President's Greeting
 ​​​"Greetings and welcome to the virtual home of Xi Mu Zeta Chapter of Markham, Illinois. Since 1989, we have developed programs and initiatives to serve the needs of the Markham community, surrounding suburbs and the Chicagoland area. Our chapter has a membership of college educated, innovative women with diverse professional backgrounds who have a common goal to serve the community. We use simple beliefs, bold ideas, and the desire for change as tools to uplift those in need. We invite women who have not completed college, but have a desire to serve the community, to join our Amicae (Friends of Zeta) auxiliary. Xi Mu Zeta encourages sisterhood and fosters an atmosphere where women are excited and motivated to lend their time and talent for the betterment of humanity.

       We are dedicated to upholding the ideals of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love, and Finer Womanhood through our workshops, signature programs, and with partnerships and collaboration. Honoring our commitment to Zeta Phi Beta’s International Z-HOPE (Zeta's Helping Other People Excel) Program, we bring a multi-dimensional approach to our programs. The Z-HOPE Program is an interactive, holistic, outreach program designed to enhance, cultivate, and empower participants toward healthy lifestyle choices. Xi Mu Zeta’s signature programs are tailored to meet the needs of our service area with the spirit of Z-HOPE and growing economic challenges in mind.

       Working with community partners and supporters allows us to touch the pulse of the people we serve. We value our partnerships with other non-profit organizations, especially those who complement our Z-HOPE initiatives. Signature programs are developed using our 501c3 organization – The Pearl Foundation. As the charitable arm of Xi Mu Zeta, the foundation is used to initiate funding for annual scholarships and programs such as Stork's Nest, Girl Power, Adopt-a-Family, and our Annual Holiday Toy Drive.

       Thank you for visiting with us today! The eXcited Motivated Zetas of Xi Mu Zeta Chapter invite you to learn more about our programs and sisterhood. We hope to see you at our upcoming events. Please feel free to share your interest by contacting president@ximuzeta89.org.

Yours in Sisterhood,
