Chapter In A Box
The Chapter In A Box is a toolkit designed for chapters of the International Society for Performance Improvement. This toolkit can be used by chapters that have been in existence for many years and would like a refresher on the best practices used to run a successful chapter, or by chapters that are just starting up.
The Chapter In A Box can be downloaded from the following URL. Please note, it is a compressed folder (1.5 mb ZIP file) containing the guide (PDF) and a sub-folder with additional support materials. Please save the file (link below) to your computer, and then right-click to "Extract All."
Each year, the Chapter Partnership Committee hosts the annual Chapter Leaders Workshop (CLW) during the annual conference. This year, the CLW Team’s theme was growing an outstanding chapter and using the Chapter in Box tool as a new resource to guide this growth.
This interactive clinic was designed for anyone with or wishing to have a local ISPI presence. Chapter practitioners demonstrated how Chapter in a Box can help to capitalize on techniques for communicating, marketing, networking, and educating current and prospective members. Examples included: Project Banks, Awards & Grants, Presenting, Publishing, CPT Assistance, Speakers and University Relationships.

Around 2005, the Chapter Partnership Committee (CPC) made available a placemat for chapter programs. This is an adaption from the original. The placemat is a one-sided Word file. The HPT Model and Code of Ethics are on the left side. Program information is on the right side. The original placemat was 11x17, and this version is legal size. Feel free to convert this to meet your needs. For example, you could move the HPT Model & Code of Ethics to the back and use the front for notes.
