Are you interested in giving back to Tri Delta? Why not become an advisor, you will help guide the collegiate chapter to even greater success. Krystal and Selen have served as Alumna Advisor (AA) for the past two years and have done a wonderful job of helping the chapter to achieve their goals. Now is your chance to become more involved. I served as AA when Krystal and Selen were in chapter and I can tell you that it is a tough job but a rewarding one, you’ll learn more about yourself, the chapter and Delta Delta Delta.
We are looking to fill two advisor roles, Alumna Advisor and Finance and Administration Advisor (FAA). Our new advisors will join Carmelina our current Lifetime Member Advisor (LMA) in supporting our amazing collegiate members in Canada Alpha. Below is a brief description of the roles. If you are interested in learning more please contact myself Carrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Selen (email@example.com)
The Alumna Advisor is the chairman of the Advisory Team and supervises the collegiate chapter to ensure overall well-being and success. She provides guidance and support to designated officers and focuses on the chapter’s leadership development and overall image. She is knowledgeable in all aspects of chapter mechanics and Fraternity programs. She participates in the recruitment and training of new advisors and ensures the chapter is a contributing member of the university community. The AA attends all regular meetings, standards and OTC.
The Finance and Administration Advisor provides guidance and support to the officers under the finance and administration teams, and is knowledgeable in the Accreditation process, chapter member record maintenance, Tri Delta property administration and chapter financial mechanics.
How long must you have been an alumnae member before you can AA?
AA should be out of chapter for 4 years so that there is no one in chapter that the AA was in chapter with.
I echo Carrie’s comments on how rewarding this experience is! I learned so much about myself, leadership, communication and just being a better person through my regular interaction with incredible women. I read recently that giving your time away to someone else actually helps you feel less busy and better about the time you spend doing things for yourself. I encourage anyone thinking about it to do it – you won’t regret it.
While it was some time since I was Alumna Advisor, it was a wonderful opportunity to learn from and with some amazing young women. Just to give you an idea of how long ago it was, we were the house with the baby–my daughter Alyson!
