Sigma Alpha Epsilon announces new biennium goals

From July 15-17, 2021, Brothers from across the Realm gathered in Des Moines, Iowa for the 165th Anniversary Convention of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Billed as “the largest chapter meeting,” Convention business included the election of the Supreme Council, proposals to amend the Fraternity Laws, committee meetings, and awards. In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the Fraternity, the Supreme Council and Fraternity Service Center staff set goals for the upcoming biennium and beyond.

Supreme Council Statements

  1. Expansion. We remain committed to an expedited expansion policy, with an emphasis on re-establishing Phoenix colonies wherever sustainable. We commit to providing updates on our expansion efforts.
  2. Recruitment Training. Across SAE, we must recruit more members who firmly embrace SAE’s mission, vision, and values. We will allocate resources to train our members to be successful in this manner.
  3. Educational Programs. We will routinely refine our educational programs to best support our members. Thoughtful improvements will allow us to better differentiate ourselves from our peers and, as a result, improve expansion and recruitment efforts.
  4. Communications. We will communicate more frequently and substantively with the entire Realm regarding the Fraternity’s challenges, opportunities, and successes.
  5. Alumni Engagement. We will improve our organizational structure to grow alumni programs at the regional level, better track participation across the Realm, and, ultimately, convert our loyal brothers into new and meaningful volunteers and donors.
  6. Board Relations. We best support our members when we strengthen the shared objectives of the Fraternity, Foundation, and F&H. We will work with our peers on these boards to achieve measurable results in a collaborative environment.
  7. Staffing. We are committed to growing our staff to better support our undergraduate chapters and volunteers. Our undergraduate members must be able to sustain SAE’s mission, and we will be flexible on how staffing can best align to meet this objective.
