Welcome Portland Kappas!


If you would like to connect with Kappa on a local level, we invite you to become a member of the Portland Alumnae Association.  As a member, you will receive our newsletter, Kappa Key Notes quarterly emails, invitations to association and interest group events, and our Membership Directory printed every fall. You will also have the opportunity to strengthen your leadership skills as an Association Board member or as an Advisory or House Board member at local chapters, Beta Omega or Gamma Mu. Simply becoming a member of the Association is a chance to give back to Kappa.
Common reasons a Kappa sister does not reach out to her local Alumnae Association:
  • Too busy? Even complicated lives need a little break from regular routines. Kappa offers close, intergenerational friendships that connect us from our college days to retirement.

  • I don’t know anyone! Come to one event and you will. Our association has a wide variety of activities that offer you chances to make new friends and network with a group of talented women.

  • What’s in it for me?  Lots of things! Friendship, certainly. Opportunities to be involved with Kappa's philanthropies. Working with a local chapter as an adviser or house board member at the University of Oregon or Oregon State University.

  • I was never active in my chapter. I don’t even remember what my chapter was called. Don’t worry! There’s never a quiz and we can look up your chapter information for you. We have great fun sharing stories…”at my chapter we did it this way…” and love meeting other Kappas.

Interest Groups

Our active groups:

  • Night Owls
