Carole Jones, NPC Chairman 2017-19, will join DAP and speak at the 2019 Alumni Awards Luncheon.
Carole Jones comes into the chairmanship of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) as the fourth member of Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity to hold the position in rotation. As chairman, she directs the mission and vision of NPC and represents the organization at various conferences and meetings to advocate for the sorority experience. She began her NPC service in 2003 when she was appointed as delegate for Alpha Omicron Pi. Carole has served as an NPC area advisor, chairman of the University Document Review Committee, chairman of the Extension Committee and has led several task forces.
Her service to the fraternal community began when she pledged Alpha Omicron Pi at the University of Alabama where she served as chapter president. Upon graduation, Carole immediately became engaged on the local level with the Huntsville Alumnae Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi and later became an Alpha Omicron Pi international volunteer. She served as regional director, regional rush officer, international rush chairman, executive board director of programming and international president.
By working alongside sorority women, Carole encourages them to lead the way for collaboration and work together on ways to tell their sorority stories. Serving NPC is her way of helping to ensure the fraternal experience is preserved for future generations.
