Chapter Officers

officer Emma Harris

Emma Harris


As chapter president my role is to run our chapter meetings, work closely with both PHC and IHQ, make sure the chapter is running smoothly, handle any issues that may come up, and support the other officers in any way I can. My goals for this year are better communication throughout the whole chapter, improve our sisterhood events and opportunities for the girls in our chapter, and improve the retention in our chapter. Being on exec last semester was really what made me want to run for chapter president. I was able to see all the work put in behind the scenes and wanted to take what I had learned to further improve our chapter. I am so excited to be a resource for every girl in our chapter and watch each girl succeed!
