Fraternity In Need Of Grand Chapter Delegates

Undergraduate and alumni totals are extremely low
May 6, 2013

Sigma Chi needs quorum for 79th Grand Chapter, and to achieve it, it needs undergraduate and alumni delegates to sign up as soon as possible. Completed delegate forms were due to the Fraternity on May 1.

Undergraduate delegate totals are extremely low with only 80 being submitted thus far. For quorum, the Fraternity needs 120 more undergraduate delegates to register.

In order to become a delegate, interested brothers must first register for Grand Chapter at grandchapter.sigmachi.org/register. They then must fill out a delegate form, which can be accessed here.

There is to be only one delegate per chapter. Chapters can register an alternate delegate, but only one delegate can represent a chapter. The delegate must also complete the certified delegate form and return it to Reece Schenkenfelder, WESTERN KENTUCKY 2010, alumni and volunteer services coordinator. Mailed delegate forms are preferred. Here’s where to send them:

By mail: 1714 Hinman Ave., Evanston, IL 60201;
By email: reece.schenkenfelder@sigmachi.org;
By fax: (847) 869-4906.

Also remember: All alumni chapter/association delegates must complete their delegate forms and have them signed by the alumni chapter/association president and secretary, while undergraduate delegates must have their forms completed and signed by the chapter Consul and Annotator.

If delegates return the form without physical signatures, the Fraternity will need confirmation emails from the Consul and Annotator about who the delegate is. The email should read: “I, the (Consul/Annotator), am writing to confirm (Name of Delegate) as the delegate for the (Chapter Name) for Grand Chapter.” If the Consul is the delegate, then the Fraternity will only need a confirmation email from the Annotator.

Undergraduate delegates do not have to pay for the registration fee, but they will have to pay for travel and hotel accommodations. At the end of Grand Chapter, undergraduate delegates are eligible for a travel stipend of 8 cents per mile for the first 1,000 miles and 10 cents per mile thereafter.

Anyone with questions can contact Schenkenfelder at (847) 869-3655, ext. 227, or reece.schenkenfelder@sigmachi.org.
