to join.
This year, we are focusing on recruit- ment and retention. We are targeting members who have paid in the past 5
years with phone calls, monthly post- cards, and "special notes" or emails. All members who pay their dues before February 1, 2001, were included in a raf- fle drawing for a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant. To add a twist to the raf- fle, six membership levels are offered with each level increasing the number of chances for the drawing. Paid members receive monthly meeting reminder post- cards, directories listing all 460+ AOIIs in our area (sisters are sorted by name, city street or chapter). Toledo Area Alumnae Chapter membership cards are given to all paid members. New members are rec- ognized at their first meeting and receive an AOII gift Meeting maps are included in our directory to make it easier to find each month's location. Stickers corre- sponding to each event are put on each name tag for attendance.

AOII Indiana State Senator
Teresa Lubbers, Beta Phi (Indiana U) was recently re- elected as an Indiana State Senator.

Do you have
what it takes to be an
AOII Rose Member?
If you are an AOII alumna who does not live within a 50-mile radius of an active AOII alum- nae chapter, or i f you are unable to participate in your local alumnae chapter's activi- ties, then you have what it takes to become an AOII Rose Member! Membership in an alumnae chapter is such a rewarding experience, offering opportunities for friendship, service, personal development and networking. With the Rose Member program we hope to offer some of these same bene- fits to members who are not part of an alumna chapter, but who wish to honor and to bene- fit from the lifetime commit- ment they made to AOII.
To become a Rose Member, you simply need to complete an
membership form and submit an annual fee of $15. Once your form has been received, you will be sent two issues of our Rose Member newsletter during the year, a printout of AOII alumnae residing in your zip code area, a small gift from AOII Internationa], and occasional correspondence from alumnae network personnel. You may also sign up for our Rose Member Listserv on the AOII website so that you will be able to easdy communicate online with other AOII Rose Members.
The new Rose Member pro- gram has been developed to reach out to as many of our alumnae as possible and bring them back into the fold of the Fraternity. We look forward to welcoming many new Rose Members - sisters, together, for- ever. Please join us!
To request a Rose Member form, please e-mail pbeasley- @alphaomicronpi.org, or tele- phone Headquarters, (615) 370-0920, ext 2645.

What is Ecstasy and what can it do to you? Whether you are a student, a parent, a grandparent or a friend, educating yourself on the effects of this popular drug could help save the life of someone you love.
To Dragma/SPRING 2001
Wtidr is it?
Ecstasy or MDMA (methylene-a^axymethamphetamine) is a synthetic drug that is both a stimulant and a hallucinogen with effects that are potentially life-threatening. The drug is known by several other street names or slang terms including Adam. Bean, E, M Roll, X, STC, Clarity and Lover's Speed. It is both easily accessible and inexpensive. Ecstasy is sold in tablet, capsule, or powder form, and is sometimes even packaged as generic tablets or cap- sules to imitate prescription drugs. A n easily affordable drug, the average cost per pill is just between $7 and $30.
WCiy is if popular?
Considered a club drug, young people are choosing Ecstasy to improve their mood or to get energy to keep dancing and partying all night Club drugs are commonly used at all-night dance parties (also called raves), nightclubs and concerts. However, public health officials from the 20 major US metropoli- tan areas report that the use is quickly spreading beyond the more traditional club settings. Other drugs grouped in this category include GHB, RohypnoL ketamine, LSD and methamphetamine.
is it rally ddtiqarous?
Like all club drugs, Ecstasy is a combination of other illicit drug. Often manufactured in makeshift laboratories or homes, it is impossible to know what combination of drugs are being used to produce it and where they came from. These unknown factors make Ecstasy unpredictable and dan- gerous. Users often think club drugs are harmless, but research has shown that these drugs can produce a wide range of damaging effects, plus the fact that some club drugs are colorless, tasteless and odorless, they make drink tampering easy.
Research shows that Ecstasy use can have long-lasting negative effects on the brain that can alter memory function and motor skills. While the chug's effects usually last between three to to 24 hours, confusion, depression, sleep prob- lems, anxiety and paranoia have been reported to occur for several weeks after the drug is taken - even after only one dose.
Ecstasy can also produce increases in heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. While teenagers think of this drug as enhancing the intensity of

