• The responsibility and privilege of choosing members belongs to the collegiate chapter with the guidance of the chapter advisory board and collegiate membership director, a national volunteer trained in legacy issues.
• A KD legacy is the daughter, granddaughter or sister of an initiated member in good standing.
A member in good standing is a member who has not resigned or is not on National Probation. Half and step relations are considered legacies if their KD family member in good standing considers them as such.
• Kappa Delta chapters give special consideration to each legacy and do not scrutinize legacies more intently than other potential new members (PNMs).
• A legacy should be a qualified PNM on her own in regard to scholarship, activities, accomplishments, honors and group compatibility. Being a KD legacy does not guarantee membership. Some chapters may have more legacies than spots available.
• If a legacy is to be released, it is done in a timely manner to allow her to be recruited by other sororities.
• There is a specific procedure for releasing a legacy that involves permission from the collegiate membership director or a National Council member.
• If a legacy accepts an invitation to a KD preference event, she will be placed on the chapter’s first bid list without exception.
• The alumna submitting this form will receive an acknowledgement from the chapter via email or USPS if no email is given. Since membership selection is confidential, no other communication will be forthcoming regarding the status of a legacy.
• Each legacy is encouraged to also have a KD recommendation written by someone who knows her personally. A Recommendation form is published in the spring issue of The Angelos or may be completed electronically by clicking here
. Please note that electronic recommendations are preferred
• Electronic Legacy Introduction forms and Recommendation forms will be automatically submitted to the email address of the chapter you provide.
