I have heard about it and I know a proposal went to NH at the last convention, but I don't know what the decision was. I know how to do it, but due to not knowing the decision on it, I never use it.

Nationals has said that they cannot approve it as part of our symbols (like the crest and the rose) however they have given permission for us to use it and share it! PM for details!

Deb Volker, the National VPR (an alumnae of my chapter) visited last spring during Province Day and taught all of us. It is so cute!

You have a secret hand sign? I'm confused; what is its purpose?

It's secret; we can't talk about it.

I think that some fraternal groups have hand signs that are not something used publically as a "shout out" kind of thing, but rather are used in the context of ritual, or as a further means of identification in a non-public context.

Yes, I know that's the case, but this is not an official thing, as they mentioned, so I was thinking it's not ritual. I guess it could be an unofficial challenge or something of that sort.

In any case, I stand by the opinion I've expressed in other threads: white girls throwing up hand signs in pictures is dumb.

Somehow I misread and thought it had been adopted as official. My bad. Carry on.

I feel you. This is true. I don't know how it is with other organizations, but that's generally in a nutshell how it is with my frat. It's more to it than that, but it's still part of the identification process.

The hand-sign is not a part of our ritual or any of our official symbols and is not secret. While SAI is not a multicultural sorority in name, we have many chapters on HBCU campuses and I think the hand sign and call (which we also have) is more prevalent amongst those chapters.
