PETE SESSIONS TO SPEAK AT OCTOBER 15, 2014 DALLAS ALUMNAE PANHELLENIC ASSOCIATION MEETING
United States Rep., Pete Sessions (R), will be the guest speaker at the Dallas Alumnae Panhellenic Association’s open meeting Wednesday, October 15 at the University Park Library, 8383 Preston Center Plaza, Dallas, TX.
Sessions, from the 32nd district and member of the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee (FSPAC), will update attendees on pending legislation impacting the Greek systems on U.S. campuses.
According to the FSPAC website, this PAC supports candidates who will defend and uphold provisions in Higher Education legislation that:”
* Support the free association rights of students at public institutions
* Protect the 501 (c)(3) status of single-sex, non- profit organizations such as fraternities and sororities
* Promote legislation that encourages hazing mitigation and pursues hazing prevention strategies in higher education.
* Advocate on behalf of student housing and safety improvements
Also according to the website, “approximately 40 percent of U.S. senators and 25 percent of U.S. representatives are members of fraternity or sororities. These leaders attribute fraternities and sororities for developing their loyalty, leadership and practical skills.”
Sessions, a graduate of Southwestern University in Georgetown, Tex. is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.
This meeting is open to all who are interested in learning more about these efforts.
Dallas Alumnae Panhellenic Association, founded in 1931, is a community-based organization, affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), whose membership is composed of nineteen representative alumnae from the 26 NPC member group sororities.