the rave experience, Ecstasy can trigger a potentially fatal heat reaction called hyperthermia. A high body tempera- ture in a very tightly packed room, can quickly lead to hyperthermia, heart or even kidney failure.
Evidence has shown that Ecstasy can lead to long-lasting damage to serotonm-containing brain cells. Serotonin is critical to normal experiences of mood, emotion, pain, and a wide variety of other behaviors. Additionally researchers have concluded that the use of Ecstasy over a period of months can cause long-term impairment of cognitive performance even if taken in small doses. In a study reported in the Journal of Neurology ; Neurosurgery; and Psychiatry, participants were tested against marijuana users and non-drug users for attention, memory and learning, frontal lobe function and general intelligence. The study revealed. Ecstasy users had poorer perfor- mance results in three general intelligence tests, required more repetitions to learn a word than both the marijuana and non-drug users, and had poorer short-term memory than the non-drug users.
is ttiis d now drug?
Ecstasy is classified as a Schedule I drug, meaning there is no accepted medical use for it i n the U.S. The origin of the drug dates back to the early 1900s when MDMA was developed in Germany by the pharmaceutical company Merck. It appears that the drug came about as a by-prod- uct in the routine drug development process. It remained dormant until the 1970s when psychotherapists used it to enhance communication in patient sessions. MDMA or Ecstasy as we know it emerged in the mid 1980s.
New treatment and prevention strategies are being devel- oped by health and law officials to combat this disturbing drug trend. The bottom line is simple: experimenting with Ecstasy is a dangerous gamble with your life.
Mow can i fall if my
friend or <touqtifcr is
using a club draq?
Sometimes it is hard to tell, but here are some physical effects to watch out for:
* Loss of coordination, dizziness, fainting
* Muscle tension, involuntary teeth clenching * Problems with short term memory
* Reduced appetite
* Sleep problems
* Chills or sweating
* Slurred speech or blurred vision
If you suspect someone you care about is using a club drug, encourage them to stop and seek help. They should talk to a parent, teacher or counselor. For more information and referrals, contact the National Clearinghouse of Alcohol and Drug Information at 800-729-6686.

AJAO Says, "THANKS, AOII!
The American Juvenile Arthritis Organization 2000 National Conference was a huge success! Over 1100 children and adults attended this educational meeting. Alpha Omicron Pi was among the sponsors, providing six "scholarships" for families with children and two scholarships for young single adults who otherwise would not have been able to attend. AOII also underwrote two breakout sessions for young adults.
Health professionals provided the latest information on research and new drugs for treatment Trained counselors worked with children in breakouts by age groups while young adults 18-25 attended sessions on college and careers, coping with ^crimination, relationships and managing symptoms. Sessions for parents addressed issues such as insurance.
Perhaps the best thing about this conference - emotional sup- port from other children, parents and families - is expressed in the letters excerpted here:
"There is nothing like the opening ceremony at the AJAO con- ference each year. ...It is so heart warming as you mingle and look for familiar faces. As you are leaving the hall (for the breakouts), refreshed and inspired and feeling for once that you are not alone, you realize that you have made many friends with more to come. They are friends who are struggling with the same issues, some physical, some emotional (These meetings) give these children and young adults the opportunity to become the best they can be. Thank you."

