Graduate Communication Services

Did you know chapters who communicate regularly with their graduate brother operate more efficiently and have a higher number of graduate volunteers and donor? At the International Headquarters, our goal is to help all chapters communicate with their graduate brothers, so we have provided chapters with inexpensive, hassle-free communication services.
