2018 Reclamation InitiativeLet your footsteps lead you back to Zeta!

V HollingsworthI have the honor once again of greeting you in the name of sisterhood, and to welcome each of you to another extraordinary and productive year for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated.
The 2018 Reclamation Campaign is being officially launched today, January 16, 2018 at 12:00 AM EST, through our National website and social media outlets.
This year’s theme “The greatest Journey of all is the one that leads you back home to Zeta” is the official call to action for our inactive members. As active members, we want our inactive members to return home, no matter how long they have been inactive. We want them to know that their sisters are waiting for them, and will welcome them back into the fold with open arms and giving hearts. So, as I have always said, let’s make it COUNT and bring our Sorors back home “One Zeta at a time”.

Please feel free to share this announcement and reclamation survey with our inactive members in your regions, states and local areas where a Zeta chapter is present. Also, please take time to review the attached PowerPoint presentation, to see how we plan to spotlight chapters and reclaimed members this year.

Each inactive Soror who completes the Reclamation Survey will receive a personalized letter from me as well as a special Reclamation Graphic.

I am urging all Sorors to please change their profile cover to the National Reclamation Logo from January 16 – January 31, 2018 to promote the startup of this year’s Reclamation Campaign.

As of June 30, 2017, National reported (903) of our inactive members returned home to Zeta. Out of the 903 reclaimed members there were 448 that returned home in the special reclamation period from Jan 16 – March 31, 2017. We must continue to remain vigilant in building our membership by reclaiming our inactive sorors. We agree that we are on FIRE for Zeta and strategic growth enables our organization to do more in our communities across the nation and abroad. I have faith that we can have another successful reclamation year, because we understand that “Membership is Key”, so please continue to encourage and promote bringing our sorors back home.

Therefore, please be encouraging to your sisters; let them know that we have missed them, that they are an asset to the organization. Show them that you care and are welcoming. Celebrate the fact they have decided to return home. Show them sisterly love and celebrate their return, because as an organization, we need our members to survive.

I continue to pledge my daily commitment to growing Zeta in my thoughts and my deeds as my tenure in the office of National First Anti-Basileus comes to a close in a short seven months. I thank you for strongly supporting the previous Reclamation Campaigns and it is my sincere hope you will give it your all for the 2018 Reclamation Campaign because “The greatest Journey of all is the one that leads you back home to Zeta – So make your Journey count!”

There is power in membership,
