In your role as an advisor of your Sigma Alpha chapter, especially with the end of the semester approaching, potential officer transitions, and planning for the fall semester taking place soon, your contribution is critical. As an experienced professional, you are the advisor to give advice, make recommendations and maintain good communication with the chapter and National Sorority Board. It would be ideal for you to attend executive officer meetings, if possible, or at least meet with an executive officer to know how their meetings go. You should always know about and try to attend chapter meetings and activities when possible. Members appreciate your support! Inform and notify the chapter and members in an appropriate business and professional manner. Intervene in conflicts between members and/or officers when necessary. You may be called upon by the National Sorority Board to implement regulations or policies from time to time.
As the advisor, please contribute to helping each member uphold the scholastic, leadership, fellowship and service principles of the sorority, as well as the National Bylaws and Policies. Furthermore, assist your chapter in setting realistic goals and objectives each academic year.
The National Sorority appreciates your time, talents and support to the Sigma Alpha Sorority at your university, in your region and the nation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Chapter Consultant (CC) or Taylor Bryant (firstname.lastname@example.org).
