South Bay Sigs (Beach Cities/El Segundo/Torrance/Palos Verdes)
GEM Leader: Kevin Bidenkap (Arizona St '90)
The South Bay Area Sigs have been meeting since 2003 in the Beach Cities of the South Bay: Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, & Redondo Beach. Usually it's a happy hour in Hermosa Beach. Those will continue.
The South Bay does include the cities of El Segundo & Torrance and further wraps in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many brothers live in and work in these areas.
We will likely try a lunch soon in Torrance and perhaps a dinner in Redondo or Manhattan beach. Keep checking back to our events calendar for details.
The Los Angeles County Sigma Chi Alumni Chapter is the oldest continuing alumni chapter west of the Mississippi River, having been organized and founded in 1898 and officially chartered July 7th, 1903. That's some tenure and we're proud of it. You have the opportunity here now to meet fellow brothers and connect for socal, professional, and certainly fraternal reasons.
Who are we? Brothers from local Southern California chapters certainly, but also all the way out to the east coast and Canada, bonded by our brotherhood but also for connectivity to Southern California by roots, school, or just for fun. Many Sigma Chis move here for professional reasons, for family, for retirement, or just for the weather. All initiated brothers are welcome, alumni or undergraduate.
The chapter is geographically expansive, covering the entire County of Los Angeles and just a bit beyond. We have, and will continue to, create and grow sub-pockets in areas where brothers are more concentrated, allowing you to participate in activities without necessarily traveling across this large
area we represent. We call these sub-groups or pockets "GEMs" for Gatherings/Events/Meetings. We can also have them for specific industries and interests, ie. "Sigs in Entertainment."
Herein this website, and its pages, you will learn about our chapter, it's membership, officers, activities, and resources. We invite you to join us, and join in our activities. We welcome you especially as a supporting member by virtue of signing up for annual dues to the chapter. These dues allow us to maintain our membership with Sigma Chi Headquarters, and augment our communications and outreach, scholarships for undergrauate brothers, and more. The fees are nominal and we appreciate your support so we can keep the chapter, our activities, and this site going.
So get started by looking through the site and give us your feedback. Thank you for visiting!
