Needs Assessment

Tonight after chapter the annual Needs Assessment workshop was held. Although only the '06 pledge class attended, it is important that the entire chapter be aware of what was discussed at this workshop. Every member has attended this workshop before at some point, and has given their input, and so should realize its importance. The workshop helps determine the current status of the chapter. It is designed to help the chapter assess strengths and weaknesses and areas of challenge or potential growth. At the workshop we establish a guideline or roadmap for chapter development. It is also necessary to define what the ideal ADPi member should be, this way during recruitment, the whole chapter knows what qualities to look for in a potential new member.