"Hi! I am an 11-year-old girl who has JRA (juvenile rheuma- toid arthritis). I love going to the AJAO conferences. It is good to talk to other children or other adults about tips for school or just life itself. There is a group for everyone."
Tatiana M .
"I met a young father who was so worried for his 3-year-old daughter who had just been diagnosed with JRA Worried about how she would grow up, have a normal life, be happy. I turned to point out a lovely young woman holding a small child herself. I said, that's my daughter who was diagnosed at the same age as yours. She's married now and that's my granddaughter.
Thank you, AOD, so very much for helping make this meeting possible for these families and children."
Please know you made it happen, wonderful donors! Thank you! Your individual and chapter support is making a difference, a very real difference, in the lives of children, adults and their families, who live with arthritis.
This year AJAO is sponsoring regional meetings in Houston, Boston, Overland Park, Kansas and Seattle. If your chapter would like to sponsor or partly sponsor a family or young adult to one of these meetings, send your Foundation gift designated for AIAO. If your chapter wants informationon the mini-grant program, please call the Foundation office.
• Foundation Chair of the Ruby Fund, and has served on the RF Committee since 1986.
• Degree in Textiles and Merchandising.
• Active member of her local alumnae chapter and serves on Upsilon Corporation Board.
• Community volunteer with the North Area YWCA Committee of Management
• First husband Harlan Humason died in 1983; the couple had two sons and a daughter.
• Currently lives in Seattle with husband Eugene, whom she married in 1990. He had 7 children, so the Hopkins household is a big one, comprising their combined 10 chil-
dren, their spouses, 16 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren!
Audrey's hobby is gardening, especially fuschias. Living on the water for 52 years, it isn't surprising that she enjoys water-skiing, swimming and boating.
About her Foundation service, Audrey has this to say: "AOIIs are so fortunate to have this fund available to them. Nothing has reinforced my beliefs in the fraternity more than seeing the power, strength and good of our sisterhood in the giving to others. I had a great time as a collegian. I could not imagine my being an alumna would be more fun and meaningful, but it has been. Anyone not taking advantage of what our alumnae chapters and fraternity have to offer are missing a great experience. Be an active participant and reap the rewards from the many opportunities provided by AOII and our sisterhood."
Sage words indeed!

•If a chapter carries a legacy through Preference, she is placed on the chapter's first bid list
•A legacy is defined as a biological or adopted daughter, granddaughter, or sister of an initiated member, alive or deceased, of any chartered AOI1 chapter. Half-sisters or step relations are also included if the relation to the AOII member has been a close one.
•Collegiate chapters are not required to offer a bid to every verified legacy.
•Collegiate chapters are required to give serious consideration to each verified A O f l legacy out of courtesy to the AOFI sister to whom she is related. A collegiate chapter may decline membership to a legacy only for very appropriate and verifi- able reason(s).
•In no case should a legacy be denied an invitation to at least one invitational party after the first round of parties.

The Human Resources Committee. Has it worked?
The committee was added at the time of restructuring to allow geographical flexibility in evaluations and appointments. A central- ized "personnel department" would bring consistency and vision, it was thought. Women would be better matched - skills to chapter needs. International nominations would be evaluated by a committee with on- going experience with such a process.
There has been a learning curve, to be sure. AOII has reorganized some net- works; deleted/refashioned some positions. Women have come and gone from a vari- ety of positions - for an equally vast num- ber of reasons. Through it all, H RC has tried to maintain consistency of qualifica- tions, objectivity in evaluation, and profes- sionalism in submitting candidates for appointment or election.
Alpha Omicron Pi's future is based, not only on today's pledges, but also on the skill and generosity of alumnae volunteers. When each of us pledged ourselves to the Fraternity, we vowed to be forever sisters,
supportive ofeach other and the organiza- tion, as well as the colleges and communi- ties in which our chapters are location. We purported to understand that ongoing ser- vice was "part of the deaL"
HRC has received service applications from 417 sisters in four provinces, 39 states, the District of Columbia, and one foreign country. Each biennium, we have assisted Council and the Executive Board in plac- ing over 130 volunteers in international positions. There are over 78,000 women who have been pledged to AOII and have known addresses. Each of them (us) is spe- cial, with particular gifts and talents. Some can easily donate money. Some give time locally. Some barter services to sisters and chapters. Most of us have a bit of time to give, but haven't quite gotten around to fil- ing an Application for Volunteer Service. The aversion may come from thinking that an immediate call for a really, really huge time commitment would follow.
AOII is more in tune with the adage, "many hands make light work." There are on-going jobs, work with collegiate or alumnae chapters; there are intermittent
jobs, evaluation projects, special needs of chapters. There are stationary jobs, and jobs that require some amount of travel. There are bit jobs and little jobs. HRC is made up of sisters, too. Our task is sorting those jobs and those applications, and them matching them.
The larger our application pool the small- er the learning curve (for everyone!), since we can more closely match time and tal- ents with needs. We can offer the Fraternity "the best sister for the job" and we can offer the sister "the best job in the Fraternity, for you." Since spring is the time of refreshment and renewal, find the Application for Volunteer Service in that stack of papers on your desk, or download a fresh one from the AOII Web site. Renew your commitment for service to the Fraternity, make new friends, share your- self.
The answer to, "Has it worked?" is "Yes, BUT..." It could work so much better with YOU!

