You’re Invited to Vegas!

Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Las Vegas

Dear Toronto Alumnae,

I have some exciting news to share with you! Psi Psi Psi, the sorority for Tri Delta mothers, is hosting its 2018 International Convention at Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, NV from September 27-30. Tri Deltas are cordially invited to attend!

A meaningful mother-daughter weekend. A fun-filled Tri Delta reunion trip. A spectacular golf getaway. Feel free to take advantage of the discounted hotel rate to plan activities that interest you, then join the Convention for the Saturday banquet and/or the Violet Brunch on Sunday. The banquet is open to all Tri Psis, Tri Deltas, spouses, family and guests. The cost is $45 US per person. The Violet Brunch for Tri Psis and Tri Deltas is $30 US per person.

Also, the Tri Psis will be conducting initiation at the Convention. Tri Delta daughters serve as sponsors for their mothers at this Ritual written by Sarah Ida Shaw Martin. Initiation is open to mothers, stepmothers and foster mothers of DDDs of all ages, not just collegians. Whether your mom attended college, joined Tri Delta, joined a different NPC group or didn’t pledge a sorority at all, Tri Psi sisterhood is open to her. It’s a wonderful way to honor your mom and to share with her the bonds that Tri Psis and Tri Deltas hold dear.

Here is more information about Sam’s Town and how to register:

Congratulations and thanks to the new officers for sharing their leadership skills with our chapter!

Our most important chapter goals, as identified by the nominees’ Leadership Profiles, are strengthening alumnae-collegiate relations, increasing recruitment of recent grads, boosting attendance at events, offering more varied programming and enhancing our social media presence and engagement.

Nominees were also asked about their dream jobs, regardless of skill or income. From doctor to veterinarian, environmental land use planner to national park tour guide, it’s no surprise that even in their imaginations, our new leaders are focused on compassion and service.

Thank you to everyone who nominated a sister or self-nominated. Special thanks to my fellow Nom Com members Betty-Faye LeRiche and Melanie Blundell for all of their inspired ideas and hard work. We look forward to celebrating the installation of the new officers.

Loyally,

Carly Klassen, Chair

2018-2020 Nominating Committee

Tie Collection

It’s spring cleaning cleaning time so go through those closets. Do you have men’s ties that are not in use? Why not donate them to the alumnae. Helen Ward will be collecting the ties to create a Delta Delta Delta banner. She will unveil the final project at Founders’. If you would like to contribute
please bring your ties to any upcoming event and a member of the executive will take them. Or if you prefer to reach out to Helen you can find her contact details in our directory.

Hello Tri Delta Alumni, Tri Psi, Family and Friends:
On behalf of the collegiate members of Tri Delta Canada Alpha Chapter, I am so excited to invite you to our upcoming philanthropy event on February 26th!

Thank you for all the support you have given us, SickKids, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospitals in the past. As Tri Delta women, we are committed to making a global impact on the fight against childhood cancer, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. There is strength in numbers; we would love to have the highest number of alumnae in attendance at our next philanthropy event!

THE FIVE Ws OF NOM COM – AND HOW!

(Source: testeach.com)

WHO ARE THE MEMBERS OF NOM COM?

  • We are delighted to announce that Melanie Blundell and Betty-Faye LeRiche have joined Carly Klassen on the 2018-2020 Nominating Committee.
  • This brings our total to three members, in accordance with our chapter bylaws, and also provides the committee with a multi-generational perspective.
  • Feel free to reach out to any Nom Com member with your nominations.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?

  • Looking for a new opportunity? We’d love to hear from you! Please complete your Leadership Profile as soon as possible.
  • Point form is fine and there are no wrong answers.
  • And don’t forget to pay your dues! Only dues-paying members of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter are eligible to be involved in the election process.

WHEN WILL NOM COM FINALIZE THE SLATE FOR VOTING?

  • The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 2nd.
  • Between Saturday, February 3rd and Saturday, February 10th, Nom Com will discuss and finalize the slate.
  • President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary will be presented for election.

WHERE WILL THE SLATE BE PRESENTED?

  • The slate will be presented at the Annual General Meeting at T-Buds on Sunday, February 11th.

WHY IS NOM COM CONCERNED ABOUT COMMITTEE CHAIRS IF ONLY FOUR OFFICES ARE SLATED?

  • While committee chairs are appointed, not elected, Nom Com accepts nominations for these keys roles as well, so we can make recommendations to the incoming Executive Committee.

HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?

  • Nominate a sister! Think about the Tri Deltas within your circle. Who might be ready for a new challenge? Who is a little shy, but might be willing to share her talents if given an encouraging nudge?
  • Even if the sister you have in mind is not a current dues-paying member, she can still be considered if she pays her dues by the AGM.

Thanks for your assistance with the nominating process, and for your commitment to the Tri Delta Toronto Alumnae Chapter. We look forward to having tea with you on the 11th!

Loyally,

Your 2018-2020 Nominating Committee
