Summer Summit:
Leading Your Chapter In Unprecedented Times

July 25, 2020

Are you wondering what fraternal life will look like this fall? Worried about recruitment and member engagement? What about building brotherhood and supporting local organizations through philanthropy initiatives? We asked and you shared your concerns. Be a part of history – register for SAE’s inaugural virtual Summer Summit: Leading Your Chapter in Unprecedented Times. Connect with staff, volunteers, and each other to help prepare for the return to school – whether that be in person, virtually or a combination of both.



The SAE Summer Summit: Leading Your Chapter in Unprecedented Times is designed to help our chapters and their advisors prepare for whatever version of the fall term they are going to have. This is a five-hour event with built-in breaks and will be hosted via Zoom. Later in the evening there will be an optional Networking Session for attendees.

Breakout Topics Like a forum, facilitators will share ideas and suggestions regarding each topic, and attendees will share and discuss ideas amongst themselves.  

  • Recruiting the Best Brothers – tips, techniques, and discussion on recruiting for the fall whether your campus is in-person, virtual, or someplace in between. 
  • Engaging, Operating, and Thriving in Fall 2020  – share and discuss tips and ideas for engaging members, managing finances, and operating during a school year which will be unlike any before!

As an attendee of our program, you will be asked to agree to the following terms, which help designate us as true gentlemen and leaders: I do hereby agree to adhere to the following Code of Conduct while I am an attendee of the SAE Summer Summit. My conduct will at all times be a reflection of “The True Gentleman.” I will not violate the laws of the land, the regulations of my university/college or the Fraternity Laws and health-and-safety policies of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. If I fail in any way to follow this Code of Conduct, I fully understand that the Eminent Supreme Recorder or his designee has the right to remove me from the program immediately. I also understand that if this occurs, my membership in Sigma Alpha Epsilon may be terminated. As a gentleman, I understand that some t-shirt slogans or pictures can be vulgar or tasteless. I will refrain from wearing such a shirt while a part of the SAE Summer Summit. If I have a question as to my shirt’s acceptability, I will ask a staff or faculty member for guidance. I realize that this type of dress reflects on the image of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Likewise, I agree to use my actual first and last name when logging into Zoom for the program. I understand that using inappropriate or vulgar nicknames or slogans for my Zoom ID is unprofessional and may be offensive to other attendees, FSC Staff and Facilitators. I further agree that I shall continue to abide by the Scope of Association, which I signed upon claiming my account. I understand that my poor attendance at general sessions, seminars, or meetings or my conduct may warrant my failing the SAE Summer Summit and not being awarded a diploma. I understand and acknowledge that attendance at the entire program — from start to finish — is required for successful graduation. Departing early from the program, for any reason, may result in my failure to graduate from the program. Additionally, I understand that if my actions cause injury to someone or something, I will indemnify and hold Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Foundation harmless from any claims arising from my actions.
