EAF Giving Tuesday

December 1st is EAF Giving Tuesday! Don’t forget to send in your $19.08!


Sorors, it's that time again.  December 1st is EAF Giving Tuesday! Once again, Zeta Omega's goal is to raise $2,000 to reach platinum status. To reach our goal, we ask that every soror in Zeta Omega donate $19.08 by December 1, 2020.  The money raised will be used as our donation for recognition at the 2021 North Atlantic Regional Conference.  The mission of the Educational Advancement Foundation (EAF) is to promote lifelong learning. This is our opportunity as a Chapter to enhance that effort.  

Please make checks payable to the Pearls of Hope Foundation, Inc.,* and mail to P.O. Box 7184, Wilmington, DE 19803.  You may also pay via PayPal to pohfoundation@yahoo.com.  PayPal fees are 2.9% + 0.30.  If paying with PayPal, please submit a donation amount of $19.93.  
*Paying through our Foundation may enable you to take a tax deduction for your contribution.  Please speak with your tax advisor to ascertain the appropriate deduction.


Thank you in advance, sorors, for helping Zeta Omega reach Platinum!!!!!

NARC UPDATE

NARC – March 4th-7th, 2021
Bylaw Changes

Any bylaw changes that chapters or general members want to be considered at the 2021 regional conference must be sent to the Regional Director by December 1, 2020.  If the proposed amendment is approved at the regional level, it must then be reviewed by the National Constitution Committee, the Directorate, and circulated to all regions.  As a result, it cannot be presented to the Boule until 2022.  (Refer to the Manual of Standard Procedure page 55).
Thank you.
