What is Required of a Campus Chapter?

There are several criteria that a chapter must meet every semester to retain active membership status. These benchmarks include holding promotional events each semester to advocate for current RMI campaigns, fundraising and membership benchmarks, and assisting with the promotion of social media messaging within closed university platforms.

Campus Liaisons are invited to sit in on certain events/ meetings within RMI office and attend Semesterly Campus Chapter Appreciation Lunches. Chapter leaders are also asked to complete semesterly trainings, provide feedback at the end of each academic semester, and remain actively subscribed to RMI’s Campus Chapter Newsletter.
