Chapters are required* to have representation at the House of Delegates sessions on 14-15 November. A virtual option is available for delegates who cannot attend in person. Convention delegates make organizational decisions on behalf of their chapter, so it’s important to review materials requiring action and make decisions as a group prior to the House of Delegates.
Chapters should identify Convention Delegates in the Chapter Management System (CMS) Officer and Committee Chair Report by 1 June 2023. Chapters are bestowed two votes and may appoint two delegates; however, if only one delegate can attend, they may cast both chapter votes. Delegates can be changed up to the point of convention; however, specific information is continually communicated to those listed as delegates. If there is a change in delegates, it’s important to share all communication that has come from headquarters with whoever will be serving in this role.
Delegates must be registered convention attendees to participate. The standard registration deadline is 11 October.
Visit SigmaNursing.org/Delegates for more information.
Limited seating will be available for non-delegates. For virtual attendees, there will also be the option to view the sessions. More information will be shared as we get closer to convention.
*Chapters that do not participate in all House of Delegates sessions will be bylaws incompliant, are assessed a non-attendance fee, and are ineligible for the 2023-2025 Chapter Key Award.
