Raleigh/Cary DG Alumnae |  March 2016 Newsletter

Out With the Lion, In With the Lamb

The weather has not been our friend lately! We have had to cancel two events due to weather in the last month and a half. The alumnae heart still beats fast as many of you have filled out the new member form, paid your dues, emailed us about Founders Day details, or wanted to be included in our email list! We are excited as always to meet more alumnae that have moved to the area. The Triangle Founders Day event is ONE MONTH AWAY! Please be sure to read the details and click on the registration link below. We look forward to our yearly celebration of our Founders and sharing in sisterhood and friendship!

Are You LinkedIn?

We have a new group on LinkedIn and it is slowly growing! The Raleigh/Cary DG Alumnae Association is hoping to build a great network for our senior Eta Kappa collegians. Would you be willing to send us your LinkedIn profile to share? We plan on providing the seniors with a list of alumnae profiles, then in turn sending out a resource to you all with the collegian profiles for further networking. We are excited for this new collaboration with the collegians! 

You can add your LinkedIn profile HERE!

Light refreshments will be served. The collegians appreciate any advice you can offer!
