Introduce a Potential New Member
Kappa Alpha Theta appreciates the efforts of anyone who recommends outstanding young women for membership. The process of identifying qualified potential new members (PNMs) is a responsibility and a privilege for our college chapters – and you are an important part. Therefore, you are welcome and encouraged to submit a Potential New Member (PNM) Introduction Form for qualified PNMs. This form is referred to as a RIF (reference information form) or LOS (letter of support) by other Greek organizations, and previously known by Theta as the reference letter or recommendation letter.
Any person, regardless of membership, is able to submit. To learn more about why Kappa Alpha Theta is using an introduction form that anyone can submit, read the Potential New Member Introduction FAQ.
Online Introduction Form
After submitting the completed form, it will be sent to the college chapter's vice president membership (VPM) of the school where the potential new member (PNM) is attending.Submit the Form
Printable Introduction Form
You may also choose to send the form via regular mail. Simply download and print the form, and mail it to the recruitment team at the chapter of the school where the PNM is attending. Find the facility mailing address in the Recruitment Information Report below.
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.
There is no such thing as an indirect legacy (i.e., cousin, niece), and such persons are not given special consideration.
You can indicate if a PNM has any family connections to Theta through the PNM Introduction Form.
