Alpha Kappa Alphas greatest asset is her membership. We consider every member a precious pearl. Reclaiming and retaining our membership is at the heart of our sorority. Chi Sigma Omega members are proud to be one of the over 997 Chapters and 283,000 members of AKA. We invite you to consider Chi Sigma Omega as your chapter home.
To achieve the goals of Alpha Kappa Alpha, SERVICE TO ALL MANKIND, as well as maintain our high profile of being an asset and benefit to our community, Chi Sigma Omega draws on its diverse constituency of women representing a variety of professions, interests and talents. The great diversity of our chapter helps to foster strong and sincere bonds of sisterhood, while serving our community. Sisterhood with a SMILE. Additionally, we seek to expand our reach to more women who share a sincere interest in serving the community.
