Gamma Phi Beta's policy on legacies is public information:

https://www.gammaphibeta.org/members.../legacy-policy


We leave it to the PNM to make the notification to her legacy-maker. I also like the way the whole policy is worded - it is clear, cautious and supportive of the PNM.

If anyone wants to read ADPi's policy it is also public: https://www.alphadeltapi.org/files/1...troduction.pdf

I just love the backdrop picture of the 4 generations of sisters. I've seen several Convention pictures of the first 3 generations of this family, and now there are two new members in the 4th generation! Of course, this kind of makes the thought of a legacy being released even sadder...

We've had this policy "PNM self-notification" policy for as long as I can remember. I agree with it.

Legacy
 
My girls preffed at ZTA but joined another group at FSU. I told them to follow their hearts.
That is a most beautiful picture of a family legacy.

It's nice that it's clearly stated in the legacy policy. I'm sure there are still some irate mothers and grandmothers from time to time, but at least you can point them to this.

Many kudos to Gamma Phi Beta, well done!

Alpha Omicron Pi's legacy policy is also available on our website. Yes, we still "make the call". Sisters/daughters/granddaughters are all considered legacies, and we also specify that step and adopted sisters/daughters/granddaughters are as well. Not sure how many other NPCs include the step and adopted language? https://www.alphaomicronpi.org/exper...aoii-legacies/

This is Delta Gamma's:

A legacy is a great-granddaughter, granddaughter, daughter, sister or the same step-relation of a Delta Gamma member. Delta Gamma legacies receive special consideration in recruitment, as they already have a connection with Delta Gamma.
Delta Gammas wishing to let a chapter know about her legacy should complete a Sponsor Form. The sponsor can choose to be notified during recruitment if her legacy is not returning to a Delta Gamma recruitment event by voluntarily including contact information on the form.

For ASA:
A legacy is defined as:
-Sister/step-sister
-Daughter/step-daughter
-Granddaughter/step-granddaughter
-Niece/step-niece

of an Alpha Sigma Alpha member.

I started Googling and stumbled upon this thread. Keep in mind this was started in 2002, but some might find it interesting to see what's changed and what's stayed the same within each policy.

Pardon me for stepping in, LOL!

Just because a person is a legacy Male or Female does not mean they would be right for a certain Chapter for a fit. Is that that the most important thing first and fore most? The Right Fit where a person will feel more at hone and better!

Brothers son (# 54) son was recruited, chapter felt he was a lock and moved on passed him. Well, he pledged Sig Ep, right across the street from the LXA house. The Chapter was piss to put it bluntly! My first response was Whose Fault was it? Not the sons, but the chapter.

If they are worth rushing, never figure it is a lock!

I would hate to be the person that had to make those phone calls. Especially when you couldn't tell the person why the legacy was released.

It can be worse if you really do know the answer. Some of those answers are SHOCKING.:eek:

Right? Do family members really want to hear "your daughter was a horrific bully to a sister in high school and we have documented evidence" or "do you want to see the pictures she's posting online?"

carnation 08-10-2017 04:04 PM

I refuse to be the one who tells them, "Here's where you can see a public photo of your granddaughter, drunk and peeing in a sink."

tds81510 08-10-2017 04:37 PM

Oh my......I need to stay more sheltered.....My daughter starts recruitment on Monday and is a triple legacy, but I can say with almost 100% certainty that she doesn't have any drunk peeing in the sink photos...just not her style at all.....I know...mom doesn't always know about these things...but she is pretty "dull" in the party department and her posse hung out at our house and played cards and watched movies most weekend nights......
