Message from the President

Dear Sisters in Chi Omega,

Welcome to the Chi Omega Alumnae Association of Houston! We stand side-by-side, honored and privileged to serve as Co-Presidents in 2019-2020. In Chi Omega, sisterhood is truly for a lifetime! Chi Omega will celebrate the 125thAnniversary of its founding, at the Biennial Convention to be held in Memphis, in the summer of 2020! Locally, we will celebrate our founding at our Eleusinian Banquet and with other events as the year unfolds. 

The Chi Omega Alumnae Association provides opportunities for members to celebrate our sisterhood, to gather in fellowship, and to serve our community throughout the year!  Your membership helps to ensure continued support for our local philanthropies, allows us to fund scholarships for Houston area collegiate Chi Omegas, and to present relevant and interesting programs to our membership.  There are countless ways for you to become involved!

Your membership in The Chi Omega Alumnae Association allows you access to all programs, general meetings, socials, collegiate recruitment involvement, Kaleidoscope event committees, volunteer opportunities at the Center of Pursuit and other venues, and so much more! Special interest groups include Chow Omega lunches, Travel Texas outings, Night Owls, Mom & Tots, cooking classes and other events. Please reach out to us at president@chiomegahouston.com with program or special event suggestions. We welcome your input! 

The four young women, who founded our Fraternity alongside Dr. Richardson, at the University of Arkansas, would be proud to know their vision of friendship and loyalty laid the foundation of our sisterhood today! The Houston Alumnae Association is made up of women of all ages, talents and interests. Join us…you belong here!

Loyally in Chi Omega,

Barbe Boland Bozeman   &    Dawn Ogletree Murphy
