We welcome members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® to the Sensational Sigma Tau Omega Chapter of Cary, North Carolina! We invite members to join us in providing service, supreme in nature, to the citizens of Cary and Western Wake County . We normally meet on the second Saturday of each month from January to May and September to December.
Retention and Reclamation Month - April
Chapter Anniversary - June
Sisterly Relations Retreat - September
Christmas Celebration - December
The Membership Committee has targeted Retention and Reclamation as its areas of concentration. In keeping in line with the International President and her effort for massive reactivation, Sigma Tau Omega seeks to encourage inactive members in the area to come visit our chapter and strongly consider joining our ranks. It is important that each member realizes that her active and financial participation in chapter committees, programs, and activities only strengthens her knowledge and commitment to the chapter and the sorority.
The Membership Committee has Ambassadors at every meeting to extend heartfelt welcomes to each member attending in an effort to reinforce the importance of active member participation. This committee also works cooperatively with the Sisterly Relations Committee in developing activities that not only bring members to the chapter, but also cultivates and nurtures their tenure in Sigma Tau Omega. Come and join us... We look forward to seeing you!
Any current members of Alpha Kappa Alpha who are planning on joining our chapter should fill out the Visitor's Form and/or the Member Fact Sheet if the visitor's form was previously completed.
Information regarding reactivation can be found on the international site. The reactivation form is to be used only if you have been inactive for one or more years.
To transfer chapter membership, please read and complete the forms regarding transfer on the international site. Before transferring membership into Sigma Tau Omega, you must obtain clearance from your former chapter.
New membership to a graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is by invitation only. For more information regarding the criteria, please visit the international site.
