Elevate 2019 Welcome

We are so excited to invite you to Elevate 2019, SDT’s premier training and development program!

This invitation-only leadership experience equips attendees with transferable skills that go beyond the sorority experience and position you for success in your career and future pursuits. Chapter officers and regional volunteers will increase their leadership abilities through interactive sessions, peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing.

  • Chapter Executive Board members for 2019 are expected to attend the entire Saturday session (9 am – 5 pm) only.
  • Regional Chapter Support Volunteers (Chapter Advisors, Chapter Services Coordinators, and Recruitment Coordinators) are expected to attend the entire Saturday and Sunday sessions.
  • Other volunteers who live near any of these cities are invited to join Elevate on Saturday evening for dinner and volunteer focused programming.

For chapter officers and Regional Chapter Support Volunteers, The National Organization will pay the majority of your expenses (including travel and lodging if necessary, and some meals). Please reference these important travel guidelines prior to registration.

The cost for collegiate attendees is $20 per person and will be invoiced to the chapter after registration is received. Payment will be due prior to the event. In the event of a cancellation by any individual, the chapter will need to find a replacement. If that cannot be managed, the individual and/or the chapter will be responsible for any costs incurred as a result by the chapter and the national organization, including meals, travel and/or hotel charges and fees.
