For those who don’t know, NPC’s International Badge Day is coming up shortly (March 3rd, 2014 to be exact).
This idea began in 1997 and was established by the National Panhellenic Council. For those who don’t know, March is National Women’s History Month and has been since 1987. March 8th every year is also International Women’s Day (please, before anyone goes off wondering about, “What about International Man’s Day?” please just connect with me personally and we can have a nice long chat about that one).
The event is about wearing your badge next to your heart. Connected closely to the idea that you are always wearing your letters. In fact that is this years campaign title – “Wear Your Letters on Your Heart”
All in all, consider why you wear this badge, the history it represents, and what it means to be a member. A badge has been an element that represented Fraternity and Sorority Life since the days of Phi Beta Kappa when they set the standard of Greek organizations with a motto, badges, and more.
So, this March 3rd, wear your organization’s badge with pride. Stand not only beside your organization, but also beside every other fraternity and sorority member out there.
