Convention Update #1 – Original July. 2016

Hello fellow Gamma Sigma Sigma Members,

Have we piqued your interest about our 33rd National Convention yet? We hope so, because it’s an event you won’t want to miss! Convention is a GSS experience you will always remember. To start your Convention experience, you need to register. Follow this link to register (http://gammasigmasigma.org/ConventionRegistration2017), and you too can attend our most exciting sorority event. You will meet members from all across the country, make lots of new friends, meet our national officers, and mingle with past board members. Additionally, you get the chance to have a voice in the future of Gamma Sig through discussion and voting regarding our national bylaws and election of the National Board of Directors for the next biennium. Every chapter that is in good standing with the national organization receives up to two (2) quad registrations through the Convention travel pool program. A quad registration includes your hotel, meals, and all associated Convention related items. The only finances you would be responsible for would be your travel to Convention, and any items you would like to purchase from vendors. For chapters that have more than two (2) people interested in attending Convention this summer, you have several options to help pay for Convention registration and travel! You can petition your college to see if they provide any funding for leadership training – several colleges have programs that can help cover the cost of registration. You can hold fundraisers for your chapter to help send members to convention. You can suggest to family and friends that money for Convention costs would be a nice graduation/birthday gift. You can decorate a coffee can and start saving your spare change. Between now and July 5th you could save quite a bit to help offset the costs! You can also contact your chapter alumni and see if any of them are able to help with a donation. If you would like more information about Convention and its importance please contact anyone on the Convention Committee or the National Board of Directors. We’ve all attended Conventions before and would be happy to share our experiences with you. The purpose of Convention is to conduct the business of our sorority, and the power to make changes lies with YOU, our members. Without your participation we cannot know what our members want as we chart the future of Gamma Sigma Sigma. For specific registration questions email convention@gammasigmasigma.org or any of the National Board of Directors. We’re here for you!! We hope to see your registration soon!
