Session Moderators Needed
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, national, and international levels. Six Student Representatives and six Associate Student Representatives are elected during Regional caucuses; one Alumni Representative and one Associate Alumni Representative are chosen during the Alumni caucus. These are excellent opportunities to serve, to polish leadership skills, and to work on the "inside" of our large, international Society. These are one-year positions.
On the Board of Directors as actual voting members, are two Student Advisors, appointed by the Board. These students 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.
