Join the Philanthropy & Service Committee
We are excited to announce the establishment of a new standing committee, the Philanthropy and Service Committee. The committee will partner with chapter philanthropy chairman to ensure that each chapter has a designated local philanthropy partner, establish opportunities to support partner organization and develop relationships between Phi Sigma Sigma at the international level and chapter local philanthropic partners.
"The Philanthropy and Service Committee will play a vital role in strengthening our philanthropic partnerships on the local level while also providing our chapters with support from both the Fraternity and Foundation," said Katie Vlietstra Wonnenberg, Grand Archon of Phi Sigma Sigma. "In the spirit of one Phi Sigma Sigma, I cannot think of a better chairman to lead this effort than Amy Bien. Having served Phi Sigma Sigma for 17 years, Amy has a deep understanding of Phi Sigma Sigma operations, lives our values on a daily basis and brings a breadth of professional knowledge as an educator to this role."
