In a year as uncertain and chaotic as 2020, it’s important to find things to rely on and look forward to. For the State Officer Team, we’re looking forward to Halloween right now. So, in this blog we’re talking all things Halloween!
This week’s blog is a little different than the average blog post. This week the officers have come together to give you their best tips for starting out the school year. These tips range from graphic design to outreach to help you and your chapter with fall recruitment efforts.
