All SAI chapters are encouraged to keep a chapter history and scrapbook and to add to it at the end of each fraternity year.

Chapter History Guidelines


(taken from the Chapter Procedures Manual, 2007 edition, p. 4-14.)

The editor is often the historian for the chapter. She keeps the scrapbook, and she adds a chapter to the chapter’s history at the end of each fraternity year. The annual chapter history record should include:

  • Names of all the officers for the year;
  • Names of all initiates and affiliates for the year;
  • A listing of musicales and special events;
  • Names of those who received honors, collegiate chapter contacts, major chapter decisions, number of members, and average attendance;
  • Pictures, programs, and newspaper clippings are essential material for the scrapbook
