Consultation Menu

A Brief Explanation of the Menu...

The main goal of all chapter consultations is to make a chapter better. The menu format allows groups the flexibility to customize a consultation to fit their chapter’s needs and goals. Menu consultations have replaced chapter "visits," during which chapters have traditionally had little choice in the focus areas and items addressed, and rarely developed a lasting and continuing relationship after the staff member left. "Consultations" start long before the consultant arrives and continue throughout the academic year. The main role of the consultant is as a facilitator, or "someone who makes progress easier." By guiding the chapter through a process, he will increase the chapter's strength and effectiveness.

Starting in 2018-2019, consultants are working with officers to identify two-three focus areas for each consultation. Focus areas are then addressed during the on-site consultation through additional officer, committee, and group meetings designed to help the chapter establish or improve plans in a specific operational area or to provide education and training on a specific topic or skill.

Focus areas are mapped against a menu of available meetings to add to the standard consultation schedule. Consultants will determine the appropriate meetings to add to the schedule based on the chapter's specific needs.

For more information on focus areas and meetings to add to the consultation, please check with your consultant.