AOIIs commit countless hours of their time helping others. If you are looking for a new idea on how to raise money while having fun, just take a few minutes and read some of the ideas submitted by our collegiate chapters. To Dragma salutes each o f these chapters for their hard work and generosity to AOIIs philanthropy and t o local charities.
raise money for arthritis research. The event takes place for 24 hours straight as sisters take 30 minute shifts to keep the teeter totter going. The Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity brothers donate their time to keep the other end of the tetter totter going for us. This annual event takes place in the center of campus where it is highly visable. Passers-by are able to make donations in support of our efforts.

spaghetti. It could not have been possible without the help of the parents of certain sis- ters that went beyond the call of duty.
Murray State U
We sponsor the Mr. Murray State University7 pageant each year. Different organizations on campus are allowed to nominate one guy. The contestants are judged on a dance num- ber, interview, talent, and escort our seniors in the evening wear competition. It is always very successful, raising between $3500- $4000 for arthritis research.
Central Missouri State
Every year Delta Pi holds an auction at our Parent's Day dinner. Families donate items they bought or made. These items are then auctioned off and bought by the parents attending the dinner. This year the money that was raised went towards bringing the NPC Something of Value program to our campus.
This year we have a new male calendar that we have sponsored. It features reputable men on campus modeling each month. The calendar will be sold and funds go to benefit arthritis research.
We hold an annual cookout before the biggest home game of the season. We call it Backyard Bash, and it is open to all students, alumnae, and fans. We pre-sell tickets and also allow people to walk in to purchase a plate. The tickets include a hamburger or hotdog, chips, a drink, a pickle, and a dessert, this event raises money for arthritis research and our house development fund.
Georgia Southern U
We hold an annual flag football tournament called Red Rose BowL We ask organizations to sponsor a team in a tournament at our recreation fields. We also create t-shirts that bear the endorsement of several local busi- nesses and individuals who contribute to our tournament It is a great way for all of the Greek community at Georgia Southern to come together and have fun.
Bowling Green State U
We held a box social. This involves decorat- ing boxes and filling them with fun gifts to sell to our local fraternities.
Our best fund raising event is our Tetter- Totter-A-Thon which we do every year to
Our member raise money by working special campus events, selling parking spots and working games.
U of Evansville
Our best fund raising idea is Alpha Love Connection. We encourage members from Greek and school organizations to partici- pate in our "dating game". It is similar to MTVs Singled Out, where one guy and one girl pick through contestants based on their favorite characteristics in a boyfriend or girl- friend. The winning couple goes out on a date sponsored by local businesses.
Northeastern State U
This year, the Chi Theta chapter is doing a hula hoop-athon for our Redmen Rally, at the football tailgate party.
Walk-a-thon is our biggest fund-raiser, where each sister receives a pledge from willing donors to donate money per lap the sister walks. We usually raise over $7,000.
Jacksonville State U
Last year a sister came up with the idea of having a drive-thru spaghetti supper for the entire campus. We sold tickets to students and they could drive by and pick up their
Beta Tau (U of Toronto)
To Dragma/SPRING 2001
Pennsylvania State U
To raise money for Football Challenge we usually go canning downtown and also sell raffle tick- ets for a drawing we have during the day of our event
The Epsilon Chi Chapter had two extremely successful fundraisers last year. A01I in the Face takes place at campus or community events. Members of the commu- nity pay two dollars to throw a whipped cream pie in the face of the sister of their choice. In The Walk for Roses, each sister gets friends and other members of the com- munity to sponsor them a certain amount of money for every lap that she walks. Both of these activities are fun ways to raise money for arthritis research.
Eastern Kentucky U
Our best fund raising activity is our annual Lip Sync competition. It is one of the only philanthropy events that all of the campus greek organizations participate in. Most chapters come up with a theme that their music goes along with. Each of us is respon- sible for coaching a chapter. It is so much fun and the sisters of the Epsilon Omega, along with the rest of the campus, look for- ward to lip sync each year.
A hind raiser we are planning to use is teeter-totter for arthritis. We'll make and decorate teeter-totters in our back yard and get sponsors for each hour teetered.
U of South Alabama
The Gamma Delta Chapter kicked off Juvenile Arthritis Awarenes Week with their first annual softball tournament The tour- nament lead to the theme of this year's casu- al day T-shirts, "Help Kids Strike Out Arthritis." Local businesses were sponsors for the casual day shirts, as well as for the softball tournament Over $6,000 was raised
ested in becoming a sponsor for arthritis research. The day of the fundraiser, we went and picked up each of our sponsors on the time they indicated in a limosine. They then came back to our little jail cell In order to get out of "the joint" they had to make a phone call to raise their bail
Florida Southern College
Our philanthropic event is "Star Search" and has been successful in raising money for arthritis research. Campus chapters and organizations are invited to enter an act, whether it is singing, dancing, or another special talent that their members may have. The acts are judged by profes- sors and college officials, and the winners are given prizes.
Ball State U
For the past several years we have paired with a fraternity in October to host a haunt- ed house. The philanthropic event is spruced up with a fundraiser at the door. We sell pumpkin seeds to occupy our guests and give them something to munch on while they wait to be frightened inside.
U of Calgary
Kappa Lambda held a fundraiser at our uni- versity called "Photos with Santa and his Elves." The idea is to set up Santa's work- shop in the North Pole right in the middle of campus. Students, teachers and teams will have to opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa or the elves.
The fund-raiser that Kappa Phi likes to use is one that takes little planning and gives the sisters a chance to spend time together. We sign up to check coats at a local business and get half of the $2
fee for each coat that we hang up as well as all the tips that we make throughout the night. This not only raises money but it gets our name out on campus.

