The Orlando Area Council of Beta Sigma Phi has over 100 very active sisters in 10 chapters. City Council Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month in September, October, November, January, February, March, April, & May at 7:00 p.m. at 9403 Kerr Court, Orlando, FL 32817 (Please check under the events tab as meeting venues may change.)
The purpose of OAC is to coordinate inter-chapter harmony, and to provide a way for the members of chapters to correlate their planning and activities for area wide events and to pass on information of interest in the area. OAC's purpose is not to legislate, but to recommend, to guide, and to foster cooperation and harmony in keeping with the ideals of Beta Sigma Phi.
Our area council meetings are open meetings and the entire membership of every chapter listed should be encouraged to attend. Visiting Beta Sigma Phi sisters and guests are welcome at all OAC council meetings and citywide events.
If you are a transferring member or new to Beta Sigma Phi, please fill out the Interest Survey for Prospective Members and Transferees and email it to the Vice President or President so that we can help you find a chapter that is right for you.
Thank you for visiting our OAC website! We look forward to meeting soon!
Where It All Started....
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 Phi's were helping others. Typical chapters enjoy socials that range from informal gatherings to gala affairs that often include friends and family. Fascinating cultural programs offer insight into subject that range from the arts to gardening to in-home businesses. Membership in our organization provides opportunities to contribute to your community, develop lifelong friendships, and polish leadership skills. That is why we are known around the world as "The Friendship Organization". Find out more about Beta Sigma Phi! We're dedicated to helping women fulfill their lives. Whether your fulfillment lies in making new friends, helping your community, or just finding time for you -- the choice is yours!
