Brief History of the Northeast Region Inc. 

Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc grew and geographical regions became necessary.  In 1946, the Boule' (National           meeting) established a committee to divide the states into regional districts. In October 1952, the Northeast        Region was established at the 7th Boule in Philadelphia, PA under Supreme Basileus, Anita K. Bass.              

In March 1953, the Northeast Region became the first officially organized region of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc.      This historic event took place at Provident Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.  At its inception, the region had seven  graduate chapters and one undergraduate chapter.  As of January 2016, there are 25 graduate chapters and 17 undergraduate chapters.  The representatives of the constituent chapters elect the Regional Director,                  who serves as the executive agent.  Providing guidance and direction for the chapters is one of the major       duties of the office.                                                                                                                                      

Our first Regional Director, Maezell D. Dickerson, of Gamma Chapter lead an outstanding organization.               Thorough the years, subsequent Directors have followed a steady course in developing innovative programs          and the awarding of financial gifts to worthy charitable groups.       

The Northeast Region of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc became Incorporated April 13, 2012.
