Presenting the Sigma Delta Pi medallion: 3″ in diameter and packaged in a black felt pouch that may be used for award presentations. Suitable as a paperweight, a component for plaque mounting, or other uses that appropriately represent Sigma Delta Pi and its mission, the medallion is ideal as a gift for chapter guest speakers or other dignified friends and associates of Sigma Delta Pi who deserve a special recognition on behalf of the Society. Due to limited quantity, medallions will only be sold directly to chapters, not to individual members. Chapters wishing to purchase the Sigma Delta Pi medallion should use the standard order form (downloadable at http://www.sigmadeltapi.org/CR.Forms.html), write in the item and unit price ($25.00 per medallion, $8 standard shipping and handling fee for entire order), and submit the completed form to the Executive Director.
Chapters have received via e-mail an official call for nominations for national officers (president and vice president of one’s region) for the 2016-19 triennium. Only one nomination form per active chapter may be submitted. Deadline for nominations: NOON (EST) November 30, 2015.
