“I am a 2nd-generation P.E.O. I have been allowed the opportunity to know other women, to grow as an individual and to help women achieve their goals. My oldest daughter, (3rd-generation P.E.O.) is a Cottey grad. We are so grateful for the education she received. P.E.O. remains an important part of my life.”

You Add 2 P.E.O. Each member is encouraged to think of friends, relatives, neighbors and colleagues who would embrace the mission of our Sisterhood, bring her own unique gifts and talents to P.E.O. while benefitting from loving concern. Invite them to join and meet the You Add to P.E.O. challenge! As our Sisterhood grows, so does our impact on the hundreds of thousands of women who benefit from our philanthropies.
Celebrate! Local chapters who meet the challenge will be recognized in The P.E.O. Record and on the P.E.O. International member website and will receive a congratulatory letter from the President of International Chapter. These chapters will also be entered into a drawing to be spotlighted on the official P.E.O. Facebook page and in the new P.E.O. blog. Special recognition is also being planned for 2023 s/p/d conventions AND at the 2023 Convention of International Chapter.
You Add 2 P.E.O. LOCAL CHAPTERS —Add two or more members via initiation or reinstatement between March 1, 2022 and July 31, 2023. Many of you may have already met this challenge!
