Sigma Chi completes another Balfour LTW

The International Fraternity wrapped up the 2013 Balfour Leadership Training Workshop (LTW) this week, with a record-breaking number of attendees and curriculum for Sigma Chi’s undergraduate delegates.
Balfour LTW was hosted at Purdue University, where 2,057 Sigs descended upon West Lafayette, Ind. That attendance total breaks the previous best of 1,901 Sigs who attended the 2012 Balfour LTW, also at Purdue.
In addition to networking with their counterparts from other chapters, the Fraternity’s undergraduate officers were treated to talks by International Sweetheart Mary Sugden and Significant Sig Keith Ferrazzi, YALE 1988, who spoke about the importance of networking and making positive impressions on others. Ferazzi is the author of Never Eat Alone and Who’s Got Your Back.
The International Balfour Award, Sigma Chi’s highest undergraduate honor, was presented to Andrew Esstman, INDIANA 2013. Esstman is a former Consul and Interfraternity Council president with a 3.95 GPA. Upon accepting his award, he encouraged the chapter officers in the audience to “be respected first, and liked second, for the work that you do for your chapters.”
The William H. Carlisle Jr. Outstanding Workshop Faculty Award, honoring the most effective Balfour LTW facilitator as voted on by the facilitators themselves, went to Significant Sig, Order of Constantine Sig and Grand Tribune The Rev. Skip Flynn, MIAMI (FLORIDA) 1967, who was a facilitator for the risk management division.
Finally, the Peterson Significant Chapter Award, the Fraternity’s most prestigious award for undergraduate chapters, was given to 68 chapters. Sixty-four chapters won Peterson Blue Awards for scoring between 90 and 96.99 percent on their award applications, while four chapters won Peterson Gold Awards for earning scores between 97 and 100 percent. You can view a list of Peterson Significant Chapter Award winners here, or on the Sigma Chi Fraternity’s Twitter feed from the evening of Aug. 3, 2013.
