How Golden Chapters Succeed Start the planning process with chapter excellence in mind Plan programs with both chapter excellence and educational excellence in mind Build a website if you don’t have one already Encourage members to attend state and international events and be involved at those levels Make the most of donations Watch those deadlines and don’t let them get away from you.
How Golden Chapters Succeed Appoint someone (or a committee) to oversee chapter excellence Use every available opportunity to earn points Ask for help! Invite state officers, area directors, members of other chapters to meet with you and brainstorm Remember Chapter Excellence has nothing to do with chapter size. Even small chapters can be gold!
