Tips for working with collegiate chapters

Beta Gamma Sigma’s first-term recognition ceremony season is in full swing for many collegiate chapters. We actively encourage them to collaborate with their local alumni chapters, and we hope you’ll represent your alumni chapter at the recognition ceremonies.


Need some talking points or advice for working with collegiate chapters? We created some tools just for you. The link below contains an easy fill-in-the-blank script you can use when asked to speak at recognition ceremonies. If you'd prefer not to use a script or would prefer to write one yourself, there are talking points available with updated statistics and history about BGS that you can use as well.
