Alumnae Dues

Now, more than ever, it is imperative we showcase the long-lasting value of being a Sigma and help our collegiate chapters be as competitive as possible on their respective campuses. Alumnae dues play a vital role in our ability to provide an exceptional member experience and help ensure the future of Tri Sigma.

Here are just a few things Alumnae Dues support and steer Tri Sigma ever forward:

  • Resources and staffing for recruitment and expansion efforts, alumnae chapters, and national events. 
  • Leadership and personal development—including officer and volunteer training, member programming, and harm prevention education. 
  • Technology to support chapter training and operations, national events, and chapter websites. 
  • Printing and production of our magazine, The Triangle. 
  • The care and preservation of our archives. 
Thank you to our Lifetime Dues payers and Ever Forward Members for their lasting commitment to our sisterhood.
Alumnae Dues FAQ

Effective Dec. 1, 2023, annual alumnae dues are $50/year.

Lifetime Dues are $1,898 and may be paid by making a one-time payment of $1,898, or two payments of $94.90 due each year (on Feb. 1 and Aug. 1) for 10 years.

After careful consideration and evaluation, Executive Council voted to adjust the structure for annual and Lifetime Dues. It’s been more than 20 years since the last Lifetime Dues increase, and—in an ever-changing world where costs continue to rise—we must proactively plan for the future so we can continue to uphold the high standards and opportunities we offer to our members.

Alumnae dues are not required to remain in good standing, and membership in Tri Sigma is lifelong regardless of payment; however, alumnae dues are greatly appreciated and are a vital part of ensuring the longevity of our sisterhood.

Please note: National volunteers and C.A.B. members must maintain alumnae dues (annual or lifetime) as a requirement of their role.

In addition to the gratification from knowing you are advancing the mission of Tri Sigma, we are excited to announce alumnae dues payers, Lifetime Dues payers, and Ever Forward Members will receive these exclusive benefits beginning in 2024: 

Alumnae dues payers receive:

  • A printed copy of The Triangle magazine 
  • A digital issue of The Sigma Scoop, a newsletter exclusively for alumnae dues payers and Ever Forward Members, containing news and updates from NHQ each spring

Alumnae dues support sorority operations and ensure Tri Sigma’s ability to serve our members.

Both are important to the success of our sisterhood, and we are grateful for your generosity!

Lifetime Dues FAQ

Lifetime Dues are a commitment to Tri Sigma; they are a tangible way to demonstrate your dedication and support for the organization for years to come. This commitment involves a one-time payment of $1,898, or a payment plan of $94.90 due on Feb. 1 and Aug. 1 each year for 10 years.

Once an alumna has fulfilled their Lifetime Dues obligation, they become an Ever Forward Member—an exclusive status reserved for Tri Sigmas who have showcased a lifelong commitment to moving the sorority ever forward.

Previously, members who had fully paid their Lifetime Dues were known as Lifetime Alumnae; however, the name was updated to eliminate confusion surrounding lifetime membership in Tri Sigma. All members who have completed Lifetime Dues payments are now known as Ever Forward Members. 

Beginning Dec. 1, 2023, Lifetime Dues will increase to $1,898. This increase does not affect current payers. All current Lifetime Dues payers will continue paying toward their initial obligation of $1,050 and will become Ever Forward Members once complete. 

Members who have already received a Lifetime Alumna card do not need to remit more dues or replace their current card.

No, previous annual alumnae dues payments cannot be applied toward Lifetime Dues.

Members who miss two consecutive payments will be converted from Lifetime Dues payers to annual dues payers.

Please note: Members who enrolled in Lifetime Dues payments before Dec. 1, 2023, and miss two consecutive payments must re-enroll in Lifetime Dues at the $1,898 rate if they wish to resume payments to become an Ever Forward Member.
