Camp Tri Delta – Feb 26th!

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! Join us from 8:00 PM – 9:00 PM to enjoy your favourite camp food, with camp fire cooked ‘mac and cheese’ and desserts to satisfy that sweet tooth!
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!
If you are unable to attend, please consider donating to the following link:

Please join me in supporting SickKids too. It is a great way to make a difference.

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

Toronto Alumnae Chapter Elections for 2018-2020

(Source: www.annetaintor.com)

“I want every little girl who’s been told she’s bossy to be told again she has leadership skills.”

– Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

Calling all “bossy” alumnae! I’m your Nom Com Mom! That means I’m the chair of the 2018-2020 Nominating Committee of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter.

All joking aside, the role of the Nominating Committee is an important one. We slate the President, Vice President, Treasurer & Secretary for the next biennium.

The slate of officers will be presented at our Annual General Meeting on Sunday, February 11th and all dues-paying members of the Toronto Alumnae Chapter are eligible to vote.

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

Here’s the list of Executive Committee chair appointments in alphabetical order: Adopt-A-New Member Program, Alumnae-Collegiate Relations, Database, Dorothy Cody Award, Golden Circle, Historian, Membership, Newsletter Editor, Panhellenic, Philanthropy, Social Events, Social Media & Gin Systems, Young Alumnae and Webmaster.

What do we need from you?

  • If you haven’t already done so, please pay your alumnae chapter dues, so that you are eligible to nominate a sister, self-nominate and vote.
  • The Committee is accepting nominations by email and by phone until Friday, February 2nd. My contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.
  • For each of your nominees, kindly explain why you believe she is the ideal candidate.
  • All nominees will be asked to fill out our Leadership Profile. Please click Leadership Profile 2018 to view and download it.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the shaping of our chapter leadership for the next biennium. We look forward to receiving your nominations and your completed Leadership Profiles.

Loyally,

Your 2018-2020 Nominating Committee
