Omega Phi Alpha’s alumnae efforts promote programs to engage all members as lifelong, service-minded leaders. One way to continue the sorority’s mission after college is to stay active as alumnae members.
Alumnae can be recognized in the alumnae society program (also known as Digging for Diamonds), run for national office, be an alumnae delegate at Convention, make financial contributions, find ways to volunteer, be nominated for the Ann DeMatteo Alumnae Service Award, or simply stay in touch via the Chevron newsletter or social media. To stay in touch with the latest OPA happenings, it’s important to update your contact information in the OPA membership database on a regular basis.
While it’s not required, alumnae can also join or start alumnae chapters. See the list below for current Greek letter and provisional alumnae chapters across the country.
