Continuous Open Bidding
Continuous Open Bidding (COB) is an informal process in which eligible chapters are permitted to host recruitment events. COB occurs during the fall and winter semesters and serves as an opportunity for young women to join participating National Panhellenic Conference sororities and our associate member sorority. Only eligible chapters may participate in COB so the number of chapters is subject to change each year. If a chapter is not participating in COB, they are not permitted to hold events or issue bids during this time.
Participating chapters plan and execute their own COB process and events. Chapters and potential new members (PNMs) are responsible for contacting each other to create opportunities to meet and become familiar with one another. Events differ but are typically casual and informal. Chapters and PNMs will be given contact information for one another through Michigan’s Panhellenic Association.
Students wishing to particate in COB must meet institutional eligiblilty requirements. Click here for informaiton on the process and how to verify your eligibility.
