Chapter Expansion for locals

Hey everyone,

I wanted to know if any locals have more than one chapter. We did have two chapters but the other one has to be rechartered. I was wondering how do locals go about starting chapters at other schools. We have about 5 schools in mind for expansion and we were wondering how it works. I know with our Beta Chapter when it was founded we had a sister who started school there and then she got some girls together who wanted to join and that's what happen. But, I need some help with this one.

You will have to contact the school and see what procedure you would have to follow to become a campus organization... for example at my school you have to have your constitution written and get a petition signed, have a sponser organization, etc.. it would vary from school to school... once you find out what you have to do you should recruit women to help you do it !!! I suggest looking up student activities or leadership office, or greek life... one of those type of offices to help you get started at these campuses !

Thanks but how do I find women who are interested? I know there are some because I have been told, but I guess we don't know how to go about it.

Hello Zetagymnast,

You had posted this in another thread and I answered but I will post it again here. What my organization has been doing, as a local as well, is posting flyers aroung the campus you would like to expand to. Some campuses will not allow you to do it around the student center, but in the dorms they let you. Go onto that campus wearing your letters. If you are having an event or something hand out flyers on different campuses. That will also get some interest. Promote your website, if you have one. Also defenatly conact the school greek life and check out their requirements. These are juts somethings that are working for my org, hope it helps.

Jessica

Since I'm not in a local and never have been, I can't really offer much advice, although I would recommend contacting colleges fairly close to you, to make everything easier. Go to their campus and put up flyers, if you're allowed to. Hand out flyers. Every little bit will help!

??

Your signature is in my post because I was quoting you and I quoted your entire post. That is what the >>> <<< mean. I have no interest in having your letters in my own signature since I am not a member of your group.

No one is "disrespecting" anyone. aopiinthesky simply cut and pasted the post, rather than using the quote feature.

Congratulations!

Expanding that quickly will be a huge undertaking.

In Sigma Nu's early days, members of our Alpha Chapter enrolled at other schools to start them off. They recruited new members and got the new chapters rolling. Many of those chapters are still around today having started in the late 19th century.
