Since 1899, Alpha Sigma Tau has fostered a sense of community among like-minded women. Traditionally that community has taken the form of members connecting with one another in person, but technology’s rapid changes now allow the Sorority to provide opportunities for members to connect globally.
Alpha Sigma Tau is pleased to launch a suite of online communities hosted in Facebook groups. Members who have Facebook accounts will have the opportunity to join any of our interest-based groups to connect with women who share similar passions, hobbies, and places in life. The groups will each feature a volunteer administrator who will approve requests, lead conversations, and promote engagement. The goal of the communities is to facilitate connections between members and build a network that provides women with support, advice, a sense of community, and (of course) fun!
“The Alpha Sigma Tau alumnae experience looks different today than it did 120 years ago,” said Jim Paponetti, Chief Executive Officer. “Today, technology is ingrained in our everyday lives, and Alpha Sigma Tau recognizes modern social networks as a way to provide members access to subsets of their Sisters who share in similar interests. Right now, members are looking to other groups and communities on social media for advice, support, and friendships, but we want to provide a similar type of outlet to connect women who already have at least one thing in common—Alpha Sigma Tau. Every day we ask ourselves, ‘How can Alpha Sigma Tau continue to provide value post-graduation to our members and advance who they are as women and as individuals?’ Our online communities are a great way to do just that.”
Our first phase of online communities will include:
For globetrotting members to swap and share advice, itineraries, deals, and travel hacks
Alpha Sigma Tau Moms
For members who are mothers to give and receive advice, offer support, and connect over motherhood
For young alumnae to build friendships and swap tips on navigating their journey of many firsts in life
For members who enjoy reading to swap recommendations and participate in a virtual book club
For members who own businesses to share their products, services, and offerings
For members who strive to make wellness a part of their everyday lives to have a network of encouragement
Our online communities will launch in early 2020. Check your inbox, mailbox, social media, and back here for the launch! We hope to see you there!
