Carlson is a celebration of all that SigEp chapters have accomplished over the previous year. It provides a venue for the presentation of awards, recognizing chapters and individual undergraduates and volunteers for notable achievements in recruitment, development and scholarship. Nominations for awards for SigEp chapters, undergraduates and volunteers are due Nov. 8, 2019.
Carlson provides education for each specific executive officer position, as well as strategic planning and goal-setting, and chapter leadership. The program emphasizes the use of each officer’s individual strengths to build a complete team. Participants spend time on chapter analysis, large and small group sessions, and informal interactions with other chapters. Participants will enhance their skill sets and leadership abilities to help them as chapter officers, in other leadership roles, in group projects and, eventually, in the workforce for the rest of their lives.
Chapter officers will return to campus with a better understanding of their position, as well as a holistic strategy for moving their chapter forward. More than 150 seasoned volunteers from across the country share their experiences as facilitators during the program.
Balanced Man Program and Recruitment Tracks
Training is also provided specifically for member development and recruitment chairmen and committee members through the BMP and Recruitment tracks at Carlson.
Rising Leaders Program & Hickman Scholars
Designed for talented young brothers with the desire to step into chapter officer positions, SigEp’s Rising Leaders program at the Carlson Leadership Academy prepares members to take ownership of the future, for themselves and for their Fraternity. Under the guidance of industry experts, brothers begin developing the courage and awareness necessary to lead others. The planning, project management, delegation and collaboration techniques taught by this program equip young brothers with skills to improve their chapter, campus and community.
Thanks to the generosity of Kent B. Hickman, Colorado ’61, rising leaders can apply for spots as Hickman Scholars in the Rising Leaders program at each Carlson Leadership Academy. Hickman Scholars will receive complimentary registration and lodging as well as an elevated travel stipend of $0.20/mile. To be eligible for the program, applicants must be first-time Carlson attendees who are not planning to attend this year as an executive officer. Apply by Oct. 15 to be a Hickman Scholar.
