National Panhellenic Conference
ALPHA CHI OMEGA, ALONGSIDE 25 FELLOW WOMEN’S GREEK ORGANIZATIONS, IS A MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL PANHELLENIC CONFERENCE (NPC).
As the premier advocacy and support organization for the advancement of the sorority experience, NPC provides Alpha Chi Omega a voice in the fraternal community. In addition, our members benefit from this expanded Greek community, allowing them to network with Greek women who are members of other sororities. The NPC also provides resources like The Sorority Life, a valuable asset for potential new members, parents and alumnae. Overall, our representation in NPC helps us establish a strong reputation and influence in the Greek community.
NPC offers support to member organizations and is a reliable voice on contemporary sorority life. NPC sororities are located on more than 670 campuses with more than 415,000 undergraduate members in more than 3,200 chapters. Alumnae are represented in more than 3,800 associations throughout the world.
The National Panhellenic Conference consists of 26 groups and each organization has a delegate who sits on the Council of Delegates. The Delegate for Alpha Chi Omega is our National President, Lynne Herndon. Each national organization has a Chief Panhellenic Officer (CPO) who works to help chapters and volunteers address any Panhellenic issues or concerns that arise on individual campuses. Courtney Ellis (Xi, University of Nebraska) serves as the CPO for Alpha Chi Omega and oversees the Panhellenic specialists for each region. Additionally, Alpha Chi Omega currently has a representative, Jen Daurora (Delta, Allegheny College), on the NPC Board of Directors, a board that helps provide direction and oversight of the entire National Panhellenic Conference.
Certain principles and standards of conduct have been agreed upon by the member groups and are considered to be Unanimous Agreements. Each sorority is responsible for enforcing and adhering to these agreements by the members of its groups. It is up to the sorority women to make Panhellenic stand for worthwhile ideals of college life and offer positive examples of fraternal membership as collegians and alumnae.
