Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Encourage superior scholastic achievement among students in their first year at institutions granting baccalaureate
    degrees; promote intelligent living, service, and a continued high standard of learning; assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    The National Council should continue to evaluate its composition, committee structure, and activities to ensure the most effective
    use of the Society’s human and fiscal resources.

    The National Council should provide for professional, efficient, cost effective operation of the National Headquarters.

    The Society should continue to accumulate monies in the perpetual fellowship fund in order to fund at least 23 graduate fellowships,
    35 undergraduate scholarships, and 10 Stemler Study Abroad scholarships and add to the value and/or number of existing
    awards as financial resources permit. The Finance Committee should review progress towards achieving these goals.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    The National Council selected a new investment firm during FY08 and committed to using that investment counselor through FY17.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    The National Council should consider ways to reduce cost without reducing the Council’s effectiveness.

    The Administrative Committee should continually review the operations of the National Office to assure that the office is adequately
    staffed and that the equipment needed to operate in an efficient and professional manner is available to the staff.

    The National Council will evaluate the results of the new investment counselor and determine future action during the next planning cycle.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    A wide range of activities and services for chapters and members is both a distinctive feature and an effective marketing tool.
    The Leadership/Programming Workshop is an example of such services, as are the Jo Anne J. Trow Undergraduate Scholarships
    and the Order of the Torch Award.
