Are you active in your alumnae chapter? Yes!
Are you an advisor? Nope.
Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? Nope.
Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? Nope.
Are you a national officer of some sort? Nope.
Something else?
I'm an alumna initiate so although I'm interested in being involved as an advisor, I may not be the most qualified. I still enjoy be part of alumna chapter meetings/events. I'm also going back to school for nursing and that keeps me pretty busy but it's exciting!

Active in alumni chapter. Raise money for charity. Trying to instill service into the next generation.
Keep in contact with college brothers and team mates. Been too many weddings of both.

I have in the last six weeks:
- made arrangements for my badge to go to another member
- removed my group from my will
- changed my Amazon Smile account away from my GLO
- removed the GLO decal from my car
- pitched everything with letters or symbols
- changed my Greek Chat account

What the group is doing is designed to make many resign. I won't give them that satisfaction.

Seems like a strange post for the Alumnae Involvement thread...

Oh, but what she's doing is becoming very common. Alums don't take well to be informed of new "laws" without having had any real input.(As opposed to fake input, where the new rules were determined before the fake surveys were sent out.)

I can't count the number of women I know who have taken similar actions. Some sororities are going to have a hard time paying for upkeep for those mansions without alum support. "Just accept our new policies and keep giving us money" isn't going over well at all.

Are you active in your alumnae chapter? Nope - I've tried - but the group is lacking in "young" alums, and the older alums are very closed off
Are you an advisor? Not anymore - my collegiate chapter that I also advised for nearly a decade relinquished their charter after massive pressure from headquarters to do so
Are you part of a chapter's housing corp? Nope
Are you a regional/province/whatever officer? No
Are you a national officer of some sort? Nope
Something else? Nope - my only connection now is the emails I get and some of the connections with sisters from my collegiate and advisory time

I know of more than a few alumnae who are waiting to see what their GLO decides before making their annual donations. I think the GLOs would be much better served by retooling the rec process, rather than disregarding it. They obvious don't realize how many alumnae are NOT going to be happy!

I'm sure it is becoming more common. My statement still stands ::shrugs::

We should have an alumni de-involvement thread.

NoID's post makes perfect sense to me, and I find it appropriate for this thread. She is telling us that she will be minimally supporting the sorority that captured her heart years ago, because of their new policies, which were probably determined by a handful of alumnae, without input from the majority. I think all the NPCs will find themselves in the same boat. You know the one...the boat that has a big hole in the bottom. The one the national officers expect the alumnae to bail out.

I hope that they're not holding their breath.

I'm hearing stories of many, many membership reviews for women who have been members 25, 30, 40- or more years, who dare to comment or query the wokeness of their headquarters.

What I don't know is if all these are one sorority or more than one.
