Program Design & Purpose

The National Conclave is designed as a concentrated leadership development session for collegiate and alumnae leaders. Chapter delegates will network with other sisters, national leadership team members and sorority staff to:

  • Identify sorority priorities
  • Develop policies
  • Impact programs within the national organization

Delegates examine current policies and procedures, discuss through focused discussion on issues, programs/situations affecting both collegiate and alumnae members, elect new national leaders and direct the priorities of the national organization. Recommendations are then presented to the national leadership team for action and implementation.

Who Can Attend?

Attendance at the Sigma Alpha National Conclave is limited to one Voting Delegate (required for collegiate chapters) and one Alternate Delegate (optional) per collegiate and alumnae chapter. Chapters must be in good standing with the National Sorority to be eligible to vote during the National Congress. Chapter advisors are also encouraged to attend.

Cost to Attend

Registration

  • $135/person (on or before 6/15/18)
  • $185/person (after 6/15/18)

Hotel

Guest rooms are $140/night inclusive of taxes for up to 4 people in the room.  Actual costs for the chapter will be determined by the chapter’s housing selection, i.e., delegates having own room vs. delegates sharing with another chapter. Hotel accommodations are requested and paid for on the registration form. If the chapter’s delegate(s) would like to share a room with another chapter, this should be requested at the time of registration.

Scholarship Opportunity

The Sigma Alpha Sorority Educational Foundation, in conjunction with Monsanto, is offering scholarships intended to facilitate 100% collegiate chapter attendance at Conclave. As such, each chapter (collegiate and alumnae) is eligible to receive one Delegate Registration Scholarship in the amount of $200 to offset the cost of voting delegate attendance at Conclave.

How Do Chapters Select Their Delegates?

Chapters should select a delegate according to the process outlined in its chapter bylaws. In addition to being a sister who is interested in further investing in herself, her chapter and her sorority, the ideal delegate should:

  • Be active within chapter activities.
  • Currently hold (or hold in the coming year) a leadership position.
  • Remain in the chapter for at least two semesters or three quarters post-Conclave (collegiate delegates only).

The sister or sisters selected to represent your chapter should be willing to partake in the decision-making process within the national sorority, to represent the best interest of her chapter and to share with her chapter what she learned.
