Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday's Delegate Training Workshop. What a great way to kick off the year! We had 35 people in attendance and all but one sorority represented. Delegates and alternates, you should be receiving an email soon with the materials. Here are the pictures Deirdre Reason Hill took, including our selfie! Note to self, don't talk about taking a selfie while actually taking a will make you look crazy :0 I'm going to have to try the selfie-thing again at the September meeting.

Bonnie Pennington Great training session - thanks to our Exec Board fpr making this happen!

I work at a university and a situation has come up where a student says she cannot attend a peer-leadership training that is academic in nature because of "rush." She is claiming that if she misses the "rush" activity scheduled at the same time as the workshop, she'll be fined $750.

I was under the impression that Panhellenic groups can no longer assess fees and fines beyond membership and housing. Does anyone know if this is true?

Adrienne Duncan (Note: Elaine, I reposted your comment without the personal contact information in the original. Great idea forwarding to Kris, who is probably reading this right now as well. :-) )
Ken Elaine Grizzle: Andrea, I am going to forward your email to Kris Bridges, Past President of Phi Mu and very knowledgeable on all things Panhellenic and Recruitment. She is a wonderful resource. She lives in Dunwoody and has been the Phi Mu rep to Atlanta Panhellenic for some time.

It's not a nice subject but this happens on campus and at parties. There may be an additional tool women can use to protect themselves.

Happy Saturday, all! The upgraded AAPA website is live! Take a moment and browse around. You'll notice there is a much stronger emphasis on social media and the day-to-day workings of Panhellenic and our member sororities. So please, share!
DELEGATES: there is probably a bunch of info that needs to be updated on your member pages. Make sure your directory info is up to date with Exec Board. EB will be sending me the digital copy of the directory as it goes to press so updates will be made from that document. There is no need to email me your delegate/chapter president updates. (Read: please don't send them....) Updates to alumna chapter award listings and social media links will be made *after the first meeting in September*, along with any directory changes made between now and then. Annual member updates are a big job so help me to help you get them done in two easy (?) batches.
See you in September!

Connie Pope Great job, Adrienne Duncan! Thank you for all you do to support AAPA!

I am planning to have an online fundraiser for Sisters for Scholars in the Fall but I wanted to give you all a chance to become familiar with the products before promoting them to your network. I personally don't promote/recommend anything that I haven't tried to friends/family/sisters :) This will be completely online. Like I tell my friends 'you want/need to shop so why not do it for a cause!!!' The signature item is the 3D Fiber Lashes - Drena has them so you can get a rec from her if you need to! All producst are 100% natural, never tested on animals, and most are gluten free!

The AAPA website is going to be closed for upgrades periodically over the next couple of days. If you see the "maintenance" screen: sit tight and it will be back up later.

Hi All! Your AAPA Webmaster is working on getting all of our information organized and ready to rock for our 2014/15 year! (There are some visual suprises on the horizon too - stay tuned!)

Today I need your help. The AAPA website posts formal recruitment dates for all GEORGIA colleges and universities. I ran through the list on our website, updating as many links as possible and posting formal recruitment dates and links to Panhellenic information for each one where available.

However, not all dates were posted by each school. Please take a look at the calendar page here: If your formal recruitment info is correct, we're golden. If a date needs an update or if your school's info is missing, please contact me using PM here on Facebook or use the form on the "Contact" page of the website to send me the dates and a link to your school's recruitment info.

Don't forget to post more info about your formal recruitment here!
Hope you're all having a great summer!

Adrienne Duncan, Phi Mu
Webmaster, Atlanta Panhellenic

Zeta Tau Alpha mourns the passing of Deb Ensor, our beloved Executive Director since 1985. She passed away this morning (Friday, July 18) in Indianapolis after a brave battle against ovarian cancer.

Deb’s leadership, vision and passion shaped our Fraternity for four decades. She taught us to “Seek the Noblest” and leaves a legacy of love and values to her ZTA sisters and the interfraternal world.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her mother and brother and all whose lives she touched. Read more about Deb’s legacy and make a contribution in her memory here:

Fraternity and sorority members are significantly more engaged in their workplace and overall happier than students who were not part of a Greek organization, according to a new survey from Gallup.
