Hi! My name is Keeley Naylor and I am the Panhellenic Philanthropy Chair. With the semester winding down, chapters across campus are wrapping up their spring philanthropy events and buckling down for dead week and finals week! That being said, Panhellenic will be having our final meeting next week during dead week to vote on the changes that are being made to our Executive Council elections. These changes would make the Panhellenic delegate position a one year commitment and allow for the Executive Council positions to be open to members of the chapters that have served as a chapter officer, Panhellenic delegate, or Gamma Chi. At meeting on Monday, all of the Panhellenic delegates and Executive Council members also wrote letters to our advisors to thank them for all of their amazing work! Seeing as next week is dead week, Panhellenic is planning to hand out popsicles to students outside of Bowman’s Den!

Hi! My name is Allie Deuel and I am a Panhellenic Delegate at Large for my chapter and serve on the Panhellenic Executive Board! This week, our Panhellenic council met at the Delta Zeta house. A new vice chairmen of the Panhellenic Judicial Board was voted on and was won by Annie Arnold! Congrats to Annie! Along with that, some final planning and announcements were made that we’re all very excited for!

This month is the Month of the Woman! Hannah Went, our programming chair, and the rest of the executive council has put in a lot of work to plan various events for this month. The most upcoming event is the Women’s Day of Service on March 26th which will be held at Whitehall from 12pm-2pm. This event will include different activities such as a can food drive and making blankets. This is followed by the Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Program on March 29th at Memorial Hall starting at 7pm. Speaker Logan Davis will be talking about Domestic Violence! Also, be sure to stop by the UK Women’s Tennis Match on March 31st to show support and pick up some free goodies! Keep an eye out for more fun events coming up around campus during this month! 

We are so proud to be able to celebrate and represent during the Month of the Woman with you all as Panhellenic women! Have a great first week back from spring break!

Hey y’all! My name is Annie Arnold and I am the Leadership Chair on the 2017 Panhellenic Executive Board! This week our Panhellenic meeting was held at the Alpha Phi House. Our Vice President of Organization and Judicial Board Chair, Katie Conway, held a Judicial Board mock trial for the full council. They were given an example of a scenario that the Judicial Board would typically face with a chapter and then went on to explain how they would handle the situation and determine consequences for that said chapter. It was very beneficial to the council to see how the J-Board process works!

This month we are in the process of putting on “Month of the Woman.” Hannah Went, our Programming Chair, has organized an event to attend which is a UK Women’s Tennis match that will be held on March 31st at 6:00 p.m. In addition to this, we will also be hosting an event with NPHC, IFC and UGC on March 29th in Memorial Hall where speaker Logan Davis will be talking about Domestic Violence Awareness. Be sure to be on the lookout for more events coming up during Month of the Woman!

At the end of the month, Dean West and I will be taking the Panhellenic Council delegates to the Coalition for Collegiate Women’s Leadership, formerly known as the South Eastern Panhellenic Conference. This conference gives the chapter delegates an opportunity to develop strong leadership skills that they can bring back not only to their respective chapters, but our Panhellenic Council as well. I have also placed each member of the full council on a committee to implement the NPC report suggestions and they will be assigned to those committees after spring break.

Amy Nutt, our Diversity and Inclusion Chair, is organizing a Women’s Day of Service that will be held on March 26th. On this day, the Panhellenic community will be going to a local nonprofit organization to serve the Lexington community. She is also in the process of selecting applicants to serve on her committee this semester! The application closes the Friday of Spring Break, interviews will be held the week of March 20th, and the first meeting will be March 29th at 8 p.m.

We hope y’all have a fun and safe Spring Break next week! Enjoy the sunshine and your time off!

Hi everyone! I'm Anna Fitzhugh and I'm the Inter-Sorority Relations Chair on the Panhellenic Executive Board! Panhellenic meets every Monday from 3:30-4:00 pm at different sorority houses! The goal of this newsletter is to keep you all updated on the different happenings within Panhellenic and on our campus! 

March is really exciting for us as we are planning Month of the Woman, with our Programming Chair, Hannah Went. This month Panhellenic is going to be hosting a variety of events to empower Panhellenic, NPHC, UGC, and all women on our campus, so be on the lookout for that announcement! 

We received back the report from when NPC was here on campus doing a consultation. Annie Arnold, the Leadership Chair, was elected by Panhellenic to oversee the implementation of their suggestions! She told us about how she went over the suggestions from the NPC report with the NPC Committee and that she thinks creating committees within Panhellenic to implement their suggestions would be the best way to make those changes! 

Panhellenic will be tabling and presenting at the upcoming Merit Weekends. Merit Weekend is an opportunity for academically successful incoming freshman to do their orientation early and get first-priority registration!  It? s a really great way to start talking with incoming students about Greek Life and Recruitment! 

Our Panhellenic is applying for a few different awards at the Coalition for Collegiate Women? s Leadership Annual Conference. Each year our Panhellenic delegates and a couple of Executive members are attending in March. We decided to apply for Risk Management, Philanthropy, and Leadership Development awards at the conference! 

The Junior Panhellenic Chair, Hannah Rajan told us her great idea of having chapters submit image boards for their Bid Day theme ideas and she would approve them on a first come first serve basis. 

This year, Amy Nutt, the Diversity and Inclusion Chair, will be holding the Diversity and Inclusion committee that she is so excited about! The creation of that committee is going to be crucial for all four Greek councils on our campus to be more integrated and involved in each other's activities.

Panhellenic voted on recruitment guidelines. and all were approved, with a few amendments. The amendments were to clarify exactly what financial information was to be in the promotional video put out by each chapter and to have the chapters  dress more casual on Bid Day!
