Supporting Our Chapters

Alpha Omicron Pi’s chapters and chartering chapters operate within regional networks. Each network has a dedicated team
of volunteers working in the areas of alumnae relations, finance, leadership, and recruitment. For chartering chapters and
new chapters, staff members partner with an international volunteer who works solely with one chartering/new chapter until
the group is ready to transition and work with all other network volunteers.

Our Collegiate Experience Department is comprised of a Director of Collegiate Experience and eight Assistant Directors
of Collegiate Experience (ADCE). Each ADCE is assigned to one network to assist in the leadership and management of our
chapters in collaboration with their network of volunteers.

Our Growth Department is comprised of a Director of Growth and two Assistant Directors of Growth (ADG). Each ADG,
with assistance from our Educational Leadership Consultants, plans and executes the chartering of new chapters including
public and campus relations, recruitment, development and the chapter's installation. Following the chapter's installation she
assists in the leadership and management of these chapters in collaboration with their assigned volunteer. States marked
with an asterisk (*) have a chartering or new chapter that works with an ADG.
