National Council Update – April 2017

March 17-18, 2017

The National Council and guests had the opportunity to visit the San Antonio affiliate of Dress for Success to learn about and participate in their inspiring work in the community. Joined by area alumnae and collegians from both the Epsilon Eta and Beta Theta chapters, the National Council and the Sorority’s Standing Committee Chairs engaged in efforts to help the affiliate prepare for several upcoming events they have planned.

Following the service event at Dress for Success San Antonio, the Council and guests met up with more alumnae and collegians from Epsilon Eta and Beta Theta to host an area reception on the famous San Antonio Riverwalk.

Over the course of their two-day in-person meeting, the National Council rolled out Standing Committee Chair Training and Standing Committee Member Training modules.

The National Council completed its annual evaluation and the evaluation of the Executive Director.

The National Council and meeting guests also participated in leadership development activities, facilitated by Karyn Nishimura Sneath, CEO of NPower. Karyn facilitated the DiSC Profile, a leadership assessment. Collegians attending Officer Academy and Recruitment Boot Camp this summer will also get to experience the DiSC Profile assessment as part of their programming.

The NPC Delegation and Foundation President provided high-level overviews of their respective work in Alpha Sigma Tau to the Standing Committee Chairs.

Dedicated time was spent with each Standing Committee Chair, her National Council ex-officio or liaison, the National President, and Executive Director, to ensure resources are available for the Chair’s success in her role.
