Each biennium, Sigma installs a new president at the international level. At the 44th Biennial Convention, we proudly installed Beth Tigges, PhD, RN, PNP, BC, and introduced her as the 32nd president of Sigma. Each president presents a call to action to help guide members and chapters as we strive to fulfill our mission. President Tigges call asks us to “connect, collaborate, and catalyze” to advance world health.
In the past 10 years, Sigma has grown to over 500 chapters worldwide; developed new models for chapter development, including partnerships with clinical organizations; formed new global regions; gained Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) status with the United Nations (UN); and convened the Global Advisory Panel on the Future of Nursing & Midwifery (GAPFON®). Now is the time to build on that extraordinary success and our rich heritage by developing new ways to connect with our members and other nurses worldwide, and collaborate with diverse partners to catalyze change for advancing world health and global nursing excellence.
