Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion web page provides updates on Kappa Alpha Theta's actions regarding our efforts on inclusion and diversity within our organization.
Alumnae chapters offer a variety of programs and events to meet the needs and interests of their membership. These could include community volunteer involvement, networking opportunities, philanthropic projects, social events, and meetings with themes or guest speakers. Many alumnae chapters also offer "special interest" groups, such as a downtown lunch group, a gardening group, or a recent graduates group.
You don't have to wait for an invitation! An alumna is always welcome at an alumnae chapter gathering. And alumnae chapter membership is a small time commitment: You can participate in as many events/projects as you choose.
Members of alumnae chapters pay annual per capita dues of $31 to the Fraternity through their alumnae chapters. Chapters determine an additional amount for local dues to cover chapter operating expenses.

An alumnae circle is less structured than a chapter. Two members serve as contact persons for the group so they can remain connected to the Fraternity. Circle groups are encouraged to meet at least one time during the year (Founders Day, for example) and to support the Fraternity by paying dues in the spring.
An alumnae circle may choose to offer as many or as few events as pleases its membership. Its members may meet for periodic lunches or to enjoy a common interest, such as filling backpacks for CASA kids, attending plays, forming a book club, or playing cards.
Circle members are encouraged to pay per capita dues to the Fraternity in the spring, but it is not a requirement. Each year, circle contacts are asked to send an updated list of members to Theta headquarters and have members remit dues at that time. If an event scheduled by a circle requires funding, each member pays her own way because there is neither a treasurer nor a circle checking account.
