Alumnae Initiate

We invite women who share our philosophy and purpose to become a part of Alpha Omicron Pi.

This invitation is extended beyond the traditional environment of our collegiate chapters across the United States and Canada. We offer women of various ages and situations the opportunity for membership as alumna initiates. Our Alumna Initiate program is available for women who are not eligible to be collegiate members and are not members of another National Panhellenic Conference organization.

An alumna initiate becomes an initiated member of Alpha Omicron Pi for life. She is entitled to the same privileges enjoyed by all AOII alumnae members – eligibility to serve the Fraternity in any elected or volunteer capacity; participation in alumnae programming; plus a lifetime subscription to our Fraternity magazine, To Dragma.

As women who share our objectives and friendship, we expect alumna initiates to fully experience AOII membership by choosing to participate through an avenue of involvement suited to them.

Joining an alumnae chapter provides a network of AOIIs with diverse ages, geographical backgrounds, collegiate chapters, professions, and interests. We share a camaraderie while in pursuit of AOII’s ideals and community service.

Accepting an opportunity to work with collegians as an Adviser or as a mentor offers a unique occasion to both teach and learn from today’s young woman.

AOII Alumna Initiates are:

  • Female friends and relatives of an AOII.
  • Women who have given their time and talents to an AOII collegiate chapter.
  • Former colony members and other past collegians who were pledged into an AOII collegiate chapter, but were not initiated.

Membership Requirements:

  • Completion of at least one year of college. (May be waived by a vote of the Executive Board.)
  • One time fees – covering initiation, badge costs and lifetime subscription to To Dragma. Additionally, alumnae chapters charge nominal local annual dues.

Membership Education:
A sponsor will ensure that an alumna initiate will understand the rich traditions and heritage of our sisterhood. Through individual instruction, she will learn the deeper meaning of Alpha Omicron Pi as developed by our Founders, and expressed in our Ritual.
