Successful Advising Tips

Do:   Help them to see alternatives and provide an outside perspective Make sure to understand the importance of, and encourage OPEN DIALOGUE Don’t:    Only get to know the club leaders Say you know, when you don’t Use the club to promote your agenda

Why Advise?

YOU are that support system!!

 An advocate for THEIR purpose  Retention Retention Retention!!!
