PHASE LEADERSHIP ROLES PROGRESSION While FeelGood only requires 5 core leadership roles be fulfilled, chapters’ leadership structures typically evolve to become more sophisticated as the chapter itself develops. Below is one potential progression for a chapter’s leadership team. Expanding your leadership team can either be a response to changes or a way to inspire growth. Being able to sustain a strong leadership team - no less grow one – is also a key indicator that your chapter has eﬀectively fostered a culture of empowerment.
PHASE I 5 leaders
PHASE II 5 to 7 leaders
Secretary/ Comm. Coordinator
PHASE III 6 to 8 leaders
Education & Recruitment Chair
PHASE IV 7 to 9 leaders
Fundraising Chair/ Cheese Pts. Chancellor
Marketing & PR Chair
Outreach & Events Coordinator
Notice a recommended maximum of 9 leaders, though 11 potential positions are shown here. Depending on how your chapter best functions, you may want to determine which roles constitute a “core” leadership team that meets weekly and is responsible for major decisions. From there, leaders can work with committees on specific projects, inviting members to glimpse the various positions and begin imagining themselves leading the chapter some day! Ultimately, as long as the 5 core roles are being filled, your chapter has a lot of autonomy in terms of organizing itself, what titles to utilize, and how to share responsibilities!
