Regional Liaison Intent to Run Form
This form should be used to show your interest in serving as a 2021 - 2022 Regional Liaison. The National Executive Committee will review your application and will appoint representatives to serve as liaisons for each region.
The deadline to apply is August 6th, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET.
Regional liaisons (RLs) serve as the bridge of communication between the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the local chapters. Regional liaisons help the National Executive Committee (NEC) extend its reach to all its local chapters and streamline vital communication to ensure that our chapters are abiding by the bylaws, remaining active by hosting events, and have the support they need to succeed. As PLS grows and charters chapters not only all over the US but also across international borders, our regional liaisons facilitate upholding the stands of our leadership society across all these chapters.
Each regional liaison is responsible for two monthly meetings—one with the chapter presidents of their designated region and the other with the NEC. During the NEC meetings, the NEC provides the RLs with important information to relay to local chapters and the RLs communicate any questions or updates from their chapters.
In addition, Phi Lambda Sigma is proud to provide a Leader Academy for regional liaisons if they choose to participate. The Leader Academy consists of bimonthly meetings during which a facilitator discusses the GiANT voices and tools. Participating in the leader academy enriches leadership experience and provides RLs with tools to liberate other leaders. Regional liaisons help the NEC extend its reach to all its local chapters and streamline vital communication to ensure that our chapters are abiding by the bylaws, remaining active by hosting events, and have the support they need to succeed.
As PLS grows and charters chapters throughout the US and across international borders, our regional liaisons facilitate upholding the standards of our leadership society across all these chapters.

Chapter Reporting Forms
Due August 31st
All Chapters should submit an annual Chapter Report and a Chapter Officer Transition Form to the National Office no later than August 31st each year.
The Chapter Report is used by the National Executive Committee to assess trends among chapter, to develop programming to strengthen our collegiate members, and to determine the Chapter of the Year Award.
Submissions are generally accepted after June 1st each year. The reporting period may be different based on the academic year of your school. If your chapter conducts events outside of a traditional academic year (ie July/August-May/June), you may choose when to report activities but they should not be included on multiple years’ reports.
Electronic submission of a single PDF file via the Google Form accessed on PLS website is required.
When saving your file, please follow this exact format for the file name:
Greek Letter Name_ School Name_Year.
Example: Alpha_ Auburn University_2020
At a minimum, chapters should include the information found on pages 2 and 3 of the Chapter Report Description (see link below). Additional information is welcomes, as the chapters sees fit. If you have questions about the submission process, please contact the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chapter Officer Transition Form:
This form is to ensure the continuity of contact between the Phi Lambda Sigma National Executive Committee and our local chapters. While we understand that you may not have the same officer position titles at every chapter, we need the contact information and title for each outgoing and incoming officer.
This form should be filled out annually (by August 31st) by each chapter in order to ensure that communication may continue between our chapters and the Phi Lambda Sigma National Executive Committee.
The link to submit these documents can be found HERE.
