Canada Alpha is Hosting Tri Psi 2012 International Convention

The Canada Alpha Chapter of Tri Psi volunteered to host our annual Convention in Nashville. We did this as nobody else had come forward to host the 2012 Convention, and we’re well-seasoned in hosting conventions. We chose Nashville because many of our members do not have passports.

In the past we were so grateful for the the support we received from the Toronto Alumnae Chapter of Tri Delta. Once again we approach you. We would love it if some of you would join us in Nashville as we have an exciting program for guests, Tri Deltas, and Tri Psis, including an evening at the Grand Ole Opry. We are holding two hotel rooms at the Convention site, available to any who wish to join us. Also any monetary gift to help offset the cost of hosting the Convention would be very much appreciated.

Please check out our website at for further information. Just click on 2012 Convention to find further information on Convention Registration, Hotel Registration, and Convention Program.

Tri Psi love,
Olive Jeejeebhoy

Recruitment Donations

As members of the collegiate advisory team we wanted to ‘Thanks’ to all those alumnae who have already showed their support for this year’s 2012 Recruitment efforts. Because of your contributions the collegians have already collected the items on their donation wish list well ahead of recruitment.

For those alumnae who wanted to donate to recruitment there are still other donation opportunities. Please consider making a donation to the Adopt-a-new-member fund to help a new member offset the initial costs of becoming a member in our beloved organization. As an alternative the collegiate chapter will still accept donations in general.

Evergreen: A Tri Delta Journey in Leadership

In March 2012, The Center for Living, Learning & Leading launched Evergreen – A Delta Delta Delta Journey in Leadership. For one week, 10 Tri Delta collegiate members were given the opportunity to explore the landscape of Costa Rica while also engaging in their own self-exploration and leadership development.

Through daily workshops, participants receive instruction in leadership practices, principles and discovering solutions to leadership challenges – all while getting to know the people, culture and landscape of Costa Rica. Most importantly, this experience allows members to build a valuable network of Tri Delta leaders and immerse themselves in the Purpose of our organization. This year, we will be offering the Evergreen program twice, allowing us to provide more members with this life-changing opportunity. Participants can choose between two sessions: March 3-10 or March 10-17, 2013.

Do you know a collegiate chapter member who would be interested? Perhaps you would like to sponsor a participant or give a donation to The Center to support Evergreen. To sponsor or find out more information about sponsoring Evergreen, please contact A video providing an additional in-depth look at all this program has to offer can be found online at

More information about Evergreen and how collegiate members can apply can be found at Thank you for your commitment to Tri Delta and for your consideration in this once in a lifetime experience for our collegiate members.
