It's an APO rip-off. I was over it from post one. lol

Or more precisely, for the Americans here..... it's like the Key Club deciding to have college chapters and demanding that Circle K respect them.

Fairly close, but I *seriously* doubt that many Key Clubbers take their membership as seriously as SRB'ers take theirs. Having said that, I cannot come up with *any* comparison of groups that is closer and/or more understandable to Americans.

The cultural basis are just so different than the American Fraternities. In the Philippines they've had people killed in fratwars between the Fraternities. The Fraternity councils in the US organize Greek Sing, those in the Philippines sometimes organize cease-fires...

If you feel like getting your mind expanded in that area, try [deleted].

Even more reason that they need to stop trying to assume the identities of North American fraternities.

Some yes, some no.

For Alpha Phi Omega, the extension was known and followed by the Alpha Phi Omega-USA National Office. Less than a year after APO-Phil was founded, there was a full page article in the APO-USA Fraternity magazine with congratulations. An international Council was formed in the 1980s.

Alpha Sigma Phi while started separately but some time later did reconcile with the USA group and there is now an International Council.

Other groups are clear at the other end of the scale. Phi Beta Kappa is suing the group in the Philippines to make them go away...

These groups are what we're talking about.

Agreed.

Sometimes you do end up with collision between groups that prior to the internet didn't even know that the other exists, where, for (fictional) example, one is a regional biology honorary in the USA and the other is a Law Fraternity in the Philippines. Those are a little annoying, but there were similar examples in the USA back in the 1920s.

It's the ones where the Philippine groups claim to be part of the North American group that things get *really* annoying. (Claims in the other direction would be equally annoying, but I've never heard of that)
