The Collegiate Chapter Officer Structure Workgroup has compiled recommendations to permit chapters to adopt an officer structure that better supports their chapters' needs and varying sizes. With the proposal we hope to better align with our NPC peers and streamline a more efficient officer system for our members. Our recommendations encompass the following ideas: creating a scalable officer model for our collegiate chapters, paring down officer responsibilities to essential collegiate operation needs, renaming and re-organizing to help collegians translate their officer experience to a resume and making officer responsibilities more equitable.
The workgroup proposes Sigma Kappa move to a three-tiered officer structure made up of a governing board of VPs, an executive council of directors and an optional subset of chair positions. The governing board would serve to lead the chapter and overall direction of the membership, the directors would take the ideas of the VPs and strategically put them into action and the chair positions would carry out the plans and tangible task of the directors.
The workgroup proposes Sigma Kappa adopt a scalable-up officer model allowing our collegiate chapters to scale up based on size and need. The smallest scale of governing board and executive council would be required by all collegiate chapters as written in the newly proposed bylaw language. From there, National Policy Handbook (NPH), would outline additional models for chapters to scale up with allocating officer responsibilities equitably.
