Continue to develop a close relationship with your Chapter Be prepared to act as a guide and confidant Be the link (if needed) to Grand Chapter Sell the Action Plan
We need you to :- Thoroughly familiarise yourself with the process Present the process to the Chapter (not just the SE) Encourage the completion of their Action Plan Encourage a review of their plans at the stated time – chase up etc Encourage an assessment by the Chapter of their Action Plans after no more than 12 months
Provide positive feedback on the results of their assessment. During and after the first 12 months provide feedback to the GIWkgs on the overall health of the Chapter as a consequence of the planning process highlighting any areas that the Chapter succeeds or fails in (it can be general in context to protect the privacy of the Chapter if desired), in order that the process can be fine-tuned in the future.
What if I have a question or the Chapter asks of me a question that I can’t answer ?
I like easy questions best but I’ll take hard questions if I have to.
Remember the success of this will be the direct result of your efforts and we can’t thank you enough for them. Thank you – thank you – thank you
