CHICAGO, Ill. Nov. 16, 2015 – Gamma Phi Omega International Sorority Inc. (Gamma Phi Omega) has officially recognized West Suburban Illinois Alumnae Colony (WSIAC) as Phi Delta Chapter, marking it as the 4th chapter serving its alumnae members. These entities grant women of the organization an opportunity to develop programming suitable for alumnae.
The alumnae members who form part of WSIAC appeared before the National Board of Directors (NBOD) Sunday morning to present an overview of their past year’s events and initiatives. All programming is led by the organization’s four goals: academic excellence, community service, cultural awareness, and sisterhood. “We are so very proud of our alumnae for continuing to build a strong foundation for future generations of alumnae,” said Gina Nuñez, National President of the NBOD. “Our graduate members and groups are integral to our organization’s development.”
WSIAC was established in September 2012 with 5 members and have now grown to 13 members. With hopes of engaging more alumnae and increasing their involvement with their chapter philanthropy, Mutual Ground, Phi Delta members are thrilled for their journey ahead. “We are very excited and thankful to have been granted chapter status. We have been committed to setting and achieving goals with hopes of receiving this great opportunity,” said Rosalinda Niño, Phi Delta President. “We look forward to continuing to give back to our communities, collaborating with other chapters, and representing our organization to the best of our abilities.”
The mission of alumnae and alumnae entities of Gamma Phi Omega is to promote education by empowering communities, leading social change and investing in philanthropic endeavors; to make a positive impact on the organization and society through innovation in professionalism, mentorship, diversity and kinship experiences.
