"TO INSPIRE THE PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT OF EACH SISTER"

Recurring, in-person events hosted throughout North America for a specific audience and purpose.
WWFD: WHAT WOULD FAY DO?
What Would Fay Do? is a life skills program that aims (high) to do just that. The program focuses on a different topic each month to help develop skills to live a successful life after college.
Leadership & Skill Development
In order to provide incoming sister development chairmen (SDCs) with the experience and knowledge to execute the Phi Program as intended, we believe it must first be experienced in that way. During this three-day workshop, SDCs will have the opportunity to experience the Phi Program first-hand and learn how to facilitate the program material, using motivational interviewing techniques to engage new members in a way that will spark conversation. SDCs also network with each other and work one-on-one with a new member education specialist to develop their chapter’s program and timeline.
Volunteer Training & Development
The Stakeholders Summit provides an opportunity for Fraternity volunteers to receive more in-depth training related to volunteer roles and specific chapter needs. The Stakeholders Summit is a weekend dedicated to the development of chapter key advisors, committee chairman and other key volunteers.
Leadership & Skill Development
To train our membership recruitment chairs (MRCs) we have introduced the MRC Institute, a three-day intensive workshop for MRCs each summer. During this three-day workshop, MRCs have the opportunity to learn best practices, attend recruitment training, receive up-to-date resources, network with other MRCs and work one-on-one with the chapter services manager - recruitment to develop and finalize their chapter’s recruitment plan.
Delegates to the biennial Convention make up the legislative body of Phi Sigma Sigma. Convention is typically comprised of one delegate designated by Supreme Council from each collegiate chapter of the Fraternity (usually the archon), one delegate from each alumnae chapter, chapter key advisors and Fraternity committee chairmen.
DETOUR: VIRTUAL SISTERHOOD
During a period of distance, the Fraternity facilitated opportunities to connect and engage in a new and exciting ways. Observing social distancing best practices doesn't mean you have to feel alone.
The programming introduced under the Fraternity's Detour umbrella is hosted in the Detour and Next 90 Days Facebook groups and promoted on Instagram @PhiSig_Detour.
COLLEGIATE LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
Formerly Leadership Conference (LC)
Phi Sigma Sigma’s Collegiate Leadership Academy is held annually and brings together chapter leaders from across North America to learn, network and grow. Phi Sigma Sigma’s conferences are designed to bring together leaders from all chapters for specialized programming and training. Chapter executive board members attend the conference at the beginning of their term so they can jump into their positions with the necessary tools and added confidence necessary to make the transition into a leadership role within the chapter more seamless. Phi Sigma Sigma firmly believes the earlier a sister has access to leadership development programming, the more benefit she will gain and, as a result, the more effective a leader she will become.
New Member Development
The Phi Program, our new member education program, aims to connect new members to the chapter and chapter members – helping them to find the connections upon which lifelong sisterhood is built. The program was designed by Dr. Mari Ann Callais to deliver information, spark conversation, inspire reflection and facilitate friendship among the newest members of the chapter.
CHAPTER ANNUAL REPORT
In an effort to assist chapters in elevating the member experience, the Fraternity requires timely and accurate reporting. The focus of this program is to assist executive boards with identifying a specific focus for the term. This is an opportunity to dig deep and determine the root cause of the chapter’s successes or struggles. Officers select a focus area, report it to the CSM, share it with the chapter and remain focused while working toward the chapter’s goal.
How often do women’s achievements go unnoticed precisely because we’re content to be the behind-the-scenes leaders at work, in our communities and in society at large? Since 1913, Phi Sigma Sigma has celebrated the best that women can be – motivating tens of thousands of members in our 100-year history to aspire, act and achieve their own greatness and aim high. Annually, we acknowledge sisters for their remarkable work.
PHILOSOPHIES & POLICIES
Phi Sigma Sigma’s philosophies outline our stance on various pertinent topics and guide the procedures and best practices implemented by our chapters. Phi Sigma Sigma’s policies are intended to maximize the collegiate experience while minimizing risks for individual sisters, the sorority and our university partners.
