Enhancing the New Member Experience with the Eta Alpha Chapter

by Rachel Ray in Impact

At Leadership Conference, Alpha Phi Foundation announced the recipient of the 2020 Susan Brink Sherratt Leadership Grant: Eta Alpha—New Hampshire!

This $2,500 grant will fund a transformative leadership program for their entire chapter to experience. With a specific focus on building relationships across member classes, this program focuses on strengthening the individual member and the chapter as a whole. The women of Eta Alpha chapter have expressed a desire to improve their communication and problem-solving skills to help them be better leaders, while also fortifying the working relationships across their sisterhood.

It is vitally important to the Eta Alpha chapter that their new members feel welcome and at home. After the new member class joins in the fall, the chapter will invite field experts to campus to facilitate the leadership training program. “We need our new members to feel like sisters from the moment they receive their bids, and this fund will provide us with the opportunity to do this,” said Chapter President, Claudia Fox (Eta Alpha—New Hampshire).

The Susan Brink Sherratt Leadership Fund was established in 2004 by Renee Smith Zimmerman Zainer (Beta Epsilon-Arizona) to honor Susan Brink Sherratt (Beta Beta—Michigan State) and her admirable leadership and service to Alpha Phi. Through the generous support of Susan and her family, this fund continues to provide an annual grant to an established collegiate chapter for leadership training, team building activities, and sisterhood events that help further the well-being of the chapter.

The 2020 grant to Eta Alpha marks 13 chapters awarded through the Susan Brink Sherratt Leadership Fund.
