About MCR

MyChapterRoom was created by CEO, Founder and sorority woman Penny Zamkov in 2001. She developed a platform as an easy way to communicate with the chapter she advised for and her efforts did not go unnoticed. Word of mouth amongst her peers allowed her to develop MCR into what it is today. The vision Penny had in 2001 still holds true: to provide sororities with a secure platform to increase chapter efficiency and organization, while allowing focus on outreach and chapter purpose.

Currently serving more than 50,000 sorority sisters, including collegians, advisors and alumnae, MCR is the only communication platform designed by a sorority woman specifically for sororities. Who better to understand your needs than a sorority sister!
