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.
Who Should Attend?
Since the focus of this conference is on emerging leaders, collegiate chapters should send first time officers, or members who have not held officer positions. Freshman and sophomore members of the chapter are the intended audience. There will be no training or education related to officer roles at this conference. The ELC weekend will focus on the topics listed in the overview, with an emphasis on relating it to one’s overall personal leadership journey.
