SPECIAL PLENARY RESOURCES


If you’re a designated delegate to this year’s Convention, you’ll be participating in Phi Sigma Sigma’s official business meeting, called Plenary, and electing a NEW SUPREME COUNCIL. You’re strongly encouraged to review the following materials before arrival. (Reminder: Chapter leaders will want to consult with their members in advance to ensure their individual votes reflect the will of those they represent.)


Delegates will also be voting on PROPOSED AMENDMENTS to the international constitution and bylaws. Again, it’s a good idea to review them in advance – and chapter leaders will want to get feedback from their members before voting.


GENERAL RESOURCES

NOTE: Contact Foundation ASAP if you're interested in donating a tax-deductible gift or service for Friday night's auction and raffle (benefiting many great causes Phi Sigs care most about), or if you'd like to participate in our special service projects! See the appeal letter above for details.
