  2.  Executive Summary: Create a concise statement about the overall health of your chapters.
  3. Chapter Development Goals: List 3-5 goals you’d like to accomplish in the next year. Create actionable sub-tasks and determine who this will be assigned to.
  4. General Support: What general support do you provide to your chapters? List out all tasks/services and tool that National provides.
  5. Issues of Concern: What drives you nuts about your chapters? What should they be doing, but aren’t?

  7. Analysis of Chapters: List out all of your chapters. Provide at least one strength, weakness and opportunity/recommendation per chapter.
  8. Review Goals: Now that you have a good idea on your chapters’ strengths and weaknesses, use that to revise and update your goals.
