Welcome to the Charlotte Chi Omega Alumnae Association Web site! As you scroll through the pages, I 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 favorites times of the membership year…ELEUSINIA Planning!! With April 5 falling on a Friday night this year instead of a weeknight, we have the opportunity to plan an extra special evening. Eleusinia is an event that is included in full or in part for all our Chapter members but all Chi Omega Alumnae are invited to attend and are welcome. Stay tuned for details as we finalize the venue and pricing.
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. I am 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. I hope more of you will join us in this membership year.
