Alumnae Awards

Alumnae Chapter AWards  |  Individual awards

Our alumnae are making positive impacts in their communities, in their professions and in Alpha Chi Omega. Each year, we recognize exceptional alumnae for their efforts as well as honor our alumnae who go above and beyond in promoting the values of Alpha Chi Omega. Biennially, Alpha Chi Omega also recognizes the accomplishments of our alumnae chapters.

Alumnae Chapter Awards

Biennially, Alpha Chi Omega celebrates the accomplishments of its alumnae chapters and recognizes outstanding performance in alumnae chapter operations by presenting alumnae chapter awards at each convention. To be eligible for an award, the chapter must remain in good standing with the Fraternity.

The next application period for alumnae chapter awards will open in fall 2021, and an updated awards guide is coming soon! In the meantime, chapters are welcome to use the previous application period’s awards guide for goal-setting in chapter operations.
