• To get an idea about the criteria used for this selection process, please see the Chapter Report Rubric.
• Use the templates on the Wiki as a guide for preparing your report. Several versions of the template are available (MSWord 2003, MSWord 2007 and PDF).
• 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.
