GKAPA is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) and represents twenty of the twenty-six NPC groups.Â GKAPA provides a free service to graduating high school seniors, as well as existing college women who are interested in becoming a member of any of the twenty-six NPC groups.Â The services provided are educational as to the process of joining a group, expectation of group membership and assistance with providing the necessary letters of recommendation that are often required by University Panhellenic Groups.Â GKAPA is unique in that no other Houston Area Alumnae Panhellenic Group provides the letter of recommendation services to the young women they serve.Â
