I don't understand the virtual part. I should go to work, go to the grocery store, the post office, etc. but only wear my badge virtually? How does that work?

Badge day rules!

I think what they mean by "virtually" is if your overall national/international board has a virtual celebration that you can participate in.

Other than that, wear your badge out if you can! I hope I can, but with my line of work, I'm way too scared to lose it and might just speak on my sorority experience and show off my amazing badge!

I don't usually quote verbatim on these things, but that part stymied me as well. I plan to wear mine, no matter what.

I think because of COVID - to play it extra safe - they're encouraging people to participate virtually in the sense that they don't go out but instead wear their badge through Zoom calls, for example.

At the same time, I think people are largely getting back to "normal" this year.

Also, many people have been "wearing" their badge virtually through social media for many years, even before COVID existed - i.e. changing their profile picture to a photo of their badge.

Made sense to me...not all places are wide open so wear your badge on Zoom, put it on social media, etc. so that you are safe in your locale.

*Minor* correction here. The NAPA in 2017 added Desi (as a descriptor for South Asian Culture) to its name, keeping NAPA as the abbreviation. So it is the National Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Panhellenic Association or National APIDA Panhellenic Association. See https://www.napahq.org/about/#napa-history
(I was involved in researching the changes for Wikipedia a year or so ago)

Because of our guidelines on the wearing our badge, I will not be wearing mine however I will wear a nice SGRho crest pin in solidarity (and because we are turning 100 this year)
