Brothers and Sisters of the Southeast District,

The SED Councils are pleased to announce that the 2017 District Leadership Conference will be hosted by the Eta Phi Chapter of Tau Beta Sigma at Vanderbilt University on February 11, 2017. The Councils considered several excellent bids, and we appreciate those chapters who took the time to submit a bid to host.

Stay tuned in the coming months for updates from the Councils and hosts on what to expect from DLC! Presidents, please take a moment to forward this important message to your chapters!


An Update from your SED Treasurer, Kathleen Elwell

Hello Sisters!

In order to better assist your chapters I have created a financial status survey. This will allow myself, and the rest of the district council, to allocate financial resources in ways that will best suit the specific needs that our chapters have. The link to the survey is located in the menu bar above.

The survey is to be filled out by chapter treasurers. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!
