Alumni Chapter

Hello
Im part of a multicultural fraternity that has existed for 20 years and we have no other chapters besides our one. After alot of us graduate we all will be living in the same area. Is it possible to create our Beta chapter as an alumni chapter and how so? We are really looking forward to try to do this to help future expansion. Any details would be helpful.

Many fraternities use a different naming convention for alumni chapters from undergrad chapters. While nothing is stopping you from having your Beta chapter happen to be an alumni chapter, I would advise against it.

Some fraternities name their alumni chapters after the cities in which they are chartered. Others would use a Greek letter at the end to mean "alumni" for that organization. In Alpha Phi Alpha, the Greek letter Lambda denotes that it's an alumni chapter. You will want to choose what works best for you.

As you decide on what to name it, you will want to develop guidelines for what makes an alumni chapter different from a collegiate chapter.

Thinks to consider (you don't have to answer these questions here):

1) Will alumni chapters have the ability to confer membership or will they just be for people who crossed in undergrad?

2) Will the alumni chapter have to implement a program of service that is identical to collegians, or less time consuming?

3) What will dues be? Where will the dues go?

4) Do you want to plan a national structure first?

5) Will this structure include men for whom their only responsibility is setting up chapters? Note that not every active alumni member will want to (or be good at) expansion -- separate the duties of an active alumni member from that of a VOLUNTEER or elected person.

Hope that made sense, I'm sleepy

That makes sense to distinguish alumni chapters by certain names we wish to help start undergrad chapters by using this chapter for exposure also. We wish to be able to confer membership on an alumni basis also. We also see this as being as strutured as our undergrad while keeping in mind that we will not regularly see each other as if we were on a college campus.
