Reporting Expectations & Guidelines

What is it? 
One form submitted two times in a year that outlines the goals and outcomes for your group. The complete Division Unit Report is due August 15th annually. 
Every year, Chairs report out twice using a single form called the Division Unit Report. The report is divided into two sections:

Post-Conference Report
  1. Includes columns #1-6.  
    1. This report sets up the unit's goals and outcome measures for the year.  Goals are often defined at your Annual Conference business meeting, but can also be covered via email or Zoom meetings.  Goals should incorporate your unit's input and feedback.  Chairs must list at least two goals (aligned with NACADA Strategic goals) that include outcome measures.
    2. Complete columns #1-6 due for all communities. 
    3. This report is due November 15th annually.

    1. These columns summarize your progress on the goals and outcomes you listed in columns 1-6.
