Does that count?

Ok.. first a disclaimer for all those who think every thread about "sorority life" is mean and negative : This thread was not formed an any way, shape or form to be mean and negative to the Greek community and/or the "Sorority Life" people.

I was surfing the SAEII site just to see what their take was on the whole feedback from the show, and found that says :
"April '02 - Sigma Has Highest G.P.A. of all UCD Panhellenic Sororities for the FIFTH Quarter in a Row!!! "

Since they consider themselves "local" are they included in the NPC G.P.A's etc? Just wondering.

The are considered because they are an associate member of Panhellenic.

Just wondering how they became an associate of NPC? I've heard they have only been around for 4 years.. and have heard of locals with other chapters that have been around for 20+ years?

they're an associate member of a local panhellenic NOT npc. basically the panhellenic on their individual campus invited them to be associates not NPC as a whole.

They're associate members of the UC Davis Panhellenic Council. Associate membership is often extended to local sororities or NPC sororities' new-member colonies. It's a "voice but no vote" position, and the associate member group is excluded from officer rotation.

When I was in college, we had a local sorority as a member of our campus panhellenic. They were included in officer rotation and could vote. In fact during my junior or senior year (I forget which), their sister was the chair of the campus panhel. Maybe things have changed in the last few years.

From my limited knowledge, any campus w/ two NPC's can create a Panhell and locals can be invited to join. i guess they aren't bound but they can be easily removed. isn't it partially up to the campus panhell? That's kinda what i know, we wanted to form panhell cause we were having trouble getting the frats to do anything, but the local wouldn't be bound by anything so it became pointless.

According to Green Book rules, any campus that has two NPCs must create a Panhellenic Council. Local sororities are welcome to join the Panhellenic, they are allowed a vote (at least they were on my campus!), but are excluded from officer rotation.

And yes, a local may choose to leave Panhellenic at any time. We had that happen once on my campus, too. It wasn't pretty.

Because they are an associate member of Panhellenic, does this mean that they must follow the recruitment rules set forth by NPC?

My local sorority is a member of our Panhel and we get to vote and we hold chairs. Since we do participate in formal and informal recruitment with NPC sororities we do follow NPC recruitment guidelines aka the "Green Book".

Maybe things are different from campus to campus, then. When my local sorority was an associate member of Panhel, we were not included in officer rotation nor were we given a vote.

Yes, if they are an associate member, they are obliged to follow the NPC recruitment rules (Quota, Total, COB, snap bids, etc.).

Ya know....If they were a national sorority, no one would say bad things about them. Its just because they aren't your letters is why you don't like them. They seem to be founded on good principals. But I wonder if anyone at UC Davis is a Sigma Alpha Epislon or Alpha Epsilon Pi and that confusses the guys during rush...like they think its coed or whatever. Plus Jordan needs a hug. I'd give her one.

On our campus we have 2 NPC colonies and 1 local. We haven't set up a Panhellenic Council yet (I'm guessing we will do that after the colonies have become chapters?) however, but have got copies of the "recruitment rules" for the fall semester. Our Greek Advisor pretty much just said the local sorority would have to follow them also (including quotas, totals, etc.) The local never got a choice whether they were going to have to follow them or not so I'm guessing they are automatically going to be an associate memeber of the Council when it is formed
