The Interfraternal World

Alpha Epsilon Phi prides itself on its involvement and leadership in the interfraternal world. AEPhi became a full member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) in 1951.  As one of the 26 national/international sororities that belong to NPC, AEPhi has taken its turn in the rotation of leadership.  Beth Kersten Saul served as chairman of the NPC from 1987 to 1989 becoming not only the first AEPhi to do so but also the first Jewish woman to hold this position.  Within NPC, Connie Savitt Sandler has served as president of the National Panhellenic Editors Conference and Bonnie Rubenstein Wunsch has been president of the Executive Directors Association.  Today, our delegation members serve as the chairman or a member of the following committees: advisory, alumnae Panhellenics, awards, bylaws/minutes review, collegiate Panhellenics, liaison and publications.

Bonnie Rubenstein Wunsch was one of the first female executives to join the Fraternity Executives Association (FEA), served as their president for 2008-2009 and continues to serve as sponsors chair.  She has also been president of FIPG, Inc., a risk management consortium of over 40 mens and womens fraternal organizations. 

AEPhi also holds membership in the Fraternity Communications Association (formerly the College Fraternity Editors Association).  During her tenure as editor, Connie Savitt Sandler, was active in the organization and served on their board.

Several members of AEPhi have been active within the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA).  AEPhi also continues to be a proud supporter of the AFA Foundation.

Both undergraduates and alumnae have been active participants in the many regional interfraternal conferences (NGLA, SEPC, AFLV-Western, AFLV-Central).  The same can be said of participation with the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and support of their programs.

Alpha Epsilon Phi believes in strong, cooperative partnerships with other like-minded organizations.  We are proud of our long history of involvement in the interfraternal community and are always looking for new opportunities to collaborate with interferaternal partners.
