Sigma Phi Epsilon Attended the 58th Grand Chapter Conclave

This summer, four undergraduate brothers of the University of Georgia’s Delta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon attended the 58th Grand Chapter Conclave in San Antonio, TX. Georgia Delta’s executive board went to the River Walk eager to meet members from other chapters and learn how to better their programming. Eric Saul, the current president of Georgia Delta, served as the delegate for the trip. He partook in legislation and learned a lot about altering/adding certain bylaws to the national chapter.

“Our experience at Conclave was awesome. Not only was it a bonding trip for our executive board, it was valuable to see how involved members of Sig Ep are in legislation. Sig Ep is truly a student-run organization,” said Eric.

At the conclave, new legislation was also passed regarding revised rituals. “One thing I am super excited for is the proposed, and now passed ritual changes,” said Eric. “In summary, the changes combine the Sigma and Epsilon Rituals in order to minimize tiered membership. Our chapter’s culture is strong, and this does not affect GA Delta specifically, but it gives new chapters a better platform to do things the right way!”

The other members of the GA Delta Executive board attended programing, met brothers from other chapters, and explored San Antonio. Olen Anderson, the chapter’s alternate, said, “I am very thankful for my conclave experience as a first timer. The opportunity to connect with brothers from across the country and see our fraternity operate at a national level is something I will truly never forget. I can’t wait to attend Conclave for years to come!”

The Conclave concluded with the chapter winning the Buchanan Cup, an award that highlights top chapters across the country. The chapter had worked hard on the application to have the chance to win the award at this year’s Conclave. The chapter looks forward to carrying this momentum into this fall semester.
