After a yearlong hiatus from in-person events, Sigma Kappa is shifting our regional conference model from officer education to focus solely on emerging leader education. These updated conferences will be called our Emerging Leaders Conferences (ELCs). The ELC experience will focus on leadership and personal skill development in an institute model meant exclusively for collegiate members who have never held a leadership position before, or who are in their first elected position within the chapter. Through a mix of general sessions and small cohort groups led by trained facilitators, attendees will learn more about leadership skills and how they can be used, both in their chapters and in everyday situations.
Chapters may elect or select four to six attendees to attend the ELCs in 2022, with registration beginning in November 2021. Advisory board supervisors and other chapter volunteers will not attend the ELCs. Chapters will be responsible for a per person registration fee, and all travel to and from the conference location.
Information on which location chapters will attend will be shared later this summer. For questions about the content or schedule of the ELCs, please contact Mary Phillips Carlson, director of educational programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on travel or registration, please contact Gina Farrar, meeting and events specialist, at email@example.com
