Seven Ways to Get the Most out of Sigma
New Year’s is right around the corner! If upon reflection of this year, you found yourself wanting to get more out of our amazing sorority, I’ve made a list of seven easy steps to start you off.
Whether it’s an event hosted by an undergraduate chapter, a graduate chapter, the state, and beyond, attend as many events as possible! Sorority events are a great way to meet Sorors, new and seasoned. If you are unaware of sorority events in your area, be sure to reach out to nearby chapters.
Our sorority has by far the most inspirational members I have ever met, but you would never know that if you do not reach out to your Sorors. Active or inactive, we are still your Sorors. Lunch invitations, inquiries about future events, or just sisterly conversations can go very far.
Support your Sisters
If you know one of your sisters is an athlete, has a talent, or is a business owner, support her whenever possible! Whether it be physical, mental, emotional, financial, or spiritual, support your sisters. Our sisterhood is truly unique, and one of the ways we are able to continue to excel in sisterhood is by supporting each other.
A wise person once told me, “If you’re not networking, you’re not working.” NETWORK! We have Sorors that are very influential in their professions and/or knows someone influential in another profession. So many of our Sorors would love to help connect you to your dream career, but that opportunity cannot happen if you have not networked, followed up, and shown your best qualities.
Take on Leadership Opportunities
If a leadership opportunity arises in your locally, regionally, or for nationally, definitely jump on it. Leadership opportunities help stimulate inner growth and can re-spark a passion. If you find yourself feeling like you are not getting the most out of our sorority, definitely seek out a leadership position.
Every once in a while, emails are sent out in a search for volunteers. If you are able, volunteer! This is an opportunity to not only build your resume, but to serve your sorority and meet new Sorors.
Never Stop Learning
International Headquarters send emails often about webinars and training sessions. If you are available, I highly encourage you to take advantage of them. We have a history book and our Sigma Bible. If you haven’t read them yet, I highly encourage you to read them. Never stop learning!
These steps are just a start, but a surefire way to help rekindle or spark involvement in our sorority. I hope everything works out for the best and don’t forget to reach out if you need any help!
