28th National President’s First Blog
Hello Theta Phi Alphas,
As I write my first National President’s blog, I can’t help but wonder where have the last three months gone? It feels like just yesterday we were gathered at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis for our 53rd National Convention. Reuniting with old friends, making new friends, conducting the business of the fraternity, gaining knowledge from speakers, hearing the voices of our collegian and alumnae members, and electing our leadership for the next biennium felt so good after canceling convention in 2020 due to the pandemic. The Convention provided a compass to guide the 2022-2024 members of the Grand Council. I'd like to share with you where that compass is taking us. Read More

 Pay your annual dues today to help preserve the Theta Phi Alpha legacy


Have you ever thought about where we are today and where we could be? What could we do to get to this future state?  Alumnae dues are an important part of investing in our future!

That of our alumnae, our current collegians, but also our future sister who have yet to be identified. Dues help us to invest in membership development, strategic planning, and even expansion. We ask that you can help us today with paying your Alumnae Dues of a minimum amount of $50.00 ($20.00 if you're in your first 5 years of alumnae status). If you’re short on funds we also take recurring payments that you can set up for automatic withdrawals.

As an added perk the first 100 members who pay more than $100.00 will receive a special charm as a thank you gift for your generous support in investing in our future!


For more information about National Alumnae Dues and paying them please check out our Dues & Donations Webpage

Pay today one of three ways:

  1. Via Theta Phi Alpha Webpage

  2. Via check in the mail to the National Office

  3. Via a phone call to the National Office

Please contact Ainsley Robson, Alpha Tau, National Vice President with any questions or concerns.
