Rebecca Amezquita, administrative assistant of the University's chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, participated in a Partnering For Success Workshop August 5-6 in Portland, Ore. The workshop featured advanced skill development in enhancing chapter public relations and communication, recruiting and involving faculty and professional staff, insuring chapter officer succession and continuity and increasing member participation.

The two-day session was fourth in a series of five major training workshops scheduled for 2006 across the country.

"It was truly a cooperative group with a lot of sharing and networking that will serve the chapters well," said Penny Wright, vice president of the western region for the Phi Kappa Phi Board of Directors.

Founded in 1897 and headquartered in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society.

Phi Kappa Phi inducts annually more than 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni.
