2014 Sigma Nu Institutes
POSTED: 2014-01-13 :: LAST UPDATED: 2014-01-13, 17:10 ET
Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc. is proud to announce its plans for the 2014 regional Sigma Nu Institutes. As we close the books on the fall semester and 2013, Sigma Nu is excited to welcome a new class of young men into its leadership ranks. The General Fraternity will be hosting a series of regional training institutes for new and current officers in January, February, and March of 2014 to assist with the transition process and learning curve that accompanies taking on new positions of chapter leadership.
Many of our chapter officers have indicated that much of the difficulty in managing their respective position(s) arises from a lack of skill or knowledge regarding policy, organizational structure, management of specific programs (e.g. Pursuit of Excellence, LEAD and VBR), goal setting/strategic planning, accountability and leadership. The purpose of the Sigma Nu Institutes is to properly train specific chapter officers to be effective and successful in their own chapters in these areas. This series of regional Sigma Nu Institutes will be directed at training:
Each chapter/colony should send representatives (Lt. Commander, Treasurer, Marshal, Recruitment Chairman & 1-2 committee members, and LEAD Chairman & 1-2 committee members) to an institute of their choosing. Alumni specific programming will also be offered at each location.
Appropriate chapter members should register soon. All locations will include general and specific curriculum for each of the officers listed above as well as an opportunity for alumni participants to discuss best practices and support services.
There are no registration costs to attend the Sigma Nu Institutes.
To reserve a spot at an institute, each officer who plans to attend must complete an online registration form. Once registered, additional information will be emailed for the specific session they will be attending. We ask that all registrations be submitted at least one week prior to the institute date to allow for accurate materials counts.
