Chapter leaders are the sheroes and heroes of Royal Neighbors. They have the power to empower. They play a pivotal role in successfully planning, organizing, and completing chapter projects such as fund-raising for worthy causes that empower women and girls, mentoring girls to make quilts for cancer patients, and collecting food and clothing to help the hungry and homeless.
Leadership roles include: president, secretary/treasurer, event planner, and social media coordinator. The team works together to qualify for funding for a variety of projects the chapter chooses to support. Both seasoned volunteers and inexperienced helpers gain valuable training in community service by taking on leadership roles as Royal Neighbors chapter leaders.
Everything you, as a chapter leader, need to know to qualify for funding is readily available online, 24 hours a day, through the use of Royal Neighbors’ electronic forms. These convenient, easy-to-use forms result in quicker turnaround for funding, and reduces our carbon footprint by decreasing the need for paper forms.
Quarterly activity reports are used to share your successes and stories with Royal Neighbors. You can also record your members’ volunteer hours which helps your chapter qualify for additional funding for community projects.
