Enrichment and Inspiration for Beta Sigma Phi Sisters from Marilyn Ross
Good cultural programs, fulfilling the purposes of Beta Sigma Phi, are the responsibility of the Program Committee. Those serving on the Program committee should assist in creating presentations that enlighten and entertain the membership.
GOOD PROGRAMS ARE WELL THOUGHT OUT AND PLANNED AHEAD WITH THE INTERESTS OF ALL MEMBERS IN MIND. The special interests and talents of chapter members should be kept in mind.
Every regular meeting should have a cultural program based on Programs A la Carte (Nu Phi Mu, Ritual of Jewels, Exemplar) and either from the suggested programs offered to Preceptor & Laureate degree chapters OR individually selected programs from higher degree members themselves.
Outlines sent from International serve as guides. They can be followed exactly, or can be used as a starting point to explore the interests expressed by members of the chapter. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ADHERE TO THE EXACT OUTLINE IN EVERY DETAIL!
The Program Committee should complete its assignments prior to Beginning Day and work with the Yearbook committee so every member will know which program she is to present and when. If possible, teams of two or more members should be assigned to each presentation.
The Membership committee should also be consulted in planning the open meeting during rush as the Vice President´s rushing material includes a special program.
Any program can be relevant to the lives and interests of chapter members, if imagination and planning with those interests in mind is used. Choosing the proper topics for presentation and discussion and the proper references will guide each program toward the interests of the chapter.
ALL MEMBERS SHOULD OFFER IDEAS ON ANY AND ALL PROGRAMS AND ARRANGEMENTS SHOULD BE MADE FOR A CHAPTER LIBRARIAN TO GATHER AND KEEP ALL REFERENCE POSSIBILITIES -- CLIPPINGS, PICTURES, CHARTS, BOOK TITLES, LIBRARY CALL NUMBERS.
