Chapter Events

The Omicron Delta chapter elections are coming up! 

One of the most rewarding ways a member can be involved with the chapter is by becoming an officer or member of the Board of Directors.  Having a direct impact on guiding the chapter and interacting with members is a fantastic experience.  The first step in the chapter election process is filling the ballot with members who are looking to get more involved in the chapter and Sigma leadership. 
If you are interested in running for one of the open positions, please make sure to get your Willingness to Serve form in by December 30, 2023.  Voting begins on February 1 and ends on February 28th.  Elected officers will be notified in March so orientation may be completed before the new terms start on July 1, 2024. 

This year's open positions are Treasurer (2 year term), Counselor (2 year term), and two Leadership Succession Committee members (2 year terms). 

Help make a difference in the future of your Chapter!

Detailed job descriptions may be found here if you have any questions: LEADERSHIP POSITION DESCRIPTIONS

Communications and chapter business are conducted by phone, e-mail, and an annual face-to-face meeting. Costs for conducting chapter business are budgeted by the Chapter.

Omicron Delta President 2022-2024

I am humbled and honored to REpresent the Omicron Delta Chapter as your President. This is my second time serving the chapter in this role, so I guess you could say I am a REpeat President. In the dictionary, RE is defined as once again or as a matter of intensity. As such, I have a REnewed REspect for all of our members, chapter and regional leaders, and Sigma. I have been actively involved with this chapter since it was chartered in 1998. Sigma, University of Phoenix and Omicron Delta hold a special fondness in my heart and I REsolve to continue to devote my time and talents to the success of the chapter. You were REcommended to join Sigma because of your outstanding scholarship, leadership, and service. YOU have something unique to offer! I REcognize that you have knowledge, experience, and wisdom to share and hope that this message will REsonate with you.

My message is three-pronged:
Remember, Reconnect, and Renew!

REMEMBER: Remember how excited you were to be invited to join Sigma! Remember how you felt sharing the news with your colleagues and family! Remember learning about the honor society’s founding values of Love, Courage, and Honor! Remember your induction ceremony and the joy that you felt with your accomplishment!

RECONNECT: Explore Omicron Delta’s chapter website for opportunities to Reconnect and REkindle RElationships with faculty, colleagues, friends, and chapter leaders. Reconnect on The Circle, Sigma’s private online networking community that REaches nursing peers from around the world. Perhaps you will REignite your love of REsearch and REinvest in your education. REcharge and REfine your career with RElevant REsources available with numerous online nursing continuing professional development. REorient yourself with chapter service activities. I encourage you to stay connected through our website: https://omicrondelta.sigmanursing.org/home where we post all our events, committees, and scholarship opportunities.

RENEW: Renew the excitement that you felt when you joined Sigma and were inducted. Renew your spirit of self-discovery by attending one of the Awareness Focus Chats, Knots, Needles, Notes and Nibbles or the No Book, Book Club. REgister your points in the Footsteps program and REdeem for Sigma swag. You have a REputation for Excellence. I hope you will Renew your confidence in your leadership. Be a Mentor or Mentee.
