WASHINGTON, DC – The Daughters of Penelope (DOP), a leading international service organization comprised of women of Hellenic heritage and Philhellenes, launched Webinar 5 of the National Webinar Series on December 3.

Members from around the world including the National DOP Grand Lodge and National Maids of Athena Grand Lodge joined via Zoom with DOP Grand President Celia Kachmarski to discuss ways to recruit and engage new members during the coronavirus pandemic.

Grand President Kachmarski spoke about the story and major accomplishments of the DOP, its mission, what the DOP do, and how she became a member. After the presentation participants shared how they became members as well and how much it has meant to them.

“My motto this year has been together we are stronger, together we thrive, and it has been felt across the globe this year through the amazing work and dedication of our chapters during this COVID era. Our membership, commitment, and philotimo are our organization’s greatest strengths,” said Grand President Kachmarski. The DOP announced they will launch a new series of webinars about their national projects shortly after the New Year.
