Here to Serve

Twenty-seven women have served Phi Mu in its highest office. Each one, in turn, has left the imprint of her personality, her effectiveness as a leader and her contribution to the progress of the Fraternity. Each one has employed her talents in a unique way and, from the reservoir of her ideas and her ability to project them, has changed the organization to a more useful instrument for its time.

Whatever trait was most needed seemed to appear at the proper time in the national leader chosen by the membership to guide them through a difficult period, a time of growth, or a choice of paths in the Fraternity’s history. Since the formation of Phi Mu Foundation in 1957, each National President has acted as Chairman of its Board of Trustees. Each President also traditionally has attended National Panhellenic Conference meetings as an additional representative or Alternate Delegate.

Below you will find a list of Phi Mu National Presidents starting with our current National President Beth Maxon Monnin, P, and ending with our very first National President Louise Monning Elliott, A!
