What is an alumni chapter?

April 16, 2013

Welcome back to Terminology Tuesday! Each Tuesday we will blog about some commonly misused terms within the Fraternity. It’s our hope that you take some time to read, laugh, smile, and then use the information to alter your word choices, and the choices of those around you.

In honor of National Alumni Day next week, one of the easiest ways to stay involved with Delta Sigma Pi is to join an alumni chapter. Alumni Chapters hold social, professional, and service events throughout the year. Not only is it a great way to stay connected to the Fraternity, it is also a great way to network with brothers in your area. See a list of all of our alumni chapters on the Chapter Locator or find them through the Delta Sigma Pi Facebook Application.

To be recognized continuously as an alumni chapter of Delta Sigma Pi, your alumni chapter will need to complete franchising requirements for the upcoming fiscal year between April 1 and June 30. (For example, to be recognized for the July 2013 – June 2014 fiscal year, requirements must be completed between April 1 and June 30, 2013.)

* Update dues paying members through the Area Alumni Module of Hub. National Bylaws require a minimum of 10 members living in the same general locale.

* Update Alumni Chapter Officers through the Officers Module of the Hub.

* Complete “Alumni Chapter Franchising” Form within the Forms Module of the Hub.  This includes verifying chapter officers, verifying number of alumni chapter members and uploading the current version of the chapter’s bylaws.  The alumni chapter bylaws template can be used to create chapter bylaws.

* Once the “Alumni Chapter Franchising” Form has been submitted, the chapter will be invoiced $25 for franchising fees and $50 for liability insurance fee.  All fees can be submitted via the Dashboard Module of the Hub or directly sent to the Central Office.

Chartered chapters are required to franchise annually to remain up-to-date. The deadline to franchise for the upcoming year is June 30.
