To our surprise, Alpha Omicron Pi chose to hold the 2017 National Convention in Washington, DC. Being as to how close we are to Washington, DC our LC got the amazing opportunity to attend convention as a whole!
Surrounded by sisters from all over the country and Canada, convention was full of amazing events for everyone to attend. These events included seminars, workshops, a ritual with thousands of sisters, a Washington Nationals baseball game, Rose Ball, and an awards ceremony.
At the awards ceremony, Gamma Alpha was honored with seven awards from headquarters, the most in ΓA history! Our alumna, Ashleigh Bennett, was also awarded with the Mary Louise Roller Award. This award honors the collegian who provides outstanding service and leadership to her local Panhellenic, campus, and community. We are so proud of our chapter for all they have achieved!
"I loved convention because we had the unique opportunity this year of having it close to home in DC. This meant that our Leaders Council could attend too and it made me so happy to see my officers inspired by Alpha Omicron Pi on an international level. It was also amazing to see how far Gamma Alpha has come and how much we've achieved in the past years."
