56 members initiated so far!

I am interested or know of a woman interested in becoming an alumna initiate, what’s the process for membership?

Prospective alumnae initiates should complete the form below. This information goes to a staff member at NHQ who reviews and connects the prospective alumna initiate, if she already isn’t, with the local collegiate chapter and alumnae chapter in her area.


I’m a part of a collegiate chapter and have a recommendation for a prospective alumna initiate, what process should I follow to recommend her?

Prospective alumna initiates should complete the form above. Review the Alumnae Initiate Program FAQ located in the vice president of alumnae relations supplies.


What type of women are ideal alumnae initiates?

Potential alumnae initiates are all around you. They may be university faculty or staff, a friend from a business association or charity league, a family member, a personal friend, a distinguished leader in your community, or a co-worker. These women should have a desire to participate in alumnae life and commit to being lifetime members of Sigma Kappa.


Where are alumnae initiates initiated?

Alumnae initiates may be initiated into any collegiate chapter. Prospective alumnae initiates, once connected with a collegiate chapter, should work with the chapter leadership to identify when Initiation will occur.


What are the requirements for membership?

All prospective alumnae initiates should have wo Sigma Kappa initiated members sponsor and support your membership request. The collegiate chapter must approve membership for the prospective alumna initiate by a two-thirds (2/3) affirmative secret written ballot vote from the Membership Selection Committee. All financial requirements must be fulfilled prior to initiation.


What are the financial requirements for membership?

The financial responsibility of the alumna initiate includes the alumnae initiation fee, the first year of alumnae national dues, and the purchase of a sorority badge. If the collegiate chapter plans on assisting with any of the fees, this needs to be communicated early on with the alumna initiate to avoid confusion. All fees must be submitted to NHQ prior to Initiation. If the fees are not submitted, the collegiate chapter will acquire the fees on their chapter statement.


Where can I send in payment?

Payment can be sent in via check or called in over the phone to our finance team, 317-381-5517. We want your information safe! You can request a secure online payment link can be sent to accountsreceivable@sigmakappa.org.


When is the deadline for alumnae initiation paperwork?

All alumnae initiate paperwork, including payment of fees, should be submitted no later than three (3) weeks prior to Initiation.


Do I still need two one-page references?

No! At the 2022 National Convention this requirement was removed. You will still need two active members in good standing to sponsor your membership but they will not need to write you a letter of recommendation!
