College and Beyond
Vice President of Alumnae Relations email:
Sigma Kappa provides each member opportunities for growth and development. Whether serving as a chapter officer or participating in membership programming. During your time as a collegiate member, you will grow your skills in the five competencies Sigma Kappa’s education focuses on National & Global Citizenship, Career Readiness, Meaningful Relationships, Self-Awareness & Development, and Holistic Personal Wellness. Through these competencies, you will gain invaluable skills and experiences that will take you into the next phase of your life and beyond!
After graduation, your daughter has the opportunity to remain involved in the organization for years to come. With over 165,000 members worldwide and 106 alumnae chapters in 34 states, your daughter has the opportunity to connect with women wherever she goes in the coming years. Alumnae membership looks different for each of our members. Some are involved in an alumnae chapter who meets regularly for activities and service events while others are advisors for a local chapter. Our members are able to continue their personal and professional development with Sigma Kappa through social and philanthropic activities with other alumnae members. The possibilities are endless and her Sigma Kappa involvement can and will look different over time, based on her life experiences.
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 processed at national headquarters. If you would like to learn more about this process or qualifications for becoming an alumna initiate, please contact Sarah Eller, director of alumnae services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested in impacting your sisters lives? Or interested in helping ways to improve and keep the sorority run smoothly? The best way to give back to Sigma Kappa after graduation is to become a volunteer at the local or national level.
