Not all get ribbons for participation. The New Directors Program is not an event to experience, but an evaluated training with strong recommendation upon completion. The extensive application and assessment process at the beginning builds expectation and focus for growth for each leader who enters. At the end of the program, each participant will receive a letter of recommendation and affirmation based on the objectives of the training, which reflect the skills identified through a Chi Alpha Director job description. Candidates receive one of the following recommendations:
- Full recommendation to direct a Chi Alpha chapter and host a CMIT program when able.
- Endorsed to direct a local Chi Alpha chapter but recommend further development prior to applying to host a CMIT.
- Not recommended to be a director and encouraged to complete a full CMIT or further experience under a veteran Chi Alpha Director in a healthy chapter prior to directing.
