Another year, another perfect time to celebrate ZTA sisterhood!
Zeta Tau Alpha is excited to ring in the new year. 2014 will mark our 116th year, our 41st International Convention, exciting new educational programming and much, much more! We look forward to the great things our Fraternity, chapters and members will accomplish on our quest to “Seek the Noblest.”
While we often use the numbers nine (the number of ZTA Founders) or five (the points in our crown) when making our lists, we have decided to kick off 2014 with a list of ZTA fun facts dedicated to 14!
1. The 14th issue of Themis was published February 1908.
2. The 14th National Convention was held in Pasadena, Calif., June 30-July 4, 1935.
We’re headed to California (Los Angeles) in 2014 too! Coincidence?…
