Transcript Promoting the Development of Memhers Ideals and Coordinating Actions Among Chapters AKA SPIRIT SHINES Alpha Kappa Alpha sisters have fun at the Greek Week festivities.

Photo hy Hisi Nwaohelemeh SPRING MEMBERS AKA welcomes its new spring members at a January gathering. Courtesy of Alpha Kappa Alpha The National Pan-Hellenic Council is an umbrella organization that recognizes the need for a self-governing system of co-existence and unified action among fraternities and sororities. It promotes, aids in development of members ideals, coordinates actions among the members, arbitrates disputes and enforces legislation, if the need arises. The UH Council serves nine Greek letter sorority and fraternity chapters with a predominantly African-American membership. The sororities include Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta. The fraternities include Alpha Phi Alpha, Iota Phi Theta, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi and Phi Beta Sigma. The council coordinates social functions, promotes communication among the different chapters and interacts with the Interfraternity Council and the Houston Collegiate Panhellenic Association. This helps to promote the common goals of scholarship, leadership and service. Although each organization has a different set of criteria for membership, individuals who are interested in joining should have at least 12 semester hours at the University. A centralized Rush process does not exist within the NPHC. Each organization has an intake process that may take place during the spring or fall semester. The sororities and fraternities have rush or interest meetings that provide information about the national philanthropies, chapter history and intake process. Banners and flyers are posted around campus to inform the interested women and men about membership activities. The NPHC works cooperatively with other community- enabling organizations such as the National Black Leadership Roundtable, the National Coalition of Black Voter Participation, the NAACP, the Urban League and UNCF, among others. Periodic workshops and training sessions are held annually to ensure a clearer understanding of common operational procedures. • by Jennifer Herrington ISN'T SHE PRETTY?
