A Personal Invitation to Every Sister

Dear Sisters in Phi Lamb,

Your alumnae association needs your help!! In the past year, the Phi Lambda Phi Alumnae Association has grown to more than 100 members. Although that makes all of us on the Phi Lambda Phi Alumnae Association (PLPAA) Board very proud and happy, we can’t help but look at the almost 700 PLP lambs in our data base and wonder how we can get more of our sisters to actively join us.

As Vice President for Membership, I have a vision of contacting each sister we can locate and personally asking her to get involved with PLPAA by becoming a “supporting” member. In the small outreach I could accomplish on my own, I have tremendously enjoyed meeting my sisters from other eras old and new and getting them involved. Please help me and PLP…

I need sisters from each decade to assist me by reaching out to the sisters you know from your time periods. PLPAA will provide you with lists of sisters to call and/or contact by email or letter, a membership brochure so that you can tell them about how to join, a sample email you can send out, links to PLPAA’s website and Facebook page, and anything else you need to be successful.

Please consider becoming a part of this membership outreach. And we’d love it if you could recruit other sisters to help you make the contacts!! If we all do our best, we can build a very strong alumnae association that has influence at SUNY Oswego. This asset can greatly enhance the status of the active sisters.

Now, it goes without saying that “once a sister, always a sister,” so technically we are ALL members of PLPAA, but as a supporting/dues-paying member, it makes it possible for us to be pro-active with projects that include: preserving sorority traditions, collecting and preserving artifacts from the past in digital collections (including scrapbooks and composites), planning regional reunions and special events, publishing and mailing a newsletter, and supporting the active sisters in order to keep Phi Lamb as a vibrant organization on campus that supports young women during their college years.

Just email me to say yes!! Thank you in advance for your effort.

Love in Phi Lamb,
