Alpha Sigma Alpha National Council Leadership Change
Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority announces the resignation of National Vice President Heather Riley, ФФ.
Heather was first elected to the national council in 2012 serving as vice president of membership and then as vice president of operations beginning in 2016. Prior to board service, Heather served Alpha Sigma Alpha in numerous roles including: Emma Coleman Frost Leadership Development Institute facilitator, convention project team member, member of extension presentations, District 9 district meeting coordinator and District 9 education coaching team member. She is a past president of the Greater Kansas City Alumnae Chapter and also served as secretary, treasurer and convention delegate for that alumnae chapter. Heather shares the following:
“The decision to resign from national council was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made. For the past three years, I have been battling Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Recently, my journey with this disease has entered a new phase that requires me to place an even greater focus on my health. Because of this new phase in my health journey, I was no longer able to provide full measure to my role and that situation was not acceptable to me.
These past seven years have been so incredibly rewarding. I cannot begin to acknowledge the incredible friendships, experiences and laughter I have been so blessed to be part of during my tenure on national council. Every person I met, every event I experienced, every meeting I attended made me a better person. THANK YOU! I have experienced the true definition of sisterhood and love and I will be forever grateful.”
National President Kelly McGinnis Beck shares, “Heather will be greatly missed on national council. Heather brings her talents and passions to everything she does and we have benefited tremendously from her non-profit experience and analytical thinking. She is member-focused and passionate about ensuring we provide a quality membership experience. We wish Heather much love and strength as she moves into this next phase of her health journey.”
