Reminder About Database Migration

EVANSTON, IL – As a reminder, Sigma Alpha Epsilon is migrating its database this coming weekend to a new hosting solution for a better, more friendly interface and experience. The down time will occur starting at 4:00 pm Central Time this Thursday, October 19, and our system should be back online Monday, October 23.

As a result, the members-only portion of and, more specifically, our chapter-management tools, will be offline. Also unavailable are the online certification programs at If you utilize either of those areas, here are vital details to keep in mind:

  • We highly encourage chapter officers to be proactive in reporting your new members or having them complete the Carson Starkey Certification Program and submitting your group for initiation before the down period begins this Thursday. Moreover, you should plan to do so by 12:00 noon Central Time. That way, you can ensure the data has been captured properly.
  • Groups will not be penalized during this transition with regard to reporting requirements. However, they must have those obligations fulfilled promptly once the system returns next Monday to avoid sanctions.

OmegaFi, the company providing our refreshed hosting solution, will be conducting two webinars to preview and explain the new, simplified process of adding and initiating members and paying invoices digitally:

Webinar: Chapter Officers - Training for Reporting
Monday, October 23 @ 3:00 pm Eastern Time
Wednesday, November 1 @ 11:00 am Eastern Time
Information about these sessions will be provided under separate cover.

These webinars will be recorded for viewing, and others may be scheduled as needed, to ensure the transition is smooth. Should you have any questions or issues, please contact Patrick Stiff, Chief Information Officer, at or at (847) 424-3007. We also have additional staff members available to detail the process.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to provide enhanced customer service to the Realm.
