The end of Region Leadership Conferences is the perfect time to celebrate your chapter’s winners! Host an RLC Winners Reception to recognize the members who exceeded in their competitions. Invite both winners and the rest of the chapter.
During the event, recognize your Region Winners and State Qualifiers. They deserve credit for all of their hard work. This will put a smile on their faces, and encourage them to study hard so they can succeed at SLC. This will also encourage other members to work harder for next year’s events and straight to state events.
Also, make sure you are preparing your members for the State Leadership Conference. We are only 1 month from SLC! At your meeting, you could have your members present or just have a study session for your testing competitors. Encourage your members to study and to get excited by showing pictures of your chapter from the 2018 SLC or by recognizing your Region winners. Get your members excited about SLC this month at your meeting!
Food makes any activity better. If your event is before school, pick up some donuts and coffee. If it is later in the day, pizza is always an inexpensive way to feed a crowd. Encourage members to meet new people and network while they eat: it will be a great way for younger members to talk to those more experienced in competitions. However you structure your event: just remember to make it fun!
