The National 2 nd Vice President responsibility of duties include the execution and implementation of the National Projects, Public Relations, Memberships, Awards and Scholarships. The National Project Chairs for each project area are the Stakeholders and are responsible for providing support to the chapters. We needed to be clear and consistent about expectations. To that end, a job duties and responsibilities description was provided to each Chair. Responsible for making the connection from National to Area to local and that we needed to drive the activities outlined in the National Program Resource Guide We wanted for individuals to take ownership for their respective positions and to be successful.
Encourage ways to have TLOD benefit more directly from our relations with NCNW, UNCF, NAACP, and Sickle Cell Awareness. Provide the chapters with the tools and resources necessary to be successful and to increase participation. Share “Tips and Tricks” and strategies to manage the chapters to have positive outcomes on all programs and projects. Develop Partnerships and collaborate with the community and other agencies with like minded goals. We needed to determine how we would measure our successes and to analyze or determine metrics.
National 2 nd Vice President has shared valued information to help empower National Project Chairs to perform at their very best. We have conducted teleconference calls, workshops, webinars, presentations at clusters, alerts, via quarterly Program & Projects Newsletter, and personal phone calls to increase the level of participation among the chapters.
