Share Your Opinion, Help Shape Future Communications and Resources

Alpha Phi Omega wants to hear from you! As an officer, you know what works for you and your chapter and what doesn't, and the Fraternity needs your feedback. A private Facebook group is being formed where you can discuss everything from social media to recruitment brochures. Connect with brothers from around the country and let the National Office hear your opinions.

If you would like to participate, email with the following information: your name, the best email address to contact you, your chapter and number of members and your anticipated graduation date.

Everyone is encouraged to submit information, but participation will be determined by the number of people who express interest and demographics represented. Students will be added to the group from a variety of regions, chapters, etc. to make the group as representative of the Fraternity as possible.
