A Perpetual Bond of Friendship
2020-2021 Alumnae Experience President Jennifer Mathis and Administrative President Caroline Pavlinik
Dear Tri Delta Sisters,
As a young woman newly initiated in Tri Delta, it’s hard to imagine an existence beyond the collegiate experience. As a young alumnae, pondering life into the next decade seems daunting.
Now, as ten and 20 year alumnae of Tri Delta, we have had the opportunity through involvement in the Houston Alumnae Chapter to see clearly the lifetime value that Tri Delta gives its members. And because of that, we are honored and humbled to serve as your co-presidents for the 2020-2021 year.
Our Houston Alumnae Chapter is thriving. With nearly 450 dues paying members, vibrant special interest groups, four annual chapter-wide events, and a phenomenal philanthropic event, it’s safe to say that our organization is flourishing. Let’s go on like this!
Your membership in the Houston Alumnae Chapter is more than just a check. It is a pledge to perpetuate the legacy of our founders. It’s a promise to the young women destined for membership in Tri Delta -- that with their oath of membership, follows a lifetime opportunity to foster Tri Delta’s values of truth, self-sacrifice and friendship.
We are grateful for your continued membership, and with that, your enduring commitment to uphold and promote Tri Delta’s legacy.
Administrative President 2020-2021
Alumnae Experience President, 2020-2021
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.
