AST petition to join the NPC

Posted on Facebook on September 10th:

Quote:
75 years ago today, Alpha Sigma Tau petitioned the National Panhellenic Conference for membership.

Under the leadership of Third National President Carrie Washburne Staehle, this petition marks the beginning of Alpha Sigma Tau's commitment to the Panhellenic community. However, it wasn't until 1947 that the Sorority, along with six other AES (Association of Education Sororities) organizations, became associate members of the NPC. Full membership was granted in December 1951.

That's a cool piece of history! Also interesting to note it was when NPC was still called the National Panhellenic Congress. Must have been during one of the several conference/congress flip flops

My first reaction was I asked a while ago what the next likely joiner was to the NPC and being told it was a Catholic group (out of Wisconsin???) and being sure it wasn't AST.
