Student Advisory Committee
Step 1 - Meet with Marco and the rest of the National Council to clarify what it is exactly that each officer is going to need from the committee.
Step 2 - Meet with District Officers to clarify what their goals are for the term and find ways that I can help them achieve these goals. I will work with the previous VPSA to learn everything I can about the work and conversations she had with the District Officers before the new biennium. I think it is important that we prioritize the District Officers’ goals and ideas and ensure that they are engaged, equipped, and empowered to lead their districts at the highest possible level.
Step 3 - Develop a meeting schedule for the next 6 months (August - January). After reviewing all goals, plans, and ideas, I would like to set specific times that the Student Advisory Committee will meet. In addition, I would like to use some of these meetings to allow for specific positions to meet and collaborate with one another. After speaking to the current VPSA, I have come to learn that district officers need a time to brainstorm solutions and ideas with their respective officers from the other districts (e.g. all 6 District Presidents will meet)
Step 4 - Task the committee with reviewing any/all charges from National Convention (2019) and creating an action plan around those charges and their own goals. We will utilize this action plan to prioritize work so that District Officers can feel they have a balanced approach between district and national work.
Step 5 - Create subgroups to review and assess the following content: OMRS Guidebook, Chapter Officer Training & Resources, the Founders’ Circle, the Road to Wisdom, and our national awards/scholarships. These subgroups will then develop reports that will focus on areas where the National Council can do a better job of breaking down information and communicating the important details with our Active members. These reports will then be shared with the National Council and the Communications Committee.
Step 6 - Task the committee with developing a feedback form that the National Council can send out every 3-6 months. These feedback forms will be sent out to Active members to assess and measure their level of engagement and understanding of our national programs.
Step 7 - Task each District Officer with submitting one topic that they are passionate about and would like for me to cover on a VPSA video chat. These topics can be about anything that affects the daily life of a college/university student. I think it is important that we give students a space to listen, learn, and share their thoughts on important topics, such as diversity and inclusion, mental health awareness, suicide prevention, student life balance, hazing, etc. I will then work with National Leadership to develop a plan and schedule for these VPSA video chats throughout the year.
Step 8 - Task each district with finding outstanding chapter officers, Brothers, musicians for the Communications Committee and I to interview for the national podcast, KKPsi Presents. In an effort to increase accountability, I would like to post these topics and potential guest speakers on a calendar/schedule that all Actives members can see.
Step 9 - Work with the District Governors to discover ways in which I can help them achieve their goals and make their jobs easier. As a past District Officers, I know that there can be a divide between council members and their Governors. My goal is to communicate with both sides so that I can facilitate the flow of information, understanding, and action if needed.
Step 10 - Task the committee to review and assess the Communications Committee’s work (e.g. communication audit, editorial calendar, and drafted content). As someone who works in the communications, I understand that sometimes we can lose sight of out audience. I want to ensure that we consistently have Active members reviewing our content and providing feedback so we don’t lose sight of our audience throughout the year.
