ALUMNAE INITIATE INFORMATION
Alumnae and collegiate chapters across the country are encouraged to invite women who have never joined a National Panhellenic Conference sorority to be a part of our Sigma Kappa sisterhood through the alumnae initiate program. These women are all around you and may have roles in your life such as university faculty or staff, friend from a business association or charity league, personal friend or co-worker. They may be your mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, or friends.
A prospective alumnae initiate should be invited to several non-ritual events with the alumnae and/or collegiate chapter. These events should teach her about our heritage, philanthropies, values and the national organization. Once a prospective alumna initiate expresses a desire to be a member of Sigma Kappa, she should complete an Alumna Initiate Application. This application requires two Sigma Kappa alumnae to recommend her for membership, and reference letters may be provided by the alumnae to support the recommendation.
It is important to start the paperwork at least one month prior to Initiation to allow the collegiate chapter time to conduct a vote and to ensure all the paperwork is process at national headquarters. If you would like to learn more about this process or qualifications for becoming an alumnae initiate, please contact Sarah Eller, director of alumnae services, at firstname.lastname@example.org
