Member Competencies

What makes Gamma Phi Beta’s educational programming unique is that all of our programming is centered on our member competencies.

Gamma Phi Beta is proud of the educational programming we offer for our members. What makes Gamma Phi Beta’s educational programming unique is that all of our programming is centered on our member competencies.

So, what is a competency? It’s a description of knowledge, skills or abilities that a person should be able to demonstrate. And our member competencies were designed with one goal in mind: to develop women who are not only great Gamma Phi Betas, but confident leaders, active community members and well-rounded women.

Gamma Phi Beta’s member competencies apply to women at all stages of membership within the organization, from Bid Day to alumnae membership to service at the highest levels of the Sorority. Our focus on developing members as whole people, not just Sorority women, sets us apart.
