The Sigma Kappa National Housing Corporation ("NHC") is an independent legal entity created by the national organization in 1993 as a response to the growing need for greater financial resources and professional management of sorority chapter property.
As a participant within the Sigma Kappa National Housing Corporation, your corporation will work closely with a designated Corporation Coordinator. This Corporation Coordinator will serve in an advisory role, working with the local house corporation board to build a mutually productive, long-term relationship.
Five Corporation Coordinators are elected to the Sigma Kappa National Housing Corporation Board of Directors, with the National Vice President for Finance of the Sorority as an ex officio, voting member of the Board. The NHC Board of Directors holds an annual meeting each year, and the election of Directors takes place every two years, as directed in the Bylaws of the Sigma Kappa National Housing Corporation.
The NHC staff supports the efforts of the Corporation Coordinators and provides financial management services to participating local house corporations. Based at the Sigma Kappa National Headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, the staff includes the NHC Executive Director, Staff Accountant, Senior Accounts Receivable Specialist, Accounts Payable Specialist, Collections Specialist and Administrative Assistant. They coordinate payroll, billing of accounts receivables and payables, collections and tax filings for participating corporations. They also provide a variety of resources and coordinate many other projects for the NHC.
