LAWRENCE, KS — Phi Sigma Nu, the oldest and largest American Indian Fraternity in the nation, held its 10th Annual Chief Convention at Haskell Indian Nations University, July 23-25, 2015. Since 2006, members from across the country gather during the last full weekend in July to network, attend workshops, vote on resolutions, elect national officers, and plan for the year ahead – all to strengthen and celebrate the fraternity.
During the opening ceremony, Haskell President Dr. Venida Chenault thanked the fraternity for choosing Haskell as host of the convention and encouraged the men in attendance to keep up their efforts to better themselves and their communities. “The time is now. Indian Country needs your leadership,” said Chenault.
The agenda called for team building and leadership development activities, a tour of the Haskell Cultural Center & Museum, workshops focused on membership intake and chapter excellence, a presentation on Haskell’s early years by professor Dr. Theresa Milk, and a community service project.
