As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, were not members of any Greek-letter organization. Under the administration of Soror Lullelia Harrison, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group. Zeta Amicae are affiliated through local chapters.
ZETA AMICAE MEMBERS:
Understand & are Committed -To the goals, principles, and practices of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
Attend Meetings - Their active and regular attendance at meetings is what gives a voice in the direction the organization will take. This includes participating in and having representation at meetings on the state, regional and national levels.
Actively Participate - Amicae Auxiliaries conduct community service projects on an ongoing basis. Many times it is in collaboration with the sponsoring Zeta Chapter. In addition, auxiliaries participate in special observances of the sorority, and conduct projects or programs related to the national programmatic thrusts.
Financially Support the Auxiliary - Every membership organization exists because its members are committed to advancing the principles, values and standards for which it purports. This support is tangibly demonstrated by members paying dues in a timely manner and through support of fund raising activities.
There are various Amicae chapters throughout the State of California. For additional information on Zeta Amicae, contact a local Zeta chapter.
