Chapters are required* to have representation at the House of Delegates sessions on 9-10 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 voting options and make decisions as a group prior to the House of Delegates.
Your chapter should have Convention Delegates identified in the Chapter Management System (CMS) Officer and Committee Chair Report. Chapters are bestowed two votes and may appoint two delegates, although one delegate is sufficient and 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. Should your chapter change its delegates at any time, it’s important to share all communication that has come from headquarters with whoever will be serving in this role.
In addition to identifying delegates in the CMS, delegates also need to be registered attendees of convention in order to participate. The standard registration deadline is 6 October.
If you are serving as a chapter delegate, be sure to visit SigmaNursing.org/Delegates for more information.
If you are not serving as a delegate, you are still able to attend this event. There will be limited seating available for individuals to watch the proceedings take place. 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 2021-2023 Chapter Key Award.
