Yes, it's that time again ... time for the Annual Business Meeting and Luncheon of the Alumnae Association being held this Saturday, April 18th at the Sheraton Center City in Philadelphia. Are YOU coming?
Many of you have written about the changes and challenges faced by GHS today. You've asked how to stay better informed and how to support our mission. As of today, however, the pace of meeting registration has been rather slow.
I am writing to strongly encourage your attendance at our annual business meeting! While traditionally, the focus is on reunion and reconnection, circumstances surrounding Girls High and indeed, public education in general, is such that we have changed the format of the gathering to a focus on informing and discussing. We are initiating an open Q&A session to ensure that all have an opportunity to have their voices heard.
As I mentioned in an earlier message, we are also adding a focus on increasing membership engagement and participation, and at the luncheon all will have an opportunity to join association committees and get engaged.
Certainly, some of you have prior engagements and/or the distance to travel will prevent your attendance. Don't worry!! We have other ways for you to participate. Stay tuned for upcoming details!
However, for those in the area, we'd love to see you! If you have not yet registered, sign up TODAY! We make it easy to do so on the Events Page here on our website.
Sisters: we, the school and our little sisters need you! Come to share your thoughts, ideas, talents and bask for a while in that Intangible Spirit! Come on Out!
See you Saturday!
Girls High. Always.
Antoinette (Toni) Bailey Nottingham
President, The Alumnae Association
