Convention Volunteers 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.
