watering money

Since joining the AOII sisterhood as a collegiate, you know the power of this group of dynamic, smart, and compassionate women. We laugh together, help sisters find jobs and homes, support our community through philanthropic activities, inspire ambition, and know we’re part of something larger than all of us. You may be looking to network, or find someone to go to a movie with, or build your resume with leadership roles and KCAOII can help you in all those ways. Sisterhood is for life and we’ll help you remember why you joined in the first place.

As a dues-paying member, you help fulfill your pledge to cherish the future of AOII. Chapter dues are waived for new graduates for their first year, $45 per year for regular alums, and $29 for Life Loyal alums.

Are you a first-year grad? Your dues are on us for your first year of alumni-status. Simply contact Debbi and let her know you’d like to join. debbi.johanning@gmail.com

We request that dues are paid by Dec. 20 so that we can acknowledge our full-member roster to International AOII by the end of the year. If possible, however, please pay dues by Nov. 1 to allow us to better plan for our budget.

Wonder where that money goes? Here’s a breakdown of what your local alum chapter receives:

• $16 to AOII International – Annual Operating Fee
• $7 to AOII International – Education & Training Fee
• $2 to AOII International – Archival Preservation Fee
• $10 to AOII International – NEW Technology Fee
• $10 to the operation of the Greater K.C. AOII Alumnae Chapter

In addition to your dues payment, you are welcome to donate whatever additional dollars you would like for other efforts. Whether it’s an additional $5, $50 or $500, your support is greatly appreciated!
