(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.)— The Kappa Sigma Fraternity has surpassed its biennium goal of having the fraternal world’s largest, best-trained volunteer corps of more than 1,500 volunteers. The Fraternity’s board of directors approved appointments today that allowed the Fraternity to surpass the 1,500 volunteer goal.
“Kappa Sigma is an alumni-driven organization, and volunteer alumni are directly involved in coaching and mentoring our undergraduates at the local level like never before. The support provided to our undergraduate members through our volunteers is immeasurable,” said Worthy Grand Master Justin A. Hansen, president of Kappa Sigma’s international board of directors.
Kappa Sigma’s volunteer structure starts with our Supreme Executive Committee (SEC), our international board of directors. The SEC are all volunteers themselves, providing fraternity leadership in addition to their professional careers. The SEC appoints volunteer officers to directly help and mentor each undergraduate chapter and colony. Kappa Sigma appoints Alumnus Advisors (AAs) and Assistant Alumnus Advisors (AAAs) to advise our chapters on day-to-day operations. The fraternity also appoints District Grand Masters (DGMs) and Assistant District Grand Masters (ADGMs) to locally promote Kappa Sigma’s national programs. Many local volunteers also serve on volunteer Commissions, which help run operational areas of the fraternity with the assistance of Headquarters Staff.
The volunteer goal was one of three main goals Kappa Sigma set to achieve at its 72nd Biennial Grand Conclave, held in Charlottesville, Va. The Fraternity set a goal of raising more than $1 million over the 2019-2021 biennium during its Stephen Alonzo Jackson’s Weekends of Giving, raising more than $540,000 in 2020 with the 2021 edition yet to come. The Fraternity also set a historic expansion goal of establishing 40 new colonies and is having successful progress toward that goal.
“Great organizations thrive during times of adversity. The fact that Kappa Sigma continues to break records, such as having the largest and best-trained team of volunteers and mentors, shows that Kappa Sigma truly is a brotherhood like no other,” said Hansen.
