Welcome to the Charlotte Chi Omega Alumnae Association Web site! As you scroll through the pages, we hope you’ll be able to discover all the wonderful things we have going on in the name of our Fraternity. Founded in 1937, the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter is the oldest Alumnae Association in the area. We are now entering one of our favorite times of the membership year when we get to welcome our newest graduates into the fold of “Alumnaehood.” Sisters from universities all across the country are returning home to their Charlotte area families or getting their first jobs and relocating to Charlotte. We get to welcome all of these Sisters as they enter this very important Chi Omega role. If you know a recent alumna who is looking to connect, please direct her to our officers/directors.
Also founding members of the Charlotte Alumnae Panhellenic in 1955, our group of Alumnae has been instrumental in fostering Greek awareness and providing assistance to the Greek community for nearly six decades. In those days, the Theta Gamma chapter at Queens University was the only collegiate chapter in the area. Since then, Chi Omega added to its list of active chapters to grow to include Delta Kappa/UNCC; Chi Lambda/Winthrop; and Theta Lambda/Wingate. We are proud to say that over the last several years, thanks to our members, we have raised enough money to start our Queen City Chi Omega Scholarship Fund. As the fund grows, we will add awards until there are four: one to be given to a Sister at each chapter. Your annual membership dues will help us make that vision a reality!
The Charlotte Chi Omega Alumnae Association is about so much more than social events, although we do have plenty of those! We include book club, local subgroups, philanthropies, business and relocation networking, donations to Make-A-Wish and the Chi Omega Foundation, assistance to the local collegiate chapters…all the things to reinforce the six purposes as set forth by our Founders so long ago. We hope more of you will join us for the remainder of this membership year are are looking forward to the upcoming 2013-14 membership year.
