On June 3, 1966, eleven visionary women chartered the Las Vegas Alumnae Chapter. Since that day, their efforts have led to innumerable acts of selfless service in the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Today, nearly 200 active Las Vegas members carry forth the tradition of encouraging and promoting scholarship, service and social action within our community as well as nationally and internationally.   The chapter service area includes the greater Las Vegas area known as Clark County, Nevada, which encompasses Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and Boulder City, Nevada.
