Message from the Presidents

 

 

Our 2020 was certainly memorable with both blessings and disappointments all rolled into one.  So, we are excited to begin 2021 with a fresh start and a purpose to move our alumni chapter forward by evolving to meet the changing needs of our members while maintaining the core principles of our founders.  

We see our purpose as one that provides both personal and professional networking.  It is where we can share the wealth of knowledge, skills and abilities we each have with other members of our organization. We are a safe place for women to gather who are all different, but have a common desire to to support each other.  We are a place for you to foster new friendships, stay connected to old friends, serve others through philanthropies, and have fun!

Having fun comes in many forms! Enjoy Night Owls where you can have a glass of wine or just dine at an eclectic venue you may not have ventured to before.  Attend an Owl-Meet-You-for-Lunch gathering where we share lunches at cool, centrally located restaurants allowing you to pop in from work, laugh, socialize and be back to finish your day.  Serve others together by participating in one of our monthly philanthropy outreach opportunities.

Throughout the year, we will have three main evening events where Chi O’s of all ages and stages can come together to socialize, network and learn about current programs and opportunities offered by different Chi Omega committees.

We want to express our gratitude to all of you who have already joined and especially those who have been willing to serve with us this year.  We are thankful for your experience, energy and joyful enthusiasm and we are ready to begin.   

To be a part of this dynamic and powerful group of women, click  http://chiomegahouston.com/join-us 

We hope you will choose to join us at any one or more of the many offerings throughout the year. We are better together! 

Sandy Sandstedt Carlton (Xi Kappa, 1978) and Angela Wheat Cheves (Iota, 1982)
