Roll Up Your Sleeves, Changemakers: Creating Your Service Plan
Track: Chapter Management Track
America needs new leadership in the 21st century, and academic institutions are at the helm of our future. What divides us as citizens can be eradicated through service, and SVA Chapters are stewards of the 3 civic responsibilities of service: prepare to serve, answer the call, and call to others. What's more, leaders in service can transition to leaders in business. Join the Mason Veteran Patriots (NatCon2018 Business Plan Competition Finalists) for an iron-sharpens-iron action lab and return to your university with a Service Plan complete with goals, objectives, strategies, and tactics. Attendees will work in a group-based environment to create the plan from inception to operation. As an idea incubator, MVP feels knowledge-sharing and service-mindedness are critically important for growth-focused chapters nationwide. In addition to increasing student success and excellence, "Creating Your Service Plan" provides opportunities for leadership and deeper connection to the campus community.
