From the Desk of Melissa Chrisman
Now is a great time to take a critical look at your chapter meetings and your members. Are people attending your meetings? If not, have you reached out to ask them why? For your next chapter meeting or event, prepare a quick survey of three questions: 1) What was your biggest takeaway? 2) How will you use this information/experience as an educator? 3) With which type of programming or events would you like to be involved? Do you need more suggestions? As your RCC, I am ready to assist you.
Epsilon Kappa Chapter
Chapter Highlight
The Epsilon Kappa Chapter at Michigan State University, three-time ACE Award winners, uses social media and their chapter website to keep members informed and engaged. A member-of-the-month program highlights outstanding members, while digital flyers invite members to join in on their weekly service, monthly meetings, and dozens of other activities. Next up for the chapter is mock interviews! Check out their Chapter page and learn more about what they’re up to this year.