through the softball tournament, casual day sponsors, and T-shirt sales to go towards arthritis research.
U of Illinois
As a fundraising event, Iota Chapter spon- sors a Sweetest Day rose sale. Roses are sold anyone on campus who wishes to send a rose to their Sweetest Day sweetheart The roses are specially delivered to recipients with a personal message from the sender attached. All proceeds of the rose sale bene- fit A Women's Place, a home for battered women, and Books for Kids, an organization which encourages childhood reading by buying books.
U ofW estem Ontario
We have an annual fashion show that is the largest philanthropic event in our greek community. Our fashion show is in late February, and so we sell CANDYGRAMS for valentines day. All of the AOIIs go around to the six sororities and twenty fraternities and sell candygrams (little homemade cello- phaned bundles of cinnamon hearts and other festive candies) to the other greeks. They can send candygrams to friends, signif- icant others or crushes. We deliver them in person on Valentine's Day with a little song. We sell them for $3 dollars each, or five for $12. This is by far one of our most successful fundraising activities, and everyone loves to send and receive our candygrams!!!
Northwestern State U
Since arthritis research is so imprtant to the Kappa Chi Chapter, We came up with a fundraiser called "Go To The Joint". We
went around to local businesses and local residents asking them if they would be inter-
Epsilon Chi (Bon co//egej
I^ast year our chapter tried to select a fund - raiser that everyone would enjoy. Eventually, we decided to go out onto cam- pus and into the community for a bottle and can drive. The drive was a great success. Not only did we raise money for arthritis research, but we spent a whole day having fun together.
Southeastern Louisiana U
"Go to the Joint" is our best event
one day out of the semester to set up a fake
jail cell on campus in our Student Union. We pick numerous important people in our area, such as the president of the university, or important professors to volunteer their time. Each person gets in the jail cell for 30 minutes. The person is not allowed out ot the jail cell until a certain amount of money is raised as bail to let them out This is a great way to get the community involved and an easy way to raise money.
GrandValley State U
This semester marked our second annual bowl-a-thon. We co-sponsored this event with another fraternity on campus. Local businesses gave donations and sponsored lanes for the event, and sisters collected pledges of varying monetary amounts. Anyone who pledged 10 dollars or more was invited to bowl with us for the three hours the event lasted at no cost We were able to raise about $800 dollars from this event alone and were very proud of our accom- plishment
U of Louisiana at Monroe
A great fundraiser that Lambda Tau, along with Panhellenic, held in the Spring was a golf tournament Our money went to benefit Mercy Ministries, a home for troubled moms in our area. We raised lots of money for Mercy and we had a great time serving snacks and riding in the golf carts!
U of Mississippi
The N u Beta Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi helps sponsor the Dr. Jean Jones Walk for Cancer in the spring semester. Even girl in our chapter participates in this event, whether it is registering the runners at six o'clock in the morning or distributing water after the race is over. It is a fun day for everyone who participates and last year we raised $2500.
Each fall semester, we have our annual Fajita Fest to raise money for arthritis research. A local Mexican restaurant caters fajitas, and all of our sisters make homemade desserts. It is held on our lawn, and we sell tickets prior to the event as well as at the door. This past year we added a fun twist to the afternoon, Latin music and members of the Vanderbilt Hispanic Student .Association were there to teach latin dancing.
For the third consecutive year we will be co- sponsoring a haunted house with the men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. We all have fun deco- rating the house with spider webs, plastic bats, and other scary items. The day of the haunted house, we take area children trick- or-treating to other Greek houses then bring them through the haunted house.
Each fall before a home football game our Mother's Club and Alumnae help us orga- nize the A01I Barbecue. Students and fans
Nu Seta (U of Mississippi) drop by on the way to the football came and enjoy the Blue Grass band and a bar- becue sack lunch. Forty years of the annu- al barbecue has made this year our Buby Jubilee. The long-standing tradition of the event is perhaps what makes the barbecue
East Stroudsberg U
This semester the Phi Beta Chapter at East Stroudsberg University has come up with some great ideas for fund raising. Our best, however, has to be selling generic ink car- triges from a online company called Get Toner. Those wishing to buy these cartridges can go to gettoner.com and enter the pin number 205. This will credit AOII Phi Beta Chapter. A l l proceeds will go to arthritis research
U of Nebraska Kearney
Phi Sigma's spring fundraiser for arthritis research is a competition called "Big Man on Campus." This past year, we had 10 men from different campus organizations com- pete for the honor. Our winner was lavon Washington, a junior on the University of Nebraska-Kearney football team. This was the third year that Phi Sigma held "Big Man on Campus," and we raised over $1,000 to benefit arthritis research.

