Writing a “resignation letter from the Sorority.”

When writing a ” sorority resignation letter,” these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • The first step is to tell the chairperson about leaving the sorority and the final date as a member. Keep it short as the essential part of the letter is the last date of your membership.
  • Indicate the reason you are leaving the sorority. It would be best to be polite as you will leave a positive impression on your employer. Maintain your composure when drafting the letter.
  • Finally, thank your chairperson for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period.
  • Ensure you proofread your letter before sending it to your employer. You can send the letter to your family and friend to check for grammatical errors.

Sample 1:

“Dear Madam President,

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from membership in the Zeta Zeta chapter of the Gamma Alpha Zeta sorority at Academic University.

Due to financial reasons, I am unable to maintain my membership in Gamma Alpha Zeta.

I have greatly enjoyed my time as a member of Gamma Alpha Zeta. And I appreciate the experiences and opportunities Gamma Alpha Zeta has provided me to grow not only as a better Sister of the chapter but as a woman as well.

Until my official resignation date, I will continue to be a loyal Sister of the chapter and do whatever I can to make the resignation process as smooth as possible. Please let me know the next steps to complete the termination of membership.

I hope for nothing but growth for all the Sisters of Gamma Alpha Zeta, and I hope to continue my connections with the Sisters of the chapter even after my resignation.

Best regards,

Jane Doe”

Sample 2:

“Dear madam president,

I am writing today in recognition of my membership resignation. The dismissal of the painful, lived experiences of my sisters of color amplifies every reason to leave this organization. There is nothing that can be said or done that would ever undo the invalidations that motivated this chain of mass drops. It’s plain and simple — if this organization cannot provide an equitable experience for all members, then I want no part of it. A web of tangible changes has been in the works all summer, and at each checkpoint with leadership, I have watched my sisters lose glimmers of hope in their eyes. 

Every single avenue to make change within the organization has been exhausted, and still, there is a deep misunderstanding of why this work is so excruciatingly necessary as an absolute top priority. The womxn of the DEI committee willingly handed over their time, energy, and love, only to be met with feelings of indifference. It is hard to express how many times I had to watch my sisters cry, scream, and recount painful memories in Greek Life only to be dismissed after each processing meeting to maintain “stability” within the chapter. The silence was never stable. Silence has been driving a wedge through our chapter all summer. 

Our work as a committee highlighted institutional racism at the core. What we quickly learned was the system was operating exactly as it intended to — keeping individuals comfortable and deflecting any tangible changes the chapter asked for. I cannot sit in an organization knowing there are such deep barriers to change. We witnessed this in the prioritization of recruiting new members over the safety of women of color. 

I am hurt watching many beautiful, whole sisters have to compromise their identities for the comfort of the National organization. Our voices are our biggest tool, and if we aren’t even given a platform to be listened to, then there is simply no hope. 

What always made Chi Omega so special was the fabric of interconnectedness. Our identities, involvements, and passions brought us such a rich diversity of humans in one collective community. However, what we absolutely cannot pick and choose, is which diversity we decide to celebrate. I thought I joined an organization that found beauty in difference, but it has become so blatantly clear that diversity is only celebrated when it is something that can be tokenized in a way that benefits the organization. 

These womxn show me the sisterhood that I have always been searching for, and I am confident that I will hold onto it as I sever my ties to the National organization. These words come from a place of deep pain, but they in no way break the bonds I have formed with so many of you in this chapter. 

I will always be here, cheering you on to see you grow. I am always a resource, a space for processing, a hand to hold, truly whatever you need. I trust that each of you will make the best decision possible for your people, and I will never judge you for what you feel is best. I am with you, always. 

Love always,

Kate Armstrong (she/her)”
