Danielle will be sending out an interest form for alumni to sign up to help during the week of recruitment. We are allowed to have ten alumni at the house to assist in how the party is being ran with in the house, and to help if an issue arises. If we have more than ten alumni interested in helping at a particular time we will just ask the floaters alumni to quietly stay in the kitchen, unless asked to assist other wise. The alumni who want to help will be helping with the door song, for when the collegiate numbers get light, they will also be helping with paper work, water, and mints that will be given out in between parties. Alumni will also be requested to wear outfits similar to that, that are required to be worn by the collegiate.

(Philanthropy Night will be a 30 minute party in length in which the Collegiate members will talk with Potential New Members (PNM) about our sorority's philanthropic events, as well as, small talk conversations where they will be able to get to know pnms they are matched with. There will be a short presentation where we will teach the pnm's for a little bit of fun.Outfit dark wash skinny jeans, and a mint, light pink, or white v-neck or fitted shirt)
(Values night will be a 45 minute party in length in which the chapter member will talk with a PNM about our sorority's values, Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service. The member is also encouraged to talk about their personal values, as well as the pnm's values. This night is all about conversation and truly getting to know what the pnm is looking for in a sorority/college experience, as well as what kind of member they would be for delta zeta.Outfit white pants, and a blush/light pink top)
(Preference night will be a 60 minute party in length in which the collegiate member will talk with the PNM about the intimate side of our chapter. The Collegiate is encourage to tell the pnm why delta zeta means something to them, why they stay, or how it has impacted their lives. This is the night that we will need to "close the deal." WE will need to know if the pnm thinks delta zeta is the right fit for them, and if we as a chapter believe we are the right fit for the pnm. Outfit black dress)
(Bid day, is the day we have all been waiting for! New Members!!!! Bids will be open at 2pm at the dz house, and the after party is at Jennie Oliver's house.)
Ashley and Myself are starting to get the gears rolling for alumni support during our weekend workshop on July 7th-9th. Alumni support has been requested on July 8th from 9-4 (lunch is provided) and July 9th from 1 to 3. During these times we will be focusing on one on one conversation practice for all three topics of recruitment. We will be doing Philanthropy, Values, and Preference conversations. Any and all help is requested. We are trying to have enough alumni there so that each collegiate women can practice conversations at least twice. That means we will need to have around 45 conversations going on at once.
I am asking that we try and have all hands on deck for this weekend. Old, new, young, or experienced DZ's are welcome! The attached google doc has a little bit more detail in the day break downs. Please if you can only come for 30 minutes to an hour do so, I promise every little bit will help!
