Alumnae Panhellenic Associations
Looking for another way to stay involved as an alumna? Participate in an Alumnae Panhellenic Association!
Alpha Sigma Tau is always seeking outstanding alumnae to represent our organization in local Alumnae Panhellenic Associations.
What is an Alumnae Panhellenic Association?
An Alumnae Panhellenic is a community-based organization affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). Membership is composed of alumnae representatives from NPC member organizations.
The purpose of Alumnae Panhellenics is to:
- Inform sorority women of current trends
- Promote the sorority experience
- Improve the Panhellenic image
- Stimulate a continuing interest in Panhellenic involvement
Examples of Alumnae Panhellenic Association Programs:
- Scholarship awards
- Grants and loans to college students
- Information sessions for prospective collegiate members (such as incoming freshmen)
- Philanthropic and service projects
- Civic leadership
- Supporting a local college’s Panhellenic community
Alumnae Panhellenics have an important function in informing the public about the value of sororities and updating members on matters of interest. This function is best carried out when alumnae of all NPC member organizations are represented in Alumnae Panhellenics. Any alumna of an NPC sorority is eligible to represent her organization if she meets its organizational qualifications.
Alumnae Panhellenics are purposeful organizations of dedicated, capable alumnae. NPC recognizes the stabilizing force of these organizations and appreciates their excellent, varied contributions to local communities and the purposes of NPC’s member organizations.
Alumnae Panhellenics are philanthropic and social organizations. Some Alumnae Panhellenics raise funds for scholarships, participate in community service, and take part in altruistic work in their local communities. They may also host informational events for potential new members to learn about sorority recruitment. Members might assist local colleges and universities with the recruitment process. Even if an alumna’s own sorority is not represented on a campus, participation in the Alumnae Panhellenic helps to promote NPC membership overall.
Membership in an Alumnae Panhellenic can help a sorority woman maintain a connection to sorority life beyond college graduation. Above all, Alumnae Panhellenics support the NPC vision: advancing the sorority experience together.
