#AKANARC2018

The Ladies of the Powerful Pi Mu Omega Chapter attended our 87th North Atlantic Regional Conference in New York. From servicing the community in style at the New York Food Bank in Harlem to recognizing the contributions of New Yorkers who address community needs at our Region’s Public Meeting, it was truly an outstanding experience from beginning to end.

We are honored to highlight a few of the AKAlades our chapter received at this year’s Conference:

 Chapter President Azzmeiah Vázquez Ward was awarded 2nd Place PRESIDENT OF THE YEAR – SMALL CHAPTER at the North Atlantic Regional Conference!

 Educational Advancement Fund (EAF) – chapter achieved PLATINUM STATUS for our charitable contributions to help promote lifelong learning. This is the 2nd year in a row for our chapter to receive this special recognition.

 Chapter President Azzmeiah Vázquez Ward and Chapter Member Donyelle Shorter was selected by North Atlantic Regional Director Meredith Henderson to be a panelist at a Regional workshop to share their wisdom, best practices and tips for those in attendance.

Some chapter members had the privilege to march in the Legacy Parade with their daughters, nieces, aunts, parents and grandparents to celebrate their family’s legacy of lifelong sisterhood.

 Our chapter celebrated true dedication and 50+ years lifelong membership of our 2 new Golden Gems at a special chapter dinner hosted by Chapter Member Donna Eorange. Congratulations to our new Golden Gems Elizabeth Burress and Mary Shorter for reaching your 50+ milestone of “service to all mankind”!

 Our chapter also received a certificate for NURTURING THE IVY and promoting excellent Sisterly Relations activities.

Our chapter would also like to congratulate the 87th North Atlantic Regional Conference Chairman Andrea R. Webster and our Regional Director Meredith Henderson on an amazing conference – we thank you for your service!  We would also like to thank you our Community Sponsors and Partners for helping us reach for the stars and supporting us to serve our community.
