2014 Officers & Advisors Meeting

National Officers to Meet Saturday, November 8, 2014 at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC

Each year the National Officers and some chapter advisors within driving distance of the meeting get together to accomplish work that is difficult to manage in the limited meeting time at the National Convention.  One major item is to make decisions on the Student Research Award applications in this, our fourth year of making these awards.

2014 Fall Update

September 16, 2014Sigma Zeta Key

Dear Sigma Zetans,

With the beginning of the new academic year, the Sigma Zeta National Office is once again open for business, and we look forward to working with you.  Hopefully your chapters are beginning to meet and make plans for a productive year.  All the national officers want to thank the chapter advisors, student officers and members for the hard work you put into making Sigma Zeta a meaningful and successful organization. Our strength is in what happens at the local level within each chapter, and it’s important that we share our local successes through chapter reports, postings to our webpage, Sigma Zeta’s Facebook page, our email list or in person at the national convention.
