Reclaim Your Pearls
Welcome Soror to Sigma Omega Omega Chapter! Are you interested in reactivating your membership with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated? We are a legacy of sisterhood and service and welcome you back with open arms.
Please review this page in detail and if additional assistance is needed, please contact
Rhonda B. Bailey
To reactivate with Sigma Omega Omega, please complete the Graduate Chapter Reactivation Form – complete and submit to the chapter Membership Chairman, plus money order/certified check for reactivation/reinstatement fees, chapter dues, fees and assessments, as applicable.
You will need to pay: reinstatement fees and the Corporate Office Improvement Project (COIP) assessment, if applicable; and, chapter dues and assessments. Corporate assessments include Educational Advancement Foundation (EAF) dues and the cost of the current Constitution and Bylaws and Manual of Standard Procedure.
COIP is a fee that supports an endowment fund, ratified during the 1992 Boule, which pays for building maintenance of the Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Corporate Office. Earlier, delegates to the 1990 Boule (Richmond, VA) voted in favor of adding an additional floor and storage space to the Corporate Office building. The Building and Properties Committee developed a fund-raising plan which included a building assessment fee to pay for this addition. Since January 1, 1994, the one-time COIP assessment must be paid by all financially active members.
Sorors initiated July 31, 1943 and earlier, do not have to pay the COIP assessment.
If you were initiated after July 1992, the COIP assessment was included in your initiation fees. If you were initiated before July 1992 or were a Golden Soror as of July 31, 1993 and active after July 1, 1994, contact the Corporate Office (Attention: Membership) if you need to verify payment was made.
