Join our Board of Directors

Open to all Sigma Alpha Omega® Alumnae in good standing! The Sigma Alpha Omega® Foundation is opening its application pool to welcome new Directors.

Directors are required to attend a monthly teleconference and additional “emergency” teleconference meetings, as needed, as well as attend all annual meetings during their entire term. There is also an expectation to proactively be available via GroupMe. This volunteer position is as challenging as it is rewarding, and can require 5-15 hours of work a week. The time commitment varies from each position but should not be underestimated.

The positions available are for two-year terms beginning July 2024 and ending June 2026.  The positions will be filled based on a vote from the current Sigma Alpha Omega® Foundation Board of Directors. Roles being recruited are President, Vice President & Secretary/Director of PR.
