PNM — Potential New Member, all women participating in recruitment.
Total — allowable chapter size, as determined by the Panhellenic Council.
Quota — the number each sorority may pledge.
COB — Continuous Open Bidding. COB is an opportunity for those chapters that do not reach Quota during recruitment to bid to Quota and/or Total.
Snap Bidding — an option available to chapters that did not fill Quota. Chapters may offer bids to PNM’s whose preferences were not matched. This process takes place before bids are distributed. Snap Bidding is not intended to fill spaces in the chapter Total and is limited to any woman who participated in formal recruitment.
