February Message

Jessica Aguirre
VP of Public Relations

Happy New Year! As 2014 came to a close, I thought back on all the amazing memories I made as a member of this chapter. I made it a goal to attend as many events as possible, and as a result I found that I grew so much closer to my alumnae sisters. I took on a new leadership role that has helped me feel more connected to our chapter, and has helped me further develop communication skills that I use in my everyday life. I even had the chance to meet other gamma phi alumnae in my same career field, and received some incredible advice and insight! 

As you move forward this year with your own personal and professional resolutions, I encourage you to resolve yourself to strengthen your bonds to Gamma Phi Beta! This past year I have learned that it is only through active participation that we reap the true benefits of lifelong Gamma Phi membership. Come try a new restaurant at one of our dining sisterhoods, or get to know a new sister at a chapter meeting or philanthropy event! I am so excited to see what this year has in store for us, and to watch our Long Beach Alumnae Chapter continue to thrive and grow in 2015. 

Please let us know if you have any feedback or questions. We want to hear from you!

It's only $25 per year to join our chapter!

By paying your alumnae dues, you ensure the traditions of membership and lifelong benefits sustain our ever-growing and ever-changing sisterhood.

*Please note:* 
Your alumnae dues payment falls within the Sorority's fiscal year, running August 1 to July 31.

Sister Spotlight

LB Alumna Makes LA Galaxy Star Squad! 

We are so proud that one of our very own Long Beach alumnae, Nikki Bacon, has recently been chosen to be a member of the LA Galaxy Star Squad! Nikki was one of only 14 women chosen to represent the Galaxy MLS team this year. When asked about her audition experience,  Nikki commented, "The auditions took place in the beginning of December at the Stub Hub Center. A few days later, I received an exciting phone call to inform me that i was one of the women selected for the 2015 Star Squad team! I will be representing the LA Galaxy at home games and also making tons of community appearances throughout the year. The team is very philanthropic and I'm excited to continue to give back in new ways, in addition to my efforts made with the Long Beach Alumnae Chapter of Gamma Phi Beta."

We look forward to cheering for Nikki at one of our upcoming La Galaxy sisterhoods later this year! 

February Chapter Meeting

We had such a great time sharing some Valentine's Day love with all our sisters at our February monthly chapter meeting. We took the time to create some beautiful Valentine's Day cards for all of our paid Long Beach Alumnae members, which will soon be arriving to a mailbox near you! Vice President of Programming, Jordan Casto, lead a fun-filled ritual PACE to help sharpen our knowledge on all things Gamma Phi Beta! We can't wait to see everyone at our next chapter meeting on March 4th!  

Collegiate Happenings

The new year meant the start of a new semester for our Gamma Eta sisters. Here's an update from Gamma Eta's collegiate-alumnae relations chair, Bridget Bacon:
"We are excited to be back at school and will be welcoming roughly 10 new members this Spring. Renovations have started on the chapter house. It's been a  little bit of a change having our meetings on campus for this semester, but we can't wait to see the end result of our house being completely remodeled!"
