You should have received an email from the International Executive Board regarding more guidance on how to reopen our chapter meetings. Please check your spam folder if you did not receive the email. This is exciting news and an exciting time as we get to move forward with our chapter business and get back to some normal. While we get to move forward in a safe environment, I acknowledge for some of us, these new guidelines may be hard to accept.
What I ask you to think about as you go forward is what IS STILL THE SAME. We still are sisters that are united in a sisterhood that supports each and every one of us. We believe in education for women and supporting them through our monetary and personal support. We live our lives following our objects and aims and we believe in our 5 virtues – Faith, Love, Purity, Justice, and Truth. What is changing is how we do P.E.O. The how will ebb and flow until we can get back to some of our old “hows”. At the same time, we have an opportunity to be creative on the “how” which could influence our “new norm” in the future.
As you review the video and check out the information on the Michigan State website on the COVID-19 tab, please let anyone on the executive board know what questions you have. Keep in mind that some of the hows are still to come from International by mid-August. The board will also be reaching out to you over the next weeks in some way – so stay tuned.
Here are some toplines from the information provided you today:
Know we are all in this together and together we will go many places over the next year.
