Officer and volunteer education
In 2023, eight executive officers will have tracks dedicated to their role:
- VP communications
- VP finance
- VP member development
- VP programming
- VP recruitment
- VP SigEp Learning Community
Additionally, up-and-coming chapter leaders can attend Carlson in the Rising Leaders track. Designed for talented young brothers with the desire to step into chapter officer positions in the future, this leadership orientation will prepare members to further their skills in important areas like project management, delegation and collaboration.Carlson is not just for undergraduate leaders! Volunteer-specific education, featuring both foundational training and role-based roundtables, will be featured at every program. Learn more about volunteer training at Carlson.

Carlson programming will focus on eight executive officers: chapter president, VP of member development, VP of recruitment, chaplain, VP of SigEp Learning Community, VP of communications, VP of finance and VP of programming. Every newly elected officer in these roles should plan to attend. Because the programming is tailored and specific to officers currently in this role, replacements may not be sent in their place if the elected brother cannot attend.
A track for rising leaders will also be geared towards brothers who hope to hold an executive board position in the future. It will focus on the building blocks of great leadership. This track is perfect for committee chairmen, other non-executive board officers and up-and-coming leaders.

The registration and lodging for all eight executive board officers is fully covered by a combination of the chapter’s fall bill and generous donations to the SigEp Educational Foundation’s Annual Fund. In short, the eight executive board officers will not need to pay anything additional for registration or lodging.
All undergraduates attending the Rising Leaders track are responsible for a $300 registration fee and their own lodging costs. This year, SigEp is excited to offer $150 off the regular $300 fee to the first 200 rising leaders that register using the code MYFUTURE.
The Fraternity will make your hotel reservation based on the officers registered from your chapter.
- If you send five to eight officers, we will reserve two rooms for you for arrival on Friday and departure on Sunday. The room/tax will be paid for by the Fraternity.
- If you send four or fewer officers, we will reserve one room for you (also for arrival on Friday and departure on Sunday).
Our Carlson hotel partners only allow four adults per sleeping room. If your executive board officers have extra space in their room (ex: only seven officers can come, so there is one space left), then yes, the rising leader can stay in that hotel room. However, if you do not have extra space, you must reserve and pay for an additional hotel room. If you choose to break hotel policy and have more than four men in a room, you risk being asked to leave by the hotel staff.
