Beta Sigma Phi members in Los Alamos are preparing for a state convention set to draw more than 200 sorority sisters, plus dozens of husbands, from throughout New Mexico for three days of local history, culture, arts and entertainment this weekend.

“Our theme is The Golden Age – the 1940s,” said Convention Chairwoman Dawn Brown.

Convention co-chairwomen include Kate Stoddard and Shannon Harms.

“I am impressed with the effort this organization has put forth to see that Los Alamos will shine for this convention,” said Hilltop House owner Kim Selvege. “This is a huge undertaking and I hope it shows that Los Alamos can host more national conventions in the future.”

Chamber Member Services Coordinator Katy Korkos and other staff have been working to help ensure the convention is a success.

“We’re really happy to welcome the state convention to Los Alamos; it’s an honor to have them here,” Korkos said.

The chamber has donated use of its tent for convention attendees use at Gordons Concert later this evening.

Fundraising Committee Co-Chairwoman Mary Mah spoke of the convention saying, “I’m excited that we’re hosting the convention here and I look forward to showing off Los Alamos and how good everything is looking.”
