This year, during the Fall 2017 semester, I had the awesome opportunity to be the New Member Assistant for Alpha Sigma Tau. In this position I helped the New Member Educator guide our new members through a six-week process. During this process the new members did activities such as big little mixes to meet potential bigs, big little reveal to finally meet their big, quizzes to learn about Alpha Sigma Tau, meetings, and much more. It was wonderful being able to share my love for AST with the new women and help then also fall in love with this amazing organization.
This year we brought in 20 new women in the chapter through formal recruitment and continuous open bidding. Because of the two separate bidding processes we had two different groups of fall 17 one was initiated before Halloween and the other before Christmas. This presented a different challenge but together Hannah and I changed things up a bit and got all the new members everything they needed to be initiated.
At the end of every Fall semester, we elect new women into each position for this sorority. This year, after working extremely hard in the position as New Member Assistant, I was elected into the Director of New Member Education. I am so excited to be taking on this role and to continue to help the newest additions to my chapter grow. Being in this position as the Director will allow me to help new members through the initiation processes as well as the big little process. I also have so many new ideas for the processes and can wait to see the differences I can make. Likewise I have a wonderful assistant Kelli who will help the new members and myself. She is such a fantastic person and one of my good friends so together we will be a dynamic duo.
I am thrilled to watch our next group of women flourish within such a wonderful organization. So here’s to you Fall 17! I am so excited to welcome the next group of women ♥
