Frequently Asked Questions

What volunteer opportunities are there for me with Sigma Alpha Epsilon?

The volunteer structure has numerous opportunities: on the local level as chapter adviser or house corporation member, regionally as a province archon or province council member, and nationally as a board member or committee member. Less structured volunteer opportunities are also available. Consider mentoring an officer or undergraduate member, helping your chapter conduct a goal-setting retreat or an initiation ceremony, sharing career-planning tips or helping seniors prepare résumés.

How do I join an alumni association?

Any member in good standing can join an alumni association upon paying the annual dues, which are set by the association. Many associations print member newsletters and communicate via e-mail. SAE has area and chapter alumni associations that have different objectives. Area alumni associations operate in metropolitan areas and focus on social events and professional networking, while chapter alumni associations have a relationship with a specific chapter and host events that benefit or relate to that chapter. Registered alumni associations pay annual dues of $100 to the Fraternity Service Center. Dues provide for service to alumni associations by the Fraternity Service Center and voting rights at the biennial conventions. There are also many local alumni associations autonomous from the Fraternity Service Center that operate with success. The alumni associations can be found on the directory section of this website or by contacting Associate Executive Director of Alumni and Chapter Services Deran Abernathy at