money to go to the organization, Adoptions Together. This organization helps children get adopted into loving families.
Rho Delta held a spaghetti dinner for arthri- tis research in September. We had local restaurants and stores donate all of the food. Thanks to generous donations from Olive Garden, Papa John's, Milo's, and
Brunos, we were able to make a generous contribution to our philanthropy.
U of California - Berkeley
Selling home-made candy packages (with both chocolate and fruity-flavored candy) on your school's main walkway for a dollar each can raise a lot of money for your philan- thropy. People love candy and a dollar isn't much for a quick snack on the go.
We all enjoy Trick-or-Treating for arthritis research during Halloween. We pass out a statement explaining cause the cause sup- ports and where the individual's contribu- tions would be going.
During Parents' Weekend and Homecoming Weekend at Huntingdon College, we host AOPie in the Face. For one dollar, anyone can toss at their favorite AOII. All proceeds are donated to arthritis research. A wonder- lid lime is had by all
California State U - Northridge
For our fund-raiser we have created the
Men of CSUN calendar. riTiree or more
guys from each fraternity or organization
submitted aplications and they were
choosen based upon their campus
involvement and an interview. Then we
put together the calendars and sold them
Last Spring we held a non-profit organized concert in which all proceedes went toward our philanthropy, arthritis research. It was called Moon Bash, and included 100% par- ticipation of the Sigma Tau Chapter. There was a band that played for the cause and not the profit, and we accumulated some sponnsors. All profit from this function was made to arthritis research.
U of Minnesota
For Valentine's Day,Tau Chapter had a rose sale. We sold over 100 dozen roses to mem- bers of the Greek Community and our alumnae for their sweeties on Valentine's Day. All the money we raised was given to arthritis research.
Birmingham Southern College
To raise money for arthritis research, we host Mr. Hilltopper each fall. .All sororities and fraternities participate in this "male beauty pageant". One guy is selected as Mr. Hilltopper after participating in a skit and answering a random question.

