SigEp’s best chapters have two things in common: they hold a thoughtful and well-structured election process and conduct a comprehensive transition retreat to establish continuity and ensure incoming leaders are setup for success. The sections below provide guidance and resources to help your chapter achieve these goals.
Officer elections are one of the most overlooked, yet important, processes chapters implement. Great chapters ensure that the top candidates run, are elected, are prepared to take the office and are successful as they take on newfound responsibility among their brothers.
We’ve created this resource, Maximizing Officer Elections, to help your chapter take advantage of this important process.

The process of transitioning officers is one of the most critical steps in the long-term stability and success of a chapter. Executive board members are the elected leaders of the chapter. Their ability to set the tone and direction of the chapter will determine its success. When leaders change, a smooth officer transition is the only way to ensure operational consistency and continued success.
SigEp’s Officer Transition Guide provides the necessary steps and supporting resources to ensure your chapter reaps the benefits of this important transition period.
