Tri Sigma is pleased to announce the launch of our newest National program, the Presidents Academy! This new program will replace the regional Officer Academies. After many phases of careful thought and conversation, the need to provide a single, consistent message through a consolidated experience prevailed. The new program will reduce logistical barriers presented by officer turnover and availability, spring recruitment conflicts, and the general over programming facing collegiate women. Focused efforts and resources, from both the National Organization and collegiate chapters, will allow for a more robust program experience and greater collaboration among peer leaders. Though this transition limits the quantity of collegiate women to engage in this specific type of leadership experience, additional opportunities abound with the Service Immersion trips, Labyrinth Leadership Experience, and programs sponsored by our partner institutions, like the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute, as well as campus and community based programs.
Collegiate Chapter Presidents will join together January 5th-8th in Dulles, VA to learn and lead using the values of Tri Sigma as their guide. Participants will have the opportunity to network with sisters from every collegiate chapter as well as leading alumnae who will coach them to success in their chapter role. Chapter Presidents will develop valuable leadership skills, learn to harness their strengths, and gain confidence to guide their chapter through change while addressing current issues relevant to collegiate women. This program will continue our long standing tradition of unifying our leaders under the mission, vision, and values of our sisterhood while providing an exceptional experience that will leave each participant, each sister, each President, empowered.