Tau Gamma teeter totters for twenty-four hours during homecoming weekend, when all the wonderful alumnae are in town. We do this with a fraternity on campus and split the funds between phil- anthropies.
We set up a "mile of quarters" around the building of our local mall. We hand out fly- ers about who we are and what we are
about People simply lay quarters down on double sided sticky tape as a donation to pMlanthropy.

Throw a pie at an AOII! Theta Pi Chapter attempted to have a fund-raiser in which the campus was invited to choose an AOII, and for 25 cents was invited to throw a pie at them. Campus interest was instantly perked. The campus gave us permission to do it dur- ing carnivals and other events.
Theta Psi looks forward each spring to our Annual AOPie in the Face fund raiser. Tickets are sold before and during the event and it gives them the chance to throw a pie at an AOII of their choice. Last year we offered other greek members, and directors of campus organizations as targets. It is held in the middle of campus and anyone could throw a pie in our face. All the money that we receive is donated to arthritis research.
U of Nebraska Lincoln
The Zeta Chapter has a barbeque before a home football game. This year we joined with a fraternity, Alpha Gamma Sigma, and also rode a bicycle for 48 hours before the barbeque. We raised around 3,000 dollars from ticket sales and sponsors.
SouthwestTexas State U
The fund-raiser that we have every year is called Rose Bowl. It is a flag football tourna- ment for the campus community. It gener- ates most of our fund raising while also allowing us to get our name out on campus.
U of Alabama Birmingham
Zeta Pi loves "Trick or Treating for Arthritis!" We get decked out in the most creative cos- tumes we can find and go door to door the night before Halloween. It always makes
people laugh to see college age girls dressed up- and they happily to give to our cause.

Kappa Omega (U of Kentucky)
AOII Collegian named Kentuckian of the Year!

She was selected over a field of can- didates that included U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, astro- naut Terry Wilcutt and Kentucky Speedway owner Jerry Carroll.

injured in the shooting spree. Committed to helping curb violence, Missy's story is the cover story of the January 2001 issue of the publication.
AOII is grateful to all the chapters and members who have donated to the Headquarters Capital Campaign. The letter below represents the commitment and support of many of our collegiate chapters in this endeavor. We thankfully acknowledge their dedication.
"The sisters of Lambda Sigma would like to thank you for all of your hard work in making the future of AOII brighter than ever and wish you the very best of luck as the fundraising efforts continue. In vowing to do our part to support our Fraternity, both on the international and chap- ter levels, Lambda Sigma is pledging [a sizable contribution] to the AOII International Capital Campaign over the next four years.
We understand the importance of a new home for AOII, its staff and its resources in contributing to the success of our own chapter by enabling the development of its leadership. In making this donation, we would like to ask that one of the Executive Board Offices be named in recognition of Lambda Sigma and of our commitment to the Fraternity."
We will continue to do our best to advance the name of
AOII and its members and feel confident in the knowledge that you are seeking to do the same. Thanks again and con- gratulations.
