Beta Sigma Phi sorority is an international women's social, cultural and service organization. Founded in 1931 to provide women with a social outlet, a cultural forum, and an opportunity for service, there are over 200,000 active members worldwide.
Chapters are located in 30 different countries, with chapters in every state in the United States and every province in Canada. Worldwide, chapters donate between 200 - 300,000 hours of time each year to charitable causes, and raise over $2 million annually.
Beta Sigma Phi is the largest Greek letter women's association in the world. It is not a secret group. Beta Sigma Phi is non-sectarian, non-political and not affiliated with any school or university. We do, however, have some chapters on school campuses.

Online Beta (OL102) is the second online Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. OLB was the first online chapter to welcome the very first online pledge - noted by L. Homan.
In July 2000, OLB Friendly Ventured Online Psi; receiving a four-star yardstick certificate for the effort.
On May 11, 2015, Robin Poitras was the first OLB sister to receive The Order of the Rose online.
NOTE: As more "firsts" are remembered, they will be posted here.
OLB is currently comprised of 36 (of a maximum of 50) active members throughout the United States and Canada. It was set up with a Career Chapter format, one meeting and one program a month, June through May. With exception to a few holiday weekends, our meetings start on the second Sunday of the month and continue through into the following Tuesday evening.
OLB allows members of other online chapters as well as those in a land chapter to make up a meeting for perfect attendance. Our meetings begin at 3:00 PM Eastern time (ET) the second Sunday of every month and last until 10:00 PM ET Tuesday.
If you wish to make up a meeting with OLB, please complete the meeting request form and submit it no later than the Friday prior to that Sunday's meeting. If we have room on our mailing list, you will be permitted to visit for a period of 10 days.
Our monthly program is announced just prior to the close of the meeting and the extra time after the meeting will allow you to take part in our program. We ask that you fill out this form and then click the submit button. OLB's 1st Vice President will contact you as soon as possible to let you know your request to make up a meeting with us has been approved.
As in a land chapter, we have an elected Executive Board, By-Laws and Standing Rules to guide us. Membership dues are $5.00 for the year and this covers the expense of hosting this website and having our own specific domain name.
