Attention Members of Gamma Zeta Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,
In light of recent events, the Board of Directors is releasing this official statement regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
First, we are ordering that all fraternal activities be conducted virtually immediately. This includes all activities regularly conducted in person such as chapter meetings. This recommendation falls in line with precautions taken by many universities nationwide where classes are being conducted on-line.
Second, for the time being we are putting all aspects of the new membership education program on hold until further notice. We will follow up with all active chapters in the coming days with further instructions.
Most importantly, we want to provide the best guidance and resources to ensure the health and safety of all of our members, prospective members, and allies.
We have put together a COVID-19 web page on our national website where we will provide a list of resources and updates on organization operations.
We understand that campus closures may heavily affect those faced with housing related difficulties. U-Haul is offering free storage for up to 30 days, as well as discounted rates for moving vehicles. You can find a local storage center by visiting the U-Haul website. Space and availability may be limited so act quickly.
If you are at risk of being without shelter due to impacts of campus closures, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist you in finding shelter or housing resources in your area.
Please be cognizant of the danger that xenophobia can present during this time. Do your best to keep each other safe, especially those most vulnerable among us.
For regular updates on the COVID-19 pandemic please see the following:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 Situation Summary
- CDC FAQs
- University of California Response
- California State University Response
- For all private/out of state chapters please visit our COVID-19 web page for links to your universities official statements
We are diligently working with our peers from the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO), the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA), and other Greek lettered serving entities to come up with the best solutions during this time. We will continue to send out information and updates as needed. In the meantime, please contact the Board of Directors with any questions or concerns.
