Visit the P.E.O. Headquarters
P.E.O.s and their families are most welcome to stop in and tour the offices and the centennial center! This, after all, is your building, so do come by and take a look if you are in the Des Moines area.
Chapters...charter a bus and come on down!
Some groups come to Des Moines to tour the Executive Office, then drive to Mount Pleasant (about 2-1/2 hours south) to see Iowa Wesleyan University and the P.E.O. Memory Rooms, and then go on to visit Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri. It's a wonderful trip and a great way to capture the heritage of P.E.O.
Chapters are welcome to hold meetings in the Centennial Center, too! A local Des Moines chapter offers luncheon catering for groups.
For details, contact Laurie Haeder at the Executive Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. She'll be happy to schedule your meeting and give you more details. You will need to complete the form included in the P.E.O. Meeting Event Guide.
