As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority begun to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who were not eligible to be members of any Greek-letter organization.

In 1948 at the National Convention (Boule’) Zeta Amicae was established as an auxiliary of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. The name Amicae means Friends in Latin. The first charter was given in 1949 to Lambda Zeta Chapter of Houston, Texas.

Amicae are women who support the ideals of the Sorority but have not earned a bachelor’s degree. The auxiliaries are sponsored by graduate chapters in local community services areas. These auxiliaries render invaluable services to the sorority and their communities.

The State’s first Amicae Auxiliary, Zeta Amicae of Boston was founded in 1962. The second Amicae Auxiliary was chartered, Zeta Amicae of Springfield on May 14, 2021. After several years of inactivity, the Zeta Amicae of Boston was reactivated in 2022.
