RESOURCES: Chapter Leadership

You have already proven your academic ability in the field of psychology by becoming a Psi Chi member. Now, consider adding an element of leadership to your educational experience by serving as an officer at your local chapter. Officers in Psi Chi organize events, participate in service projects, and may apply for specific awards.

In addition to lifetime membership benefits available to all, officer positions provide real-world, hands-on opportunities to direct fellow members in bettering themselves and your community. Future employers love to see individuals who show sound leadership skills and have dedicated themselves to a worthwhile cause such as your Psi Chi chapter.

What does being a leader mean for you?

Florence L. Denmark, PhD
Psi Chi President, 1978–80

“Psi Chi members and leaders in the past not only coped with change, but they helped to direct it as you will do. Because of your aspiration and achievement of excellence, you are encouraging and stimulating others to reach beyond mediocrity, which in turn leads to change in the way people behave and feel about themselves and others. Your challenge today is to build on this legacy and to expand your influence in advancing change for the betterment of people around the world.”
