Sister Search has returned to the Theta website! After discontinuing inCircle earlier this year, the new Sister Search has been launched as the online tool for members to use in order to connect with each other. After logging in to the site, members can search the Fraternity database for all initiated Thetas, both living and deceased. You have the ability to search for any Theta based on name, chapter of initiation, school, state, city, and/or ZIP code.

So that other members can learn more about you, please visit your profile and adjust your preferred view settings. You can choose to show your address, career information, social media sites, and more. You can even write a short blurb about what you're up to lately. If your information doesn't appear or if you see incorrect data, simply fill out the Update Your Personal Information form; headquarters will process your request and post the correct information on the next business day.

If you have questions about Sister Search, or if you make connections with a Theta sister and have a story to share with us, please let me know!

Now that a new school year is almost upon us for colleges and universities around North America, we at Theta headquarters see increased numbers of visits to the Fraternity website: Theta alumnae want to write letters of reference, chapter officers look for new ideas for their chapters, non-members seek information about Theta, and so much more.

When visiting the Fraternity website, here are a few tips:


  • Log in to experience the site at its fullest. You can view many more pages, forms, and documents when logged in.

  • Can't find something? Use the Search tool! We've recently enhanced it and customized all site pages and documents to appear when searching for something specific. Remember to log in to see all the search results!

  • Registering for the first time? Use the links in the blue login box on the home page to get started.

  • If you need your member ID and/or password sent to you, click the yellow question marks in the blue login box. You can have this information sent to you via the email we have on file. Remember to keep your member ID private, and not to share with anyone else!


And while you're here, remember to:

  • Upload any favorite photos using the Photo Zone. We love to see what members and chapters are doing!

  • Read the I Am a Theta stories posted in the I Am a Theta section to see what your sisters are up to, and how Theta has impacted their lives. While you're there, submit your own story, too!

  • Update your personal information so that Theta headquarters has your most up-to-date information. You can also help us find "lost" Thetas by seeing who are listed as "lost" from your college chapter.

  • Read the blogs, and comment on anything that might strike your fancy.

  • For alumnae, pay your per capita dues, if you do not currently belong to an alumnae chapter. It's a great way to help the Fraternity strive to complete its vision to provide the finest and most rewarding membership experience.


Have questions or need assistance with the website? Contact me at webmaster@kappaalphatheta.org. Thanks for visiting!

As you may have heard from others or read on this website, Kappa Alpha Theta is discontinuing inCircle, previously our official online community. This site enabled Theta collegians and alumnae to connect, form groups, view photos, and much more. Since its inception in 2007 and the exploding growth in Facebook usage within the past five years - particularly among our alumnae members - we at headquarters discovered that most members were using Facebook instead to do the same tasks (and more) that were being done on the inCircle site. So, the decision was made to end inCircle on May 15.

You might be asking how this affects you if you've created and/or maintained an inCircle profile. Anything you've posted in inCircle will be deleted (such as photos, job history, events, and announced opportunities). However, your Fraternity membership data (full name, chapter, school), and personal information you've provided to us via the Fraternity website (job, career, email, etc.) will remain intact and will continue to be stored in the Fraternity database at headquarters.

After hearing from many of you, we know that searching for sisters is very important! Later this year, we will roll out a Sister Search feature on the website that will enable you to search not only by name but career and major/minor, among other data, and to share personal information with other Thetas, such as photos, email address, Facebook page, and more.

Stay tuned for more information on the new Sister Search!

L-R: Gretchen Brown, membership coordinator, and Lou Simpson work together to keep members connected to the Fraternity.
Has graduation brought a change of address for you? Have you recently married? Will a change in jobs take you to a new address? Please do not forget to let Theta know when any of life's opportunities brings a new address, name change, or new career path. It is easy to do: Notify Theta HQ on the website, by email, or through your chapter's Permanent Alumnae Secretary (PAS).

A PAS is a chapter officer whose duties involve keeping chapter members connected with the Fraternity at large, and also updating Fraternity records by helping track down chapter members who have lost touch with Theta over the years. Your PAS can also put you in touch with sisters with whom you have lost contact. Check the website to find out who your chapter's PAS is and how to contact her.

Also, you can now log in to the site and see a list of chapter sisters who are currently "lost". If you know where they are—or if you are one of them!—let us know!

Theta is for a lifetime with a lifetime of friends. Stay in touch with them and with Theta. It is so important to keep your information up to date, and thanks to new technology that's constantly emerging, it's never been easier to do so!
