Membership in Alpha Chi Omega is for a lifetime. Our sisterhood bond is strong, no matter which college you attended or city you live in. Membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha alumnae chapter provides opportunities to develop new friendships and get involved in fun activities. Our members live throughout metro Detroit and bring diverse backgrounds to create a lively group with a variety of interests and experiences to share.
As of September, 2022, AOA has a tiered dues system. Members can choose between four dues tiers to best fit their goals for their AOA experience. The Carnation tier ($40) is our young alumna option: full membership for any sisters graduating within the last two school years; Golden tier ($45) offers a sustaining membership for sisters who may not be able to attend events regularly but still want to support the chapter; Lyre tier ($55) is a standard, full membership for our general alumnae; and the Pearl tier ($75) offers an honored membership for any women who choose to go above and beyond in their support of the chapter. In addition, every five Pearl memberships each year will sponsor one Carnation membership for a new member.
Annual dues include monthly scheduled programs, the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation and other philanthropic activities. Additional fees may apply for activities such as happy hours, dinners, special outings, and other events/activities. Our programming year runs from September through August, so it is best to pay your dues in the fall and you will be covered and receive membership benefits for the full year!
