Sigma Delta Pi Best Practices
For the 8th consecutive year and to commemorate its 100th anniversary, Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, hosts student members to share their local chapters’ best practices through formal presentations. This session was originally accepted and scheduled for presentation at the AATSP’s 102nd Annual Conference in Puerto Rico in July 2020. Because of the conference’s postponement due to COVID-19, in June 2020 participants recorded their planned presentations as provided below.
