The Noteworthy Chapter Activities Database is now live.
Taken from the Chapter Annual Report, the database contains descriptions of the most noteworthy activities various chapters engaged in over the last two years. Members can sort the list by activity type, year, and/or school in order to find out what other chapters are up to and to get ideas for their own chapter activities. Contact information for each chapter is included so that chapters can get in touch with each other to learn more about past projects, team up to form partnerships, or connect with chapters that have similar interests.
The database will be updated every year after the Chapter Annual Reports are filed.
January 31 is the application deadline for two paid summer internship opportunities co-sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta:
The Better World Books six-week paid summer internship is offered to members who have or will be participating in a Better World Books Campus Book Drive. Beginning in early June 2013, the recipient will work 30 hours per week, earning $10 per hour, in Alpharetta, Georgia, in the Atlanta metro area. Sigma Tau Delta will provide the recipient an additional $1,500 stipend to assist with travel and housing expenses. The recipient will be announced at the annual convention.
The Penguin Group (USA) ten-week paid summer internship is offered to current undergraduate Sigma Tau Delta members. The internship takes place in New York, NY, with exact dates to be determined by agreement between the recipient and Penguin Group (USA). The recipient will work 28 hours per week, earning $7.25 per hour. Sigma Tau Delta will provide the recipient an additional $1,500 stipend to assist with travel and housing expenses.
Sigma Tau Delta's student and alumni leaders are chosen at the international convention. These positions provide excellent opportunities for students to network, gain valuable leadership skills, and learn about how Sigma Tau Delta functions at the regional and international levels. The two Student Advisors are actually voting members of the Board of Directors, attend fall and spring Board meetings (and the convention), and work closely with all the Student Representatives and Regents. Truly committed, organized, creative, and dependable members are invited to apply, by February 15, for one of the two Student Advisor positions. Applicants must be willing to make a two-year commitment to serve, if selected.
Leadership Duties and Applications
Submissions are now open for the first ever Sigma Tau Delta meme contest. Members are invited to create image macros (memes) about Sigma Tau Delta, English, the international convention, featured speakers, the Common Reader, Portland, and related topics. Join in the fun, share your love of Sigma Tau Delta with the world, and get a chance to win a prize. Submissions are due January 28.
