National Panhellenic Conference


As early as 1891, sororities met to discuss matters of common interest. From such meetings evolved what we now know as the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). Founded in 1902, NPC is an umbrella organization for 26 inter/national women's fraternities and sororities. Each member group is autonomous as a social, Greek-letter society of college women and alumnae. Members are represented on over 620 college and university campuses in the United States and Canada and in over 4,600 alumnae associations, making up over 3.6 million sorority women in the world.

The National Panhellenic Conference exists to promote the values of and to serve as an advocate for its member groups in collaboration with those members, campuses and communities. NPC deals with topics such as membership recruitment to greater concerns like alcohol abuse on college campuses and maintaining positive relationships with our host colleges and universities.

Since it joined NPC in 1912, Kappa Delta has remained one of the most respected groups in NPC. It is one of the larger groups within the Conference, despite Kappa Delta's relative youth and the fact that, unlike a number of other sororities, it has never merged with another group. Each of the 26 member groups have a delegation, consisting of a Delegate and three Alternate Delegates, that represent the interests of their respective fraternity.

Kappa Delta's delegation members attend NPC biennial and interim meetings and regional College Panhellenic conferences, serve as advisors to various campus and alumnae Panhellenics, and hold a variety leadership positions as well as participate as active members of various Conference standing committees and task forces.
