On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Planning Committee, I am delighted to welcome our Sigma Family and Guests to Lincolnshire, Illinois for our 78th Central Region Conference.  We plan to paint the town Blue & Gold from Thursday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 25th, 2018.   This is Central Region's largest event dedicated to give all attendees an opportunity to network, participate in leadership development activities, complete all regional business activities and participate in scholastic and service initiatives that directly impact our host city.  We are honored to have Mu Kappa Sigma Chapter serve as our conference hosts.

The conference will be held at the Chicago Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, which is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation to elevate its 389 guest rooms and suites.   We hope you will indulge in the abundant recreation, including a PGA golf course, full service SPA, tennis center, two pools and a highly acclaimed live musical theater.  

This year's theme is: PHENOMENAL WOMAN.  Throughout the weekend, we will embrace our power as women and invite our guests to invest in SELF to create a more successful YOU.  The stronger we become - the more we can impact those around us.  We hope you will decide to join our delegation in March 2018.  We have several special events and initiatives planned for all of our special guests.  It is the #SisterhoodGetaway!

REGISTER TODAY!
