Keynote Speaker


We are delighted that our Keynote Speaker this year at the Awards Banquet will be Soror Cori Ahrens! Here's a little more information about her:

Cori Ahrens joined Theta Nu Xi in Alpha Chapter's first line -- Spring 1998. In her 19 years in the sisterhood, Cori has served in numerous roles at both the chapter and national levels, including: Chapter Parliamentarian, National President, and National Director of GAP Affairs. Cori helped to establish the GAP program, the GAP intake process, and one of the first GAP chapters -- Xi Gamma. A graduate from The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1999, Cori received her MBA from George Washington University in 2012. She's now a Vice President Account Director at SPM Marketing & Communications in Chicago, where she leads healthcare marketing strategy for clients around the country. In her spare time, Cori is a Chicago Cubs fanatic, and an avid cross-fitter, which she says is necessary when living in Chicago and being obsessed with deep dish pizza.

"It seems like only yesterday that we were forming our National Organization at the first convention. I vividly remember sleeping in the basement of one of the UNC Chapel Hill dorms. Having our first banquet at a long table in one of Chapel Hill’s favorite restaurants."

Cori is looking forward to addressing our Sisters at the 2017 National Convention!

"Each and every one of you here at convention and in our organization around the country and the world have these same two important tools at your disposal—vision and passion."
