Starting an Alumni Chapter

What is an alumni chapter?

Alumni chapters are AGO social & discipleship groups. They continue to fulfill the 3 pillars of inreach, brotherhood, and outreach by providing members with opportunities to pour into each other, other alumni, active collegiate chapters, and doing outreach. Whether the group meets for Bible study, meals, or outdoors activities, the structure of the meetings is up to the members to decide. Right now, there are only 5 alumni chapters: Bay Area, Colorado, Fresno, San Diego, and SLO.

Why make an alumni chapter?

Involvement in an alumni chapter is a rewarding and much needed opportunity to give back to the fraternity, providing avenues for greater active-alumni interactions, mentoring, and discipleship. Each alumni chapter also gets a vote at National Convention.
