Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated
The Groundbreaking Gamma Alpha Pi Zeta Chapter 

Inspired by our distinguished international organization, Gamma Alpha Pi Zeta was chartered on June 12, 2020 when eight enthusiastic members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated decided to organize and make an impact during the height of a global pandemic. With the support and guidance of the New Jersey State Director and Atlantic Regional Director, the charter members' efforts culminated in a momentous chartering ceremony conducted by the Centennial International President. Since then, GAPZ has continued to produce change in Bergen County, New Jersey through innovative programming and scholarships. Our chapter represents a group of diverse women who always strive for the highest level of excellence, as our founders intended.  Our members pride themselves in the ONE Zeta philosophy and "Finer Forward" mindset.
