PI TAU SIGMA ANNUAL CHAPTER REPORTS
Each chapter needs to submit a full annual chapter report electronically, and a 500-word summary report that needs to be entered in each chapter's page. Reports should be submitted after April 15 and before June 30.
Even though submitting both reports before the June 30th deadline is one of the requirements for a chapter to acquire the good standing status, please try to submit your reports, even after the deadline, for the sake of documenting what you have accomplished and the history of your chapter and Pi Tau Sigma, in general.
These two reports should not be the same. The annual report should include pictures from the initiations and activities during the year.
Please follow the report format described below when submitting your full report.
Activities best be documented with accompanying pictures, flyers, etc. The extent of Pi Tau Sigma's contribution in organizing events/activities and level of participation needs to be documented. Please make sure to highlight all volunteer community activities and charity fundraisers.
All reports should electronically be submitted to National Secretary-Treasurer.
FULL ANNUAL CHAPTER REPORT
<current academic year, i.e.> 20xx-20xx
<your complete chapter name, i.e.> South Dakota State Tau Chi
In this segment indicate your initiation procedure including selection process, requirements from initiates, initiation ceremony and rituals, and celebration. You must include pictures of the newly inducted members for each initiation, including makeups, along with a picture of the chapter officers and advisor. You also need to document dates and numbers for all initiations held. No need to list names of initiates.
B. Chapter Activities
Include all chapter activities for the academic year. This will involve fundraisers, community services, university projects, etc. Please give sufficient details if the project involved other societies and if so what was your level of participation. To support your statements you may include photos, local paper articles, etc. Discuss your chapter meetings, banquets, convention participation and anything else that your chapter is involved with.
Include anything else here that does not fit the above two categories that will strengthen your report.
Please e-mail your Annual Chapter Report as a PDF attachment to the Secretary-Treasurer. The total length of the report including attachments cannot exceed 10 pages. In preparing the report use Times New Roman Font 12, with single space and 1 inch margins in all four sides.

After April 15, all chapters please enter a 500-word summary of your activities during the calendar year into your chapter page. Please emphasize volunteer community activities, charity fundraisers, and chapter activities relating to service to the department and profession. The extent of each chapter's contribution in organizing events/activities and level of participation should be documented. Above your new paragraph, please enter the period of the reported activities, i.e. 20xx-20xx, and the author’s name and their chapter position in a single line in bold face.
