The purpose of the Zeta Upsilon Chapter’s Alumni Advisory Board is to provide ongoing support and assistance to the collegiate chapter. Splitting the duties among several individuals lessens the time commitment for each alumnus, as well as increases the overall support available to the collegiate members.
This is the optimal model for involvement, as opposed to all work being done by a single chapter adviser. Each member of the board works individually with one chapter officer to support his efforts, and act as a mentor for that officer. As a board, the members work with the collegiate officers to establish goals, monitor progress, and give support to the chapter as it grows and develops.
Ensuring that each collegiate officer knows and understands his role within the chapter is crucial to his development as an officer and his ability to effectively serve the chapter. Assisting the collegian to develop beyond his role as a chapter leader and helping him prepare for experiences after graduation are important aspects of being an effective adviser.
