Have you planned a September/October initiation of new members?:
This past spring, many chapters delayed inducting new members. Help us recognize those qualifying students who are still waiting to become members by planning an initiation, even virtual, of ALL qualifying individuals this month (September) or next (October). This will refortify your chapter membership base and sustain the vitality of both your chapter and our national organization.
Have you considered multiple initiation ceremonies, one this fall term and one in spring 2021, to provide ample opportunities for all your qualifying students?:
Holding two ceremonies (fall and spring) will help rebuild your chapter and provide more students with Sigma Delta Pi’s exclusive membership opportunities such as graduate research grants, study abroad awards, chapter grants, and various national recognitions.
What guidance is there for planning virtual chapter activities, to include remote initiations?

Yes! Please share and bookmark our regularly updated, Sigma Delta Pi Calendar for 2020-21: https://sigmadeltapi.org/sigma-delta-pi-calendar/
