Introduce a Potential New Member

Kappa Alpha Theta appreciates the efforts of its members who recommend outstanding young women for membership. The process of identifying qualified potential new members (PNMs) is a responsibility and a privilege that is shared by collegians and alumnae. Therefore, both are welcome and encouraged to write a reference form (also known as a recommendation letter) for qualified PNMs.

You may complete a form if you are an alumna member of the Fraternity in good standing or an active college member of a chapter different than the one that a potential new member is seeking to join.

For more information regarding changes to recruitment for the upcoming school year, please visit the Coronavirus Update web page.

Online Reference Form

After submitting the completed form, it will be sent to the college chapter's chief recruiting officer (CRO) of the school where the potential new member (PNM) is attending.

Submit the Form

What Is a "Legacy"?

A Theta legacy is defined as a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, or sister of a Kappa Alpha Theta member. Stepdaughters, step-granddaughters, step-great-granddaughters, and stepsisters are considered legacies if their family considers them as such and if the family asks that they be considered as such on the Potential New Member Recommendation Form.

There is no such thing as an indirect legacy (i.e., cousin, niece), and such persons are not given special consideration.

You can indicate that a PNM is a legacy through the Potential New Member Recommendation Form.
