I flew to Atlanta on June 25 to begin job training for my new position as an Alpha Delta Pi Leadership Consultant, which included attending our biannual national leadership seminar. I was also privileged to attend this seminar as an emerging leader for my chapter two years ago, so it was neat being back at the same hotel with many of the same programs and facilitators. I wrote about my experience with the IMPACT program two years ago on the ADPi Leadership Seminar blog here if you want more details.

My name tag at the end of the conference.
Each year, the incoming Leadership Consultants get special "Violet Sisters" — an outgoing LC who provides support for the new consultant throughout the year. On the first day of the conference, my Violet Sister sent me an anonymous violet, which I was ecstatic about. But I had to wait until Sunday morning for our Violet Sister reveal, and I was so excited to find out mine is Brett! I assumed they had chosen their Violet Sisters because Brett and I are so similar, but they actually picked our names out of a hat. I couldn't be happier that she chose my name. :)
On Saturday, we traveled to Macon, Georgia, to learn about our sorority's history. I actually visited last year when I was an intern, but it was fun to share this experience with the chapter advisors and other LCs.

Finally, I was also featured on the Being Greek blog created by The Observant Turtle's Whitney last week. Check it out here.
What have you been up to this summer? Stay tuned for a recap of my lakeside Fourth of July holiday to be posted later this week.
