Officer Guidelines 
Psi Chi is made up of high-­‐achieving members; in fact, scholastic excellence is a requirement. To be a leader demands more than academic accomplishment. In order to lead, you need to also be creative, wise, and dedicated. By accepting the challenge of leading your chapter, you will develop a set of skills that are attractive to a wide range of employers and to graduate school acceptance committees. Psi Chi officers learn to organize people and materials, to solve real-­world problems, to handle the finances of an organization, and to delegate—among many other skills. In the short term—you benefit by becoming eligible to apply for specific grants and awards, you have the opportunity to network with more experts, and you enjoy special programming at regional conventions. In the long term—you gain demonstrable skills that will help you be successful personally and professionally.
