BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The National Board of Directors (BOD) consists of 6 elected volunteer members of the sorority. They oversee the sorority's strategic direction, including governance, overall policy making, fiscal soundness, and strategic planning. Members of the BOD are elected by voting chapter delegates at the National Convention every year. Learn more about each member of the BOD below.

NATIONAL BOARD HISTORY
In 2005, Delta Phi Lambda® (DFL) established our first National Board of Directors (BOD). As the sorority has historically been run as a representative democracy, the sisters that have served on the BOD have reflected the values, beliefs, concerns, and aspirations of the membership as a whole.
Each BOD found her own direction through the DFL’s leadership pathways, and each was motivated by her own personal passions, a sense of social and professional responsibility, and a love of our Everlasting Sisterhood® . Together their efforts have been instrumental in creating the culture of the sorority we see today.
For more than two decades, the BOD has shepherded the sorority through both triumphant and trying times. Together, with the National Headquarters Staff, they ensure that present and future generations of sisters can continue to thrive and be trailblazers.
One of the greatest honors is to serve as a member of the BOD, and we honor each of the following members for their countless years of dedicated volunteer hours exemplifying our virtues.
QUOTES FROM PAST PRESIDENTS
Advice on being a successful Dedicated Female Leader®
WILMA MIRANDA 2015 - 2016
"I gained a plethora of knowledge and experience within my professional career having served on National Board for almost 10 years. However, it's easy to become overwhelmed and burnt out with all the work that needs to be done so be sure to always take some time to breathe and maintain self care."
MAY ADVINCULA 2013 - 2015
“Find ways to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. It is easy for us to default to things we are good at and to stick with routine to maintain status quo because it’s what we know. However, in order to differentiate ourselves, you sometimes need to rip up the playbook to think differently. Just because something has been done a certain way doesn’t mean that it always has to be done the same exact way.
Some of the best ideas and most memorable lessons often come out of situations that take you out of your comfort zone. As a leader, you will come across situations that will make you uncomfortable. Whether it is a problem to solve, or a conflict to mitigate, any limitations that you think you have are self-imposed. Do not allow self-doubt or fear hold you back from pursuing an outcome or resolution.”
HANNAH SEOH 2007 - 2013
“Joining Delta Phi Lambda, and especially serving on the Board for over 10 years, was one of the best decisions I ever made. I don't think anything else could have prepared me as much for real life. The lessons I learned in true leadership, integrity, compassion, and humility have served me personally and have propelled me in my career. I would encourage all sisters to take advantage of the opportunity to give back to an organization that has given so much to all of us.”
