Starting a New Chapter

National Panhellenic Conference

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) provides support and guidance for its 26 member inter/national sororities and women’s fraternities and serves as the national voice on contemporary issues of sorority life. Alpha Delta Pi joined the NPC in 1909. Since 1902, the member groups of NPC have unanimously agreed to pursue certain procedures and ethics, which lead to orderly and ethical conduct. Additionally, each Inter/National President signs the Unanimous Agreements indicating that every alumna and collegiate member will abide by and honor the Unanimous Agreements. These agreements must be incorporated into College and Alumnae Panhellenic procedures and are binding upon all chapters of NPC member groups. For additional information on the Standards, Policies, and Unanimous Agreements, please visit the NPC website.

Expansion: Is Your Campus Looking to Expand?

As a member of the National Panhellenic Conference, Alpha Delta Pi is responsible for following the extension and expansion guidelines set forth in the NPC Manual of Information. Becoming familiar with these procedures will be helpful as you seek the addition of a national sorority at your educational institution. The National Panhellenic Conference has an Extension Committee that is designed to assist universities with the process of starting new chapters or creating a new Panhellenic system. All extension and expansion material is available from the NPC website.
