Honor National Ritual Celebration Week with Pi Beta Phi

Published On: 2014-02-27

Pi Beta Phi is excited to celebrate National Ritual Celebration Week (NRCW), March 3-9, 2014. This week is an important time to remember and discuss what our Ritual means to us, and how it calls us to a higher standard as sorority women. National Ritual Celebration Week will kick off with International Badge Day (IBD) on March 3.

The National Panhellenic Conference celebrated the first International Badge Day in 1997. It has continued to grow since then, bringing together women from all NPC groups in a celebration of our common heritage as sorority women. We can't think of a better way to usher in spring than by celebrating the beauty of Ritual with all of our NPC friends!

Here are several ways you can celebrate:

  • RSVP to the official International Badge Day Facebook event invitation.
  • Wear your badge on Monday, March 3.
  • Download Pi Phi’s NRCW Facebook cover photo and make it yours for the week!
  • Send us photos of you wearing your badge! We are asking all members to send pictures of their International Badge Day celebration. Did you and a coworker both wear your badges to work? Are you sharing International Badge Day with your legacy daughter? Are you and your sisters wearing your badges to class? However you're celebrating International Badge Day this year, we'd love to see a picture of you showing off our beautiful Pi Phi badge! You can post the photo to our Facebook wall, tweet it to us @PiBetaPhiHQ or send it to socialmedia@pibetaphi.org. We can't wait to see how Pi Phis are participating! We’ll compile the photos into a Facebook photo album at the end of the week!
  • Did you know that Pi Beta Phi is on Instagram? Follow us @PiBetaPhiHQ to see some exciting photos of our heritage badges and Headquarters staff members sporting their various NPC group badges! There are more than just Pi Phis who work here! Be sure to tag us in the photos you post, too. Use @PiBetaPhiHQ and #NRCW so we can find your photos!
  • Oh yeah, the Leadership Development Consultants are on Instagram, too! They will be sharing photos all week long about the ways our chapters are celebrating National Ritual Celebration Week. Be sure to follow along with #NRCW!
  • Join the conversation about Ritual on Twitter. We'll be tweeting this week to encourage conversation about what our Ritual means to us and how we can live it each day. On Twitter, use the hashtags #badgeday14 and #NRCW. 
  • Check our blog for a special post from Fran Becque, Fraternity Historian, about the importance of Ritual!

We can’t wait to see your photos and hear your thoughts on Ritual. Ring Ching!
