"Invitations for Membership (2005) – POLICY
NPC reaffirms that a sorority should be willing to issue an invitation to membership to any woman who is invited and
attends its preference event. NPC reaffirms that the name of every woman whom a sorority invites to attend and who
attends that sorority’s preference event should appear on the sorority’s bid list."

From page 51 of the most recent Green Book.

I'm trying to find where the different recruitment structures are listed, but since the overwhelming majority of campuses use fully structured recruitment I'm assuming that's the perspective they're writing about.

Should =/= must.

They can recommend with the strongest language possible, but NPC still cannot dictate to individual member groups that they must offer a woman a bid.

This all being said, a wise & caring mom/grandma/sister will be aware of her group's policy and if it does dictate legacies being pkaced on the bid list, think of her sorority sisters and tell the rushee to be kind yet honest if she's not feeling it.

from the NPC Manual from 2016

Invitations for Membership (2005) – POLICY
NPC reaffirms that a sorority should be willing to issue an invitation to membership to any woman who is invited and
attends its preference event. NPC reaffirms that the name of every woman whom a sorority invites to attend and who
attends that sorority’s preference event should appear on the sorority’s bid list.
