it is my understanding that the alumnae are offered the opportunity to be initiated into the absorbing group at the time that the collegiate members of the absorbed group are initiated.

So Sarah Ida Shaw created Tri Delta and Pi Delta Theta? I wonder why she felt the need to establish two. Google time.

She actually had a hand in several sororities' developments. She was like a one woman panhellenic.

Didn't she also help Alpha Sigma Alpha to reorganize?

Yup, and she also had a hand in the organization of Theta Upsilon, another NPC group which was eventually absorbed by DZ.

I own an IAPi badge and agree with Dream*a*Dream's "merger" description. My version is the older one, sans the roses. I'd love to see a later one.

Dream, do the roses replace the diamonds on the horizontal points?

Dream, why did DPhiE have to change its badge? Can you tell us what it used to look like? The current DPhiE badge is very classy, IMHO.

A dear friend was a BSO and her campus in PA already had ZTA at the time of the absorption. The were "released" and Alpha Phi picked them up.

badge

That really is a beautiful badge!! I love looking at badges...such a geek I am.

I have a question for you all...since there have been so many NPC groups that didn't make it, do you think that any of the present groups will ever close or merge into another group? Of course I don't want any specific GLOs mentioned, but do you think is it a possibility?

On the other side of the spectrum...are there any local groups that are currently being considered by the NPC for membership? I've heard of a few groups that are interested, but to my knowledge nothing is happening. It has been more than 50 years now...
