Sister Request: Vote for Chief World Explorer

Hi Tri Delta sisters,

I am a Tri Delta alum from the University of Kentucky.

I have just applied for a position that I have been dreaming of for years: the Jauntaroo Chief World Explorer position. The chosen Chief World Explorer will travel around the world for a year — to 30 to 50 destinations — and document all of the destinations through blogging, photography, and video, while also managing the social media accounts for Jauntaroo, which is a start-up travel company, also known as the ultimate travel ‘matchmaker.’ Voluntourism is also one of the main duties of the Chief World Explorer — a volunteer project will be done in each destination. I am interested in volunteering and starting a non-profit; I have already pitched, created, and successfully  started my first project, The Silly Bandz Project.

I feel that I am very qualified for this position. I have travelled independently to 30 countries, I’ve roughed it on 22-hour train rides through China and 18-hour bumpy bus rides (through the night) in Cambodia. I feel that I am an established traveller and that I have the skill set to take on this role. Check out my website and travel blog and my LinkedIn profile to see more about my skills, experience, and to see for yourself that I would be perfect at this!

I’m not sure how much votes even count for, but please vote. You can vote once a day (from each platform, so actually twice a day if you
vote once from your phone and once from your laptop). Please forward on to friends, family, etc. and say that a Tri Delta alum (May 2012 graduate) needs support; it would be much appreciated! There are like a billion applicants, so I’m sure that I won’t make it to the top 50,
but you never know!

Thanks very much in advance and if anyone ever has travel questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!

Best,

A B B I E R O D E N

“Paying Our Dues”

These days, the expression “to pay one’s dues” is almost always used in a negative context. It conjures up images of new employees being exploited, working long hours for little pay. Their hope is that once this initial period of hardship has ended, they’ll be rewarded with better work/life balance and a fair wage.

Paying our annual Tri Delta alumnae chapter dues isn’t a hardship, though, because the benefits are plentiful and immediate. In addition to an annual directory and quarterly issues of the Toronto Tri Delta Tribune, our local dues cover sponsorship of the collegiate chapter, philanthropic donations, free and subsidized events, refreshments, supplies, our Founders’ Day room rental, Circle Ceremony gifts, and our Convention delegate’s expenses. As you can see, that’s a great deal of value for the cost of a week’s worth of lattes! For a limited time, local dues are only $30.00. Read on to find out more…

For over a decade, our combined international and local dues have remained frozen at $60.00, due in large part to the strength of the Canadian dollar. International dues are $20.00 and cover various costs, including The Trident, Convention, programming, and administration. International dues are waived for Life Loyal members. (If you would like to find out more about Life Loyal membership, go to www.tridelta.org/lifeloyal.)

Local dues are $40.00, but if paid before the early bird deadline on October 15th, they are only $30.00. That means, you can pay your combined international and local dues for the low cost of $50.00! To pay by cheque, please contact our treasurer via this website. You may also pay by credit card.  The discounted PayPal widget should be posted on this site by September 10th.

I hope that you’ll consider “paying your dues,” even if you’re unable to attend every event on the 2013-2014 calendar. Your continued support of our alumnae chapter helps to keep Tri Delta strong in Toronto.

In the bonds,

Carly Klassen
President, Toronto Alumnae Chapter
