ATLANTA, GEORGIA – After months of anticipation and preparation, the 2019 Endeavor Conference kicked-off in Atlanta, Georgia! Hundreds of undergraduates, alumni, and guests have gathered together for brotherhood, education, and to celebrate 99 years of Sig Tau.
In the spirit of our Principle of Citizenship, Endeavor Atlanta began with a service project in partnership with the Packaged Good, and Atlanta-based non-profit organization that provides care packages to organizations such as Mary Hall Freedom House, Ronald McDonald House, and Veteran’s Empowerment. Attendees assembled over 700 care packages.
CHAPTER RECOGNITION DINNER
This evening we were able to join together for the Chapter Recognition Dinner, sponsored by the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. Tonight’s recognition and awards are a way of recognizing the accomplishments of our chapters, but they are also a way of telling our story. Through the awards nomination and selection process, we can see where we excel, where we can improve, and what it truly means to be a chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma. Congratulations to all of the deserving chapters!
This afternoon, members met brothers from other chapters, joined their small groups, and began their educational tracks. The Endeavor Track is focusing on developing men as individuals to be noble gentlemen, regardless of the community in which they live. This Lifelong Membership track is focusing on life after graduation, holding gainful employment, life skills, and lifelong membership in Sig Tau.
The first alumni session also began today, kicking off the conference with a discussion on the Changing Face of Fraternities. This session focused on the current events and challenges plaguing the fraternity and sorority world.
FRATERNITY NETWORK RECEPTION
We closed day one with the Fraternity Network Reception. The reception was a time for members to reconnect with one another, make new connections, and exhibit the true link of brotherhood. The power of fraternity is built on relationships – it is the foundation of our brotherhood, from the first interaction to the last.
SIG TAU FOUNDATION
The Sig Tau Foundation continues the Founders Day Challenge at Endeavor with a successful day one that will make an impact for years to come.
You can still join your brothers in honoring the Fraternity, our Founders, and the Principles. Your support of the Founders Day Challenge will help usher in the next generation of principled leaders and even send more men to the next Endeavor Conference!
