Why submit a chapter report?

The FIRST 100 SPS CHAPTERS to submit a chapter report by June 16, 2014, will be entered in a drawing for one of five $100 gift cards for a chapter pizza party—or the party of your choice!

Chapters should consider this report as the prime opportunity to showcase the activities of their chapter. Taking time to reflect on the year’s events and prepare a report is important for the health,  success and growth of the chapter. By looking back on your year, you will remember things to celebrate and  keep for next year, and also see areas for improvement. In addition, your report and chapter information update is very important for the records of the SPS national office in the development of the annual SPS Information Handbook and new programs. So please take the time to tell us all about SPS (and Sigma Pi Sigma) at your school. Your chapter activities may be featured in one of the SPS publications, or here on the SPS website.

NOTES:

Process for Submitting Chapter Reports
Chapter Leaders: Upload Your Chapter Reports Here!

For record keeping, chapter updates are required, and can be done online.
In 2011, the SPS National Council adopted new procedures for submitting Chapter Reports. Please go to the Chapter Report Wiki and follow the submission guidelines:

http://spschapterreports.pbworks.com


Reports AND Chapter Updates must be submitted no later than June 16 to be considered for an Outstanding Chapter Award.

We're moving! The SPS Information Handbook Database, that is.

We ask for your patience while we transition to a new online system that will allow us to better serve SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma chapters. Instructions for updating your chapter information will be posted here by June 2014.

Creating Your SPS Chapter Report

• Here are two examples of winning reports from previous years:

  1. Eastern Michigan University, MI (Zone 7)
  2. Angelo State University, TX (Zone 13)

• To see all of the 2011 Outstanding SPS Chapters, click here.

• To get an idea about the criteria used for this selection process, please see the Chapter Report Rubric.

• Use these templates as a guide for preparing your reportSeveral versions of the template are available. Templatesare also available on the Wiki.

• Supporting materials (for example: photos, programs, news clippings, etc.) should be copied directly into the report and captioned. You may be contacted by the SPS National Office for higher resolution photos should they be needed for publication.

• Be sure to keep a copy of your report locally (not just on the WIKI).

• Once the report is complete please save the report in pdf format (preferred). Most word processors will do this. Saving the file as a pdf insures that reviewers will see the same formatting as the author intended. If saving as a pdf  is not possible, you may upload in word format, but other formats may result in a report that does not appear as intended.

• Upload your report to the WIKI—and look at the exciting reports from chapters all across the nation! This is a great way to get ideas for your chapter efforts toward professional development, outreach/service and even fundraising.
