  • Theta Phi Alpha e-News: 2014-9 (Issue 67)


    2014-2015 Annual Alumnae Dues

    Paying your Annual Alumnae Dues is an opportunity for you to give back in a simple and meaningful way to Theta Phi Alpha.  A minimum contribution of $50 makes you an alumna in good standing, allows you to serve as a National Officer, and keeps your name on the mailing list for The Compass and other communication!


    Again this year, alumnae with updated addresses with the Fraternity will receive personalized Theta Phi Alpha address return labels.  Alumnae who contribute $50 or more by November 15, 2014 will be entered to win roundtrip airfare to the 2016 Theta Phi Alpha Convention in St. Louis, MO.  Those who contribute at least $75 by this date will also receive an additional set of Theta Phi Alpha personalized address labels (while supplies last).  In continuing the popular Theta Phi Alpha Alumnae Dues Charms program, the first 100 donors of at least $100 will receive a limited edition 2014-2015 charm.  Additionally, those who give $200 or more will also receive a copy of Living Our History, a commemorative history book celebrating Theta Phi Alpha’s Centennial.
