GREATER TAMPA AREA ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION
Chartered April 12, 2014

On behalf of the sisters of the Greater Tampa Area Alumnae Association of Theta Phi Alpha Fraternity, let us welcome you to our website.  The GTAA consists of alumnae from various chapters who have come to reside on the west coast of Florida in the areas between Gainesville, Tampa and Sarasota.  We began as an alumnae club and gained much support from the Central Florida Alumnae Association which has members in Daytona and Orlando.  We have alumnae ranging from fresh out of college to season alumnae celebrating 20+ years of membership and we are always welcoming new members throughout the year to join us at events.   We are leaders in the community, fulfilling our national sorority's mission to create close comradeship, to advance educational, social and philanthropic interests and leadership training; to encourage spiritual development and adherence to the highest moral standards; and to promote lifelong bonds of friendship.   You will be able to find anything you need to know about the GTAA throughout this website, so feel free to look around and ask questions. Thank you for visiting - contact us at tampabay@thetaphialpha.org for more information.
