Since 1940, chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, realized the importance and the valuable contributions of women who chose a different educational path than college. Though many women affiliated with Zeta chapters served in organized auxiliaries, their place in the sisterhood was made official when National President Lullelia Harrison included in her report to the 1948 Boule’ a recommendation that chapters be allowed to organize auxiliaries known as Zeta “Amicae” (Friends of Zeta).
The Amicae auxiliary provides an opportunity for professional women to be affiliated with Zeta and assist the sorority with providing positive, proactive, and far-reaching community service, both nationally and internationally. Today, Amicae auxiliaries are in all eight regions of Zeta Phi Beta and have continued to render invaluable community service and thousands of dollars helping Zeta extend their outreach to the communities where they live and serve.
Zeta values our Amicae and embraces the concept that all women, no matter their educational level, have the ability to reach their full potential in all areas of their lives to create and achieve unlimited opportunities. We invite you to consider joining our pursuits of providing world-class service to the communities in which we serve. We encourage you to visit this site frequently for updates and new resources that will keep you engaged and informed about the Amicae.
As early as 1940, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated had begun to realize the importance of the prestige, good will, unity, and cooperation of women who for various reasons were not members of any Greek-letter organizations.
These women were organized into auxiliaries, but it wasn’t until 1948 when Grand President, Lullelia Harrison included in her report to the 1948 Boule’ in session, a recommendation that chapters be allowed to organize auxiliaries and all such auxiliaries be known as Zeta “Amicae” (Friends of Zeta).
Today Amicae Auxiliaries are in all eight regions of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and have and continue to render invaluable community service and thousands of dollars helping Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated extend their outreach to the communities where they live and serve.
