As members, we commit ourselves to the values of Alpha Sigma Tau each day. Paying annual dues ties alumnae to the greater alumnae organization and helps us remain Anchored For Life.
The Creed, particularly Faithfulness to these Ideals, serves as a reminder to remain faithful to the ideals alumnae promised to uphold during the Initiation Ritual. Alumnae contribute to share in the financial responsibility to ensure the success of the Sorority and all of its members.
Alumnae are able to make annual dues payments online, through the mail with a check, or through their alumnae chapters/associations.
Being an alumna of Alpha Sigma Tau has many benefits: friendship, networking, professional development, personal enrichment, leadership skill development, community service participation and the opportunity to support collegiate members.
