Springtime in 2012

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #0099FF;”]H[/dropcap]appy Spring! First off, let me remind everyone that the NEW deadline for Tau Beta Sigma scholarships and awards is just around the corner – March 1!
Now would be a great time to think about some of the many accomplishments that sisters in your chapter, whether they be graduating this semester or not, and consider recognizing them for their service. Of course, for a full description of the awards and their nomination requirements, you can point your browser to http://www.tbsigma.org.
While I’m on the subject, a reminder of the plethora of online resources available to you. Of course www.tbsigma.org contains links to just about everything you might need, be it Chapter Operations Handbook, National Constitution, or contact information for your National Officers! In addition, you can follow @taubetasigma on Twitter®, “Like” us on Facebook®, and Check out the Council Connection in blog format at http://tbsnvpcr.blogspot.com. This latest addition to our on-line resources features updates from your National Council so you always know where we are and what we’re up to!
Also, a reminder that TBΣ Student Chats are once monthly on-line, and a great opportunity to meet Sisters from all over the country, chat with (at least one) National Officer, and stay connected. Of course, there is a monthly theme, and always a question and answer session. You may also encourage membership candidates to take advantage of the opportunity to get an idea about the Sorority from Sisters outside your Chapter.
Of course, let’s not forget that Spring is Convention Season. So, in addition to spending all of this quality time together online, consider attending your District Convention. And if you do make it, be sure to expand your comfort zone and get to know people from other Chapters. The connections (and Facebook® friends) you take home with you are well worth it!
