Alumnae Colony Formation

And you thought only collegians could be colony members!
Last summer in Convention, Council passed a resolution
adopting a new status for alumnae groups: alumnae colonies.
Like collegiate colonies, alumnae colonies are groups working
to meet the requirements to be installed as an alumnae
chapter. With this new status, this will help groups of alumnae
working to organize a chapter publicize their existence since all
colonies will be listed in the To Dragma Council Directory. Why
not help gather together all those AOII sisters in your area?
Below are instructions and requirements for alumnae colony

Resolution: "WHEREAS, After the 1960's, fewer alumnae of any fraternity were
graduated; and
WHEREAS, Statistics produce an ever-shrinking total college enrollment, after
THEREFORE IT BE RESOLVED, That an AOII alumnae group not large enough
to be called a Chapter be given the status of an alumnae colony for a period of up
to three years and be so listed in To Dragma. If full membership is not accom-
plished by the end of three years, it will be understood that the listing in To
Dragma as an AOII Alumnae Colony will be deleted."
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: To provide a program to enable alumnae to meet
with one another, join in AOII activities, and to be listed in To Dragma. It is to
create new alumnae groups, not to lessen the expectations of existing chapters.
This Alumnae Colony status will be granted where there are less than the required
fifteen members to form an alumnae chapter. The expectation is that this group
will grow to meet alumnae chapter membership requirements within three years.
In areas where the membership potential does not develop, the colony may apply
to the Regional Extension Officer for renewal of status. Existing alumnae
chapters may not request colony status.

POLICIES/PROCEDURES: Alumnae Colonies are supervised by the Regional
Extension Officers; requests for applications as well as completed applications
for recognition are sent to her. A group from 3 to 14 alumnae will pay an
application fee of $10 and annual colony dues of $15. They must meet at least
threetimes/year,and elect a chaiman whose name/address is reported annually
to the REO and to Central Office along with a summary type annual report due
April 15. Other officers may be elected at colony discretion. It is stressed that the
colony make contact with near-by collegiate and alumnae chapters, and supply
membership information as a part of their program. Alumnae Colonies will
receive the computer printout, Regional Newsletter, "Piper," Founders' Day
Message, plus other material relating to them and/or of Council interest. There
will be no regularly scheduled visits from Regional personnel; a special visit may
be recommended by the REO. Alumnae colony members are encouraged to
attend Regional Meetings and Conventions as non-delegates.

The International and Regional officers,
the Greater Kansas City, the Topeka

from Delta Pi all took active parts. The
girls in Phi colony did an exceptional
job. They pledged thirty-six girls during
