But the past few years, I've seen many women initiated. A couple of weeks ago, someone contacted me out of the blue on Facebook - nobody I know. I contacted the regional officers for that area who are now picking up the ball. One of them told me she had worked with a woman who sat across from her on the bus one day!
I'm glad we now have a path to membership that's much easier to take!
Yeah, I think it's frowned upon by my org to petition or pursue on your own. You must have a member fill out a form on your behalf at the minimum.

My org did NOT have a chapter at either school she attended (transferred from one to another). However, one colonized at her second undergrad school following her graduation!
