In honor of Past International President Carole Jones, Alpha Delta (U of Alabama) beginning her term as Chairman of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), AOII created an NPC Commemorative Emerald Badge to celebrate this milestone event for AOII that, in NPC’s previous structure, only occurred every 52 years.
This badge was previously only offered for purchase until AOII Convention 2019; however, with the new Governance Structure from NPC, the NPC Council of Delegates elected Carole to NPC Chairman in 2019 and she will continue in this role until June 2021. With this extended time period of Carole serving this role, the sale of the NPC Commemorative Emerald Badge has been extended to June 2021.
The badge is available in sterling silver or 10K yellow or white gold, and features emeralds in the “O” and in the corners of the “II” to recognize NPC’s signature green color. Considered a secondary badge, it is available for purchase by initiated members of AOII who are in good standing.
