Greater Louisville Alumnae Chapter
Greater Louisville uses a variety of media platforms to communicate with existing and potential members, including Facebook, e-newsletters sent via mail chimp, and its website. The programming calendar is posted to all three platforms and updated on a regular basis. The chapter sends a quarterly newsletter to all members and encourages the VPARs for Zeta Alpha, Alpha Chi, and Alpha Theta to post their newsletters in its Facebook group, and it distributes the collegiate chapter newsletters through its MailChimp database, which is updated when new zip code directories are circulated.
