Recommend a Sister
How can you make an impact during formal recruitment? Alpha Omicron Pi alumnae and collegians are invited to recommend a potential new member or introduce a legacy through our Membership Information Form. A Membership Information Form (MIF) is an easy-to-use, electronic form that allows introductions of potential new members to collegiate chapters prior to formal recruitment. Do you want to share the outstanding achievements, leadership skills, or positive personality traits of a potential new member? This is how! All alumnae in good standing, are encouraged to participate in this process that benefits both the chapter and the potential new member. The information provided in a MIF can help enhance the consideration that potential new members receive for membership. Are you a collegiate member and want to recommend a PNM to another chapter? Go right ahead! Collegiate members are more than welcome to submit MIFs for AOII chapters other than their own.
If you have a question that is not answered below, please email our staff who oversees this process.
When should I submit a Membership Information Form?
Recruitment dates vary for each of our collegiate chapters. MIFs should be submitted prior to the start of formal recruitment to give chapter members the opportunity to learn about each potential new member. Please visit the University’s Panhellenic page to find recruitment dates. You may also find this information by visiting chapter websites.
What if a potential new member has given me hard copies of her materials?
Please call or email her to ask that she send a digital copy of each so that you can easily attach them to the online form. If you have scanning capabilities, you can also scan the documents and upload straight from your computer. If you do not have either hard copies or digital copies, you are still welcome to complete the form with as much information as you have.
Can I submit a Membership Information Form for someone I don’t know?
YES! Our collegiate chapters welcome any information you can offer. There is an appropriate place on the form to indicate whether you personally know the PNM, know her based on a reliable source, or are just providing information.
How will I know that my submission was received?
Once your MIF has been successfully submitted, a message will appear on the screen that states ‘Success! Thank you for your submission.’ All information, including attachments, will be directed to the appropriate chapter.
Does my recommendation guarantee an invitation for membership?
Your recommendation is always valued and appreciated! Membership selection is ultimately the privilege and responsibility of each collegiate chapter. A MIF submission or legacy status does not guarantee an invitation to membership. Do you want to view Alpha Omicron Pi’s legacy policy?
