During the NPC annual meeting, delegates approved revised articles and bylaws that created a new governing and volunteer structure for NPC. Here are the key aspects of this historic change:
- Rotating into the NPC chairmanship will no longer happen.
- A council of delegates (COD), consisting of one alumna representative from each member organization, will have primary responsibility for NPC membership and Panhellenic policies. The Alpha Sigma Alpha National President will serve as the Sorority’s representative. There will no longer be alternate delegates.
- A seven-member board of directors will consist of five members elected by the COD and two members appointed by their member organization on a rotational basis. Alpha Sigma Alpha will rotate onto the board in 2027 . Board members will begin their two-year terms July 1, 2019. The COD will also elect the NPC chairman from among these women. The board will lead NPC and establish corporate policy, set strategic direction, oversee and secure resources and monitor organizational performance.
- A chief Panhellenic officer, appointed by each member organization, will serve as the point person for campus-based information from NPC or volunteers, such as area advisors.
The intended result of the new structure is a nimble and more responsive NPC.
