Alumnae Chapter Guidelines

Best Practices of an Alumnae Chapter

Each alumnae chapter has a different personality, but all of them should do the following minimum activities to continue to be recognized as an alumnae chapter:

  • Select one sister to be your primary contact person with the national organization.
  • Contact the vice president of alumnae relations early in the fall to ensure the lines of communication are open.
  • Coordinate at least four alumnae chapter activities (meeting, social gatherings, projects) during the year. At least one of those activities should be a service project opportunity.
  • Send the vice president of alumnae relations a short summary of the chapter’s activities by June 1. The summary should include a list of all chapter members who participated in at least one activity during the year.
