Well, I'm back in the land of burritos and iced coffee, and while Italy was absolutely amazing, it feels good to be back....well kinda.
This past week, I jetted off to Tucson, Arizona where I represented the Northeastern Xi Upsilon Chapter at the biannual Delta Zeta National Convention. After arriving to the small Tucson airport quite late Tuesday night, I cabbed it over to the JW Starr Pass Marriott where I would be staying for the next week. For being in a desert, the views from the resort were absolutely amazing.
The next morning I donned my best blazer and statement necklace and got to work. The whole week consisted of formal business meetings, where we discussed and voted on changes made to our national documents. It was truly an eye-opening experience and I got to see a whole other side to Delta Zeta than I had ever seen.
I met some extraordinary sisters from across the nation and really benefitted from hearing what they had to say about their own chapters. OH! And also our chapter won the national award for new member education, which was a really big deal! I got to meet the National President and everything.
I'm now writing from the Tucson airport as I am 3 hours early for my flight (I'm always early) and while it was a life-changing week, I cannot wait to get out of the 110 degree heat!
