Annual Meeting

2024 Annual Meeting Recap

The Rochester Alumnae Panhellenic met on Saturday, April 20th at Glendoveers for their 100th Annual Meeting and Spring Luncheon. The first spring luncheon was held May 10, 1924 with 77 attendees representing 12 sororities. Our charter was issued by the National Panhellenic Conference on May 1, 1925, so we are kicking off our 100th year celebration!

Sara Cronin, Phi Beta Phi and 2023-2024 RAP President opened the annual meeting and summarized the succesful year including our focus on social events and our Support our Scholars in November.

It is also customary to honor the philanthropy of the outgoing RAP President at the spring luncheon. Pi Beta Phi ‘s national philanthropy is literacy and our speaker, Juli Westrich, Delta Gamma and local librarian, presented “Pages of Change: Exploring the Evolving Role of Libraries in Promoting Literacy”. Locally, Pi Beta Phi has also supported food banks in our area and attendees to the annual meeting brought food items and toiletries that will be donated to The Pantry at SUNY Brockport. Food insecurity among college students is a consistent issue across all the SUNY schools and beyond.
