Eta Tau/Tampa women united together to celebrate their recruitment accomplishments & welcome new members on Bid Day.
There is an old proverb which states, "It takes a village to raise a child." Simply put, it takes many hands and hearts to nurture and develop a child. Yes, each person can have a large influence on an individual; a child does not grow and learn without the aid of guardians, friends, educators, and community. Everyone whom the child encounters has the potential to make an impact.

The same is true in our college chapters. Each woman has the potential to aid the growth and development of her chapter. Can you imagine the potential our Theta chapters would have if every member desired and contributed a positive legacy?

Whether you are in a chapter of 50 or 250, there is no possibility for a small committee of eight executive officers to lead and run a successful chapter alone. Unfortunately, not everyone can be given an officer position each year, but fortunately, it is not what is in the "title" that matters, it is what is in your head and your heart. If you have ideas for an educational program, share them! If you have connections in the community for service projects, use them! If you are gifted with the ability to encourage others, we want to hear it! With the hard work, talents, energy, and dedication of each member, we will see our chapters reach their potential.

As 2014 begins, consider the opportunities for influence you will have in your chapter this year. No matter who you are, you are a Theta, and Thetas are leading women. Let us all use our membership in Kappa Alpha Theta as an opportunity to invest in the success of our chapter this year.

How do you plan to positively impact your chapter this year?
