The Voices of Volunteers: Gaining Professional Skills

In honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we are recognizing our amazing volunteers by letting them share their stories through their voices.

Today’s volunteers share with us how their positions in Phi Mu helped them enhance their professional skills.


Florence Williams, E

Epsilon Chapter Adviser

“Joining Phi Mu and serving as a volunteer has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It profoundly impacted me and helped prepare me for the business world. Now, as a professional woman in the workforce, I can say that I use the skills I have learned through my volunteers roles with Phi Mu every day. If I can help the current members find that connection, even if it’s only one woman, then that’s worth all of my time and effort.”

Alicia Liebel-Berg, ZI

Zeta Eta Housing Committee Chairman and Zeta Eta Ritual Adviser

“The Zeta Eta Housing Committee Chairman was the perfect volunteer role for me because being in the architecture profession, I have a career’s worth of knowledge in securing property, initial design, city approvals, permits and construction administration. It allows my expertise and knowledge to shine while strengthening my professional skills. I feel that it’s important for volunteers to find a role that enhances their talents. It has been so rewarding to be able to assist those that I care about most, my Phi Mu sisters. This is the power of being a volunteer for the Fraternity: to give the very best of yourself. It’s been so exciting for me to experience the impact that my volunteerism has made on the chapter.”
