As with last year's survey, the 2013 survey is multiple-choice, easy to complete, and a great source of ideas. (Outstanding Chapter Award applicants are required to submit a copy of their Chapter Annual Report as a synopsis of the previous year's activities.) Survey results will be posted on the Society's website this fall.
A separate survey was distributed to chapter officers. That survey is due on Monday, May 13, and offers two participant drawings for $25 each.
Sponsors who would like to be involved at the Society level can contribute in a variety of ways through committee work. The Society's various committees propose policy changes to the Board of Directors, judge scholarships and awards, conduct annual reviews of our website and publications, and help develop programming. We particularly invite you to serve in the areas listed below.
If you are interested in expanding your Sigma Tau Delta experience, please email Board President Sarah Dangelantonio.
