Chapter Sponsor Events
Thursday, March 19
New Sponsor Discussion Group - 9:00 a.m.
Are you in your first two or three years as a Sponsor? Then this informal discussion time is designed for you. Led by an experienced and a new Sponsor, the conversation will cover concerns of new Sponsors, such as how to build a chapter's membership, how to work with officers, and how to win the support of administrators. The emphasis, though, is on being responsive to the needs of the Sponsors attending the workshop. Ultimately, you'll determine the focus of the discussion.
Sponsor Workshop: Playing to Our Strengths - 10:00 a.m.
This Sponsor workshop will be of interest to all Sponsors, whether you're in your first year or celebrating your 30th anniversary. Learn how to help your members write stronger scholarship and internship applications; get ideas for service projects, and learn more about opportunities for joint chapter projects with the National English Honor Society.
Former Sigma Tau Delta Sponsors, Board members, and committee chairs represent a repository of experience and investment in Sigma Tau Delta. We will discuss ways in which the Society can tap that resource as well as ways in which retired faculty can stay connected to Sigma Tau Delta. In addition to sharing concerns and questions and ideas for continuing meaningful involvement with Sigma Tau Delta, we will discuss questions and comments about the role retired faculty might have with their local chapters.
Friday, March 20
Regents and Sponsors Luncheon - 12:30 p.m.
Sponsors attending the convention are invited to attend the Regents and Sponsors Luncheon, hosted by the Regents of Sigma Tau Delta. This is an opportunity to meet the Regents, meet other Sponsors, share ideas, and learn about opportunities offered to Sponsors and students. Pre-register for the luncheon when you register.
President's Reception for Faculty and Alumni - 6:30 p.m.
In your registration materials, faculty and alumni will find a ticket to President Gloria Hochstein's reception. This event is purely for social exchange, so be sure to attend, mingle with other faculty and alumni.
