REPORT: ALPHA SIGMA ALPHA LEADERSHIP TRAINING SCHOOL The week-end of August 19-21 provided an educational "first" for selected members of eleven midwestern collegiate chapters and seven National Officers at the pilot Alpha Sigma Alpha Leadership Training School held on the campus of Southwestern Missouri State College at Springfield . Information concerning the School was sent early in the summer to the collegiate chapters in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. Four delegates from each chapter were invited, preferably the President, Treasurer, Membership Director, and Panhellenic Delegate, with the Rush Chairman being the suggested alternate. Early Friday afternoon the delegates began arriving at the Beta Sigma chapter house where they were greeted by the Beta Sigma chapter members who acted as hostesses. The Alumnae House Board had graciously made the chapter house available for the week-end, and for many of the delegates, it was their first experience in staying in an Alpha Sigma Alpha chapter house.

The get-acquainted party Friday evening was a "fun time" for all, so much so that the delegates whose late arrivals forced them to miss the party vowed to make arrangements to arrive earlier next year. Saturday morning everyone assembled in a classroom at the campus Student Union, a short block from the Beta Sigma house, for sessions on Voting, Membership and Rush. Saturday afternoon, following a delicious luncheon served by the Springfield alumnae members at the Beta Sigma house, the delegates returned to the Student Union for session on Finances and National Procedures, after which everyone assembled for a tour of the new Alpha Sigma Alpha National Headquarters several blocks from the campus. Mrs. Harry G. Rowe, National Headquarters Executive, explained the work that is done in the National Headquarters, and following the tour, the delegates had an opportunity to look for their own records among the vast filing system.
