Benefits of Membership

As a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, there are countless opportunities to stay involved throughout your lifetime. As an alumna, there is an opportunity to join a local alumnae chapter. With over 160 alumnae chapters throughout the United States and Canada, there are a myriad of ways that local alumnae can stay plugged in and enjoy the company of AOII sisters.

Once an alumna becomes a member of an alumnae chapter there are numerous opportunities to make new friends, get involved in philanthropic activities, network with other AOIIs, discover new interests, support the Fraternity and community, and have fun. Each alumnae chapter sets its own programming calendar and determines their annual fees for membership. Fees typically range from $50-$60 annually.

Alumnae Initiate Program

The Alumna Initiate Program allows AOII to share our Ritual with those women who are a large part of our lives and who exemplify what AOII is, but for one reason or another, were not presented with the opportunity to become an AOII during college. This is a great way to make a family relationship grow even stronger through the bond of sisterhood that so many have already experienced! Alpha Omicron Pi has extended alumnae membership to outstanding women for many years and has allowed many women (mothers, sisters, aunts, close friends) who have never been part of an NPC organization to join AOII. Alumnae Initiates (AIs) have been able to not only support alumnae chapters but also help the growth of collegiate chapters by becoming advisers and volunteers.

Qualifications for Alumnae Initiates:

  • One time fees – covering initiation and badge costs
  • All Alumna Initiate candidates must have a sponsor who they know personally and who lives locally.
  • Candidates may not be members of another National Panhellenic Conference Organization, nor eligible to be an undergraduate collegiate member

AOII Alumnae Initiates are:

  • Female friends and relatives of an AOII
  • Mothers, Grandmothers, or other relatives who want to offer their support to the collegiate chapter
  • Former colony members and other past collegians who were pledged into an AOII collegiate chapter, but were not initiated
  • Women who are interested in mentoring and working with young women
  • Faculty Advisers, campus leaders and University mentors
  • College graduates who show outstanding volunteer involvement
  • Notable women from the local community
