In 1929, Mrs. Lola M. Parker of Chicago, Illinois founded Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, a national business and professional women's organization. The sorority was established to offset the results caused by the great depression and to add prestige to career businesswomen and the field of business.
In July 1936, Psi Chapter was chartered with 14 wonderful women of Dallas. Mrs. Janye C. Tillman and Alma I. Mackey remained active members of the sorority until they passed away in June of 2000. Psi Chapter has continued the vision of Mrs. Parker by maturing into a chapter that stimulates, motivates and fosters growth of its membership while volunteering services throughout the metroplex. Psi Chapter is currently celebrating 73 years of sisterhood and service to the Dallas community.
To make available our time, talent and resources to provide quality programs and community services that enhance chapter visibility, increase membership and sustain a model of global leadership in the Southwestern Region.
Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. Psi Chapter seeks to (1) unite in a sisterhood qualified business and professional women; (2) promote increased interest in business education among high school and college girls; (3) encourage the development of leadership; and (4) establish and promote civic and social service activities for youth and adults.
