The Iota Tau chapter is nearing the end of it’s spring recruitment period, and we would like to thank all of the men who have taken the time to come out to our events, meet the brothers, and learn more about Sigma Chi so far.
Our final event is tomorrow evening (Thursday, Feb. 20), and we look forward to seeing those of who feel that Sigma Chi would be the right place for you, as well as those of who still may be on the fence. If you have any questions, concerns, or need any details regarding the event tomorrow, do not hesitate to contact our Recruitment Chair, David Kalish, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you missed our recruitment events this semester, but are still interested in Sigma Chi, we still encourage you to reach out to Brother Kalish; it is never too late or too early to express interest.
As your college years become more and more distant, it often becomes increasingly difficult to remain in touch with the active chapter, your fellow alumni, and Sigma Chi in general. Most of the active chapter would tell you that Sigma Chi has been one of the most influential experiences of their entire lives, and that they couldn’t imagine that experience not continuing on after graduation. For this reason, we would like to make an effort to reconnect with each and every Iota Tau alumnus who was once in our shoes at some point over the last 24 years, and do whatever we can to make it easier for you to remain in contact with each other.
Our first action to kick off this initiative will be a shift in the content provided in our monthly newsletter. We would like to provide you with more stories about your fellow alumni, but we need your help to do that. Please send your stories, photos or announcements to our Tribune, Chad Grossman, at email@example.com, so we can share them with your fellow alumni brothers. We look forward to sharing your experiences and telling your story.
This week’s featured brother is Scott Hird. Having been an active since Fall 2010, Brother Hird is currently the chapter’s most senior member. Even with coursework as a Finance major and his commitments to the St. Thomas Golf Team, Scott always makes ample time for Sigma Chi and has served multiple terms as both the chapter’s Scholarship and Brotherhood Chair. Though his time as an active is nearing it’s end, Scott’s dedication to Sigma Chi will continue to serve as an example to younger brothers long after his graduation. And while we are not be looking forward to the day that Brother Hird leaves the active chapter, we are excited to see where his Sigma Chi journey will take him going forward.

The Iota Tau Chapter was awarded their 10th Peterson Significant Chapter award at Balfour Leadership Training Workshop. The Peterson Significant Chapter Award, sponsored annually by the Sigma Chi Foundation, is the highest honor that the Fraternity bestows upon an undergraduate chapter. Award criteria are assigned on an objective scale and encompass the entire gamut of chapter activities, from financial stability and recruitment, to chapter and member reputation, to Ritual and Initiation performance. This is the third consecutive year that Iota Tau has received this award, and the forth time in the last 5 years. The Iota Tau chapter would like to thank all of the past and present active brothers for their continued effort and support in working for the betterment of the chapter, and for their lifelong dedication to the ideals of Sigma Chi.

The Balfour Leadership Training Workshop (Balfour LTW), established in 1947, is Sigma Chi’s annual summer conference at which the leadership from undergraduate chapters across North America convene to learn and practice skills that will be implemented in their home chapters during the upcoming year. This year the conference will be held at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and the Iota Tau Chapter is excited to have eight undergraduate brothers who will be in attendance: Taylor Marsh, Jack Tousignant, Ryan Sheehan, Shawn Elliott, Ryan Joynes, James Ericson, Paul Perrizo, and Tyler Trudell. Iota Tau will also have numerous alumni in attendance, including Timothy Sullivan, Benjamin Roby, Alex Pokorny, David Hackworthy, and Brian Dahl, each of whom are either volunteering their time as facilitators, providing logistical support, or participating in training sessions themselves. Iota Tau’s Chapter Advisor, Todd Larson, will also be present, facilitating the Emerging Leaders track. This is the largest number of brothers the Iota Tau chapter has ever had attend BLTW and we cannot wait to see what all the brothers will bring back to the chapter for the coming year.
