In the position of Recruitment Advisor, I facilitate on choosing Day themes. I help the day chairs choose colors, outfits, decorations, props, drink of the day and flowers for each round of recruitment. I also help with the flow of each round, as in how to get the potential new member (PNM) into the house and to their “spot”. If need be, I help with conversation tips and lead our actives on how to stand or sit while having a conversation with a PNM. I connect the chairs or the VP of Membership's team with vendors in town to insure Delta Zeta has the best items you need to recruit PNMs. I coordinate with our kitchen staff and all kitchen volunteers on how to achieve the drink of the day and get it out to the PNM. I keep up with all purchases we must have for each party. I attend all Panhellenic meetings so DZ is up to date on all rules of recruitment and any changes from APA or NPC. I am required by Nationals to be on all phone conferences that are now every week regarding recruitment. My role as Recruitment Advisor has evolved this year. I am now part of retention and have been asked to step up our COB process.
2. Who are the girls you advise & work with closely?
I advise the VP of Membership (Katie Beth Rice), Recruitment Chair (Skylar Zembla , Assistant Recruitment Chair (Alyssa Hajos), and all the Day Chairs (Olivia Paciga, Sophie Radetic, Megan Waldorf, Maddy Malloy and Marilyn Clark).
3. Why did you decided to become an advisor?
I decided to become an advisor when I moved back to Tuscaloosa almost 4 years ago. Plus, I was asked! Back in the day, I was the equivalent to the Recruitment Chair position, so I am very familiar with recruitment.
4. Why have you chosen to continue being so active with DZ after your collegiate years?
The reason I choose to help and participate with the active chapter is so simple...
DZ is more than 4 years!
