Alpha Xi Delta holds National Convention every two years. This meeting serves as the time for conducting national chapter business and provides an opportunity for interaction between alumnae and collegiate members.

Each National Convention includes a number of educational and leadership sessions for collegiate and alumnae attendees and is a time for Sisters to bond while creating fun-filled memories. All Alpha Xi Deltas are welcome to attend.

Board Nominations

Alpha Xi Delta’s Committee on Leadership invites you to recommend Sisters to serve on the Fraternity’s 2019-21 National Council, the 2019-21 National Housing Corporation, and the Foundation’s 2019-23 Board of Trustees by filling out the form below.

Recommendations are due January 15, 2019.

Individual Sisters, college chapters and alumnae associations can submit recommendations to the Committee on Leadership. Members may also self-nominate. From there, the Committee on Leadership will prepare a slate of candidates for each board to be voted on at National Convention in Seattle, Washington, July 3-6, 2019.   

 

As you consider joining one of our Alpha Xi Delta boards, please familiarize yourself  with the list of expectations for each board listed below. In addition, here are some questions to consider:

  • Is Alpha Xi Delta the right cause and organization for me?

  • Can I work with Alpha Xi Delta and this board at this particular stage in my life?

  • What can I, and what will I, contribute to this organization?

  • What do I want to get out of being on this board?

 

 

To make a recommendation, fill out the form below by January 15, 2019. The Committee on Leadership will review all recommendations and obtain a Leadership Application/Nomination from each candidate. The committee then prepares a slate of candidates who they believe are best qualified to fulfill the responsibilities and meet the challenges of each of our three National boards. By mid-April 2019, the slate and candidates’ resumes are sent to those eligible to vote at the 2019 National Convention.  Questions about the nomination process can be directed to Sandi Edwards, Chair of the Committee on Leadership at leadershipcommittee@alphaxidelta.org.
