Each chapter receives at least one consultation visit by headquarters staff each semester. Consultation visits consist of a primary presentation with several smaller workshops as well as 1-on-1 meetings with chapter officers, advisors, association leaders, and campus officials. These visits are designed to best support each chapter/colony individually while offering a larger perspective of their local concerns and provide resources for improvement. The staff are available to help chapters and colonies in all facets of chapter life and operation, including organization, motivation, and leadership development.
