We welcomed the newest members of ZU with a photo posted on the (private) website. Of course everyone wanted to know how Recruitment went!!

We celebrated MacDowell Month, Alpha Chi Omega's time to focus nationally on fine arts appreciation. http://www.livejournal.com/community/mtm_axo/2278.html?view=742#t742 is a text copy of the message we sent to our members, to the collegians and posted online.

We sent the new ZU Exec board members gifts to say congratulations and good luck with their offices - cute thermal coffee mugs - perfect for winter in Cleveland. http://www.greekcreations.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=15 The funny thing was the first shipment contained Chi Omega mugs instead of Alpha Chi Omega ones. Fortunately Greek Creations corrected their mistake!!

We launched this blog!

And most importantly, we had our first MTM Exec Board meeting via chat. It took us awhile to get started - clients did not work as predicted (or if we could have predicted, we might have seen that Murphy's Law was after us - whatever could go wrong did go wrong!). The chat feature on myfamily.com uses a java console that wouldn't load for everyone so we went to AOL IM but not everyone had IM set up. We ended up on MSN IM and from there out things went beautifully and we got a lot accomplished - many plans set into motion and lots of ideas off the drawing board and into implementation. The transcript was 18 pages long! Among our long-range goals - setting up an e-card feature on our website with cards specifically targeted to AXO and ZU/Case, holding a contest with prizes to the sister who created the best graphics and flash files to use as e-cards, revamping our website to manage the e-card feature, publishing a newsletter over the summer, making some purchases requested by the spirit chair at ZU and the chapter president, new member gifts for the newbies at ZU (along with an introduction to MTM http://www.catholicsupply.com/christmas/19410.html), getting the fundraising committee going (lots of brainstorming about who might be able to participate), and providing long-distance support for the advisory board. It will probably take us awhile to implement some of these things but it was exciting to talk things out and get some of the plans sketched out in more detail! Thank you to Leila, Nikki, Heather and Erin who "attended" the meeting and Karen, Lisa and Jen who read the transcript and sent their comments in afterward.
