Xi Beta is a newly formed chapter. Our current membership is comprised of 13 active members, ranging in age from late 20's to early 40's. Our members are single, married and married with children. Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, meetings are held in members homes or special locations as decided by members programs. The first meeting of the month is a business meeting and the second meeting in the month is our program meeting. Each member throughout the year is responsible to present a program. The programs that are planned vary in style and format, usually lasting about 30 minutes which then allows time for socializing.
Why Consider Xi Beta?
As a new chapter, Xi Beta is looking for members with fresh ideas and a desire to make new friends. We are developing the traditions for our chapter as we go and we would love to have members with varied backgrounds to assist in that creativity. We are an active chapter of women who want to be involved and consider sorority a key part of their social lives whether you are single or married, a career women or stay at home mom we think Xi Beta is a great group to be part of!
