Leading with Bold, Clear Vision
in service to Our Members.
The success that Phi Sigma Sigma enjoys, today, is largely due to the insight, discretion and passion our Supreme Council has devoted to the Fraternity for more than a century.
These dedicated women are the heart of Phi Sigma Sigma and are responsible for our Fraternity. They work in close partnership 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.
