Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated logistical and economic challenges, Sigma Kappa's national council has announced the cancellation of the 89th national convention onsite experience scheduled for June in Tucson. Because of the unpredictability of the pandemic and its impact, the safety of our members, volunteers, delegates, staff and guests must remain our number one priority.

Convention Cancellation FAQs

Why was the 2020 in-person convention experience cancelled and the business meeting moved to an online format?

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, national council voted to keep the health and safety of our attendees, staff and guests as the top priority. Transitioning the business meeting to a virtual format now allows us to focus on the immediate needs of our sisters, chapters and the Sorority as we navigate the pandemic and its associated economic impact. There are many unknown factors related to travel, social distancing and local and state restrictions that would have affected convention. National council, with support from the leadership of the Foundation and NHC, believes this is the best decision given the current situation.

How will the business meeting be conducted?

Sigma Kappa’s Bylaws and the Maine Non-Profit Corporation statutes permit electronic meeting and voting. Members who are eligible to serve as delegates under Bylaw VIII.7.a will be sent information to register (at no cost) and then be provided additional information. The business meeting will be held on Saturday, June 20, time TBD.
