Values-based recruitment, which is practiced by all National Panhellenic Conference organizations, focuses on meaningful conversations between collegiate members and Potential New Members with the goal of recruiting women who will have a positive impact on chapters and the Panhellenic community. When a chapter uses Pi Phi's six core values as the foundation on which they recruit their members, a focus is placed on conversation and creating a sincere connection with each woman that walks through the door.
What Pi Beta Phi stands for is not a secret! Our values are included in our mission statement, our tagline and throughout our Ritual. Examples of Pi Phis living our values in their daily life can be found all over our social media, The Arrow® and throughout each chapter.

Tips for Recruitment
Recruitment can be a nerve wrecking and intimidating process for a lot of women, but I promise it’s not as scary as you think. Each chapter member has once been in your shoes, anxiously awaiting bid day at the end of that long week. We know you’ve probably heard it a million times before, but BE YOURSELF. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you aren’t. The purpose of recruitment is to find your home away from home. To find your best friends, your bridesmaids, your sisters. When you are your true self, you allow those around you to see your heart and your values, and recruitment is where you find where those values align. Trust the process, talk with your Rho Gammas, and even open up to the women that are recruiting you. Like I said, we have all been in your shoes. Try to have fun, make memories, and connect with the other PNM’s around you. Maybe you’ll meet your first college friend! Recruitment is such an exciting time, and just remind yourself that after that crazy week of talking to so many women, you will have found the home of a lifetime! Your wings are waiting, we can’t wait to meet you.
