Welcome from the President

Greetings Alpha Chi Omega Sisters! Welcome to a new year of sisterhood and great programs for the Mu Mu Alumnae Chapter of Greater Kansas City. We have a dedicated group of Real.Strong.Women. that support Mu Mu by serving on the executive board, opening their homes for events, donating time and talents for fundraising, and paying membership dues to support our collegiate chapters and philanthropies. Alpha Chi Omega is for a lifetime and Mu Mu members certainly reflect that fact. Whether you are a new grad, new to Kansas City, or just now have the time to get back to AX, Mu Mu welcomes you and hopes to see you at some of our programs in the coming year. As I begin another term as president, I am excited to continue to be a part of the great team of women that dedicate their time and talents to make Mu Mu a strong alumnae chapter. Many of these women also serve on chapter advisory boards, house corporations, and national roles, so if you are looking for a connection, we have it. We also have strong new alumnae initiates. I have served on the Mu Mu board since 1990, in a variety of roles, VP-Membership, VP-Fraternity Relations and VP-Finance. The Alpha Chi Omega bond is for a lifetime, no matter when it starts. Your alumna experience can be anything you want it to be and your Mu Mu AX sisters are here to help and support you.

We have a variety of programs and opportunities to meet sisters from across the country. We have a great mix of activities to choose from, including monthly programs, GAMMA-day time meetings, monthly Lunch Bunch, Young Alum outings, Mom and Tot, and fundraising and altruism events for family and friends. Please contact me or any other board member if you have any questions, need a ride, or would like to carpool. Our first program of the year is in September. It is a WELCOME BACK party that celebrates your chapter of initiation. It is a casual evening of meeting old and new sisters and celebrating our collegiate chapters. Check out the program schedule and mark the dates on your calendar.

Please consider becoming a dues paying member. Your dues go to support programming, collegiate chapters, National dues, Panhellenic dues and scholarships. Dues are $35 for standard membership (with reduced rates of $30 for 50 year members and $25 for recent graduates). In addition, we have levels of membership support. Members paying $50 will be at the Carnation level, members paying $75 will be at the Lyre level, and members paying $100 will be at the Hera level. These levels include membership dues. The additional amounts paid go to support scholarship/grants, collegiate relations, programming and other Mu Mu expenses. Thanks to all the loyal members that pay their dues, serve on the board, support our fundraisers through attendance and donations, and attend our monthly programs.

Loyally,

Beverly Wood Nichols, Alpha Nu ’75
