Beginning with Delta Zeta’s Founders, leadership has been a hallmark of the Sorority. Likewise, creating leadership opportunities for women has become a focal point collegiate and alumnae members. As a member led organization, women are leading recruitment, member education, personal development, philanthropy initiatives and service efforts in all of our chapters. Chapter leaders are part of an executive board with advisory support from alumnae who act as mentors and a layer of management/leadership between local operations and the national sorority.

Delta Zeta women are empowered to lead and serve. It starts with our governance and is a skill transferable to our personal and professional lives.

An elected board establishes Delta Zeta Sorority’s vision and strategic plan. The board, known as the National Council, has been key to that insightful leadership for over 100 years. Today’s National Council continues to lead the organization from a long-held set of core values, ensuring a strong and essential organization for our members and one that truly impacts the world.

Other formal elements of our model include chapters supported by a region-directed leadership team. Currently there are 10 collegiate regions and 5 alumnae areas.

Chapter officers are elected and appointed by their chapter members. Officer educational materials are provided to each chapter. Delta Zeta chapters abide by our National Constitution, Standing Rules and Policies and their chapter bylaws and standing rules.
