Any person associated with or interested in the cosmetology profession may apply to join Alpha Chi Pi Omega. Membership is open to licensed stylists, barbers, students, nail technicians, estheticians, instructors, school owners, salon owners, beauty suppliers, and any person interested in the beauty profession.
The work of Alpha Chi Pi Omega is carried out within a local Chapter. As a national organization Chapters are formed in surrounding cities across the country . There are two types of Chapters:
The Professional Chapter – The Professional Chapter consist of persons who have completed their cosmetology, barber, or other professional training.
The Institutional chapter – The Institutional Chapter is created within a school setting and consists of students and instructors. The Institutional Chapter remains within the walls of the school, and those who graduate are encouraged to join a local Professional Chapter. If there is no Professional Chapter in your city, the National Staff will help you develop one.
There must be at least five (5) persons to form a Chapter. One of the five persons must be a male. The male will represent the fraternity and serve as the Polemarch of the Chapter.
As with all Sororities and Fraternities, all new members must go through a pledge period. You begin this process by submitting an application with the appropriate fee to the National Office. You will then be launched into the Pledge Club. Alpha Chi Pi Omega does not practice or condone any hazing.
