Get Help Managing Your Chapter
Advisors, consider adding a coadvisor to share your responsibilities. Chapters with more than one advisor have a greater opportunity to grow and successfully navigate future leadership transitions. Take it from DePaul University’s advisors: “Our chapter benefits from having multiple advisors who bring with them a unique set of skills, ideas, experiences, and styles of support.”

Also, remember to update your new officers in the online system. This will grant them special privileges to support your chapter such as access to instructional e-mails like this one.
