Recruiting for your Virtual Chapter
If you don't already have one, you'll need to get a list of all alumnae in your target group from National Headquarters. Write Megan Houghton, Alumnae Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out and submit Form A86 Geographic Directory Request (note on the form you'd like initiates of your home chapter - give greek letter name and school).
Create a Steering Committee - a core group of alumnae who want to be involved members of your new chapter. This can be big or small - ours was around 10 women of different ages, locations, and majors.
The goals of the Steering Committee
- create a mission statement (the purposes section of your bylaws)
- set dues, officers needed to accomplish goals in the mission statement
- set up a private website
- recruit other members
- find lost sisters
