Before and since that time, alumnae have had the opportunity to pay national alumnae dues through their local alumnae chapter. The national organization now offers the option to pay national alumnae dues directly to the national organization. These dues support the ongoing work of volunteers and staff focused on alumnae membership on a national level.
