A Booster Organization to Support Chapters
Membership in Alpha Sigma Phi is for life. Lifetime involvement in the Fraternity means a life enhanced by the spirit, fellowship, ideals, and principles of Alpha Sigma Phi. The Alumni Association exists as an extension of each Chapter or Provisional Chapter. Consistent with our fraternal values and ethics, the Fraternity recognizes the Alumni Association as a strategic partner and booster of the Provisional Chapter or Chapter and Chapter Council.
Alumni Associations are stand-alone organizations that have their own constitution and by-laws. Like a Chapter Council, an Alumni Association has as its official name the Greek name of its respective Chapter or Provisional Chapter (e.g., Alpha Alumni Association). An Alumni Association typically has a stake in the success of their undergraduate chapter, thus alumni from its respective undergraduate chapter typically comprise Alumni Association membership.
The purpose of the Alumni Association is two-fold in nature: To provide support for the benefit of its respective Provisional Chapter/Chapter and Chapter Council through coordination of regular (annual/semi-annual/quarterly) events and/or fundraisers. To provide activities and events (Homecoming, golf outings, ball games, etc.) to support interaction among the alumni members of the Chapter.
The Alumni Association includes, at minimum, the following members:
- Vice President
RECOGNIZED ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
At the 51st Grand Chapter, the Delegates voted overwhelmingly to change the National Constitution and By-laws to place a greater emphasis on chapter based Alumni Associations and less emphasis on regionally based Alumni Associations. Accordingly, all recognized chapter-based Alumni Associations in good standing with Alpha Sigma Phi Headquarters are entitled to one vote at Grand Chapter. If your alumni group is interested in becoming a recognized Alumni Association, look through our Alumni Association Resources.
