Recognizes an advisory board for excellence in advising a collegiate chapter.


Alpha Tau, Michigan State University

The Alpha Tau advisory board has worked hard to build a productive, positive relationship built on sisterhood with the corporation board and collegiate members.  They held three board workshops with the advisory board, corporation board, and executive council over the year to discuss the chapter's RLC goals, primary recruitment and team bonding.  The board meets in person once a month, sometimes at the chapter house and sometimes at a AB member's home.  Each advisor meets with her advisee once a month, and an AB member is present at all chapter meetings, philanthropy events, social functions, and corporation board meetings.  They also implemented a junior advisor opportunity to allow graduate students attending Michigan State a chance to shadow AB members and connect to the alumnae membership experience.
