The Parents’ Club serves an important role in the success of our daughters’ sorority experience.
Per the GPBPC bi-laws of 2003—
“The purpose of the Gamma Phi Beta Parents Club is to collectively support our daughters and their sorority sisters”
Our goal – to help them have the BEST sorority experience on campus through
collective (CONNECTION) + support (SERVICE)
A letter from the Parents’ Club President:
This is a year to reignite the Parents Club involvement.
I am excited to assume the role of President of the Gamma Phi Beta Parents Club with support of Vice President, Patty Nersesian, Secretary/Treasurer: Dayna Jones, Communications Chair: Marilyn O’Connor, and… those of you who have signed up and/or want to be more involved.
Together we want to see the Parents Club become what is was initially chartered to do in 2003, but lost momentum as the roles and needs changed for the sorority. For those of you that were able to attend the Mother Daughter weekend in February and/or the Daddy/Daughter day in April…You know that our focus is CONNECTION + SERVICE.
