President's Welcome

Dear Hermanas and Guests,

I am excited to welcome you to exciting New York City for our 28th Annual National Convention and Founders Celebration. 

On July 20, 2018, we will be welcoming Hermanas from all across the country for two days of business, and most important, sister bonding. This year, our convention theme is "The Power of Purpose: Strategizing the Why!" In choosing this theme, the Convention Committee hopes that the designed programs and activities will remind us about our purpose as an organization and as Hermanas. What expectations do we have of each other? 

Elections and SIA business will take place alongside thoughtful programming (both small group and large), opportunities to meet new sisters and to celebrate in the state where SIA started. At we are happy to be having our SIA business meeting at New York University (our very own NALFO Undergraduate Chapter of the Year) Phi Chapter.

We welcome you, family and friends to celebrate with us on July 21, 2018 at our Annual Founders Banquet at the beautiful Alhambra Ballroom in historic East Harlem, New York. It will be a night of music, celebration and recognition of the extraordinary Hermanas that make our organization so precious and rare. 

On behalf of the National Executive Board and the Convention 2018 Committee we look forward to seeing you all!

En Solidaridad, 

Helen Torres Ramos
National President
