The Nashville city council is made up of Beta Sigma Phi sisters from chapters all over the area. Representation is voted on every two years and the executive council oversees decisions for the betterment of the organization as well as each individual chapter.
ABOUT Beta Sigma Phi
In 1931, during the Great Depression, there was a need for an organization that could bring women together and expose them to a social, cultural and educational climate that was not available in those difficult times.
Most important, there was a need for friendship and support from other women. Beta Sigma Phi was created out of this need. It did not take long before Beta Sigma Phis were helping others.
Today, our organization has reached over 150,000 annual members. Our members raise more than $3 million for local charities and donate over 200,000 volunteer hours in an average year. Each chapter determines its own service projects and participation is always voluntary. Chapters have created their own International Funds that donate millions of dollars to health research groups, hunger projects, and other worthwhile causes. Unlike a college sorority, our organization has members of all ages and educational backgrounds. Our sisterhood constantly redefines itself through the diversity and vitality of its members who share their ideas, talents and enthusiasm.
