Chapter Calendar

Local chapters typically hold their activities on a monthly basis, according to a calendar of events developed early in the year.
There is no right or wrong combination of activities; just do what works best for your school. It is better to hold a few high quality events during the year than to suffer "busy bee syndrome" and run lots of events "for" the students instead of "by" the students.
Remember, it usually takes students longer to plan activities for themselves than it would take an adult. Allow ample planning time for the student team in charge of each event.
