Azure Over AZ – Grand Convention 2015

The Nashville ADPi Alumnae Association was proud to have Sister President Megan represent us at the Grand Convention 2015. She travelled to Arizona to attend workshops, awards banquets, ritual and a few fun activities thrown in. Be watching for our newsletter in August where we will have more information about Sister Megan and Grand Convention! We did want to take a minute to brag on how well we did…the hard work of the 2014-15 Exec Board, Committee Chairs, and Sister President (ex officio) MaryDe did not go unnoticed!! Zeta Rho (Vanderbilt University) and our alumnae association received the highest honor – The Collumnae Partnership award. The NashvilleADPiAlums also won the Diamond 4 point ribbon with excellence and the Pi Pride ribbon for our association’s commitment to increasing membership, demonstrating leadership in our community, support of RMH, programming, and strong sisterhood. Here are a few photos from Megan’s trip. [spoiler – there were lots of Nashville sisters at convention!]

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the staff and families of the Nashville Ronald McDonald House, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for making the wonderful “fall goody bags!” It is such a nice treat for the families we serve. We appreciate everything you do for us and for your continued love and support of our mission.  Your kindness is truly a blessing here!

Thank you for understanding the importance of providing a place those families with seriously ill children can call “home for a while.”

Sincerely,

A Thank You from RMH

February 20, 2014

Alpha Delta Pi Nashville Alumnae


Dear Friends,

On behalf of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville, we want to thank you for bringing together such a great group of volunteers and providing supplies to help families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.  We appreciate your longtime support and your dedication to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville.

The 32-bedroom Nashville Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families with a critically ill child who is receiving treatment at a Nashville area hospital. Coping with a seriously ill child can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences a family may ever face.  For families having to travel long distances to hospitals for their child’s medical treatment, the strain is even more severe.  The Ronald McDonald House offers a great alternative to these families who would otherwise pay a large amount for a motel…or perhaps sleep in a hospital waiting room.

We appreciate you spending your morning cleaning, organizing, and disinfecting the Ronald McDonald House.  Thank you for helping us to continue to provide shelter, emotional support, understanding, and a homelike environment to the many families we serve each year.

Sincerely,

Kirra Menees

Volunteer Coordinator

30th Anniversary Video

The Alpha Delta Pi Foundation sent out an email today with the information below. We wanted to make sure all our NashvilleADPiAlums got to see it!

The Alpha Delta Pi Foundation’s 30th Anniversary Video: Our Donors

A few weeks ago, Dawn Victor-Herring, president of our Board of Trustees, wrote to you about the Alpha Delta Pi Foundation’s 30th anniversary.  She told you that over the past 30 years, we’ve grown into a robust organization that provides resources that benefit all of our collegiate and alumnae members.  She also invited you to view a special video about our history.

Today, we are excited to unveil the second video in our anniversary series.  We thought you might like to hear firsthand why our donors include the Foundation as a philanthropic priority in their personal giving.

Our success is made possible through the generosity of sisters like you.  If you have already given this fiscal year, we thank you.  If not, we hope you will join the thousands of sisters who step forward each year and support our Foundation with gifts that enable more women to experience the value of Alpha Delta Pi as a way of life.

Betty Brock is Honored by the Tennessee Society of Association Executives

photoThe Tennessee Society of Association Executives (TNSAE) announced the winners of its annual Awards of Excellence during a luncheon on July 19. Betty Brock was the recipient of the Association Executive of the Year, which recognizes a lifetime contribution to the profession of association management, through achievement with the individual’s own association, as well as service to TNSAE and other professional, civic and community organizations. Below are more details about this Nashville ADPi Alumnae Association member.  Violets to Sister Betty!

                                                                                                                                  

Winchester-native, Betty Brock, Tennessee Fuel & Convenience Store Association, was named Association Executive of the Year. The Association Executive of the Year is the highest recognition given by the Tennessee Society of Association Executives. Respected leaders of their own associations, recipients are women and men who contribute their time and expertise to other voluntary membership organizations and play an active role in civic and community affairs. They exemplify the very best in association management, continually bringing credit to the profession and to the entire association community.

Betty Brock, this year’s TNSAE Association Executive of the Year is a most appropriate selection in this year of the organization’s 50th Anniversary, as she has been an integral part of TNSAE’s life, having served as the first part-time and first full-time executive director of the Tennessee Society of Association Executives.

At TNSAE, Betty instituted many of the TNSAE programs we still enjoy today, including the Tradeshow and awards of excellence program. She successfully passed the CAE exam and mentored countless CAE candidates. When she left the association in 2003, she left it in a strong financial position, having increased association reserves by 90% during her tenure.

In the years since, Betty has continued to be involved in TNSAE, serving on the awards committee, as Tradeshow Committee co-chair and this year as chair of the 50th Anniversary Committee.

As a 33 year association management veteran, Betty has worked for several other associations, including the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association, the Southeastern Equipment Dealers Association, the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association and for the past four years, the Tennessee Fuel and Convenience Store Association.

Betty has volunteered for many organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House, OUR Kids, Nashville Young Leaders Council and the Nashville Human Association, and is a member of the Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, which has recognized her for her service.

Congratulations, Betty Brock!
