As we approach the end of the school year, here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
Written award applications must be submitted on Kappasig.Net by Midnight EDT on April 15, 2023. This includes Officer, and Advisor Recognitions, The Stephen Alonzo Jackson Award and Undergraduate of the Year, as well as Chapter awards such as Outstanding Communications Program and Outstanding Military Heroes Event, or Community Service Event, and the Intramural Achievement Award.
F.A.C.E. and Founders Circle are not written awards and are based on points tallied on May 1.
Make sure your Chapter’s Annual Report was submitted and approved by your District Grand Master. Fines will be assessed.
Housed at our Headquarters, a Chapter Archive is retained for your Chapter. As we approach the 74th Grand Conclave in Charlottesville, this is a great time to add to your archive. Please submit Newsletters, the State of the Chapters, or any appropriate photos from the past year.
You could have submitted materials by the Annual Report, or you can email Michael Malenic at [email protected].
Twice a year, Kappa Sigma publishes the Caduceus and sends it to every Alumni member free of charge. Over the past year, we have conducted a readership survey, and the most popular section was Chapter Updates from our undergraduates. Chaptehttps://www.kappasig.net/s/award-applicationsr Updates should include your Chapter name, University, and between 100 – 250 words about your Chapter operations and members over the last six months. This will be published in July, so keep in mind the current semester will be concluded when these will appear to your Alumni.
To ensure your update gets published and to qualify for the F.A.C.E. points, submissions are due by May 1. Please submit them using this page on the website.
Grand Conclave Registration
Every two years, Kappa Sigma calls a Grand Conclave to conduct the business before all Chapters, including: Updating the Constitution and By-laws, electing officers, allowing undergraduates to voice their ideas to the commissions, and uniting our 290 Chapters and Colonies from across North America.
Remember to log your AGC Hours, AGC Dollars, and Military Heroes Campaign Donations before the May 1 deadline.
Ritual Proficiencies must be tested before May 1 as well to qualify for F.A.C.E. Points.
As you leave for summer, make sure your roster is updated. Ensure all initiated Brothers are moved over in KappaSig.net from Pledges, any graduating seniors are removed, and Officers are transitioned (if applicable)
Finally, remember to send initiation cards to HQ within ten days of the initiation. Initiation Certificates are not printed until the card is reviewed.
