It is important to note legacy status in the recruitment process, particularly on recommendation forms. According to Alpha Chi Omega's policy, a legacy is a woman who is the sister, daughter, granddaughter or great-granddaughter of a member. Legacies are valued potential members during our recruitment process. Meeting these women is important to building loyalty to our sisters, but ultimately, membership is the decision of both the chapter and the woman going through recruitment. These decisions are often a matter of women finding a chapter and organization where they will be the happiest and have the most rewarding experience.
