The success that Phi Sigma Sigma enjoys today largely is due to the insight, discretion, and passion our Supreme Council has devoted to the Fraternity for nearly a century.
These dedicated women are the heart of Phi Sigma Sigma and are responsible for our Fraternity. Supreme Council works closely with Fraternity volunteers, Headquarters staff, the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, and the National Housing Corporation.
Supreme Council is committed to serving Phi Sigma Sigma and opening the lines of communication among its members.
To get in touch with a Supreme Council member, please contact them through our Headquarters 410-799-1224 | 410-799-9186 FAX | email@example.com.
