FAQs

When are Dallas Tri Delta Alumnae Dues due?

Our fiscal year is June 1 – May 31, and we collect dues on-going throughout the year. However, if you wish to be included in the membership directory, the deadline for paying your dues is August 15.

 

What do my dues go toward?

A portion of all dues are paid to the Tri Delta Executive office; this represents the National portion of our dues. The remaining local portion of our dues cover membership-related costs including: programs and special events for all members, legacy and reference support, support of our local philanthropy and direct membership support (Directory, mailings, website maintenance).

 

What does it mean to be Life Loyal and how do I know if I am Life Loyal?

This means you made a one-time donation to the Tri Delta Life Loyal Foundation at Executive Office; it exempts you from paying the National portion of your dues, meaning you only pay the local portion of your dues.  Life Loyal members have a unique membership number, issued by Executive Office. This is completely separate from your local Dallas Tri Delta alumnae dues.  Life Loyal membership has additional features and benefits that can be found at www.tridelta.org.

 

How do I access the online Membership Directory?

All dues paid members will be able to access an electronic version of our Membership Directory  via our website.  ALL dues paid members can access the directory online via the “Deltas Only” private side of our website.  Once you pay your alumnae dues, you will receive a confirmation email. This email will contain log-on information so that you can access that information.

 

What do I do if I want a printed copy of the Membership Directory?

This year, we are asking members to opt-in to receive a printed copy of the Directory.  The printing and mailing of our Membership Directory is one of the costliest things we produce, so we are trying hard to cut down on excess cost. We are evaluating going to a bi-annual printing of the Directory. Please remember that you must choose to say “yes, I wish to receive the Directory” on your membership form, otherwise the online version will be the only one available to you.

 

What if I can’t remember if I paid my Alumnae Dues?

All members will receive a confirmation of their dues payment. It is recommended that you save this document for reference throughout the year.  If you need assistance confirming your membership, please contact our Membership Chairman, Dawn Hall.

 

I am new to the area and want more information about the Dallas Alumnae Group?

I know of a local area Tri Delta Legacy, but I am not sure if she is registered with the local Tri Delta Alumnae Chapter?

On the home page, click on the Legacy link to record legacy information.  Legacies are considered daughters or sisters of Tri Deltas.

 

I paid my dues online in the last membership year, do I have to re-enter my information again?

Yes, because our new website does not have an imbedded database, you must re-enter your information each year. We have done this in an effort to protect the privacy of our members, so all previously recorded information, as well as former member user names and passwords have been deleted. Thank you for recording all required fields on our new 2017-2018 membership form; we appreciate your patience with this. Be sure to carefully examine your entries, because your information will be recorded into our database as it is supplied by you.

 

What if I don’t wish to receive any email information from Dallas Tri Delta Alumnae, but would like to receive paper invitations to events and special programs?

Please be sure to include your request for paper mailings and opt-out of any email communications.

 

What if my contact information changes after I pay my dues? How do I update my name, address, phone or email information?

Please contact our membership chairman, Dawn Hall with all changes and updates.

 

I read in the Trident that the State of Texas boasts the largest number of dues-paid Tri Delta alumnae in the country, with Houston having the largest number of dues-paid alumnae, and Dallas the second largest. Is this true?

It is true, and with your support, we can beat Houston!
