Regional Leadership Conference

Sigma Kappa has been able to provide leadership and personal development for over 7,000 collegiate members and chapter advisors since the Regional Leadership Conferences (RLCs) began in 2013. In 2019, the program will continue to provide this education through thirteen focused track experiences that include key elements of job-specific training. General sessions will contain relevant skill building opportunities focused on overarching leadership development topics, providing attendees the chance to build relationships and identify shared goals for their term as officers.

The 2019 RLCs will be held on two separate weekends in January. We will again have six region based RLCs and are excited to announce the regions and dates!

Week of Giving

Sigma Kappa's nationwide Week of Giving occurs each year during the week of November 9, our Founders' Day. It is a time to celebrate our history of sisterhood and service to others. As alumnae members of Sigma Kappa we have the opportunity to do great things. Sometimes great things come in small ways and random acts of kindness. The Week of Giving gives us an opportunity to celebrate our history of sisterhood and service to others by showing our compassion and understanding of one another. Below are a few suggestions that you can do by yourself, with your family, or as a group or chapter.

 

Join us as we show each other and the community
around us how we live with heart.

Expectations for collegiate chapters have not changed with regard to Week of Giving. Click here for more information (page 16). Sigma Kappa is providing an opportunity for alumnae to also engage in living with heart in their communities. This is also a great chance for collegiate chapters to pair with their alumnae chapter!
