Jane Harmon has been involved with CWENS since 1967, and was one of the founding board members when Title IX mandated that men be accepted into the organization in 1976. The meeting to form Lambda Sigma was held at her house, and the board traveled to Atlanta to begin the process of transforming the organization. "We were excited about adding the male component to the group," said Harmon. "It was an amazing year making sure all of our chapters remained with the national organization. We lost two chapters who did not want to add men. Several of us traveled around the country meeting with chapters and letting them know what ideas we had for Lambda Sigma."

In 1979, Harmon began the chapter at Georgia Tech to learn first hand how to work with a group. "It was a very exciting experience," said Harmon.  For Harmon, one of the best parts of being on the board is working with the stellar members of the National Board. "We are very
serious about running the organization," she says, "but we also laugh a lot."
