Membership

Thank you for your interest in joining the Alum Association in creating a sustainable, supportive, professional, and social network. Please review the most frequently asked questions concerning benefits, dues, requirements, meetings, and more.

All sisters of Sigma Pi Alpha Sorority, Inc. that have graduated and are in good standing with the sorority are eligible for membership. 

Being a member of the association automatically grants you a vote in decisions concerning the alumnae association which include but is not limited to the Alum Association constitutional amendments. In addition, you will have full access to the alumnae network, a growing database of alums along with the option to participate in monthly career development opportunities, life skills workshops, and multiple relationship-based social events and programs. 

Additional benefits include:

  1. Recordings of past workshops to reference at your convenience. 
  2. Exclusive alumnae monthly newsletter highlighting events, alumna spotlight, words of wisdom, and much more.
  3. Invitation to any other events/workshops set forth during the calendar year.

To become a member please request an application from the Administrative chair by sending an email to aamembership.sigmapialpha@gmail.com. After submission of the application and payment of dues, you will be added to your corresponding NCAA or SCAA google group and begin receiving updates, newsletters and access to any ongoing benefits.

(Dues are temporarily suspended due to COVID19).

The application asks for personal and professional information as well as a copy of your degree or unofficial transcript.

Membership must be renewed every year. To facilitate the renewal process, the Administrative chair will send out a renewal survey every January. Sisters will need to confirm their renewal via the survey and pay applicable dues.

Applications for membership are open year around. Please contact the Administrative chair by sending an email to aamembership.sigmapialpha@gmail.com for an application.

Membership dues for 2020 have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. This was decided in an effort to address the planning of only virtual events until it is safe to plan otherwise. As soon as a dues schedule is determined sisters will be notified via the NCAA and SCAA google groups.

 

No, members will have the opportunity to attend a variety of community service events throughout the year. Members can grow networks in community service areas such as Environmental topics, Education topics, Health and Mental health, Community Organizing and Social Movements as well as participate in Alumnae Association organized philanthropy events.

At this time, meetings are not required but your attendance is highly encouraged. Monthly General Meetings are held on the third Friday of every month at 8pm. Zoom links and passwords are provided via the NCAA and SCAA google groups 

The Director will send out an agenda 48 hours prior to each meeting so that you may review and participate in the discussions/votes that most matter to you.

If and when dues are established, all members will be required to pay dues directly to the finance chair. For a dues schedule and a payment plan, please contact the finance chair. Dues are nonrefundable.

NCAA and SCAA representatives will send out detailed information about voting matters via Google Groups. Members voting on decisions relating to National Council and the Alum Association will then send their vote to their corresponding regional representative via google groups. 

  • Voting on Alum Association related decisions will first be presented in a general meeting and then via google groups. 
  • When voting on National Council related decisions, each region is entitled to 1 vote (1 for NCAA and 1 for SCAA). 
      • Submission of NC votes by the representative will be held on a winner-takes-all basis for their respective region’s members.
