SEPC is the Southeast Panhellenic Conference. Young women leaders, all of whom are sorority members, from campuses around the country, gather each spring in Atlanta to explore new ideas, gain valuable skills and meet Panhellenic sisters. In addition to the collegiate women, campus sorority advisors and alumnae members of the 26 NPC member organizations attend to provide guidance and insight. This was my second year representing Alpha Chi Omega's NPC delegation at SEPC.
After enjoying a casual social dinner with the other NPC representatives, it was time for the Opening Session with Mari Ann Callais. Her topic, from Ritual to Reality, was fun and interactive with lots of input from the audience. In this picture, Mari Ann has 6 volunteers helping lead a sing along!source
I was impressed by how many collegians could speak knowledgeably about their sorority founders and the reasons they felt inspired by the values of their organizations!
Next on our agenda was the Affiliation Meet and Greet. During this session we broke up into individual sororities so the women could all meet each other. It was great to see a number of women I met last year (as well as in Texas in January) and to make new friends. In this photo I am using Smitha's Cleveland Magazine cover as a visual reminder to set lofty goals. [My AXO chapter sister, Smitha, was featured as one of the top doctors in the Cleveland area on the cover of the March 2012 issue of Cleveland Magazine.]source
After the meet and greet, we took a group photo. For me, it was time to head back to my room and get organized for Friday.
Coming tomorrow - day 2.
