  PROGRAM COMMITTEE . . . . . . . . . . . .
A brief outline of duties

  • Meet and assign programs preferably for the sorority year ahead, choosing for each meeting a program leader and one or two other members to help her. Use 'Sign-up Sheet'.

  • At each Chapter meeting, a member of the Program Committee should introduce those members who will present that meeting's program. And that same member of the committee should thank them later.

  • At the end of the meeting, remind the members who are assigned to present the next program. Ask them if they wish to make any announcement about what members need to bring (if anything) to participate, or if they wish to give any info that will have all members looking forward to the next program.

  • Have an emergency program ready to give at a moment's notice so that even in case of sudden illness of a member assigned to a program, there can still be a good program at every meeting. (Questionnaires from current magazines would be one idea for an emergency program. The emergency program is often called a "PROGRAM ON THE SHELF.") [refer to bulletin 'SUGGESTIONS FOR A PROGRAM ON THE SHELF'.]

  • Keep members aware that guest speakers are fine once in a while, but the benefit of programs is not only what you learn, but that you gain poise and confidence by doing it yourself.

  • Keep members aware that programs are presented by 2, 3 or 4 members, but it is every members' responsibility to enter the discussion and to prepare for it by thinking about the topic before the meeting.

  • Make a note to remind members of these points at the first meeting when the President calls for a report of the Program Committee.
