In this continuing series, the Board is sharing "what we really do" for the Chapter.
This edition talks about the Chapter President's role. Kit Gonzales, CGMP, is the current Sacramento Chapter Board President and shares her perspective below.
Officially, the Board President serves as the main point of contact for official chapter business, and serves as liaison between the Chapter and the National Board and staff. There are frequent communications and conference calls with the National Board or subcommittees that require participation, action, or decision.
In reality, this President:
Oversees the day-to-day chapter business and committee activities.
- Develops the agenda and runs the board meetings. (Those meetings foster all chapter activities, committees, communications to and with chapter members, and policies and processes (e.g., awards, scholarships, etc.).
- Composes communications for the members.
Serves as ex-officio member of all chapter committees (except Elections).
Participates in the development of the agenda and facilitates the monthly chapter meetings.
Maintains the "education for remote members" Facebook Live private page which includes monitoring active membership status of all involved.
Sets up the monthly surveys and composes the evaluation reports.
Files the on-line monthly report to the national office (currently 31 questions)
The rewards are as discussed at the January chapter meeting: pride in SGMP, developing very good friendships with the other eight board members, working with the national staff; and, I, too, get to hold the credit card.
