Letters of Recommendation

Letters of Recommendation are simply letters of reference written by an alumna of a sorority to her sorority’s chapter at the University of Arkansas.  It is appropriate and highly encouraged for you to obtain your own letters of recommendation.  You can begin this process by informing friends, teachers, and relatives that you are participating in formal recruitment at the University of Arkansas.  The alumna can either write a personal letter of reference or obtain a standard form from National Chapter Headquarters.  Many local Alumnae Panhellenic Associations will also provide forms to women.  The University of Arkansas Panhellenic Council does not provide these forms.

Letters of Recommendation must be sent directly to individual chapters at the addresses listed below.  If a recommendation is not voluntarily sent, the chapter has the responsibility of obtaining one.  However, it is encouraged to have at least one letter of recommendation per chapter.  All letters must be postmarked by August 1, 2019.

 

Alpha Chi Omega
We prefer that rec letters from alumnae be done electronically either through the national website (alphachiomega.org ) or through our chapter website (alphachiarkansas.com).  They can also be sent through email to Casey Butler at arkansasaxo.vpri@gmail.com

Rec letters from alumnae are not required, but at least one letter is strongly encouraged.  A PNM will not be penalized if they do not have a letter, but it can only help them.

Preferably submit online through: https://alphadeltapi.org/Members/Page/PotentialMemberRecommendation/.  Our chapter requires at least one letter of recommendation online through https://alphadeltapi.org.  We also require a form to be filled out for our legacies through the same website.  This year, the chapter is trying to move completely to all electronic submissions, and we would prefer limiting letters of recommendation to 1-3 per PNM through the national website as opposed to mail.

The VP of Membership serves as the primary contact for our chapter during recruitment.  Pi Beta Phi alumnae should send Recruitment Information Forms (RIFs) and Legacy Introduction Forms to the VP of Membership before recruitment.  The recruitment period is a mutual selection process between a PNM and  Pi Beta Phi collegiate chapter.            

Sponsorship is required before our chapter may invite a PNM to preference round.  The sponsorship is provided through a RIF, expressing definite approval to invite the PNM to membership.  These can be sent to our chapter house (address above) and must be sent through the mail.            

A Legacy Information Form is strictly an informational, optional introduction and does not take the place of a RIF.  It does not provide sponsorship.  The Legacy Information Form can only be submitted electronically through pibetaphi.org and can be sent to pibetaphivpm@gmail.com once completed.
