SAN FRANCISCO ALUMNAE CHAPTER NEWSLETTER September 2003 Greetings Delta Gammas! Last year was truly amazing – our website was revamped, more exciting and relevant programming was planned, and our membership doubled in size. And this year promises to build on these successes. If you are interested in becoming more involved, we are looking for motivated DG alums to take on the positions of Chapter Treasurer and Chapter Historian. Anyone who is interested, please contact me at email@example.com. Looking forward to another great year! And please remember to fill out & send the included dues form by 10/15. In the bonds, Meredith Papp San Francisco Alumnae Chapter President CONGRATULATIONS to the DGs at UC Berkeley! Their hard work during recruitment has paid off with 29 wonderful new members who will be initiated on October 7th. The chapter met quota and got all of their favorite women, including three legacies (two of them Gamma Chapter legacies!). The whole chapter came together to pull off an amazing recruitment spearheaded by Jenny Jack (VP: Membership), Lauren Goss (President), Jessica Duwe (Director of Sponsorship), Kim Schepman (Recruitment Advisor) and Patti Scotti-Baird (Recruitment Advisor). A BIG thank you to all of the SF DG alums who lent a helping hand: Heather Drennan, Meghan Flannigan, Fiona Hsu, Marla Kingston, Callie Micks, Meredith Papp, Trish Preble, Patti Scotti- Baird and Michelle Tajirian.
