      regional officers

      The Regional Boards oversee the operation of the Area Boards across the country and serve as a liaison between the Board of Directors and Area Boards. Our organization is comprised of seven regions:



      area officers

      The primary purpose of the Area Boards is to oversee and support all of the local chapters within their area. The Area Boards were created in order to give chapters in one state, or chapters within a particular area of a state, the access to leadership for guidance and supervision needed to function more effectively. The Area Boards provide opportunities for chapters to collaborate with one another and serve as an avenue to stay abreast of sorority news. There are currently 27 areas:
