Happy Saturday, all! The upgraded AAPA website is live! Take a moment and browse around. You'll notice there is a much stronger emphasis on social media and the day-to-day workings of Panhellenic and our member sororities. So please, share!
DELEGATES: there is probably a bunch of info that needs to be updated on your member pages. Make sure your directory info is up to date with Exec Board. EB will be sending me the digital copy of the directory as it goes to press so updates will be made from that document. There is no need to email me your delegate/chapter president updates. (Read: please don't send them....) Updates to alumna chapter award listings and social media links will be made *after the first meeting in September*, along with any directory changes made between now and then. Annual member updates are a big job so help me to help you get them done in two easy (?) batches.
See you in September!

Connie Pope Great job, Adrienne Duncan! Thank you for all you do to support AAPA!

I am planning to have an online fundraiser for Sisters for Scholars in the Fall but I wanted to give you all a chance to become familiar with the products before promoting them to your network. I personally don't promote/recommend anything that I haven't tried to friends/family/sisters :) This will be completely online. Like I tell my friends 'you want/need to shop so why not do it for a cause!!!' The signature item is the 3D Fiber Lashes - Drena has them so you can get a rec from her if you need to! All producst are 100% natural, never tested on animals, and most are gluten free!

Hi All! Your AAPA Webmaster is working on getting all of our information organized and ready to rock for our 2014/15 year! (There are some visual suprises on the horizon too - stay tuned!)

Today I need your help. The AAPA website posts formal recruitment dates for all GEORGIA colleges and universities. I ran through the list on our website, updating as many links as possible and posting formal recruitment dates and links to Panhellenic information for each one where available.

However, not all dates were posted by each school. Please take a look at the calendar page here: If your formal recruitment info is correct, we're golden. If a date needs an update or if your school's info is missing, please contact me using PM here on Facebook or use the form on the "Contact" page of the website to send me the dates and a link to your school's recruitment info.

Don't forget to post more info about your formal recruitment here!
Hope you're all having a great summer!

Adrienne Duncan, Phi Mu
Webmaster, Atlanta Panhellenic

Zeta Tau Alpha mourns the passing of Deb Ensor, our beloved Executive Director since 1985. She passed away this morning (Friday, July 18) in Indianapolis after a brave battle against ovarian cancer.

Deb’s leadership, vision and passion shaped our Fraternity for four decades. She taught us to “Seek the Noblest” and leaves a legacy of love and values to her ZTA sisters and the interfraternal world.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her mother and brother and all whose lives she touched. Read more about Deb’s legacy and make a contribution in her memory here:

Fraternity and sorority members are significantly more engaged in their workplace and overall happier than students who were not part of a Greek organization, according to a new survey from Gallup.

AAPA LinkedIN Group is closing...

Hi all--
We gave it a good try but the new Exec Board and I have decided that it is time to close the private LinkedIn networking group. The Atlanta Panhellenic will continue this group presence on Facebook as the primary open networking forum for NPC sorority women and those interested in learning more about sorority life through all of its stages.

Does anyone know if there's a list of the philanthropies for each sorority in NPC? I've looked for it in a few places but haven't had any luck finding one.

Merrill Gibson I don't remember seeing a list. Tri-Sigma's is children's play therapy. We give grants to local children's hospitals for equipment and have play therapy rooms in a hospital in Texas and one in North Carolina. Could all of the other sororities post their philanthropy below? Thanks!

May 28, 2014 at 5:01 pm


Jessica Andrews Delta Phi Epsilon has two philanthropies: the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and ANAD.

May 28, 2014 at 5:12 pm

Andrea Gillespie Stanfield Thanks, Merrill Gibson!

Kappa Kappa Gamma's philanthropy is RIF - Reading is Fundamental.

May 28, 2014 at 5:17 pm

Rhonda Abbott Phi Mu's is Children's Miracle Network. Gives to the local children's hospitals.

May 28, 2014 at 5:28 pm

Andrea Coffey Stewart I thought the NPC website had a page that listed everyone's philanthropy. Alpha Phi's is the Alpha Phi Foundation.

-Gayle Weatherford Panter Phi Mu's National Philanthropy is Children's Miracle Network.

Carol Mooney Check out the NPC Manual of Information. Another alternative is to look at each group's national website.

June 1, 2014 at 5:05 pm

Peggy Jones Go to our AAPA website at and to the right there is a list of each member group and click on each group and you will find that information. Kappa Alpha Theta's National Philanthropy is Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
