Fall 2022

The fall 2022 issue of The Crescent is here, and in it, we give a full recap of Convention 2022. As writer Laura Mishkind (Colorado-Boulder) states in the cover story on Page 22, “Convention was a celebration like no other! After four years of no in-person Convention, sisters raced to St. Louis, Missouri, to gather for the 80th Convention. The theme — an appropriate nod to our connections — was As Long As We’re Together.” Get the full scoop on Gamma Phi Beta’s 80th Convention, meet the 2022-24 International Council and discover much more in this issue!

Winter 2022

This year, National Infertility Awareness Week takes place April 24-30. As such, we dedicated this issue's cover story to the challenging topic of infertility and pregnancy loss. On page 18, three courageous members share their hearts with us in writing as they speak to their fertility journeys. In her opening letter on page 3, International President Autumn L. Hansen (Idaho) touches on her fertility journey, too, and shares her wish for readers of this issue. “I hope what you learn reminds you that you are not alone. And, if this is not a journey you can relate to, some sisters will benefit from the listening and validation you can offer from understanding a little more about something that far too many women experience.”
