When are you no longer considered "Local"?

Currently my sorority has two chapters.

Alpha Chapter - University of Michigan - Flint

Beta Chapter - is for those who are not attending UM-Flint which currently includes Mott College and Oakland University. This semester we will be pledging girls from Baker College. We chose to lump them all together because of the number of girls.

Oakland University could become our Gamma Chapter.

And this morning we received and e-mail from a girl at Frostburg State University in Maryland about wanting to expand our sorority to their campus.

When are you no longer considered "Local"?

You would probably be considered more than a local, after you have more than 1 chapter and have established a national board/structure.

Good luck with you future Gamma chapter!!

Would you say that instead of "local" we should use the term "regional"?

I would say you're not local as soon as you have a national governing structure in place (and more than one chapter of course). As long as the Alpha chapter is administering all the chapters and granting charters, you're not being run in a national fashion.

But really, I think you could call yourself local or national or regional or whatever you want. It's up to you, assuming you have more than one chapter.

The term regional doesn't always apply once a chapter has grown beyond "alpha". Our first three chapters are 14 hrs apart for each other.

I do have to agree. Once you have a National Organization set up, functioning as a seperate enity, and incorporated with multiple chapters, you should be considered a National organization

Well one thing is a lot of schools, won't recognize you as anything but local if your not a member of one of the conferences (e.g. IFC, NPC, NPHC, etc).
