The SAP continues to rise. WE ARE CLOSE TO REACHING OUR GOAL but we need every chapter to send us their SAP as soon as possible.
It is exciting every time our emails indicate another SAP is being sent. Our deadline to receive acknowledgement at Convention will soon be here (March 15, 2015).Chapters who have sent us a copy of their Strategic Action Plan will be recognized at the Mu State Convention and will receive a certificate and a gift from the committee.
The Mu State goal is 100% participation—if you haven’t sent yours to us yet, you still have time. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO REACH OUR GOAL! Send it to:
Wouldn’t it be great to send a letter or an article to International representing Mu State and our accomplishment? Please send yours today—it can be very simple—one or two goals and a sentence or two suggesting ways you could reach them.
Your help is much appreciated and you will find it to be most beneficial to your chapters.
