  • Panhellenic Formal Membership Recruitment will be held September 16-19th, 2017

    • Feel free to contact the Panhellenic Association Director of PNM Experiences at pnmexperiences.csupha@gmail.com      

Round One: Membership Expectations

Saturday, September 16, 2017   

You will be introduced to Panhellenic life by your Recruitment Guide, meet with women from each of the Panhellenic sororities, as well as learn about the values for each of our chapters. You'll learn about the importance and value of sisterhood, not only with individual chapters, but with the Panhellenic community as a whole! The chapter members will discuss with you their membership requirements, such as time commitment, academic expectations, financial obligations, and live-in requirements for their chapter facility – so be sure to have all your questions answered!

Round Two: Philanthropy and House Tours

Sunday, September 17, 2017

During the recruitment rounds today, you will hear about each chapter's philanthropic causes and how each chapter supports the philanthropy of their national organization. For example, Colorado Gamma participates in Champions Are Readers, holds philanthropy events such as Pi Burger Fry and Beaux and Arrows, all in effort to support Read. Lead. Achieve. You will also have this opportunity to tour the chapter houses to see what it is like to live with your sisters!

Round Three: Preference Night

Monday, September 18, 2017 

Each chapter you visit today will have a preference ceremony that highlights the core values of their organization. The preference ceremony is intended to showcase what sisterhood and lifetime membership means to each chapter. These ceremonies often include singing, senior or alumnae speakers, and other ritual-like activities.

Bid Day

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Chapters give out bids to potential new members! You will meet with your Recruitment Guide, and then proceed to a rally where you receive your bid. New members will join their chapters for bid day activities that evening.

     Myths About Pi Beta Phi Recruitment          

1. A Pi Beta Phi legacy will always receive a bid for membership.      

FALSE!    

Pi Beta Phi recognizes the value of the special relationship between legacies. Members are encouraged to fill out a legacy introduction form to help chapters identify the legacies going through recruitment. However, recruitment is a mutual selection process between a PNM and a Pi Phi chapter. Collegiate chapters must invite legacies to a minimum of one invitational round. Should a legacy be invited to the preference round, she shall be placed at the top of the chapter’s bid list.       

2. Chapters are required to call the alumnae who submitted a RIF if the potential new member is released from recruitment.    

FALSE!   

Chapters are not required to notify alumnae during recruitment of the status of the PNM for whom they submitted an RIF. The chapter may send a final new member list to local alumnae clubs in the area to let them know of their New Member class once Bid Day and pledging festivities have occurred.      

3. Chapter alumnae who attend recruitment are allowed to take part in membership selection.   

FALSE! 

Only active chapter members, the AAC chairman or AAC membership adviser are to be present during membership selection. If a Fraternity officer (regional team, consultant or director) is present, she may also attend.
