"At the convention, we shared stories of home, stories of death, and stories of love, opening up to our peers and learning from each other's experiences. We made plans for local outings with regional chapters, exchanging email addresses and hugs as we promised to send out a revised version of the piece we read." Read complete story.

Chapter Sponsor Events

Thursday, February 27

New Sponsor Discussion Group 1 - 9:00 a.m.
(Savannah D-E, LL)

Are you in your first two or three years as a sponsor? Then this informal discussion time is designed for you. Led by an experienced and a new sponsor, the conversation will cover concerns of new sponsors, such as how to build a chapter's membership, how to work with officers, and how to win the support of administrators. The emphasis, though, is on being responsive to the needs of the sponsors attending the workshop. Ultimately, you'll determine the focus of the discussion.

Sponsor Workshop: Playing to Our Strengths - 10:00 a.m.
(Savannah D-E, LL)

This sponsor workshop will be of interest to all sponsors, whether you're in your first year or celebrating your 30th anniversary. Learn how to help your members write stronger scholarship and internship applications; get ideas for service projects, and learn more about opportunities for joint chapter projects with the National English Honor Society.
