Greek Event Registration
1. Logging Hours Done with your Chapter in ANCHOR LINK 2. Capturing Hours Done with Other Organizations through the Method of your Choice
“With your Chapter” means: community service activities planned or coordinated by your chapter ◦ *Attending or planning a benefit or philanthropy event does not count The Community Service Chair is responsible for recording these hours in ANCHOR LINK through the chapter’s page This includes all hours from the entire year considered for standards (March February 2013)
Community Service Chair enters the name and hours for each service project participant here You will receive an excel spreadsheet of these hours prior to standards
These hours can be recorded through the method of your choice ◦ Ex. Excel spreadsheet, Google doc, note cards, etc. The Community Service Chair is responsible for reviewing these hours and removing anything that is not considered service You will combine these hours with chapter hours from ANCHOR LINK in a 3 tabbed spreadsheet for standards
Review the Excel printout of your chapter’s current service hours that have been recorded in ANCHOR LINK ◦ *If you don’t have a printout, your chapter has not recorded any hours! If your chapter has input/approved service hours in ANCHOR LINK that were not done with your chapter, contact me at
