What we’re looking forward to in 2016
We are just going to put it out there. We cannot wait for 2016!
There is so much to look forward to in 2016 that we just have to share with you. Take for instance…
Establishing a new colony in Texas!
This spring semester, Alpha Sigma Alpha is establishing a colony at Texas A&M University – Texarkana. This will be the seventh active collegiate chapter in Texas.

So that’s exciting. With our colonies at Suffolk University, MA, and University of New Haven, CT, which will both install spring 2016 as well, Alpha Sigma Alpha will install three chapters during this academic year.
What is also exciting is that each of our newly installed chapters will be presented their charters at the 2016 National Convention & Leadership Conference in Orlando…ANOTHER event we are looking forward to in 2016!
July 6-9, 2016, hundreds of Alpha Sigma Alphas from across the country will come together for the 2016 National Convention & Leadership Conference.
Registration opens February 2016; so check out the event page for details including costs and deadlines. Some of the highlights from the event are what we are also really looking forward to in 2016. Such as…
Glennon Doyle Melton, author of the New York Times Best Selling book “Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life” and founder of Momastery.com will join us in Orlando on Wednesday evening to share her inspiring life model to live and work with more courage, boldness and purpose.

This unique, personalized, pre-conference workshop will introduce Gallup’s strengths-based approach and will help you learn how to use your unique blend of talents to enhance your performance, productivity and well-being.
Because there is limited seating available, register for #Imagine2016 as soon as it opens and mark “alumnae pre-conference!”
Okay then AFTER the alumnae pre-conference and AFTER Glennon shares her inspiring story and message, on Thursday at #Imagine2016 will be the acclaimed leadership conference. Workshops for the leadership conference will be developed and presented by YOU! Or, someone you know who would be great at that.
Alpha Sigma Alpha is looking for stimulating workshop topics and dynamic presenters for the 2016 National Convention & Leadership Conference in Orlando, FL.
And we need your help. Alpha Sigma Alpha is seeking recommendations and/or submissions for workshop ideas for the leadership conference, workshop proposals for the leadership conference and Alpha Talk topics.
