Every chapter meeting should be an informative and enjoyable experience. Besides conducting chapter business, good meetings should include entertainment, guest speakers, recreation and refreshments. Variety in programs is essential for maintaining successful meetings.
Official opening and closing ceremonies are to be used at all meetings. Well performed ceremonies build pride and enthusiasm, not only in the officer team, but within the entire chapter. A majority of chapter business should involve items planned in the POA.
