Volunteering at a local or national level is a great way to give back to Sigma Kappa!

Once you have updated your Volunteer Interest Form, you will receive a confirmation email within one to three days from Daina Knoblock, alumnae engagement manager. The confirmation email will include a pre-screen form. The pre-screen form is where you will indicate your specific interest for roles, share more about yourself and why you’re interested, and identify your preferences for scheduling interviews. The information will be shared with members of the personnel committee and interview team. For more information on how to get started click here!

Currently lives in Arnold, MO. Over the last 23 years I have fulfilled many roles within HR from recruiting to compensation to benefits to organizational strategy (and the list goes on!).  While the organization focuses on the customer experience, it is my goal to focus on the employee experience to ensure each employee is bring their best self each day.  HR transformations are very similar to the transformation Sigma Kappa is undergoing.  I am excited to share my experience with our committees and task forces. When I saw the need for HR professionals, I immediately knew this was a position that I could fulfill and bring my best self.  I am excited about the changes we are making as an organization and want to play my part as we continue to move forward.

Currently lives in Pullman, Washington. I have worked at the Washington State University Alumni Association on their Membership and Marketing team since I graduated college in 2019. Within my position at the WSUAA, I have worked to hire interns and other staff members within our team over the past 3 years. As a collegiate member of the Alpha Gamma chapter, I served as the VP of Communications, VP of Finance, and President. I have been eager to get involved as an alumna and look forward to potentially holding additional volunteer positions in the future. Sigma Kappa is in a transitional time right now and being a part of that new foundation was very appealing to me. I have wanted to get involved with Sigma Kappa again since graduating college and thought this position would be a great starting point to help me learn about what kinds of strengths and values each position needs in order to function as a successful team.

Currently lives in Chicago, IL. I have about 6.5 years working in campus recruiting for a large accounting firm and recently switched to a more internal HR role at the same accounting firm. I am an alumni volunteer for a non-profit that empowers collegians to put on a summer camp for kids whose parents have/had cancer. In my prior recruiting role, I developed and managed a team of 12 recruiting coordinators which gives me strong insight on developing and building a team. Served as an ABS to Kappa Nu (Marquette University) in the past. Volunteers are the heart and soul of Sigma Kappa and make our organization strong. I wanted to help provide a different perspective on the volunteer roles of Sigma Kappa. Although I have served as a local advisor, I have always wanted more transparency in how the national volunteer roles have been selected. The driving purpose behind the committee interested me and I wanted to help drive this change for the sorority.

FAQS

1. Do I need any particular experience to serve?

  • For volunteer roles such as advisory boards, chapter corporation boards, and various committees, no particular Sigma Kappa experience is required. We are looking for women with time, energy, and a passion for Sigma Kappa! We provide training throughout the volunteer experience to make sure you feel comfortable and successful in your role.

2. What are the specific requirements to become a national officer?

  • While not required, it is encouraged that national officers have two years of organizational experience. This provides the organizational knowledge and context needed for various roles. 

3. How much time is required as a volunteer?

  • Sigma Kappa respects our members and the busy lives they lead. The time commitment depends on the role, the scope of work and what a volunteer's individual schedule will allow. Communication is key to managing time and work effectively. 

4. How will I be supported as a volunteer?

  • Every Sigma Kappa role is supported by fellow sisters volunteering their time as well. Aside from having a support network through your volunteer team, we share important information through The SKoop, our monthly newsletter for collegiate and national officers; provide training through the Learning Center, our online training platform; and host virtual and in-person training throughout the year and biennially at convention. 

5. What kind of travel commitment is expected?

  • Many local volunteers live near the chapter they serve, but some volunteers serve remotely as well. Travel depends on the role you hold and what's needed for that position.

6. What kind of remote opportunities are available?

  • More and more volunteer roles have a remote/virtual opportunity. In fact, many can be conducted 100 percent virtually. 

7. What's micro-volunteering?

  • Micro-volunteering describes a volunteer, or team of volunteers, completing small tasks that make up a larger project. 

8. What if I have more questions?
