As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. had begun to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who were not eligible to be members of any Greek-letter organization.



In 1948 a group of three women organized to assist Zeta Phi Beta Sorority members in whatever capacity they were needed.  They chose the Latin name Amicae (Friends) for their auxiliary.  The first chartered group was given to Lambda Zeta Chapter of Houston, Texas.  The first undergraduate chapter to present an auxiliary was Kappa Alpha of Miners Teachers College, Washington, D.C. on February 23, 1949 during Kappa Alpha’s Finer Womanhood Program.​

Today, these auxiliaries have rendered invaluable services to the sorority and their communities.  They are located  in areas wherever there are active chapters of Zeta Phi Bea Sorority, Inc.  Each local Amicae Auxiliary is a member of a state-wide Zeta Amicae Conference in which rules, regulations, policies and procedures apply to the state as a group.  This structure is also applicable to Regional and National levels within the organization.  These larger bodies provide an excellent forum for networking with Amicae from other auxiliaries, a chance to garner successful programming ideas, and stay current with your knowledge of information and activities on a broader scale.  The ultimate value is that you develop relationships that last a lifetime.

SPZ Celebrates Finer Womanhood in the Community!

Meet the ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Sigma Phi Zeta Chapter of Waukegan, IL

A Finer Woman is someone who epitomizes the true ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. She is seen by all as a leader and sets the example of a true woman of excellence. She is strong and principled and demonstrates great moral character. Finer women do not degrade other women yet seeks opportunities to uplift every woman to her true measure of brilliance. With this in mind, the women of Sigma Phi Zeta conduct themselves in a manner that represents the positive standards of the organization, and throughout the month of March, we will celebrate and showcase the women we feel exemplify the Finer Womanhood characteristics in the Lake County community, as well.
