A Perpetual Bond of Friendship
2019-2020 Administrative President Marybeth Flaherty and Alumnae Experience President Whitney Rape
Dear Tri Delta Sisters,
We are honored and excited to serve as your co-presidents for the 2019-2020 year. The Houston Alumnae Chapter has a long history of being one of the largest and most active Tri Delta alumnae chapters around the country and is seen as an example for other alumnae chapters, not only nationally, but locally by other sororities alumnae chapters.
This year our goal is to Grow and Have Fun! We are striving to increase our number of dues paying members to reach 600 and to have all of our members participate in at least one event, interest group meeting or by being a volunteer for the SALE, our philanthropic fundraising organization which in 5 short years since beginning has raised and donated over $1 million dollars to further pediatric cancer research right here in Houston. All of the opportunities offered on our calendar give us the chance to have fun and enrich our Tri Delta experience.
Tri Delta is for a lifetime and having you be a part of our alumnae chapter is important to us. We thank you for being a part of our alumnae chapter and for paying your dues for the 2019-2020 year. We look forward to sharing all that our sisterhood offers during the coming year as we Grow and Have Fun!

Levels of Membership
Our Houston Alumnae Chapter is strong and growing. We are very fortunate to have so many wonderful young women joining Tri Delta at the collegiate level every year. Membership dues help support both local alumnae chapter activities, collegiate activities and the national organization, thus supporting the framework of Houston Tri Delta for future generations.
We respect the fact that our members' level of involvement within their alumnae lifetime will vary. There are no required meetings or required “hours.” We will be here when you are ready to jump in! Taking the initiative to join by paying membership dues helps ensure a lasting sustained local alumnae chapter.
The Advantage of Becoming a Dues Paying Member
Dues paying members are invited to participate in all chapter-wide events and programs; from wine tastings, to cultural/education programs, to festive parties. Dues paying members receive:
Invitations, reminder postcards, or evites several weeks prior to each chapter-wide event as well as an email reminder
The monthly chapter newsletter with great articles and pictures of events
Access to the digital chapter directory and Members Only side of our website
It is never too late to join! There is an August 1st deadline for your listing in the directory, but you may join at any time to take advantage of the many fun alumnae activities throughout the year.
