Message from Basileus

Hello! On behalf of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc., Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter, welcome to our website. Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter has served the Greater Rochester area for more than four decades and we remain committed to contributing to the betterment of our community. As President of Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter, I am excited to lead Theta Alpha Zeta's charge to improve the lives of residents of the city where I was born and raised.

In Greater Rochester, we strive to make a difference by enacting Zeta Phi Beta's national projects locally. We help our neighbors by way of Zeta Phi Beta initiatives including the Z-Hope Project (Zetas Helping Other People Excel), collaborative partnerships with the March of Dimes and American Cancer Society and our local partnerships that help to improve the lives of youth, elders and families.

We invite you to take a look around our website and to follow Theta Alpha Zeta Chapter on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you have any questions, or are a community organization that is interested in partnering with us, do not hesitate to reach out.

Warm Regards,

Sheila Rayam, President
