Grand Vice President - Collegiates


Greetings from your GVPC! The Spring Edition of LinKS was published at the start of this semester. As I am writing this, it occurs to me that many of you are furiously studying for finals or preparing for graduation. Time sure does fly! I hope you all had a great semester. Many chapters have accomplished so much these past few months. I am in awe of each one of you. You should be proud of what you have accomplished.


As of this summer, my term as GVPC will end. It has been an absolute pleasure serving you in this capacity. I enjoyed being your GVPC and have learned a lot from all of you. I loved getting to know all the chapters and am looking forward to seeing you all again at future conventions. You will be in good hands with your next GVPC, Afton Wagner! 


I hope you all enjoy this Summer Edition of LinKS. Feel free to email me suggestions for future LinKS publications.



Lambs Love,

Risk Management and the Code of Conduct
Lambda Kappa Sigma adopted a Risk Management program in 2008 to protect our members and our Fraternity. Through this program, LKS has taken a strong stance against hazing, drugs and alcohol. A Code of Conduct was created and each member is required to read and sign it. 
In addition, LKS has implemented an event-planning approval process for overnight and weekend chapter events, as well as for events that are held more than 40 miles from the campus. If your chapter wishes to plan such an event, please submit a petition and an event planning form to the Grand Council 30 days prior to the date of the event. 
The Grand Council is currently working on detailed event guidelines to assist with planning. Stay tuned for more information. Please contact your Region Supervisor if you have any questions regarding Risk Management and/or the Code of Conduct.

Every chapter must maintain communication with their Region Supervisor, Grand Vice President for Collegiates and IO. Your Region Supervisor should have communicated with you what their expectations are, what reports you need to send and what the important deadlines are. Please be sure to review all the IO deadlines and ensure all deadlines are met. When emailing me, your GVPC, please use the following email address:
