To reiterate, our team 100% believes that attending an informational meeting hosted by a local Alumnae Panhellenic organization is one of the best ways possible to begin exploring the sorority recruitment process. Often called a "Spring Forum" or "Recruitment Forum," these meetings are hosted exclusively for high school seniors and their parents in order to introduce you to the structure, lingo, and financial obligations associated with sorority recruitment and sorority membership. You will also learn valuable information about the pre-recruitment process, and receive answers to questions like "What information should be included on a Social Resume?" "What does a Recruitment Information Packet include?" and "What's a Letter of Recommendation"—and more!
To help you find the Houston area spring forum nearest you, we've compiled a list of all of the local meetings taking place this spring. We will continue to update this list throughout January and February as we receive new information! If you have any questions regarding the district you fall into, we encourage you to get in touch with a Panhellenic representative using the website links below.
