STEP 3 - Distribute Information Packets
Deliver or email your information packet to each Reference writer and Letter of Support writer as early as possible. It will take her time to complete your reference form. For sororities that request paper information packets, it is suggested to place all materials in a large envelope and mail or deliver to the writer(s). For sororities that request electronic submissions, attach your resume, transcript and photos and send by email to your writer(s).
It is a nice touch to send a handwritten thank you note thanking the alumna for her effort. Write the note a couple of weeks after giving them your information. They will appreciate it and if they have not already written their reference or letter of support for you the note will serve as a reminder for them to do it.
REMEMBER: It is the responsibility of the sorority members and NOT the potential new member to obtain these references and letters of support. However, it is to your advantage to network among family, friends, teachers and acquaintances to secure your own References and Letters of Support. The Alumna who agrees to support you is responsible for mailing the Reference or Letter of Support to their local reference chairwoman. Many of the Texas Schools and other major universities have a deadline of June 1 to receive this information.
