Traditional Alumnae Chapters and Ivy Connection Chapters

As you know, Alpha Phi is a lifetime organization. While you will always be a member of your collegiate chapter, there are more than 130 worldwide active traditional alumnae chapters and Ivy Connection chapters that you can join! Alpha Phi will continue to be a source of lifetime value to you because we are flexible with our programming and services to accommodate your changing needs.

There are many benefits to membership in an alumnae chapter. These include an introduction to a new community, an instant circle of new friends, philanthropic and community activities, fun social events, business and networking opportunities, and opportunities to support a local collegiate chapter. Many chapters have even formed special interest groups to accommodate the variety of members’ interests and schedules. The primary focus of all alumnae chapters is fun and friendship! Each traditional alumnae chapter and Ivy Connection chapter is comprised of local Alpha Phi women from different collegiate chapters. You will have the opportunity to meet other alumnae at all stages of their lives.

What is the difference between a traditional alumnae chapter and an Ivy Connection chapter? An Ivy Connection chapter is geared toward women who have graduated within the last 10 years while a traditional alumnae chapter is for women of all ages. Some cities have both types of chapters, each with its own leadership and activities. Regardless of which organization you join, you will find new Alpha Phi friends and create more wonderful memories wherever you go!

Most chapters do not hold business meetings, just fun events! Chapter members meet for lunch, attend movies and the theater together, participate in book groups and hold a variety of other activities. But if you want to take a more active role in leadership, you are encouraged to become an Executive Council member or join a committee. Your alumnae chapter experience will be whatever you want it to be!
