"I love convention because I get to be with sisters across the country that I have emailed with and followed on Facebook all throughout the year. It’s like a one week slumber party with 100 of my best girlfriends!"
Linda Bobo, Delta Chi, University of Central Oklahoma
"To me, convention is about reconnecting. It’s about reuniting with old friends and making new ones. It is about reflecting on our ritual and taking part in an Initiation ceremony with hundreds of my Sigma Kappa sisters. It’s about friendship, sisterhood, lots of hard work and lots of laughing. It is five days jam-packed of living, breathing and loving Sigma Kappa – five days I wouldn’t change for the world."
Melinda Starbuck Mettler, Delta Theta, Truman State University
"It's hard to pick a favorite convention, because each one has its own special memories with my sisters: attending a Reds game in Cincinnati, walking the National Mall in DC, trying to look your best despite the 110 degree heat in Palm Springs, and riding Space Mountain in Orlando. The 2004 Convention picture hangs in my office and reminds me daily of the best Sigma Kappa has to offer: loyalty, personal growth, service and friendship. At any convention you'll renew your loyalty to our organization, find opportunities for personal growth, experience the service of our volunteers and renew or even make lasting friendships. I encourage anyone who can to attend convention. You won't regret it!" -
Mary Ellen Elkins, Gamma Lambda, East Tennessee State University

"This photo at Confirmed Conventionite 2010 in Orlando is with one of my all time favorite Sigma Kappa women, Pat Mills, Iota, University of Denver. She is a former national council member and lives in the Reno, Nevada area. I JUST ADORE HER! And look forward to having coffee with her at every convention for a 10 minute breather."
Angie Ahrens, Beta Eta, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
"Scottsdale, Ariz., was the site of my first national convention. The fire chief from the Scottsdale Fire Department was the National Housing Corporation's banquet speaker. During his address, the fire alarm went off (because the steam table in the banquet room was located too close to the sensor) and we had to evacuate the room. Our guess was that the Sigma Kappas were just too hot!"
Lyle Meisner Williams, Epsilon Beta, University of New Oreleans
"My favorite part of convention is the Initiation ceremony. To be in the same room with hundreds of sisters, all witnessing and reciting the same ritual is so beautiful and really reminds me of our Founders' vision and courage. I always feel re-energized and proud to be a Sigma Kappa."
Malana Hartzog Salyer, Alpha Theta, University of Lousiville
