CHAIR POSITIONS

Kappa Sigma's main objective is based on building a better man, while encouraging him to participate in other campus organizations that he may choose. More specifically, Kappa Sigma looks to provide the opportunity to enhance your network, leadership skills, scholastic involvement, and service contribution to the local community. 

 

As a student-based organization, we recognize that upon graduation, our members will be entering a competitive, career-driven world in the 21st century. It's becoming increasingly vital that we seek to provide our members with the best opportunity for their success in the "real world" after their active years at Carleton. We provide opportunities for our members to apply for chair positions in order to obtain those real-world experiences and build their resumes in order to compete at an elite level once they enter the workforce (not to mention they also help keep our organization running smoothly and help it grow).

 

With that in mind, we treat these positions like jobs and our organization like a social enterprise. Through these positions, our members develop relevant life skills such as accountability, organization, project management, public speaking, event planning, and more. Members will seek to take positions that will help them attain career-focused goals, using these to gain real-world experience or technical skills relevant to future employers. 

Our good friend and ex-CUSA President Fahd Alhattab teaches our Chi Pledge Class and other Active Brothers some of the key points of Public Speaking. Fahd has spoken to over 40,000 youth across Canada, speaking on topics that range from leadership, community engagement (volunteering), social entrepreneurship and more!

Brothers In Action Chairs Riley Hickman and Rayhan Memon follow up afterwards with a class on Planning, Networking & Goal Setting.

For those who don't hold chair positions, Kappa Sigma also offers an array of committees open to any active member interested in gaining experience working with a team.

Chairman work both individually with minimal supervision, and with each other and the Executive Committee member that presides over them to facilitate their duties to the best of their ability. New ideas and a zealous attitude are encouraged to produce great results.
