Rev up your Chapter
Recruit, Retain, Recognize

During recruiting and retaining tasks, showcase your chapter as a resume builder through projects and community service but also as a place to build friendships and have fun. During recognizing tasks, showcase your chapter successes as a way to build chapter notoriety for member accomplishments.
