Can you think of a better way to spend your summer than interning at the Phi Mu National Headquarters? Neither can these two women – Lexi Artman, Delta, and Jackie Brideau, Kappa Omicron!
Lexi and Jackie have joined the Phi Mu Foundation staff this summer to learn more about furthering the lifetime development of women through all of the various programs of the Foundation. From donor relations to event planning to fundraising – Lexi and Jackie will have the opportunity to see how we’re investing in our members and our sisterhood each and every day.
“As philanthropy chair for my chapter, I thought I knew a lot about the Phi Mu Foundation … but I’ve learned so much more since securing this internship! From leadership opportunities to scholarships to historic preservation, Phi Mu Foundation’s efforts are fundamental to all members,” says Lexi.
Lexi and Jackie are already hard at work with their first keystone project – managing the sales and promotion of Caring Carnations for the 2016 Phi Mu National Convention. In 2014, Phi Mu Foundation sold more than 8,800 Caring Carnations, and we anticipate exceeding that number this year due to the exciting addition of the Golden Quatrefoil. There’s no doubt these two have their work cut out for them, leading the way on one of Phi Mu’s most popular and beloved Convention traditions!
Jackie says, “Interning with Phi Mu Foundation is providing me with a whole new perspective of Phi Mu. It’s easy to get excited and fundraise for the M3 Campaign, and but you never stop and think about what happens behind the scenes to help bring those things to life! Together, the Foundation and the Fraternity make so much possible for our members, and I love being a part of that.”
Please join us in welcoming Lexi and Jackie to the team, and be sure to stop by the Phi Mu Foundation check-in desk in Chicago to wish them a wonderful first Convention experience!
