2017 Chapter Leader Academy

 

The 2017 Chapter Leader Academy consists of a series of web-based interactive sessions teaching key components necessary for chapter leadership success. These events are designed to empower and inspire the SVA chapter base while providing the tools and resources for all our chapters to grow and thrive. Student veterans will learn how to design, develop, and deliver an effective student veteran organization.

 

Lesson 1 of the Chapter Leader Academy took place in July of 2017. The valuable material that was presented in SVA's prior Leadership Summits remains in Lesson 1 of the Chapter Leader Academy. In it, student veterans learned the critical components of a business plan, such as drafting a mission statement, articulating goals and objectives, building a budget, and planning for long-term sustainability.

 

Lesson 2 of the Chapter Leader Academy built on the materials presented in the lesson 1. It covered the framework of chapter leadership, as laid out in the soon-to-be released SVA Chapter Handbook, as well as the importance of diverse and regular programming. Lesson 2 also included ways to build partnerships and fundraise your way to NatCon 2018!

 

Multiple members of a chapter's leadership team are encouraged to attend the webinars to promote collaboration and shared planning in the strategic vision for their chapter during the upcoming year and beyond. The Chapter Leader Academy will motivate students to think broadly about their chapter and explore campus-level concepts that can ease a veteran's transition from the military to higher education and then to the workforce.

 

Through this web-based content and the sharing of opportunities, challenges, successes, and best practices, we aim to have student veterans fully equipped to bring meaningful and sustainable change to their campuses and local communities.
