So you would like to Form a Recognized Alumni Association or House Corporation?
All Alumni Associations are not recognized by the National Fraternity unless they are formally chartered and remain in good standing with the Fraternity. In order to be chartered, all alumni associations are required to submit the application paperwork, listed below:
1) Certificate of good standing issued by the state of your incorporation.
2) Copy of your last Form 990 from the IRS.
3) A list of all Directors and Officers with the understanding that all must be in good standing with the Fraternity.
4) A Copy of your By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation
All recognized alumni associations are afforded full voting rights at the National Conclave and are required to send, at least, one representative to the Conclave to remain in good standing. In addition, each alumni association is expected to support the National Insurance program with an annual payment of $500. A one-time chartering fee of $100 is assessed to newly recognized alumni associations.
