Contact Karen at for any additional questions. Your recruitment questions answered WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF RECRUITMENT? The purpose of recruitment is to add to our sisterhood new members who will be active collegiate members and engaged alumnae for a lifetime. WHOSE JOB IS IT TO RECRUIT NEW MEMBERS ? It is the joy and responsibility of all Kappa Delta members to recruit and represent our sorority each and every day in our communities and on campus so that those who see us will see Kappa Delta and the values of honor, beauty and truth that we hold so dear. WHAT DOES A POTENTIAL NEW MEMBER (PNM) NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN RECRUITMENT? • An open mind! • Good grades, service to others and leadership skills, which are highly valued by every chapter • A genuine interest in sorority membership IS A RECOMMENDATION NECES SARY? While recommendations are not required by any of our collegiate chapters, they are encouraged so that a chapter may get to know potential new members before recruitment. A recommendation is best written by an alumna who knows the PNM personally. This is an opportunity for members to ascertain the compatibility of a PNM with the chapter in terms of leadership, scholarship and service to others. Send all recommendations as early as possible. There is no particular number of recommendations that is preferable. Letters of support are not needed. It is best for a legacy to have a recommendation written by an alumna. ARE GRADES IMPORTANT? YES. Each chapter has a grade requirement as specified in its chapter bylaws. PNMs are released if grades do not meet this minimum standard. Grade requirements apply to legacies as well. ARE THERE ANY RECRUITMENT DON' TS ? Collegiate and alumnae members may not promise any PNM a bid, even a legacy. Each college Panhellenic has rules that apply to both collegiate members and alumnae. If you are unsure, please ask a collegiate member from that particular chapter. IS MONEY IMPORTANT? Membership in any organization consists of a monetary obligation. Sorority membership is no different. There are fees for being a new member and Initiation. There are dues and other assessments for special events, social events, T-shirts and pictures. There are facility fees and often fees for food. Local campus Panhellenics encourage conversations regarding the monetary obligations of sorority membership. WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT TO BE A SORORITY MEMBER? All memberships require commitment of a member's time for meetings and other chapter-required events, plus all of the optional opportunities. WHAT ABOUT HOUSING? Not all Kappa Delta chapters have housing. Of those that do offer housing, some require members to live in the house for a period of time. The PNM should ask about housing during recruitment. WHAT ARE THE POLICIES RELATED TO BEING A LEGACY? • A legacy has a mother, sister or grandmother who is a Kappa Delta. Step relations of these are considered legacies. • A chapter must have confirmation of legacy status through a legacy introduction form or a recommendation. • All legacies with paperwork – a legacy introduction form or a recommendation confirming legacy status – are invited to at least one invitational event during primary recruitment if at all possible. Chapters at schools with only three rounds may release a legacy after one round. • If a legacy is to be released, she is released early in the process to maximize her other membership opportunities. • Often there are more legacy PNMs than spaces available for membership. • The collegiate membership director must grant permission for a legacy to be released if requested by the chapter. • If a legacy accepts an invitation to a KA Preference event, she will be placed at the top of the bid list. MAY A PNM PARTICIPATE IN RECRUITMENT AFTER HER FRESHMAN YEAR? Upperclassmen may participate in recruitment at any time. Many colleges and universities have a special upper class or secondary quota providing additional opportunity for membership. Please check with the campus Panhellenic. HOW DOES TRANSFER MEMBERSHIP WORK? If a collegian is initiated into Kappa Delta at one college or university and transfers to another school, the second school will take a chapter vote on affiliation. There are no guarantees. If unaffiliated, this member takes alumnae status. ONE LAST WORD: Recruitment is not an end; it is a beginning. The real work begins as we provide for our new members the opportunities of sisterhood for a lifetime.
