aka Continuous Open Bidding (COB)

What is COB? 


Continuous Open Bidding (COB) is an informal recruitment process that Panhellenic sororities use to recruit new members outside of the designated Spring Formal Recruitment period. This is used to permit chapters who have available membership spots to reach total. Chapters may fall under total for a variety of reasons, including large groups of graduating seniors, members abroad for a full year, or leaves of absence.


The Continuous Open Bidding Process for Fall 2020 has concluded. COB for Spring 2021 will begin following the conclusion of Spring 2021 Formal Recruitment. More information will be made available in January 2021.
