National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations recruit members at various times of the year through a Membership Intake Process (MIP). NPHC chapters determine their own recruitment period which can change from year to year. Organizations conducting MIP will host informational sessions, commonly referred to as Interest Meetings or Rush events. During these formal sessions aspirants will typically learn specific information about membership requirements, chapter policies, and financial cost.

At the beginning of each semester, the Alabama NPHC hosts a general interest session, known as Convocation.  Convocation allows interested students to learn about the history of the organizations within the council and interact with current members.
