Petition to Charter for New/Returning Chapter

Welcome and Introduction

Brothers and Friends,

Each year, the General Fraternity excitedly welcomes new and returning chapters through a chartering and recognition process. This form is intended to collect the required information necessary for the Administrative Office staff, Board of Trustees, and General Convention to assess a chapter's health, operations, and achievements. Please review this page of introductory information carefully before moving on to the next page.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Petition forms must be received by December 1 for consideration at the next General Convention. For consideration at the 184th General Convention in Dallas, Texas, petitions must be received by Thursday, December 1, 2022.

If you have questions or concerns about the chartering process, please contact your assigned staff support team. In their absence or for general questions, please contact Director of Chapter Services Jacob Tidwell, East Carolina '04 at jacob.tidwell@beta.org or 800.800.BETA (x2382).
