In just a few months, we’ll be feeling the sun on our face at the 2018 Phi Mu National Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada! If you’ve attended Convention in the past, you know what a special experience it can be for Phi Mu sisters. It’s a chance to reconnect, celebrate our past and share enthusiasm and energy for the future of our sisterhood. For Phi Mu Foundation, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our philanthropic work for the biennium and honor our loyal donors.
If you’re planning to join us in Las Vegas on July 3-8, 2018, here are a few things to consider as we get closer:
- Check your gift history. You may be close to the next giving level and eligible for recognition during the Phi Mu Foundation Business Session at Convention! To receive a gift summary by email, contact Stewardship and Development Coordinator Mary Askew.
- Think about donating an item or two to the Phi Mu Foundation Sisterhood Auction. Every biennium, we call upon sisters, friends, and collegiate and alumnae chapters to donate items to be auctioned off during the Convention week to benefit the Fraternity’s growing needs and provide opportunities that enrich the lives of our sisters. Last Convention, we featured everything from a French barge cruise and a stay in the heart of New Orleans, to jewelry, makeup, designer sunglasses and more! Contact Stewardship and Development Coordinator Mary Askew for more information.
- Members of our annual giving programs – 1852 Society, Legacy League, Carnation Club and Rose & White – receive invitations to exclusive events and meet and greet opportunities during Convention. Think about joining one of these programs (or even upgrading to the next level, if you’re already a member) to secure your spot.
To get you ready for the trip, take a ‘virtual’ stroll down memory lane through our Phi Mu Heritage Museum and read more about beloved favors from Conventions past. The Heritage Museum – managed by the Phi Mu Foundation Historic Preservation Committee – houses these and thousands more artifacts and archives from our 166 year history.
