Volunteer Personnel

Volunteers make Alpha Sigma Tau possible. Among other important roles, they advise collegians, lead alumnae chapters and associations, and provide strategic local, regional, and national leadership that aligns the Sorority’s actions with its mission, vision, and values. Even our member magazine, The Anchor, is written, edited, and published by volunteers!
