Sigma Chi BLTW will start tomorrow July 30th and will give the leaders from undergraduate chapters a chance to participate in discussions, talks, presentations, think groups and chapter problem solving sessions. Hopefully after 4 days of these activities every undergraduate will have a plan and motivation to return home and make their chapter better.
The fraternity defines Balfour as the following:
“The Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, established in 1947, is an annual summer program designed to improve the quality of leadership in the organization. At Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, current undergraduate chapter leaders are challenged to clarify their values and the role those values play in their leadership decision-making.”
This year’s workshop will be held July 30 to Aug. 1, 2009 at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, N.C. Its theme is “By This Act of Ours.”
ShareSigmaChi will be producing a BLTW podcast once the event is over with 2 Sigs that are attending. Hopefully the podcast can give those that couldn’t attend BLTW a glimpse of what it’s like to attend. Another great way to accomplish this is to update your facebook or twitter status while you’re at Balfour. So any Sigs that read this and are attending BLTW, please update your status throughout the day so others can get a feel of what’s happening at BLTW. We will post more info about our podcast once Balfour is over.
Remember you can keep up with ShareSigmaChi on various social networks like Facebook and Twitter. You really want to keep track on Twitter during the month of August because ShareSigmaChi has teamed up with Greek Challenge Coins for a Twitter promotion that is giving away 12 free Sigma Chi Greek Challenge Coins.
