The Greater

Beta Lambda Sigma Chapter

Chartered on December 10, 1949, our charter members were school teachers dedicated to educating youth in their community. Currently, the chapter consists of retired and active members in the fields of education, business, media, medicine, marketing and city government. Several members have served on community executive boards and in non-profit organizations like the NAACP, the Junior League of Raleigh and The Links. Beta Lambda Sigma Raleigh Alumnae Chapter focuses its energy on supporting the national programs of the sorority.


Group spa days, karaoke nights, wine tastings, road trips… this is how the women of Beta Lambda Sigma (more affectionately known as “BLS”), have forged a very tight bond.  Our saying “where great meets greater” keeps us encouraged to always set aside time to grow as true sisters.


In addition to supporting high scholastic achievements for our youth, the members of BLS have supported each other through continuing education programs.  We represent an array of post-baccalaureate certificates/credentials, Master’s and Doctorate degrees


BLS has been committed to providing stellar service to the residents of  Wake County since 1949.  By offering scholarships, mentor programs and various seminars/resources dedicated to healthy living, the women of Beta Lambda Sigma continue to address the issues that affect the Capital City.
