Alpha Phi Conference Wrap-up

Friday, March 4, 2011
This weekend, Elegant Affairs had the immense pleasure of coordinating the Alpha Phi Pacific Northwest Regional Conference for the fifth consecutive year. This year's conference took place at the beautiful Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, California, just a hop, skip and a jump from the airport.

Work began back in the late summer when the venue was selected from about a half-dozen hotels. Once the venue was selected work began with the PNW Regional Team to develop a theme. We decided on a Glee themed.

A logo was created that best represented the theme:

Actually planning the conference for the 220 attendees living two states away was made easier with assistance from the Doubletree Event Manager Ariadne Glyptis. It was great working with her because she gave us great ideas how to have the best conference ever along with all of the help from theAlpha Phi PNW Regional Team.

The best part of the planning was coming up with the idea of Friday night's "Dessert Bar." Again, to go with the Glee themed, we rented two slushy machines from San Jose's Party Time Rentals and had a great candy bar comprised of M&Ms, Candy Bars, Skittles and pretzels to go along with the cherry and blue raspberry slushies.

Another highlight of the weekend was Saturday night's Diva Off where we had two of our regional team members act as Sue Slyvester and Will Shuester to introduce our chapters who participated in the Diva Off. (Click on the link to watch the video)
