It depends. Every chapter has different guidelines about attendance and what constitutes an acceptable exacuse for missing something. For example: In my chapter, what you just posted would not be considered an approved excuse.

Chapter members expect sisters to be at events unless excused, so understand that when you miss things and you aren't excused (or you don't let someone know your situation ahead of time), there are often consequences. Other members have things going on to, and they still have to be there.
