Letter From The Corporation President: Kristen Felicione

Happy Spring to my Alumni Sisters,

Spring is a time for new beginnings! With that in mind, the Clio Corporation has a big change coming! I am sad to announce I will be stepping down as President of the Clio Corporation; but I am so pleased to announce that my pledge sister and best friend Brooke Adams has taken over this role!

It has been my pleasure to serve you all as President for the past four years, especially during our 140thanniversary celebration! There have been some great changes to the Corporation during my tenure, including the addition of the Sorority Alumni Liaison position to the Clio Corporation which has improved our relationship with the actives, “The Stage” feature in the Museletter to encourage networking among alumni, and our new Clio website! I would like to thank all of the members of the Corporation who have served with me, both past and present, who dedicated lots of time and effort to accomplish these goals! It was so lovely getting to know all of you and I appreciate all your work!

When I started as Clio Corporation President, I was living alone in Auburn, NY, serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA for a year, and had a lot of time on my hands to dedicate to the Corporation. Now, four years later, my job and personal life have become much more time consuming than I ever planned! Many of you know I will be getting married in October and planning for a wedding in New York while living in Virginia has proven to take more time than I thought. I know the next few months of my life are going to be hectic, and I do not have time to dedicate to my role and to all of you. I feel it is only fair to resign and give the position to someone has the drive and motivation to make big things happen for us!

Luckily, that person is lined up and ready to start today! Brooke has been serving as Vice President for a few years, and is ready to kick it up to high gear as President. She has tons of great ideas and I’m excited to see what she has in store.

Additionally, I’m happy to announce Jill Scalzo will be taking over the Vice President role! Jill has been serving as our Treasurer and is excited to step into a new role and utilize her leadership skills.

Those of you who know Brooke and Jill know they are two highly motivated women who aren’t afraid of a little hard work if it means big achievements!

Luckily, this isn’t good bye! I will always be tied to all of my sisters by daisies, gold and white! Wishing you all the best!

Love-in-Clio,

Kristen

Clio Alumni Sister Keg (NYC)

Hello Clios! We are excited to say the Alumni Sister Keg in NYC had a great turnout! We had about 25 people in attendance, and although we were a few under the minimum headcount requirement, we were still able to break even with the venue’s cost! Everyone seemed to enjoy the get-together and open bar, while supporting the Clio Corporation. We were able to meet up with some DKs in the area, while wearing daisies in our hair– just like in college! It was definitely a successful start to plenty more fundraising events in the future. If you have any suggestions on where another reunion fundraising event should be, please reach out to Jacqueline Thompson at jlthompson.315@gmail.com. So far, she has looked into Rochester, NY and Boston, MA. Clio Alumni Sister Keg 2014- NYC   Thank you!
