I received the following email this morning and thought it should be shared with others.
Interested in politics?
Passionate about your Greek experience?
Concerned about safe and affordable housing for your members?
The North-American Interfraternity Conference and the National Panhellenic Conference have been working on an ongoing effort to make Greek housing safer and more affordable through the Collegiate Housing Infrastructure Act (CHIA). This upcoming spring you may be able to participate in the annual NIC/NPC Congressional Visits. Sigma Chi is sponsoring a select group of members to attend and help gain support for this important piece of legislation. Two Sigma Chi undergraduates will be chosen.
Each year these visits allow Greek students and Alumni to visit Washington, D.C. and lobby on behalf of issues affecting our collegiate members. Past participants have found this to be a great opportunity for networking and enhancing their knowledge of the legislative and political process.
If selected, all students will be asked to participate in prep work leading up to the Congressional Visits which will take place over April 9-13, 2011 (arrival on 4/9 and departure on 4/13).
An application is available at: https://nicindy.wufoo.com/forms/student-application-for-congressional-visits/. If you are interested please go online and complete the application and forward a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications are due by 5 p.m. on Dec. 10, 2010.
In Hoc Signo Vinces,
