For eleven state bienniums (May 1991 through May of 2013) Mu State Headquarters played an important role in the life of the Society in Florida. The building was used for state officer training meetings, initiation ceremonies and Founders’ Day celebrations, local chapter meetings, and as a field trip destination for chapters around the state. The history of each Mu State biennium was housed in the files kept in the building too. And before there were computers, email, and websites, Mu State Headquarters was the main hub of communication between state and chapters, state and districts, and state and International Headquarters in Texas.
