January – February
Held in 6 locations each year:
Chapter Leaders Day (CLD) is a one-day regional conference designed to provide officer training, opportunities to network and build relationships, and a space to have in-depth conversations about ethical leadership, student safety and success, and current trends within fraternity and sorority communities. Attendance for CLD includes chapter Priors, Vice Priors, Exchequers, Recorders, Candidate Educators, one additional chairman of the chapter’s choice, and up to two emerging leaders. Chapter Advisors are invited to attend as well. Chapter Leaders Day is facilitated by Sigma Alpha Mu alumni, friends of Sigma Alpha Mu and campus-based partners. This program is supported by a grant from the Sigma Alpha Mu Foundation.
80% of chapter leaders that attended a 2020 Chapter Leaders Day felt more prepared for their leadership role after attending the conference.
Chapter leaders shared skills that were gained or enhanced at Chapter Leaders Day:
“Enhanced my ability to think about ethical concerns and gained knowledge about the access I have to resources that can help when making decisions that concern my Chapter.”
“Communication and decision making skills”
“Learned more about the importance of inclusion and engagement as I prepare to be Candidate Educator”
The Octagon, Chapter Leaders Day Committee and Fraternity staff look forward to meeting you at an upcoming Chapter Leaders Day!
