Central Iowa Alumnae Panhellenic Association

June Newsletter

Our mission is to connect Central Iowa women who are alumnae members of the 26 groups of the National Panhellenic Conference. We aim to connect these women socially, professionally, and philanthropically by planning events and promoting the events of local alumnae chapters.

We also aim to help young women from the Central Iowa area who are interested in joining the Greek community to become informed about the benefits of Greek life.

Stay connected and follow us on Facebook.
